What is your driving-related pet peeve?
 
What is your driving-related pet peeve? Here is one of mine: people who drive with their fog lights on in clear weather. :mad:

I have many, but one that really bothers me is driving in the rain without headlights on. In some states, it's law....wipers on, lights on.

HW 10-14-2003 12:53 PM

driving and talking on the phone. :mad:

Jetfire 10-14-2003 12:55 PM

People who rest their legs/feet on the dashboard. Passengers AND drivers.

Left lane squatters

Nick325xiT 5spd 10-14-2003 12:59 PM

Anyone going slower than I want to go.

Oh yeah, and cops. :neener:

Those who feel the need to clean their windshields at 80mph with a roadster behind them. :mad: I already had a shower!

Especially annoying when everyone is driving into a sunset (or sunrise) and one jerk decides it's time to clean... causing the 4 cars behind him to have to slow down due to even greater reduced visibility due to over-spray. Not to mention the hazard they pose by not being able to see during the process.

being blocked by others when I'm driving at insane speeds on the leftlane on the Autobahn :bigpimp:

doubletee 10-14-2003 01:03 PM

I'm not sure any of 'em know what that stalk on the left side of the steering wheel column is. :mad:

I don't care where they're going, just when! :tsk:

You missed a spot! :eeps:

Bruce128iC 10-14-2003 01:13 PM

People who smoke in front of me when I have the top down. Not only do I get the benefit of their stink, but when they flick their butt out, I'm always afraid it's going to end up in my car. Use the ashtray in your damn car people! :mad:

Nicky I take offense to that :stickpoke

I hate people who don't use their singal when turning or changing lanes.
Why do manufactures put them in cars if people aren't going to use them :mad:

Local jurisdictional revenue enhancement performed under the guise of speed enforcement.

In other words, pulling people over who are just driving, safely, but in excess of the posted limits in a production line manner and writing meaty tickets.

You wish! :rofl:

Actually this is the same as my biggest pet peeve...people flicking their cigarette butts out. :mad:

Jackasses shouldn't drive. Period. :p

Lately, it's been crazy or unaware pedestrians that cross the street from any where, and at any time.

Actually, sometimes a yield sign is posted right before a mini loopy on-ramp merges into very fast traffic. In this case, one must stop since there is no way to go moderate speed and then cut in, simply no time to make relative judgement on how fast the approching vehicles are going. So, must wait til train of cars stop showing up. I know I've stopped at a lot of yield signs when the situation is very tricky.

However, I do see your point very clearly when you have perfect view of on coming traffic, especially when there is not a single car coming in the main lane. :angel:
