What annoys you the most about shit drivers? I can't stand when someone passes me on the highway, merges into my lane, then slows down to the speed limit. Why the fuck would you pass someone only to slow down? How unaware are you?

Acceptable to me if they had to get into the passing lane to let someone in, then had no choice but to accelerate ahead of you.

Biggest peeve is no lights on in fog/rain/poor light/etc. I'm glad the canucks are mandating constantly lit tails as well as DRLs. Common sense just isn't enough anymore.

This is an order following problem.

The order follower feels bad when breaking (commercial) limits, and therefor is doing you a favor in denying your self determination to travel how you may, without violating NAP.

The order follower is so proud that they feel trangressed against, in having to witness your not violating their property in a style of which they dissapprove.

A slave only wishes that others may be enslaved as they, for the better good, for the children, for their pride, for the state.

What's the point? Like here's an example, I'm sitting at a light, behind me is some basketball american. Light turns green and I'm in a manuel so it's pretty spirited acceleration. There's another light and turns yellow when I go through. A minute later same basketball is now overtaking on the right at 80 on a 45 road. Not even a highway.

Did I trigger them somehow by making it through the light? Was it the spirited acceleration?

See it's brainlet shit like do the speed limit, or not thinking that people drive cars besides autotragic shit that makes brainlets triggered soo easily. What's the point of traffic rules when so many brainlets are behind the wheel?

traffic lights follow R-RY-G-G blink-Y-R pattern
everyone drives manual so its expected you spool up and slowly clutch out in first during RY, allowing all following traffic to "simultaneously" get rolling
always one fucktard on their phone or only spooling up at green, leaving the signal block by the time a third of the green cycle has passed.
signal block meant to process 10 cars only manages 4 thanks to tard

traffic lights have an explicit turning lane (going across intersection) and one to go straight or turn in the other direction
on different cycles. Neither is green simultaneously
signs showing lane exclusivity back 400 meters and people should appropriately merge on time.
fucktard up front who sits in intersection turnoff lane and goes straight when other correct lane is green almost causing crash since outgoing lane is only 1 wide.

city avenue is usually 2 lane wide for any direction
except after 6pm when curbside lane becomes a parking lane, and all day on WE's
people are supposed to merge civilly waaaay earlier, but do not
people realize they cannot continue while still going a fast clip and forces non-curbside lane to allow them in
without blinker

country with "blink/indicate when LEAVING ROUNDABOUT" rule
lets ingoing traffic keep relative momentum so people behind aren't held up since "if you are leaving before I enter no-one should crash, right?"

Dreamworx
Dreamworx

I have a 60 minute commute, one way, mostly interstate. Here is the greatest advice I've ever received.

Pass people at least 10mph faster than they're going.

People are horrible at using their cruise control. Even those that do use it will instinctively push down on the accelerator when they get passed because of the herding mentality. Ever been on a long highway and encoutnered groups of cars, in little herds of maybe 4 or 5, all next to each other? There may be several miles between these pods.

The single most dangerous place you can be on the highway is next to another few-thousand-pound vehicle doing 70-80mph, yet it's exactly where people want to be.

The only way to break others of wanting to match your speed and stick with you is to pass them at a speed fast enough that the instinct won't register.

Even if you're going, let's say, 72 and you want to pass someone going 70. Ramp it up to 80 while you pass or that person will suddenly be in your rear view mirror for the next 10 minutes until their brain tells them to pass you for some inexplicable reason, just to slow down back to 70 another couple miles up the road, initiating a leap frog.

