Thumbs down (Driving)Good Ideas gone Bad

Like anything else, when the rules are followed things work great! But inject a couple of morons that can't, then it turns bad ! Two that come up everyday.

1) Right turn on Red
2) Delayed Red Lights

These are my current favorite bitches about driving, comment or add yours. Let me know, its not just me?

Hi All,

One of the things that realy gets me P Oed is when your sitting in traffic and someone cuts up along the shoulder and the person 2 or 3 vehicles in front of you just lets them in, B S wait in line like the rest of us !!!

Mine is the person who speeds up to pass you, then cuts you off to get to the exit.
9 times out of 10 there is nothing behind you.
My answer, railroad air horns under front of motor home, but the DW says NO.

"The closer you are... the slower I'll go"

that and outside (passing) lane hogs or worse yet the self appointed junior highway patrol who thing they are helping something by going 1 MPH below the posted.

As the late great George Carlin used to ponder..... "Ever wish your headlights were 50 cal machine guns?"

Inpursuit: or worse yet the self appointed junior highway patrol who thing they are helping something by going 1 MPH below the posted.

How fast do you think we SHOULD be driving?

I travel 63mph on Interstates, unless I am impeding traffic. Does it make you feel good when some idiot does something stupid and gets ticketed by a policeman? Last year, on the way back from NovaScotia in Conneticut or Mass. we were crawling along on the interstate, right lane closed and signs said do not drive on shoulders. A gentleman on a harley decided to travel on the left shoulder. About three miles further, a Highway Patrolman had him stopped writing a citation. Boy, you should have heard the people blowing the horn and laughing, including me.

I just love it when I am driving along in the curb lane at a reasonable speed and some Yahoo is getting on the highway, while talking on his or her cell phone or munching a Big Mac, when they realize that they had better stand on either the brake or gas pedal or risk a close encounter of the worst kind!

I wanted to carry a roll of toilet tissue up front to offer to these people but the DW said no.

When I can, I will move over, but as you all know, sometimes it is just not possible.

Do what I do, if you see them coming with suficient time I move to the right and block the lane. They pull up on me and have no place to go, with any luck those behind you are pissed and won't let them in

I assume you're talking about the people who DON'T turn right on red, when they could, thus holding up the line?

But I don't get the second one ... what do you mean?

C/M I'm talking about the ones that just turn right without stopping. or the morons that don't stop at red light because they have a couple extra seconds.

Red light runners and the ones that whine about the red light cameras.
The ones that do not understand that right turn on red means after you cone to a full stop.

Always thought it would be nice to have 4 spring loaded 8í studs, hinged 2 on each side, one hinged at the front and one at the rear about head light high with interior release buttons. For those passing on the right just release the one on the right hinged at the rear as they approach For the high beamers let the one on the left hinged at the front go. With proper usage you can get em all from either direction or side.

Would work on my pet peeve too, the one who has been closing in the passing lane for twenty minutes then slows to your speed as he draws along side, trapping you so you canít pass.

The one that bugs me is when there are two left turn lanes and a semi, in the outer lane turns without making the turn wide enough. The front stays in the lane but the back drifts out of the lane and into the the inner lane. I've seen a lot of cars having to slam on their brakes to get out of the way. I practice staying in the outer lane and it is not hard to stay there, you just go slow and make it wide. Joe
