Another thing: Driver who pass, get in front of you, and then SLOW DOWN!

I don't get how it could be a difficult task for a driver to pass, get back in the left lane, and maintain a steady speed. Cruise control exists for a reason!

I hate being tailgated so much that my husband suggested I get the license plate holder that states:

"If you're going to ride my a$$, you can at least pull my hair."

I hate when people tailgate, I really do.

Old thread but remembered it following my morning commute.

20-something gal in a small car tailgated the crap out of me....I had 2 more cars in front of me and nowhere to go. She was under 10 feet from my back bumper.

We were going about 70 in a 55mph zone and were actually in the slow lane with a split coming up in 2 miles.

Ugh. What a poop head.

1) Failure to signal.
2) Failure to stay right on the interstate.
3) Stopping short of a light and then slowly creeping forward.
4) People stopped at a stop sign on a road you are turning onto and moving forward while you are making the turn.
5) People who can't maintain a consistent speed on the interstate. I hate coming up on someone who speeds up, passes you, slows down you pass them, speed up again and pass you, wash rinse and repeat.
6) People that don't stay right on two lane roads, particularly when cresting hills.
7) Road rage maniacs. People who get behind the wheel with other personal problems and vent the rage at other drivers.
8) People that drive slow in no passing zones and then speed up in the passing zone. It's almost as if they are messing with people.

Drivers who refuse to yield and use a turnout on a mountain road.

Drivers who flick cigarettes out of their car.

Drivers that can’t merge, people around here love to merge going well below freeway/highway speeds.

What irritates me the most is when I am on a multi-lane highway and a driver stays in the left hand lane. MOVE OVER....it's a passing lane!!!

1. High beams.
2. Failing to clear all the snow off the car.
3. Lane experts.
4. Failure to yield when required.
5. Yielding when the other vehicle is required to yield.

The brillant drivers who, on an interstate, pass you... only to then swerve in front of you to get off at the next exit.

Morons who're too busy txting/checking msgs-emails on their "smart" phones to notice that the light has turned green & they need to GO because they're at the head of the line & holding up everyone in back. This is especially annoying at protected left-turn arrows where the time to proceed through the intersection is so precious & limited. Here in LA if you miss a left-turn signal you could literally spend another 5 minutes just waiting for your turn again.

It's most likely the same people who, in stop and go traffic, keep 20 or more car lengths between them and the car just ahead.

The left lane hog thing has been beat to death, so what else you got?
So someone who uses brains to make daily decisions irritates you? I guess that explains the "NoBama 2012" tag.