Another piece of great advice is to never let BMW owners merge.

as you can clearly see from the picture there is room enough for two vehicles to get around it safely with plenty of room, including artics, BUT people constantly drift across both lanes before exiting into the left lane, or they'll exit to the right from the left and vice versa, with no indicators, and when you honk at these cunts they don't understand what they've done wrong

Bitch in a jeep renegade cuts into my lane at the last second, and continues to go 65
I beep, she gives me the finger
I fucking rage for some reason
Find an opening in the middle lane and pass her
Get back into passing lane
Bitch speeds up and matches my speed (80mph) then tailgates me and gives me to finger+honks
When she does that I slammed on the brakes as hard as I could without spinning out
For some reason the bitch hit the brakes and turned her wheel towards the guard rail
She hits the guard rail and flips into the median

I pull over and call the cops, people pull over and run to aid the bitch
The bitch is alright, manages to get out of her car
Starts hysterically telling all the bystanders that I caused this accident
Bitch started screaming at me, saying I ruined her life and almost killed her
I stay silent, kind of in shock
Police finally come and separate us to get our statements
Bitch is a hysterical mess, cop has to tell her to calm down multiple times
They ask me what happened
I try to be as honest as I can so I don't sound sketchy
"Someone cut into my lane so I had to hit the brakes"
Then proceed to tell the cop that she was extremely close to my bumper and looked like she was on her phone
Cops get my info then clear me to leave, bitch still hysterical on the roadside

i'm not creating whatever situation, nor did i make the hypothetical you're speaking of.

in heavy traffic, it's very common to find the right lane or the middle and right lane chock full with cars and trucks. i have that during my morning commute and i have that during my evening commute. i use the left lane to pass and go well above the speed limit. and i still find myself tailgated and honked at constantly. in fact, it's the only situation i find myself tailgated and honked at.

when getting out of the way, as advocated by you, constitutes cutting into whatever is left of the safety distance on the neighboring lane, i don't do that. it's a risk i don't want to take for the sake of the driver following me who doesn't really take risk nor safety of anyone around him into account.

Not saying i agree with the post, but the responsibility is on the following vehicle to maintain a safe following distance, and if you fail to maintain that distance and have an accident, it will be your fault

That's why I speed up faster than they do.

not if the first car is willingly provoking an accident, as displayed in user's story.

admits to constantly holding up the left lane
defends still driving in the left lane.

Go faster or become a right lane sheep. Every person behind you that you've ever held up doesn't care about your commute, only that you're making theirs super frustrating.

Realize, you just told us all you get honked at on a regular basis for holding up cars in the passing lane.

How deep do you want to dig this

i'm holding the left lane as long as i'm passing and as long as i'm substantially faster than the right lane. this is not wrong. this is also not about passing but about maintaining safety distance while passing. i'm yet to see an argument why following a car at 160 km/h with some 5 meters between you is somehow acceptable.

take note that the left lane often isn't any less crowded than the right lane. more often than not, there will be another car right in front me. the tailgater can earn, what, maybe 60 meters net from endangering me and everyone else.

You said
and i still find myself tailgated and honked at constantly.

constantly other people are trying to go faster than you, and you're blocking the passing lane. Even now, you're absolutely convinced that it's EVERYONE ELSE that's the problem, not you.

You are justifying the idea that you get to decide how fast everyone behind you goes.

I drive 60 minutes to work every day, 90% of which is the interstate, and half of that in a major metropolitan area. If you're trying to bullshit me to say that you could have literally NO chance to just get over, I'll tell you that you're not going to get very far.

not a situation
not a hypothetical

your entire position relies on the variable that there are people in the right lane you're passing. Sure, you can't get over at that specific moment, but don't try and say that there just aren't any possiblities to move over during any part of your entire commute. That's just so improbable as to be indistiguishable from impossible.

A reminder, you told us how you constantly are berated by drivers every day that you're pissing off. You're arguing from a pretty shitty spot.

