Are you one of those annoying hemorrhoids that insist on following so close the person in front of you can't even see your headlights?
Or do you prefer hanging out in the passing lane doing 5 under the posted limit?
Perhaps you enjoy texting whilst drifting into oncoming traffic?
Maybe you're so engrossed in your cellphone conversation that you don't see the need to stop for the red light up ahead?


So let's discuss your favorite pet peeves out on the road. And if you are one of
the aforementioned please let us know so we can all brow beat you.

I see a lot of "I just got my permit/licsense" threads so maybe some of
our noob drivers will read this thread and not become a dick.
Poll coming.

I speed a little to much, nothing to excessive though. I also do a little bit of texting, but I try to keep it to a limit or when I'm stoped.

I hate that everyone on the freeway feels the need to go 10 over the speed limit. I mean come on, is 65/70 miles an hour not fast enough for you? In the long run, that extra speed isn't even worth the amount of time it saves you, and it ends up making me look like a dick who's holding up traffic for actually following the rules of the road. Don't worry, speedfreaks, I stay out of the passing lane. I'd hate for you assholes to put a ding in my bumper.

I follow most rules on the road except stupid ones and assume everyone else on the road is retarded.

I don't drive but my Dad seems to have the attitude that everyone on the road is either: a woman, old, or asain and therefore in his opinion stupid and incapable of driving aswell as him. He's fun to be in a car with.
#7
I speed to much.
I hate people who drive too slow.
I hate it when people dont look and pull out infront of you..

Almost got sideswiped by an old man on a roundabout today..
#8
I drive 5-10 MPH over the limit, but I'm cautious and mindful of other drivers. I never tailgate people, and I slow down if conditions are unfavorable.

I seriously have visions of me sideswiping asshole drivers. No one would care if I just nudged their bumper a little, hell they'd probably praise me for it.

At least you're not one of those guys that takes it upon themselves to park it in the fast lane and prevent anybody from doing a little over the limit.

I'm not going to lie, I drive like an idiot a fair amount of the time. Usually I'll stick to about 10 km/h over the limit, but there's some times when I'm almost late for work where I'll be doing 75 in a 50 zone.

I made it to work in 4 minutes yesterday.

Exceeding the speed limit doesn't always make you an idiot. Riding somebodies ass at 70 does though.

I try to follow all the traffic rules etc, but you always screw up at times lol. And I don't rlly like completely empty lanes, cause I really can't help myself there. In those cases I WILL speed a little bit sooner or later xD

I generally drive about 5mph over the limit, as everyone does. Unless there are cameras about.

I like to think I'm a decent driver as well. The only thing that really pisses me off is when you stop at the side of the road to let someone past who's coming the other way (like, when there's only enough space for one car to get through the gap) and they don't wave/flash lights to say thank you. That pisses me off somthing rotten and the people that do it generally get abuse shouted at them and a finger stuck at them.

This is pretty much my driving style, may be a little too quick in familiar surroundings.


I hate people that tail gate you at night down country lanes and then over take on blind corners etc, these people are just retarded, and should probably crash.

I also hate grannies than go at 20mph in a 30 for no apparent reason! You can be charged for going too slow as well as too fast you know!


Heres a peve of recent events in England,

I'm lost, I hate a thin, icy, snowy, wet hill to climb in my car and this d**k head in a van decides to come down the hill while I'm trying to get up and refuses to pull over, so I pull over and let him pass, no thank you or anything, the first hill start I went no where, lukily I reved it like a b*tch and got started on the 2nd attempt but coated my nice white car in mud

Yeah I stay away from that ****.

I used to race occasionally. When I lived in Peterborough I raced up Water Street a couple times, and got up to about 100 km/h, in a 50 zone. Right past a police station, too.

I have no reason to drive - It costs about £5000 to get into in the UK and until you're 30 you'll be paying £1000's more because of the fraudulent insurance system we have. I DID ride a motorbike for a while, but it cost too much and doesn't keep you healthy, so I sold it and went back to cycling.

