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:

Honestly officer, a deer jumped out in front of me and I had to slam on the brakes. Its not my fault that idiot was so close behind me he could read the clock on MY radio

Oh and no, not in the Stang. Ford really makes some strong bumpers on F150's

Yeah, that and other variations on the same theme -- camping out in the passing lane and causing various problems.

Here in Rhode Island and Mass,, we need to invest in about 1,000 "keep right except to pass" signs and post them in the median . . . but it probably won't help, those people are completely oblivious to everything that is going on around them.

People in this area *FREAK OUT* whenever it rains, like they've never seen the stuff before. I've seen some of the most dangerous, erratic driving while the roads are wet. Either that, or they come to a crawl and stomp on the brakes every once in a while for no good reason, reducing traffic to a trickle while it's sprinkling lightly.

Every single time I'm towing a trailer, I'll have people randomly turn in front of me or cut me off. Because F150's with trailers can stop on a dime.

This. The scariest thing is when someone runs out in front of you towing on a highway. I destroyed a pair of front rotors on a pickup once because of this.

And:

Hitting their brakes or stopping on an on-ramp.

Stopping to make a turn.

Stopping for speed bumps in stock-ride-height SUVs. I can understand in sports cars and even modern sedans, but if you're in an Expedition, you don't need to stop for the damned thing.

That's my 2nd least favorite thing. I'll never begin to understand why people think they should merge into traffic that's moving at 55+ mph by going 35mph and then hitting the brakes.

Drivers who post 2005+ Mustang questions in the 4.6 forum, post gear/exhaust/cai threads in the 4.6 or 5.0 forums, or post street racing crap in the drag racing forum.

What do other drivers do that annoy me? They share the road with me.

Seriously, though, I'm not that bad. I just enjoy my space, without invaders pulling wild stunts or mindless maneuvers around me. It happens WAY too often.

For some reason the drivers here think that the left lane is for their use only. It isn't the passing lane, it's their personal cruising lane. How dare you think that driving above their speed is an option.


We should all know that the left lane is for those who:

1. Drive at least 10 MPH below the speed limit.
2. Use their cell phone, especially for texting.
3. Repeatedly tap the brake pedal.
4. Sight see
5. Have to make constant eye contact with the person they're talking to.
6. Save wear and tear on their directional signals by not using them.
7. Actively petition lawmakers to create and enforce road rage laws.

Haha that sounds exactly like the left lane drivers that I know and hate.

+1, that's what piss me off the most! When someone is on the left lane, doesn't go faster than the right lane, and we're all stuck behind; that really pisses me off!!!
