Crap that drives you crazy while on the road.
I’ll go first. I’m on the road (sales) a lot. Anyway in the past 3 weeks I’ve had a few cars decide to try to pass me while there was only literally a car length between me and the other car.
Once I was in the left lane, trying to pass to get over to the right lane. The other few times I was in the right lane. I’m not a slow driver, but I’m not a maniac either- I usually keep it at about 8 mph over the posted limit.
I mean are you in that much of a rush where you have to wedge yourself in between 2 cars?
Ok I’m done, off the soapbox and moving on.

People on their phone at red lights. Especially the first car in line.

People who don't know how to merge.

Most days I have to merge behind idiots who don't reach even 50 MPH while traffic is moving 70+.

People stopping at yield signs when there's no oncoming traffic.

The only thing that makes me melt inside is when this road sign is not being followed.

Rolling roadblocks that last more than 5 minutes.

people who stop in the left lane to make a left turn, when there is a turn lane next to them for that exact purpose.

It may only be a Columbia thing, as I've never seen idiots do that shite in any other city I've lived in.

People who blow through stop signs in my town. It happens all the time (and I don't mean a roll-through). The cops stopped writing traffic tickets here and now it's out of control.

People who exit a roundabout and then stop to turn LEFT across traffic into a gas station, when they could have gone straight thru the roundabout and easily turned RIGHT into the same store

I’ve thought about speeding up to reduce the space but I don’t want to be that guy.

Pulling out in front me and slamming on brakes with a turn signal a quarter mile later.

Didn’t know this was still a thing nowadays with work from home and Zoom and MS Teams meetings.

In Jersey it wouldn't matter, they would still stuff their salty shitbox into that space.

Try having someone from the right lane narrowly escaping traffic on a 6 lane road to make a left turn.

re: Crap that drives you crazy while on the road.
I'm trying to move over one lane. Turn on my signal. The guy behind me swings over and floors it so I can't get over. Then he passes me and...moves into the far right lane.

Why not just let me get over and you have plenty of room in front of you?
