Well then there are the other people complaining about people not cruising at constant speeds and having to speed up and slow down...

Thankfully ACC has changed that for me. New cars also shut off the blinker after a certain amount of time.

I do maintain constant speed. But if there is another car in front of me, keeping me from clearing the tractor, I’m not going. If my lane is clear, I’m blowing through.

I had a driver get a blow out on his drivers side front tire while he was in the middle lane on the interstate at highway speed. The blowout caused him to veer hard left. He hit an embankment and died. If someone was on his left, they would likely have died too. RIP.

Ok...but that's not a constant speed.

LOL! And exactly how do you maintain a constant speed if there is someone ahead of you going slower? In a perfect world, on a clear roadway with traffic spaced ideally you can maintain a constant speed. Maybe I should fly up his ass and get stuck with him in front of me and an 80,000# vehicle to my right with no way out? I see you're in Alaska. Ever try driving in NYC/NJ during rush hour?

Im sure this has been posted before in this thread but the one thing that drives me nuts is the driver who drives super slow when its single lane then as soon as the single lane turns to two lanes or a passing lane they turn into Dale Earnhardt so you have to go ridiculous speeds to pass them. Drives me nuts! Happens every time.

I live in a condo too on the first floor and right outside my windows is a stop light that cars always get stuck at. As soon as the light changes, there's always a moron who starts these really long honks if the cars in front don't begin moving within a millisecond after the light changes to green. Whatever happened to the polite, brief honk?

Oh yeah, that reminds me, people who are playing on their phone at stoplights. If the light turns and they don't go, I lay on my horn till they do.

When you're driving down a 2 lane highway and the light turns yellow, you would have been first in your lane but somebody from the other lane moves in front of you to be first. It never fails that person will have a side by side "slowcelleration race" for 3 miles trapping you behind them

Ok...I'm SURE these have been said but these are high on my list of annoyances.

1: When I am getting on the freeway and someone is in the slow lane and the lane next to
them is empty but they won't move over to let me in.

2: People that have not figured out how to merge on mixed on-ramps. Its simple people
one goes, the next goes, then the next goes. Its not that hard

3: Prius drivers...thats all...just can't stand em. LOL

When the car is swerving, and you see the light of a cell phone in there hand.
When your trying to merge, and a car speeds up, not allowing you in.

People that double park on purpose, especially if they park close and do it. If you double park yards away from others, no one really cares. In my previous job with the company car, I parked next to them so they couldn't get in.

The thought came to mind today when I saw a new Lexus ES double parked. I just thought "Your Camry driving ass needs to calm down."

Going slow in the left lane and driving with high beams on. Probably the most annoying things for me. They're usually Toyota or Honda drivers.

I agree with that one. If you steal first place from me you better take off like a bat out of hell when the light turns green otherwise what was the point of moving into that lane?

These guys in the left lane (fast lane). At least this guy is being somewhat honest.

Another one for me: people who get butthurt easily and start road raging.

I may tailgate people out of habit but don't have bad intentions. But recently had somebody throw a fit over it and start swerving into my lane, making hand gestures, honking, etc.

How miserable/unfulfilling is your life that you act out like that over somebody tailing you? They must not be busy enough at work to have energy for this.

Yeah well, tailgating is just as bad, people that are driving closer than they’ll be able to react and stop. Same you said applies to tailgaters.

Yeah I agree. I get annoyed when I get tailed. But I'll always just move out of the way rather than going full road rage. There's enough stuff to be stressed out about in life.
