The best thing about that article is the Link to the video about traffic waves. (new window)
 
2011-02-21 02:02:26 AM
So is there anything you can do about these things? Yes, actually. A single driver can "break" these jams by leaving a significant amount of open space in front of him in heavy traffic, resisting the temptation to accelerate and close the gap even when cars cut in ahead. This technique not only stops the driver from having to brake when he reaches the back end of a wave, it actually destroys the wave for anyone behind him.

This is basically how I drive. And yes, sometimes the car behind me finds an opportunity to pass me (either on the left or right) and get in front of me and continue to stop and go like they were before...but this time they're like 50 yards closer to their destination.

I do #2 pretty often, I mean the "wave break" thing. Big trucks tend to break waves as well because of the nature of their vehicles and their experience (i.e. lack of impulsiveness).

People that stand on the left side of subway's escalators.

Idiots that spend 10 minutes deciding on what to order at the counter of McDonald's while shiat tons of people are queuing. You have all the time in the world to think while waiting, now, at the counter, you decide to ask your kids, your sisters, and your parents one what do they want?

Noon Blue Apples: 10) People who squat and read in the aisles of bookstores


I would never have thought to list them, but they are an annoyance. Why do they choose such an uncomfortable way to read? And why do it in the aisle cross-wise so that no one can get around them? I don't want want to have to scrape by your ass like it's the Titanic and I'm an iceberg.

People who walk/run up or down escalators, especially when there is a stairway with noone using it between the up and down escalators, and expect everyone to get out of their way!

I saw something unusual at the self-check at the supermarket yesterday. A woman piled her purchases beside her cloth grocery bags before putting them in. I guess those packages of pasta were like tetris blocks to her.

Yeah, but the stairs are always blocked by groups of 5 old women walking in a V formation.

People with 4 kids in a grocery store pushing a kiddie cart with no passengers.
 
2011-02-21 06:14:43 AM
I admit I have done that but usually it is because I am so used to not seeing anyone getting on or off the elevator (it isn't a busy building) that by the time I get on I realize that there were people getting off. Yeah brain = autopilot

I just know what doors to enter that will drop me right at the exit. Those cairrages can be pretty crowded, though so one should expect some pushing.

I just say "excuse me", politely and without rancor, but then stand there and stare at them until they move their fat ass.

My pet hate is people who drive in the overtaking lanes of the motorway. Are you overtaking someone? No? Then get in the farking driving lane you colossal arsehole! WhatCar estimated that people who drive in the central lane of a 3-lane motorway could free up 700 miles of road each year by driving in the correct lane. These people should be fined and get 3 points. It's a potentially huge earner for the police and has the benefit of improving driving conditions for all. It's win/win, except for the muppets who are unable to drive and nobody gives a shiat about them.

Maybe you should get taxed for every mile you drive. You get taxed more if the roadway allows you to go faster.
