Some of the responses in here crack me up...you got one person saying slow drivers in the left lane, and the next saying tailgaters...I'd be willing to bet some of these people complaining about tailgaters are LLCers, and some of the ones complaining about LLCers are tailgaters...

"Drivers driving slow in the passing lane really bothers me........"

While not as dangerous as tailgating, it's every bit as annoying and shouldn't be done...

another one that gets my goat, people who DO NOT TURN on red when they can ,they wait until green comes (it takes a LONG time to come!) and yes THEY FINALLY TURN right! ,its LEGAL to turn right on red it has been since the damn 70s! , and YES there wasnt a car in sight to wait on either it was all clear ,unbeleivable knowledge of the traffic laws some ppl have

i skip right around them.,,across the parking lot to where i can turn right as soon AS I CAN, knowing they will NEVER turn anyways ,i aint falling for the "banana in the tailpipe"

The driver who has to pass you no matter how fast you are going. The driver who passes you and then slows down to make a right turn. People who slow down for a green light just in case it turns red. Driver who turns left from a lot in the middle of the drive when there is room for two cars...thus preventing you from making a right. People who don't know how to merge on a freeway. They creep sheepishly along hugging the entrance lane wanting you to slow down to let them in rather than obtaining the speed limit before the end of the lane and seamlessly merging. Need I say more?

There are four kinds of drivers that really annoy me:

1) Those people who wait to see if no cars are coming, then when they see you coming they wait until you're almost beside them to turn.

2) People who can't drive in the middle of a lane.

3) People who don't use blinkers.

4) The worst of them all, police officers who don't follow basic rules (like using a blinker).

The drivers that tick me off are fellow GBers who post fake prices just to get points. I drive diesel so there are not as many stations that carry diesel. When I see a good price I will go a little out of my way to get extra fuel. When I get there I find that the station doesn't even carry diesel. Yet my fellow GBers are out there posting these fake prices every day, it's not a mistake, it's greed.

I noticed a large number of complaints about tailgaters, I wonder if these people have this problem while, DRIVING SLOWLY IN THE LEFT LANE? Tailgating wouldn't be a problem if everyone observed that sign posted on the road: SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT. When I see a car coming up on me, (because I actually look at my rear view mirror every 10-12 secs, everyone should try it sometimes, it's called situational awareness) I will move over no matter what lane I am in. AC/DC said it best, WE'RE ON A HIGHWAY TO HELL!!!! So enjoy the road, fly low, avoid the radar, and remember the best sound you will hear at night is the bathroom door closing.

When you are attempting to make a left turn across oncoming traffic and a courteous driver stops to let you turn across his path. But then the cars behind start passing him on the inside, often in the breakdown lane.

People who don't use their signals. People that think everyone needs to hear their tunes and then the idiots who tailgate,had trouble stopping tonite and I thought for sure he was going to hit me. I need to put my trailer hitch back on, if they hit that it will do more damage to their vehicle than mine.

Tailgates are number one on my list.

People that like to share the low end of their audio system's frequency spectrum with me at a stop light. I would really like to measure the db level of the "sound" in their car. Bet they need hearing aids before I do.
