I hate people that pass you as soon as they can on a 2 lane ( one lane each direction) and then slow down to a slower speed that you were doing before they passed you.

Or even on a 4 lane ( 2 lanes each direction), come up fast behind you, pass you, then pull in front of you and slow down, so you have to pass them.

OR people that are driving just below the speed limit, but when a passing lane comes up, they speed up big time, then slow right down as soon as the passing lane ends, not letting anyone pass them.


Hmmm come to think of it, any other driver on the road, lmfao.


Edit: I am one who talks on the phone while driving, but when you drive for sometimes 7 hours in a day, you have to do something to keep from falling asleep. Besides who needs 2 hands on the wheel. If I have both hands on the wheel, well, I get into one of those moods and I end up with a ticket for speeding, lol.

I think I'm the first to say it. People who believe they are above the law and give the excuse "It'* only 5(or whatever suits the driver) MPH over". It'* still illegal. End of story.

I'm not above the law but I have asked the hwy patrol how fast I can go without getting a ticket and was told I could go at the most 73 mph. I usually go about 71 mph and have not ever gotten stopped. When I am in town I will go by the posted signs as they have zero tolerance.

OMG, SAME HERE!!!! That is my #1 peeve. It dosen't even have to be a 4 lane road, just a 2 lane. It'* against the law to hold traffic up behind you while in the fast lane while not passing anyone. I'll lay on the horn once I can get around them.
4 lanes total

Sweetheart, that cop doesn't write the law, he/she just enforces it. Because they let it slide does not make it less illegal. Just my P.O.V.

I can't say tailgating, speeding, and passing on the right because I do all of those...I HATE HATE HATE it when people don't use turn signals. Signaling WHILE making the turn is even worse than not signaling at all.

In idaho.

We are allowed to drive as slow as we want in whatever lane we feel necessary.

And I hate people that dont do the speed limit, thats pretty much everybody in my town, Theres a lot of traffic on the main road and all but on the other roads its not busy so at least go the speed limit lol.
