Kudos for starting this thread!! I'm off on my ED adventure next month and have been sooo looking forward to sharing the road with drivers that actually 'get' what it means to share the road.

You nailed it... Accords, Camrys, Altimas, Civics, Corollas and... worst of all -- the F*$#ing PRIUS! Of course, statistically, the reason why these are the most frequent offenders is because they're some of the most widely sold cars in the country. So the odds of one clogging up a lane in front of you are exponentially greater. Additionally, people who buy these cars are buying an "appliance" not a "driver's car". They're no more thrilled about driving than they are about making toast.

LOL! Must just be your state. Here it's the offenders I listed above (predominately the PRIUS in my neck of the woods -- hypermiling in the fast lane. WTF? )

they feel they are in the right because they are within the speed limit 65... but come on, ever heard of flow of traffic? oh and they never exit on the carpool for the mile long caravan behind them, and it causes a mad drag race whenever an carpool exit comes around.
EXACTLY! I think this moves to the top of my list of pet peeves. And it's usually a Prius with one driver and no passengers -- they get the special HOV exception so they can drive in the carpool lane. Grrrrr!