When I am on the road I try and hold up land-raider (or SUV) drivers as much as possible, simply 'cus they are an arrogant breed who can barely see past their huge noses, let alone their tank-like vehicles. Also, is anyone familiar with the citroen picasso? If there was ever a car purely made for fat ****ers who only ever drive to asda (or walmart...) and back, that is it - they are the scum of the earth, and I am proud to say I yell abuse at every single one I see, ever.

Just 'cus I pick on people with large gas-guzzlers, don't go thinking that ecology is the only reason why I dislike them. The people who drive these monstrosities are emasculated fat guys who work in offices and have to drive an overpriced monstrosity just to feel like a man again - I feel it would be best for all of the world if they were to be gassed. Also, the only people who only truly deserve to drive Land-Raiders are farmers, because they work hard and deserve what they earn.

The only people who will disagree with me will be people who have big fat ****ing rich daddies that they want to defend, and you know it.

i do go over the speed limit most of the time though. on regular roads i probably average between 5-10 mph over the limit. on the highway im usually about 10-15 mph over the speed limit, maybe more.
#24
depending on where i am going and if there is a time i am supposed to be there at, and if im late or not, i drive either by the rules and polite and ****

or like a complete and total asshole who acts like he owns the road.

This.

To people who have a problem with those of us who just go a little over the limit without assramming: Would you really rather everyone go the same speed on the highways? You'd almost always be in a huge mashup of cars, and if one person made one false move, they'd wreck everybody. Light speeders keep traffic flowing organically. Or inorganically.

I think I am a fairly decent driver, I always indicate and usually let people go. But I do go a little bit faster than the speed limit. I hate people who don't indicate on roundabouts especially when means I miss my opportunity to go. If I let someone go and the other person does not signal thank you back I get annoyed. And tailgaters really piss me off, I had one follow me all the way back from work once less than a cars distance away, so I purposely slowed down to 10-15 MPH in a 30, he began flashing me and attempted an overtake but I did not allow that. He had full beam on me after that for the rest of the journey, what a ****.

Old people should not be allowed to drive either.

I guess I drive fast but I have not had an accident in the 20 years I've been driving. Last time I was in Canada, I got 3 speeding tickets in the 1 week I was there. Cops are always hiding with a radar gun in some stupid 50km zone. Lucky where I am now they don't enforce any rules. Just yesterday I went flying past the cops over a solid yellow line on a corner, speeding. The thought never really crossed my mind that they would pull me over, they didn't. In fact they didn't even glance over. In Canada it would have been a major problem and huge expense. It has its disadvantages too though, lots of people die here on the roads. That's why I drive a big 4x4 pickup truck. (I have been up on 2 wheels a few times after swerving to avoiding accidents, never been over though, but one time I was perfectly balanced and went over 100mtrs down the shoulder before I came back down...it was a good adrenaline rush).

How about the guys that pass you. Dive into your lane right in front of you and make a right turn? Damn that burns my ass.

One of my friends has gotten the idea that "fitting" into a space means literally that: his car can physically be placed between the other cars. Riding with him is always "exciting."

that mashup is inevitable. Even when people speed, all of the speeders end up grouping together behind people going the speed limit, or they group together when they realize they're already going 15 over and don't want to go any faster. It's pretty annoying, too, because all it takes is 5 seconds of slowing down to move into those large open spaces and eliminate the grouping problem. I'm not one to complain, seeing as I love having that large open space to myself, but it's a shame that so much space is wasted.

I tend to stick to the laws. A lot of my friends are awful drivers. Very rarely indicating and going 50+ through 30 zones. And yet they all claim to be safer drivers than me.
#39
i drive in an overly cautious manner. i rarely go over the speed limit plus 5. i never pass anyone, unless i am on a multiple lane highway. i hardly ever even drive on the highway, unless it is completely necessary.

Speed Limits are just a suggestion
"I can make it through there" is the unofficial motto of the driver
Indicating once the corner or roundabout has gone is acceptable
Horns are there for a reason
Manners cost you nothing: if someone lets you through you WILL give them a wave or flash of appreciation.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
