I hate people that tailgate you and will not pass. Last person that did that to me, I slammed on my breaks on a corner and they almost hit the gardrail to avoid hittin me. I would never do that if I was driving my focus though =)

1) Big trucks that carry gravel
2) Left lane squatters
3) People that cut in front of you just to get another car space ahead in traffic
4) Rubber neckers
5) People in expensive cars that think they own the road swerving racklessly in between others
6) People that poor drinks or throw litter out of their car
7) People that smoke and hang their cigarettes out the window

Ahh yes. I forgot about that one. Unfortunatly, there is a asphalt plant up on the mountain about 5 miles from my house. Always seem to get behind them and they tear up the roads.

1) people who don't use their turn signals, slam on their brakes and turn/change lanes as if they're the gods of the road!
2) people who use their cell phones and don't pay attention to what's going on around them...
3)people doing 75km/h in a 100km/h zone!! those piss me off so much...come on, it says 100!!
4)people who do all they can to get in front of you only to turn left/right 20 meters down the road...what the F[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]

These 2 things rarely happened to me when I had my truck....F150 with a 9 1/2" lift sittin on 35's. I used to slam my brakes when people rode my ass in the truck, but now I'm afraid to because I'll probably total the Focus.
Whoa, I bet no one did mess with you with that big azz truck!! What are you talking about though? Slam on your brakes if someone's riding your butt (even in the focus) cause even if it does total it, they'll have to pay. In every accident, if someone rear ends someone else (even if you're on a hill drifting back and you roll into someone) it's their fault! They're following too close. Their insurance will pay for it and you could end up with and RS bumper and fender!!! So slam them brakes boy! (Just my humble oppinion)
