So a Honda driver thought he could outrun your car?

Speaking of that kind of stuff, it sucks when I'm in the slow Jetta & I need to get around, but I know I'd get beat
However, when I'm in the Miata & people think it's just another Miata & I can't get around em. Oops, wrong!

I agree. And when you finally get past them they give you a finger or a nasty look.

Sorry I missed it.
I've actually had an 18 wheeler cut over in front of me with my BMW 330 so late that I actually had the ABS come on! That is with my Stoptech 355mm BBK, in the total dry weather! I never hit ABS with that car even on Rcomps on the track. I was beyond furious. If I hadn't had my BMW, I would have rear ended him. What a DB.
Oh, yeah, maybe 1 or 2 mph faster at the most. Then THEY get annoyed when you're on their ass till they move over again.

That's when I just nail it and move back into the left lane, in front of them, to pass the slower traffic.
A quick downshift and I blow bye them. I don't even give them a chance to pace me. Not worth the aggravation.

Idiot 2: Approaches intersection wanting to make a left turn but does not yield to those making a right. This situation is even worse when the intersection is big and the opposite end of the intersection has two lanes allowing for right turns.

If I had a beater car I would just continue making my right while those making a left from the opposite direction...
That's because y'all are too dumb for roundabouts, 4 way stops are fucking stupid.

Do we have: braking on the interstate when no one in front of you is braking?

I believe this one of the biggest causes of traffic. Obviously there are other legitimate reasons to brake, but so many people in traffic jams are braking when the person in front is not. Its ludicrous. I want a tail light that's on when no brakes are applied stating "BRAKING UNNECESSARY," then when I hit the brake, then "UN" goes dark. If you see unnecessary, you shouldn't have to brake.

BILLION times this .... an absolute epidemic, so many people brake for absolutely ZERO fuckign reason.

That's one of the situations where lane splitting on a motorcycle comes in really handy. There were a couple of morons who were doing that on Highway 101 in Mendocino County, in a section where there's a passing lane for about two miles, then two lane highway for more than ten miles following.

They were doing about five miles an hour under the speed limit and there was a long line of cars behind them. I was on my Yamaha R1, so I split the lanes, moved in front of the road hog in the left lane, and motioned him into the right lane.

He complied... and many of the drivers who had been stuck behind him honked their horns and gave me a thumbs up as they passed.

Especially when they see a white car coming up behind them at a decent speed. Seems everyone thinks you're a cop and can't tell headlights or the type of car from their mirrors.

I agree but the offense is not limited to non BMW drivers. Today I was driving on a 4 lane road (2 each direction) with a speed limit of 50 mph. A BMW in front of me, in the left lane, kept pace with the car in the right lane for about three miles before he turned off.

Here's another one.

Asshole tail gaiting you on the highway in the left lane, riding the line so he makes sure you see him in your side mirror BUT everyone is going 80+ and it's packed with cars. No where to go dude!

Sure I could change lanes but everyone is driving the same speed.

Why does he insist on riding my ass and it's packed? Hate that!

So what do I do??? Drive a little slower... PLUS the bastard is driving a Camry!!

HID bulbs in non-projector housings!!! Blinding coming at you or behind you (I point my rear view mirrors back at them). ASSHOLES buy a car that comes with proper HID/LED headlights. Do not put HID bulbs in your fog light housings and use your fog lights when it isn't foggy! LED light bars! FUUUUUUG YOU!!!

Z. All of the aforementioned stuff.

I know this is an old thread but I feel compelled to add to the list:

Pulling up to an intersection where there is room for a person turning left (across both lanes of traffic) and one turning right (crossing only one lane of traffic). An SUV pulls up to turn left and I am trying to turn right and the SUV goes so far forward that I cannot see if anyone is coming from my left because of this humongous inconsiderate person. So I have to wait until he decides that it is safe to pull out across both lanes of traffic. No reason for him to pull that far forward.

Yes, this happens to me ALL the time trying to leave my work parking lot. So frustrating

Along with the ones posts( didn’t read the whole thread). A couple years ago we were in Cabo and we took a bus trip to Lapaz to snorkel with the whale sharks.
I was amazed on how disciplined the natives were. In the about the four hour ride ride there and back everyone moved out of the left lane when traffic came up on them, they all know how to navigate a roundabout smoothly and I noticed there are many, many four way stops without lights. Not one time did i see a driver jump out of turn or sit there with their thumb up their ass not knowing what to do. USA drivers screw all these things up all the friggin time. Sad.

I have the perfect solution to this that i will enact when you guys make me President.
