  • The fast lane slug-hog.

  • Too many to list but some others that come to mind are: the Turn Blocker – people who pull past a stop sign and angle their car taking up the opposite lane making it impossible to get by. The Gap Closers: people who speed up to the bumper of the car ahead preventing you from entering the slow lane of a highway even if traffic is moving at a crawl. And, the Needle Threader – people who cut directly from the fast lane into an exit directly ahead of you even when there are no other cars behind you.

    My next car would be a Humvee if it weren't for the whole gasoline vs. second mortgage dealio.

  • Yep, mine are varied as well but here are some of my favs:  The rolling eardrum blaster — they're already deaf from the 10000 watt sub woofers in their rides — but they want to take your ears out as well.  The life flasher — these like to pull out in traffic when you are so dangerously close to them — that your entire life flashes before your eyes in milliseconds because you think you're about to die. The crazy bat out of hell — these weave in and out of lanes, cut you off, tailgate,etc — all in a rush to get to the light at the same time as you.

  • Texting/cell phone users make my blood boil! I have a collection of AT&T's don't text and drive stickers at home 🙂

  • Agree on all above comments. Where I live, people stop in the opposite lane to let you turn in front of them and while it's very polite it's not very safe.

  • +Peg Fitzpatrick I live in Montreal where a Cross Walk is so unrecognized that drivers think it's just another construction site and look for workers to run over. 
    Maybe just getting old but do people take courses anymore?

  • Can't even talk about driving habits here, sadly because there are none 🙁

  • +Ray Hiltz They take classes here. Our state law is that cars have to stop for pedestrians, they are supposed to cross at crosswalks but don't always. That's fun too.
