Number 2 should read;

A driver changing lanes multiple times on a busy freeway trying to get ahead.

Oh and I should have added the option of people driving painfully slow on a hard to pass mountain road.

Just for the record "no contrar" is a combination of an infinitive verb and a negative expression... And it makes absolutely no sense. I think you were trying to utilize the common French expression "au contraire" which means "to the contrary."

Just thought I'd put that out there because you like to pretend to be smart.

Hahaha I do that. Actually, when someone is tailgating me and gets in the other lane to pass, that's when I speed up to where I'm faster than the car in the other lane, essentially boxing out the other guy.

A person cutting you off across a left turn lane is pretty dangerous. It happens so rarely I couldn't vote for it. Now the slow poke who speeds up when you try to pass? There is a special place in hell for those people. Right next the people who pace the car next to them.

I'm gonna say it too. Women are terrible drivers because they will literally try to do everything and anything but focus on driving when they drive. They're on the phone, yapping to their friend about nothing. They text while they drive and usually end up driving ten miles below the speed limit while they're typing something that is absolutely 100% unnecessary. They don't anticipate their destinations and then when their turn they were too absent-minded to see coming approaches, they scramble across multiple lanes to jam into the turn lane they should have known was coming several minutes ago. At red lights they have the attention span of a six month old, and use those times to dig though their purse, put on makeup, pick at their teeth, look around at literally nothing - anything besides watching the light turn green. When entering into any shopping complex, mini-mall, parking lot and or any intersection without a traffic light, they will slow to a snails pace, looking around confused, or just stop completely at every intersection whether they have to or not because they have no clue what they are doing or how use a car.

My worst is the a-holes that tailgate me when the road is snow packed, the driver ahead is going 15 mph, and I'm going downhill with a curve ahead. Shaffers crossing on 285 is where it happens the most.

you should have put in the option all of the above..

excepting #1 they all piss me off..

The only one that I would report is the moron that changes lanes 8 plus times in traffic zipping through traffic over a short distance.. In fact I have called 911 a few times on this behaviour..

A few times I sped up a bit to get to the next light to wave at him like hey dumb ass I was doing the speed limit and we both got here at the same time..

Have had a few almost go pale when I've done that a few well gave me the finger.. they got the 911 call and reported their Lic number..

Hoping some where that they got a ticket for dumbassery because there was a report of them being reckless..

oh many times but made sure they had no other lanes to change into.. All the cars I drive have 4 wheel disc brakes and loads of tread on the ground most have at least 235 in width..

Wonder how many have had to change underwear when they got to work..

A few have tried to switch lanes and get ahead.. most do not get the power of a big V8 or a turbo until they have lost to one..

let the dumb ass think about it for a few minutes.. Once I'm clear of them I get out of the lane and get back down to the speed limit..

I said being cut off because it happens the most often. It is the driver who pulls out in front of you and doesn't try to speed up with the flow of traffic. You also look in your rear view mirror and notice not one damn car behind you! So he slows everyone down in my lane so he can save about 3 seconds instead of just waiting that 3 seconds until we pass. Morons!
I don't give a **** if a driver is going in and out of traffic as long as he is continuing to flow past everyone. It is when they make you hit your brakes because they cut in your lane too close to you that will piss me off.

Gonna up this one ..

all of that and it being a Mexican that for the most part can't read the street signs and is going 45 in the fast lane on the freeway looking all over for something in Spanish..

Now it might not be a problem where y'all live but on the border we have a saying watch out for yellow license plates..

New mexico had Yellow plates and Chihuahua also did the neighboring states to us..


The most dangerous place in EL Paso is the stretch of interstate 10 from the border crossing and Walmart/ Sams shopping center.. and jsut up teh street is a shopping mall..

they have had to change the length of the exits for that area three times in the past five years.. Not sure if the last change wil keep that area from being a parking lot (freeway) during the holidays..

My biggest pet peeve since moving to Denver is the cyclists.

And I'm not anti-bike per se, and I can even deal with them slowing down traffic. I just get nervous around them. If something happens and I can't stop, I could easily kill one of these guys. And while it might not be my "fault" it's not something I'd like to be involved in, obviously.

I hate it when I'm on a two lane street that is a 35, but its in the middle of nowhere, and should be a 45 (which is what everyone pretty much drives on it anyway) and you get stuck behind an old lady that can barely see over the wheel and is driving 29, which leads to 10 cars piling up behind you, and the whole time you just wanna get home to take a massive dump, and then when she finally turns she slows down to 10 mph before FINALLY getting in the turning lane at the last second, even though the turning lane has been there for the last half mile.... I gotta say drivers over the age of 60 pretty much piss me off in general.

RhymesayersDU
07-21-2012, 11:09 AM
Let me say this in defense of people who speed up when being passed, since it's come up a few times. There's another side to that.

I drive no slower than the speed limit, and in general no more than 10 over. I try to keep it in that reasonable range, mainly to try and not get a ticket. I don't have a radar or anything like that. Anyways, if somebody passes me or a group of cars is passing me by, I feel like I'm an asshole who is holding up traffic, and I never want to be that.

SO, I will increase my speed to keep with traffic. Now I'm not going to intentionally block you from passing, because I'm not a jerk. I'm not one of those idiots who takes getting passed as some insult. But I will increase my speed simply to keep with everybody around me.

RhymesayersDU
07-21-2012, 11:29 AM
One more then I'll stop spamming up the thread:

The bane of my existence is and will forever be the idiots who can't be bothered to pay attention to where they are or the other drivers on the road.

Example:
This gem of a human being will be in the middle lane approaching a light that they need to turn right or left at. So rather than making a mental note to keep going and turn around when it's clear, they simply stop in the middle of the road and throw on the blinker. Their time is clearly more valuable then yours. They don't care that they're stopping everybody behind them, they don't care that they could cause an accident, because they need to change lanes, and clearly it's their world and we're all just living in it.

Conversely, these assholes also like to cruise in turn-only lanes, and then stop that lane to get out of it. They ignored the lines on the street, they ignored the signs, or were just oblivious to them, and now they need to get over. The world better stop, because they need to change lanes!

I try not to get into road rage type behavior, but I will block these assholes whenever possible. I will cut people with out of state plates some slack, because even with GPS a new city can be confusing, you're out of your element, etc. But in-state people I assume know where they're going and should know better. No mercy for them.
