1) Not using your turn signal... then getting pissed off because people got disgruntled because they don't know why you stopped.
2) People that go more than 5 miles below the speed limit
3) People that pass more than one car at a time
4) People that ride my ass.... get the hell back! Especially if I am already speeding....
5) People that stop for no reason.... seriously I've seen this happen... I take a somewhat rural highway to school and I've seen people just come to a stop in the middle of no where and then start going again... wtf?!
6) People that stop like more than one car length from the line at an intersection...
7) Some of those "soccer moms" that drive their big SUVs and think they own the road.
8) People that just pull out in front of you, and I'm talking close as in I gotta slam on the brakes to avoid hitting them...
9) Toyota SUV drivers...

One of my friends had a good example of #1 happen... he was following this soccer mom driving a venture and they just slowed down on the road to almost a stop and moved over to the right hand side. So my friend figured they were just pulling over for some reason and moved a little into the center of the road to start to pass them... then suddenly they swerve left and the woman gives him the finger for cutting her off and pulls into some driveway as my friend slams on the brakes and lays on the horn. If the woman had just used her signal...

Hmmm, okay I have to call this one out. You're *supposed* to have a good space between you and the car in front of you, even in traffic. At speed, it provides you a "space cushion" that allows you enough reaction time to safely stop the car if necessary. In traffic, it allows you to roll ahead at a continuous pace, albeit slowly. I dunno about you, but I prefer moving ahead slowly to the STOP/GO/STOP/GO/STOP/GO that you'll get if you follow too closely in traffic. But it's all a moot point anyway, because if you leave yourself enough space for this, someone will cut in front of you to get one car length ahead in traffic...

People who stop in the middle of the road and think that they're the only person on the road. Also, ones who don't pay attention to traffic lights and sit there after 15 seconds of being green talking to their passenger or on the cell phone, and then flick you off when you honk at them to go.
Last night I was coming back from the grocery store and I was in a pretty good mood, but this idiot in front of me decided to stop (IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD) and read his map because he's too stupid to get directions before he gets in his car. I can admit that I'm not the BEST driver in the world, but I am at least courteous, and I pay attention to what I'm doing and to what other drivers are doing. That's all I want in return. I really think they should be more careful with who they give driver's licenses to.

How does Australian $ convert to American $? In the US the WRX is $25,000.

Hmm posted speed limit for the interstate here is 65, and cops pull you over if you go 10mph or more over!! I got pulled over for doing 72 once on the interstate, and that was just stupid!
