If there is a skinny fake'n'bake streaky-haired soccer-mom looking woman driving a huge SUV like a Cadillac Escalade or similar-type vehicle - I turn around and go the other way! Watch out! Chances are she's talking on her cell phone in one hand and balancing her overpriced coffee drink in the other - and NOT watching how she's driving. Yikes! I've nearly been run over several times by this type of driver.

(...and P.S. - I'm not saying women are bad driver's. I'm actually a better driver than my husband (and he's got the tickets and fines to prove it). I'm just sayin' that these kinds of women in these kinds of large vehicles are often very scary driver's! lol)

Cars, trucks, and Harleys with modified loud exhausts - just plain idiots
I have never once approached my ass with my thumb sir

2. They are UNAWARE their car can drive 55+mph; they drive these Corvettes at 30mph!? what a waste!? but at the same time...with the gas prices the way they are, those 8 cylinders must be a pump killer! hahahahahaha
All eh? I try to cruise at 15-20 over.... This was over 272 miles when I picked the car up



God damn gas sucking V8 lol

For me, it's not so much about the make/model of the car as it is the adornments:

Truck Nutz

A wall of bumper stickers trumpeting the driver's political views

Jesus Fish

Stick family decals

How's that extreme "sensitivity" working for ya?
Is it monetarily profitable or do you just get to feel all smug and self righteous?

Since I'm a New Orleanian, I swear the worst 5 to 500 drivers are right here where a folded fifty will get you a license any day and it doesn't matter what make or model you "drive".

I'm an SUV-driving soccer mom, but I totally agree with you. I deal with those mommies on a daily basis, only difference is I don't go the other way.

Not sure where we were when I took that, close to home somewhere, everything is 45-55 round here. My last ticket was 95 in a 65 chasing a mustang down in my 600rwhp GTO. Don't fit the stereo type

1. All of the liberal eco-statement vehicles- Prius, Insight, Leaf, Smart. These are the ones that are most guaranteed to drive poorly and snarl up traffic, period.
2. Crotch rockets
3. Minivans- make does not matter
4. '90s and 2000s Buicks
5. Any ricer car

You don't, but you're damn ready to make a snap judgement about me because you're too stupid to do otherwise.
Your truck; A. has mud on it and B. is lacking unnecessary flashy chrome bull****. No one who lowers their truck is using it to "make a dump run."
