when there is 1/2 inch or less of snow on the roads, and people drive like there is 2 feet. that make me crazy. or even worse, when its just rain, and people drive like that.

They have purpose. You also have to keep in mind that anything manmade will break.
Tailgaters
They have no other purpose in this world than to pi$$ people off. Grind material.
people
Gotta be more specific than that. People perturb me as well, but only certain members of the genus homo sapien have that distinct honor.
when there is 1/2 inch or less of snow on the roads, and people drive like there is 2 feet. that make me crazy. or even worse, when its just rain, and people drive like that.
One of mankinds many folicies. It'* a "monkey-see, monkey-do" sorta thing. One person sees someone drive a certain way, they think they should do the same. Vehicle automation would solve this problem to an extent.

For some reason, I'm feeling philosophical, not my jovial psychologic self, today.

While true, it still grinds my gears, especially after multiple codes one after another after another
