I hate that my wife doesn't use her turn signals all the time. Scares the shiat out of me.

She also some times stops at green lights....says she's afraid of people speeding through the red light.

Driving under the Speed Limit.

Limit:
1.
A point or level beyond which something does not or may not extend or pass.

2.
A restriction on the size or amount of something permissible or possible.

Is it bad that I watched this while driving?  I had my emergency flashers on the entire time so that makes it okay. right?  I mean, you can do whatever you want if you have your emergency flashers on.

I tend to always sit in the left lane, even when there's nothing in the right hand lanes.

But then I do live in the UK....

Slowing down while merging?  I always do that as it seems much safer

/of course that's because I try to be doing 75 or so when I get to the end of the onramp to merge onto a 65 highway
//much easier to slow down a bit than accelerate when driving my truck
 
2021-01-17 8:27:42 PM  
I expected that to suck, but it was actually very good.
 
2021-01-17 8:42:28 PM  
I've noticed that a lot of driving in the left (for 2) or center lane (for 3) on surface streets is a result of no or too short right turn lanes and people who pull out and don't accelerate. On highways, it's similar, but add in the people who don't use the merge lane properly to get up to hwy speed. (US / FL)
 
2021-01-17 8:47:27 PM  
Using a turn signal is so much of a habit for me that I'll even use it when I'm in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night when I haven't seen another car for a long time. Like putting on my seatbelt, it just feels uncomfortable to not to.
 
2021-01-17 8:58:02 PM  
Missing from the list:

I'm in the middle lane of three, and the only car for a mile and someone makes a right turn onto the three lane INTO MY LANE and makes me slow way the hell down.

and

In the right lane on a divided 4 lane highway, with the cruise control on maybe 4-5 over the speed limit, and some asshole behind me passes, and once they are in front, SLOWS DOWN, forcing me to turn off the cruise control, and discover that they are going a good 8-10 miles slower than I was.  So I pass, put the cruise back on 5 over, and they speed up, pass, get in front of me, and slow down again.

Some idiot did that like 5 times on a road trip once, and finally I had enough, and got a couple car lengths back, and hit the driver's mirror with a 5 million candlepower floodlight.  They finally got the hint and exited.

I didn't see him again.  I hope he got retina damage and couldn't drive any more.

Due to an aneurysm suffered in '09, I don't have left peripheral vision, so I try to stay in the left lane as often as possible, to avoid having to be aware of what's to my left...
 
2021-01-17 9:09:12 PM  
My wife will swing wide to the right, when turning left, crossing over the lane divider, potentially interfering with traffic in the neighboring lane, when there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to do that.

Americans simply aren't programmed for the basic generosity and fairness involved in a properly executed zipper merge. Too socialist.

Around here, it's captain douche-bag in the rice-boy car or ghetto-mobile, who wants to beat the traffic in the proper lane to merge onto the on-ramp of the highway. He has to try to force his way into the correct lane, because he can't seem to want to get at the back of the line and wait his turn. Waiting for someone with a beater car and a dash-cam to smear the paint off the side of his car when he tries his no-signal merge.

This seems like it would be terribly tiring on your calves.  Having to sit holding both your feet up at the same time just seems implausible.  I could see somebody using their left foot to brake, but not driving with it on there.

Driving hazardously with your buddy, in the rain, to make a YouTube video on how not to drive is a-okay, tough.

And don't give me any bullshiat about they had it planned. Not with all the other cars on the road.

And I got one: Pedestrians in the cross walk always have right of way when their light is green. No you can't f*cking make your turn now I'm here.

2021-01-17 9:17:58 PM  
Driving side by side at the same speed on the highway. UGH I see this all the farking time on my commute. Worse are the people who perfectly position themselves in your blind-spot and then drive the same speed.

Left lane camping. I see this all the time too. Even worse are the people who jump into the left lanes after getting on the highway, but aren't up to highway speed yet.

Pulling out in front of somebody and not speeding up. I don't see it as often, but yeah, mega annoying. Why follow an aggressive driving move with terribly passive driving?

I have the daydreaming problem to the point I just don't drive. Even if I somehow scraped by on the test and got a license, I'd end up killing myself or someone else.

/I'm still probably going to die someday walking through a parking lot.
 
2021-01-17 9:19:33 PM  
Yes with the people who speed up when you're passing on the interstate. Then they'll slow down again until you try to pass a second time. If everyone were forced to use cruise control they'd get it and stop that shiat. Some truly don't realize they're doing it.

Congrats. You can use a dictionary.

Also, just realize the person behind you hates YOU.

Sedan? Hates you.
SUV? Hates you.
Pickup? Hates you.
School bus? Hates you.
Military convoy? Hates you.
Hearse? Even the dude in the box hates you.
 
2021-01-17 9:22:28 PM  
Another thing: when you have the right of way, take it. Do not be excessively polite. Don't wave other cars through when you're going straight and they're waiting to turn left. Don't slow down to let pedestrians into the street when there's no crosswalk. Don't yield when the other guy has the yield sign, or stop at an intersection where the other guy has a stop sign and you don't. It's an application of the general rule of "be predictable." Unpredictability can be dangerous.

It's safer to be going faster than whatever is coming up behind you.

Important lesson they teach you when you take a motorcycle safety class. Our instructor flat out said that you're better off passing people than having them pass you.

If you can't safely drive according to the rules of the road, which include staying right except to pass, you need to either modify your vehicle to accommodate your physical issue, or leave the driving to others.
 
2021-01-17 9:28:39 PM  
Another thing I hate is when there's a semi-truck and a vehicle following it closely behind in the right lane, I'm in the middle lane watching this tandem for half a mile, and just at the point where I'm going to overtake the two vehicles, the guy trailing the semi decides that now they want to pass the truck, when they couldn't do this for the previous minute I was coming up to them. And they always pass so farking slowly too.

/and the left lane is full of jackasses driving 100+ mph
//seriously, the pre-6AM commute is the psycho commute

I'm gonna say that's only true for MOST Americans. Zipper merging is an essential lifesaving skill on the freeways of Los Angeles.

And lane splitting is legal.