I keep a mental count of traffic violation fines.
#1 offense is not using turn signals.
10 EUR for signaling when entering a roundabout. (You're not allowed to.)
10 EUR for NOT signaling when exiting the roundabout.
I estimate you could collect 10000€+ at an average German roundabout every day.

i see that you're assuming i only ever use the left lane. that is not correct, as stated in . when i'm done passing, i move over and continue at the same speed. when i see another car in front of me, i change lanes before i get to close to the car in front of me. this is basic highway and interstate driving etiquette.

my daily commute is an hour on ze autobahn, one way, between two major urban centers, one of which is a state capital. i usually drive up to 150 km/h where its's 120 km/h and some 200 km/h where there's no speed limit. by "constantly" getting tailgated and honked at, i mean that it happens two times per day on average that someone's taking offense to me going 20 over the limit while passing cars and not immediately moving into the middle lane with a hefty speed surplus and a middle lane crammed with econoboxes avoiding the trucks in the right lane.

the tailgaters don't have the patience for me to pass whatever pack is crowding the middle lane during the most busy hours of the day. they go right up behind me, go through the motions of their tired i've-got-places-to-be shtick honking and gesturing, and casually ignore the car some 100 meters in front of me that's in the same situation and that they'll run into right away anyway. i never see them make any real progress doing that dumbass routine.

there just isn't any justification for this. it's dumb and dangerous.

also please spare me any more arguments based on the comfortable assumption that i'm an irredeemable lane hogging slowpoke. i've been DDing a good 60k kilometers per year for some eight years now. i've also seen my share of bad accidents, not maintaining safety distance being the most common and most avoidable cause.

I feel like Prius drivers here in California are the most notorious for this offense. I had a recent event where there was a Prius driver with a co-exist bumper sticker who tried to speed up when I was going to pass her. I simply dropped a gear and flew on through to guarantee the space between the two of us, but she just HAD to retaliate by trying to flash me with her high beams at 2 o' clock in the afternoon.

No shit. I still haven't said that tailgating is a justified behavior.

swapping lanes and slowing down for less than 10 seconds before speeding back up and jumping back into the left lane avoids any confrontation.

You are not entitled to never have to disengage your cruise control.

whereismyname

why even are you debating me then. my only point is that tailgating is unwarranted and dangerous. i wasn't talking about anything else.

swapping lanes and slowing down for less than 10 seconds before speeding back up and jumping back into the left lane avoids any confrontation.
yes, sure. i move back to the middle or right lane when i'm done passing. i also don't think it should on me to disarm critical situations i did not provoke. agency matters.

You are not entitled to never have to disengage your cruise control.
entirely besides the point. that said, are you as critical of drivers feeling entitled to never have to slow down for ten seconds and wait for the leading car to clear the lane?

Everyone in CA slows to 65 or less as soon as they see any police car or security car.
Most of the time, the cops people slow down for lack jurisdiction to pull you over, especially on the freeway. And a security car can't do jack shit.
Once I pass said cruiser, suddenly people have the 'aha' moment of knowing its safe to pass.

This is perfectly legal in most places and literally everyone does it because it fucking works. If you can't exit somewhere at a light controlled intersection you will literally never be able to make a left turn until 3 in the morning unless you only need to fight one direction of traffic at a time.

What if I have to exit left up ahead? I'm obviously going to drive defensively and get over early and not going to move over and risk missing it, especially in super heavy traffic.

How the fuck are you supposed to use a roundabout then? You have zero ability to tell where a person is exiting and then it just becomes an unnecessarily large all way stop

As long as you set the cruise so the truck can too, you eliminate 95% of semi tailgating. The other five is poo in the loos.
Seriously, we tailgate to get people to stop going under the limit or to get people to just stop floating in speed.

if there is a long line of slow cars, find a gap , move over to let faster people pass, then resume passing the cars

i know this never happens because its a pain in your ass to do, but hey that's the kind of behavior we are bitching about. or you could go faster. the only other third option is to pretend that you own the fast lane and piss everyone off behind you or force them into other dangerous situations like passing on the right

Firespawn

dude, you shouldn't be using the passing lane, just get over to the right where you're more comfortable or else you're going to get shot one of these days by some road rager, not that i would care all that much

you are not any more entitled to move faster than me than i am to pass cars in the passing lane. if anything, the autistic shrieking in this thread made me even less willing to force myself into the middle or right lane and brake down a lot just to let someone pass who'll be stuck right in front of me for the next 10 kilometers anyway.

i hope you enjoy my taillights.
