I live in Pa where everyday you have some stupid driver you wish you could just get ahold of and beat the crap out of. Everyday I get my blood pressure up over idiots. I get tailgated so much I might as well let them push me, it will save gas!! I get tailgated here whether I am going 5 MPH over or 20 Over. Last winter I had an idiot pass me while a blizzard was going on. He lost control while trying to get back in the lane and hit a pole. I am from West Virginia and when I moved to pa I was in shock about how some people drive up here. I cant count how many times I lost my temper and flipped people off, or when I am being tailgated I pull over, let them pass, and get right up on thier *ss. Road rage is a bad thing but when you live in a state like PA you can't help it. I guess its like this everywhere.

A While back I came up with the idea of paintballing cars that act like idiots. If everyone did this, you would just avoid the cars covered in paint...

Thats the best idea I've heard in a while!! In pa 9 out of 10 cars would end up being paintballed!! It would be great though!!

I wish I could have a day like that. Usually after I have been tailgate by 2 different cars and cut off a few times that it for me, the gloves are off at that point. Here in this lovely freaking state it takes me 25 minutes to reach this point. Back in WV I had alot of those good days however, those where the good ol days!!

George Carlin had a routine like that, where everyone should be able to tag you with a "Stupid" flag. You get enough flags, you get a ticket just due to popular vote

Sorry for being mean there but I do know how it feel to have someone driving either unsafe or stupid out here on these highways. I HATE IT with all my heart when I am driving on a 4 lane divided hwy. and I of coarse am in the truck, and I want to pass a driver in the granny lane (Right lane). I get in the hammer lane and there is a car on the left doing the same speed as the car is doing on the right which I get mad because they aren't making it easy on me to pass. Then there is traffic behind me and they are thinking that I am the cause of all of this traffic when it isn't but they don't know because they can't see in front of me. So therefore I either flip the LOUD Jacobs Brake and release the accelorator to activate that and scare them, put my brights on or tailgate to get them out of the way. I just don't understand ppl sometimes that why on the hwy they want to ride the left lane when its original purpose is for passing, not cruising. There are signs that specifiacally say " Slower Traffic Keep Right"

Nothing against you personally ssesc93, and I'll preface this by saying I understand that trucks and the trucking industry are a big part of this economy, but semi-trucks almost always **** me off on the road. I don't drive slow and I don't cruise. I pass, usually in the 75-85 range. My #1 peeve is when a truck doing 56 pulls out to pass a truck doing 55 right in front of me doing 80.

I can tell you why they do that. The reason being is in Ohio trucks can only do 55mph. Some can get away with 60. They want to pass the truck in front of them because they are getting closer without downshifting. We look at the left mirror to check to see if anyone is coming and if we see a break, we take it. Its hard trying to change lanes in a truck and theres 5 cars on the side of the truck and we can have are turn signal on forever and not one car will be nice. Sometimes they will give us a break and thats rare. I figure that cars think trucks are slow. Not all of them. If you remember the name of the company I can tell you the reason for that.
