People not thinking of other people is my biggest pet peeve. Have some freaking courtesy people!

Anyway, my other pet peeve is people on the open highway (mainly Midwest 4-lanes) that don't use cruise control and then get in my way because they speed up to pass then slow down next to another driver. I mean, do they like getting cramps holding the pedal in place for hours?

A couple things:
1st is more of a crappy situation. I'm driving in the right lane coming up on a slow car/semi or whatever, and there's a faster car in the left lane coming up on me. I know that if I pull out now, I'm going to be a jerk and block the faster guy from passing, but if I don't I'm going to have to slow down and turn off cruise control, maybe get passed by everyone behind this guy because there's no room for me.

2nd I was driving through Seattle early in the morning, freeway is completely empty except for one guy ahead of me (car 1) and someone merging onto the freeway next to him (car 2). Merger comes in front of him, so car 1 moves left to pass. Car 2 moves over just as car 1 begins accelerating, so car 1 moves over again. Car 2, again, cuts off car 1. This keeps happening across 5 lanes all the way to the carpool lane. Finally, car 1 just moved right instead. I imagine he was giving the other driver a few birdies.

I hate when some guy in a hot smoky diesel that is lifted comes right up next to me with his tail pipe in my window and spools up and covers me with a black smoke cloud! In AZ i have window down most the time!

Drivers in the fast lane doing the speed limit who don't move over with the attitude of "I'm doing the speed limit". SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT. it's in the manual dumbass.

Tailgaters....period.

Especially when someone tailgates me, I move over to let him/her by and they don't pass.

Someone who rides right next to you and there's not much traffic around. Drives me NUTZ!!

When the light turns green and the person in front doesn't go. You give the two quick honks and they give you a dirty look like you're the bad guy. That's when the honk turns into one long one!!

People with the friggen poodle sitting on their lap sticking it's head out the drivers window...while they're driving. Not just a huge distraction, but we'll see how much they love that poodle when the airbag deploys!!

well i can solve one of your problems, Marks93...by pass the 2 little honks, just lay on it when they dont go, they usualy step on it thinking they were stiing there even longer than they were! but then again I am that guy who thinks the words 'inter-section' and 'elapsed- time ' mean the same thing.

My girlfriend's terrier (who loves the hell out of me) does this. Sometimes, I'll let her sit in my lap and I've gotten to the point where I can drive normally while she's in my lap, but EVERYONE around me is staring at her. An adorable black terrier sticking its head out of a white Mustang? How distracting. She's more distracting though, than the car itself of course. I'll have people not paying attention to the light turning green because they're watching her try to stick her head out of the window, start sniffing, and just be downright cute.

But I never feel safe when she sits my lap (I also dont like my junk being stomped on when she tries to stick her head out the window), so I try to keep her in the passenger seat. I really do care about that dog though, so I'm going to start trying to hook her up to a seatbelt.

I hate all drivers.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

In my Mustang, I try to get away from these people by blowing them away or moving over and braking. Speeding up is usually my pick.
In my truck, though, they get a 5 second count and then HARD brake lights! Only a couple scratches on the chrome so far...:hihi:

^ i do almost the same, slow down about 20-30 mph under the limit, if they fall back then fine, if not i floor it to get away, they get back on my tail, brake check till im completely stopped.

If i ever get a nice truck it will be alot worse for the tailgaters.
