It also does annoy me when people park blocking my driveway. Landscapers do that every week in the summer. Annoying with all of their mowers and stuff all over the street.
no offense but why do people walk on the road when there is a sidewalk available? they walk in the middle of the road and expect you to drive carefully around them as you go by. if you are walking in the street and not using the sidewalk, you deserve to get hit.

Perhaps you missed the no sidewalk peeve?

There are no sidewalks in my area. Where there are, I use them. They just put one in on Park Ave south of Broadway but it's the exception around here.

I do wonder about the people who walk after dark dressed in all black. If I am out running after dusk I am wearing a vest and a light and reflective strips. Better safe than sorry. But to say someone deserves to be hit is just ignorant. A pedestrian has no chance against a car. It is up to the driver to use the proper caution.

That is an awesome peeve. If you're going to walk in the street at night, don't wear all black.

Just shy of four years ago, my friend walked along the side of the road (no sidewalk) on a bright, sunny day. She was struck and killed by a distracted driver.

A few weeks ago, her daughter walked home from school. A driver flew by, exceeding the speed limit while hugging the side of the road. The mirror clipped her arm with enough force that it pushed the mirror closed.

Both daytime, both caused by drivers who weren't paying attention to the roadway.

I also can't stand when a car stops to chat with a car going in the other direction. So traffic flow from both directions are stopped. I can't stand that crap!!! And then a lot of them don't want to move if you beep your horn.

Also, people who don't pick up their kids outdoor toys and let them stay outside all day+night.

People who let their dogs loose to roam the streets also.
