Nobody ever does the speed limit unless I'm behind them.

Oh and another one! Driving with brights (high beams on) even in daytime. Again this is usually females or the elderly, they have absolutely no clue.

You don't do what some do around here do you? Run 10 under the limit just to see how many cars will pile up behind you.

They got their high powered stereos on and can't hear you, plus they don't use their mirrors.

I usually drive the limit or just a tad over in a patrol car.

I did have three whole lanes of traffic held up the other day because nobody wanted to pass me.

People who slow down at intersections because they think the light 'MAY' change to Amber (then Red).
Why slow down and Not Make the light and have to brake hard because you slowed down....just keep your speed and move along. If it goes Amber...then slow and stop.
Just trying to explain it makes me mad......

My biggest complaint is the people who realize they are going slow when you try to pass them, so they speed up. Then a few hundred yards later they slow back down. I usually drive with my cruise control set just a tad over the limit, and having to get off and back on constantly behind on of these type drivers really annoys me.

The left lane drivers also are aggravating. My wife actually got stopped a few months ago for being in the left lane and not passing. But I wish the LEO's would enforce this more.

People who think a stop sign is a text stop sign. I've literally gone around people in an intersection before.

People who linger in the passing lane.

People who speed up when you start to pass them in said passing lane.

People who don't signal.

People who call the passing lane a "fast Lane"(Making people think that if they are going "Fast" they can linger there.)

People who cut you off while talking on a cell phone.

People who text and drive. (Seriously, you might be good at it, but it's still dangerous as f***. And they know it)

People who are driving 70 in the right lane they move to start to pass somebody in the left lane, slow down to 60. Take forever to pass. Move over to the right lane, go 70 again.

People who are scared to pass a semi. (Seriously, just go. Do not sit there in his blind spot!!!)

People who can't seem to merge onto a highway at HIGHWAY SPEED!

People who don't pay attention on the highway and don't move over for the people coming off an on ramp.

People who can't handle missing a turn. And damn near cause an accident so their life won't be interrupted for the 5 minutes it takes to get back on course.

People who stop in the middle of a HIGHWAY!!!

People who pull out in front of you, then turn 200ft ahead.

People who are driving trucks with trailers that pull out in front of you and just say to themselves, "they'll stop"

People who park in handicap spaces and think they are entitled to them because of (insert stupid reason here)

People who just can't seem to park between the lines at all.

People who clearly shouldn't have received a license.

People who have been driving a while, and should have their license taken away.

Anybody who drives drunk.

Lazy slow Sunday drivers who don't use the mirrors or signals drive 10 under the limit text or talk on the cell in a car full of kids with a bunch of stickers on there back windows explaining how they have a family. any prius on any road ever. People with there sound system up so loud there whole car shakes and sounds like washing machine falling down a flight of stairs. Rubber neckers, lane hogs, people who cross the road where there not alowed to and cause every one to slam on there brakes then look at you like your the jerks. People who don't let others merge on the freeway causing traffic to come to a halt making rubber neckers have to slow and look at it causing more traffic. Truck drivers to stupid to hook up there pig tails so there trailer lights work then signal to come over with no working trailer lights causing accidents. Double parking, triple parking, quad parking motorcycles lane splitting in really heavy traffic. People not going the speed limit or 10 over.

NAILED it!!!!!!! It's called "distracted driving" here, and here are the consequences:

- a fine of $400, plus a victim surcharge and court fee, for a total of $490 if settled out of court
- fine of up to $1,000 if you receive a summons or fight your ticket
- three demerit points applied to your driver’s record

I have a lot. However, I'll share my top three.

1.) People turning slow. No need to take every turn at .5 mph when on a busy street. Don'y make a career out of it.

2.) The inability to understand the merge concept. Not sure how it is for you guys, but here in southwest Ohio there seems to be an unwritten rule that when it comes time to merge, you forget how to drive completely and bottleneck the entire interstate.

3.) People driving in the far left lane. This is the fast lane on the interstate or the passing lane on smaller roads. Do not drive in this lane if you aren't overtaking or aren't keeping up with the flow of traffic. This applies to semi trucks on the interstate mostly. If there are 4 lanes in one direction, unless there are lanes shut down, there is never a reason for them to be in the far left lane. It does nothing but slows traffic. Should be forbidden
