Slow drivers are annoying me terribly today.

I'm waiting to make a left-hand turn at an intersection. There are 4 cars coming straight from the other direction. If they HURRY UP AND GO I can make my turn. Nope. They decide to take four city blocks to get up to the speed limit and I have to wait through two more lights.

THEN, I'm getting onto the interstate. The on-ramps are designed so that you can SPEED UP and MATCH traffic's speed so that you can MERGE. That is what on-ramps ARE FOR! If they wanted people to stop, they would have put a STOP LIGHT in. So what happens? The guy in front of me does 40 on the on ramp onto a 70 mph interstate and I nearly get creamed by a semi-truck as my lane ends.

THEN, morning traffic is backed up. Everyone is making a left-hand turn at a turning arrow. THREE SEPARATE PEOPLE wait until the car in front of them has COMPLETELY cleared the intersection before beginning their own turn. Out of 30 cars waiting to make the turn, only about 6 actually get to go. YOU CAN FOLLOW A CAR THROUGH A TURN! You DO NOT need 6 car-lengths of clearance in order to make a 10 mph turn! OTHER PEOPLE ARE WAITING!

All of this happened to me this morning between 7:30 and 8:30 AM. This happens to me every weekday.

Look kiddies (and bad drivers everywhere), slowly coming up to speed does give you better gas mileage - for all of 3 seconds. If you're lucky, you'll save $5 a year. BUT, there is no better vehicular safety feature than GETTING OUT OF THE FUCKING WAY!! Cops tell you that "speed kills" and that is somewhat true, but 10 times more accidents (fewer fatalities, more accidents) are caused by people GOING SLOW. People get rear-ended when they don't speed up at a green light. People get t-boned when they leisurely try to make a left-hand turn. People get run off the road when they take an interstate on-ramp too slow.

It does not take 3 blocks to make it up to the 35 mph speed limit. Hit the gas. Get where you're going and stop screwing over other people by making room for everyone. There are other people on the road, so don't fart around in traffic.

Wow. I feel better. Thanks.

It isn't just road rage. I hate how inconsiderate people are. Some drive as if they are the most important people in existence. Let other people go! The roads are paid for with tax money, they are not an individual's sole property. Just because one person wants to take in the sights doesn't mean that the 50 people behind him do!

For example, If you were in a store and stood in front of an item 10 other people needed to get to, you would be thought of as an inconsiderate asshole. When you hold up ten people on the street, it is no different, it's still being an asshole. Don't write it off as just "road rage." Manners are important.

Everything annoys me to a certain percentage. Getting up this morning to goto work after getting shit faced the night before doesn't feel good.
