It's pretty much all been said by others here, but my top annoying things about other drivers are : Driving too slow, Driving while on the phone, Not using their turn signal, Drivers that just pull out in front of you and almost cause an accident ,and many many more!

People who throw trash off their windows. I saw this driver in front of me throw a CHICKEN BONE out of the window... almost hit the biker.
People who find it necessary to keep revving their engines in slow-moving traffic.
People who don't let pedestrians pass.
People who disregard common-sense driving laws.


You forgot "people who don't use their turn signals when switching lanes".

I hate guys who tailgate me when I'm driving. Guys who don't signal before making a turn or aggressive drivers who cut you off and use shoulders to do so. YOU DO NEED TO SIGNAL IF YOU ARE REVERSING AS WELL

driving under the speed limit, not using blinkers, tired, drunk, and not paying attention.

I see a lot of drivers doing stupid things, then acting like they've done nothing wrong.
For example, you just cut us off, and nearly got hit. But you're angry at us?

I also hate when in cities if traffic is lined up, they won't leave space between them and the car in front of them. So that other drivers can enter or leave an adjacent street. It only worsens traffic, further pissing everyone off.

EXAMPLE:

Ever notice how everyone going slower or faster than you is a douchebag?

My car can't signal, I've fixed it twice, the flasher unit burns up, then the turn signal switch burns up. Wiring problem. it's been nice to drive in warm weather, I can give hand signals, except the AC also doesn't work so it's like warm=deadly hot. Can't ship babies or animals in my car, what do you know, it never comes up.

Anyway, as someone who can't signal without hand signals, I'm lucky to live in a spread out town that is beginning to accept cyclists.

So I give the cyclist signal if I'm being tailgated or totally boxed out, otherwise I let human nature take its course in lane changes. Somehow, I haven't missed a lane change yet. I have been next to an old man who I can neither confirm nor deny set his signals, but lane changed right into me. I was there the whole time, he claimed I zipped in, I drive a 96 Buick. You literally cannot zip in a 96 Buick. Corrected the man, did not call the cops, bygones be bygones, I have damage to my passenger door, he calmed down away from his inevitable cardiac arrest. Car is still mowing down miles,

On the other hand, I recognize that I am a theoretical hazard to other drivers, so I pay a lot of attention to the drivers around me and let speedy drivers pass before I change lanes, give slow drivers car lengths in front of me (while other cars zip around me until it's fair for me to make my move), and generally obey my RPM/Engine temp/Brake capabilities. I've really gotten to know my car, and three years ago my parents said I was supposed to scrap it.

I kind of love hearing a car that sounds like the engine or exhaust is giving out. I kind of hate when that car drives recklessly. I kind of especially hate when the owner of that car has spent money to make that car sound like the exhaust is giving out and drives recklessly.

I dunno, I just think it's helped me as a motorist to keep a dying car alive, rather than to assume my car rules.

BUT what I'd really like to add, considering that I'm an obligatorily careless driver:


A majority of divers aren't paying attention to the fact that I have one taillight out and therefore can't signal effectively. When I get two tailgaters a month who read my hand signalling, I consider it a damn phenomenon. When anyone in front of me has a brake light out, I'm like "my cousin."

Awareness. When you're driving, don't let anything make you less aware of the fact that you're driving. And if you screw up, hope you hit me so you don't have to use some BS excuse like "you zipped up on me" that we both know is bogus.

Their getting too close to me and almost drifting into my lane. That's actually what caused me to get into my first accident a few weeks, closer to a month ago. This idiot ran a stop sign, basically drifted into my lane and almost hit me on the driver's side.

To avoid being hit by him, I had to veer to the right, and as a panic reaction, I ended up stomping my foot on the pedal I was using, the accelerator, went up on a curb, and hit a light pole.

Drivers with no acknowledgement for proper distance between cars, at least horizontally, as in, NO RESPECT FOR LANE BOUNDARIES, basically give me small panic attacks. They infuriate me. Most people who end up making such mistakes are on their phones texting, and I'm pretty much screaming in the confines of my car "GET OFF YOUR DAMN PHONE" while they do so.

The good thing is that despite the fact that my car hit a pole, I was okay physically. The bad thing is that the mofo who ran me off sped away, and i didn't get his plates or his info, just a description of his car. I was in full on panic attack mode when I hit that pole, three women got out of their cars and helped calm me down, but I am still angry that i let the IDIOT in that black SUV get away from me.

People doing their make up in the car. One time this lady did that and it nearly crashed onto my bike. This is why you wear helmets kids

And also those people that glance on you rudely when they're faster than you.

My mom actually totaled her car when she was sixteen because she did her makeup in there. Crashed straight into a telephone pole. She said it was one of the scariest moments of her life, but the woman sometimes STILL DOES HER DARN MAKEUP IN HER CAR.

people who drive way below actual speed limit,
People who don't use turn signals
and the worst of them all, people who use their phone while driving
Posted 6/20/15
Turn. Friggin. Signal.
I can cope with slow jerks
or fast jerks
or people who have no idea where they're supposed to go
but if they used their turn signals, I can know that they have an INTENTION.
