Those that are in way too much of a hurry and impatient. What's the hurry? I've had people use the left turn lane to pass me in a school zone while kids are crossing the street. I see the next light turn red and I start to coast. Jerks get all impatient bobbing and weaving trying to find a way to get around me, tailgating, flipping me off, cutting others off, whipping in and out of lanes (even though I'm still going 5+ over the limit) and then I pull right up beside them as I coast to a stop at the next stoplight. Then it happens at the next stoplight and the next. Friggin idiots. A couple of weeks ago, a cop came screaming up behind me and turned on his lights. I pulled over to the curb lane and the cop shot past me and pulled over the jerk that had been tailgating me as I just described. Bwahahahaha!

There are many.....texting while driving aside, I detest drivers that won't pull over to the shoulder when I "flash to pass" on a two lane country road.

I also have no patience anymore, (and I think it's gotten worse with the influx of "out-of-State transplants,) is driver's who fail to pull to the shoulder and STOP when there are emergency vehicles with their lights on, or funerals with police escorts, either from behind or ahead. This is courtesy and respect, and something we do in Texas.

Vehicles pass you on a 4 lane highway and cut in with just a car length between you and of course, no signal. There’s no rush to get in so why cut me off??

Where to start.. in order


1. Texting and driving or social media while driving - I was almost killed one night bc an idiot was on facebook and wouldn't go/get out of the way.. 18 wheeler rolling up fast behind me with her in front. On bridge and nowhere to go. I 100% debated slamming into her and pushing her down the road to try to save myself. All I can say is thank god the truck driver was paying attention. Finally got to go around and could, without a doubt, tell she was scrolling facebook.
2. Cutting me off when there really isn't enough room causing me to brake harder than I should just to help your stupid self
3. Left lane riders - I don't care if you are going 10 over already if I roll up behind you faster MOVE
4. Haven't experienced it but lane splitters.. I will open my door in stand still traffic just saying

Slow drivers in the left lane who refuse to get over
Clowns on the interstate that pull up behind you and you pull over to let them pass then they just sit in your blind spot for 2-3 miles
People who get gas and instead of pulling away from the pump to keep the line moving they go in and do their shopping. Just a couple weeks ago I watched a car pull up at the pump at a Pilot go in order their food from Subway and then sit inside and eat, bunch of inconsiderate people.

Slow drivers in the left lane, not merging over for people/semis to get onto the interstate, no turn signals, improper strapping of loads, people who don’t turn their brights off, people who speed in a school zone, people who block pumps so that nobody can get into the other pump without going past them and backing in, people who use the diesel pump to get gas when there’s gas pumps open that don’t have diesel, people who don’t pull over for emergency vehicles/funerals, and pretty much anyone else on the road because people have absolutely 0 common sense or respect for other drivers on the road.

People who don’t accelerate swiftly while merging from the on ramps with traffic . I especially despise the assholes that stop at the end of the ramps because they’re incapable of merging with traffic.

Another... idiots who are behind me on the on-ramp who cross the white lines on the ramp so they can merge before I do. I'm accelerating hard, up to a good speed to merge into busy traffic, and the jerk that was behind me on the ramp is now cutting across the white lines or even the rumble strips and immediately into the far left lane so I now have to contend with him along with the other vehicles that were already on the highway. Jackass.

People who lay on the horn behind you? Just a tap will do please.
Watch the movie "Unhinged" and you'll understand... That actually altered my driving habits a little.

I don't like the right turn on red w/o stopping. I understand it's a cali thing, but we're not cali.

I'd have to say people that drive below the speed limit or don't let you pass.

Another one is when they are going to a turn lane, and don't commit to the lane and ride on the line so you can't get past them because they are straddling both lanes.

To go with this, there's also the special people who don't leave any space, or even better, speed up to eliminate the gap you were going to merge into, so you have to slam on the brakes because you have nowhere to go.
