Throw here all what you experienced on road, what you wished to call a senseless driver you encountered, your rants, raves, grudges, irritations etc.

my daily commute is in a 4 lane road (not highway). this evening, the lady in the right lane (already driving very very slow), suddenly put the left signal and desperately trying to move to the left lane. After about 200 feet of so, the guy in front of me (we were in the left lane already), gave way for the lady to come in to the left lane. You wont't believe, this lady came in to the left lane and was driving even slower. What the hell she was doing? I can't really understand why people do this non-sense?

Being a CDL driver my absolute pet peeve is the morons that drive in the early morning and in rain with no lights on at all. We can't see these people until they are right on us. I encounter at least 5-10 vehicles in a 5 mile stretch of one road that I travel on each day with their lights completely off.

Cutting in front of you and then change back to the other lane.

Hey Hemond, that is very sad to hear and to know such things happen. I could never imagine someone doing this kind of nasty things. They are punishable in all sense - both attacking the cyclists and also littering the public place.

Hi Hemond,

What you posted is a sad testimony to that element of our society. You know my background and maybe that subject, more generalized, should be preached about.

I don't know the extent of these type of people, but it seems to be getting much worse than ever. Facebook is losing advertisers due to their lack of control of the posters (I don't frequent Social Websites except Gas Buddy). The Moderators seem to maintain some sort of control here once they are notified.

Keep on cycling -- you'll stay in better physical shape and enjoy the experience :-). MGY

Left turn crossing oncoming left lanes.

Especially hate it when such lazy left-turners trigger the inductive loop forcing the light to cycle making everyone else stop for a vehicle which does not exist.

this happened today - in the four lane (two lanes each direction) i was on the left lane going just about within the speed limit followed by other vehicles. the guy on the right lane (real slow moving) who had a very clear road ahead, suddenly jumped to left lane and continued in the slow speed he was going. I still can't understand what prompted him or what was his rationale behind his behavior? just crazy!

Lack of use of headlights when conditions warrant, such as rain, fog, blowing snow and before dawn or after dusk. DRLs and parking lights don't count.

Slow driver's in the left lane that won't move over for faster vehicles. It's even the law here that you must move over. Some of those idiots won't even move over for Emergency Vehicles.

The dumb azzes who suddenly cut into my lane while I'm slowing to a stoplight just to save one car length. 4 tons of truck don't stop as quickly as most think. One of these days, they'll eat some radiator from behind. 1.5ton car vs 4 ton truck (or tractor rig for that matter)--guess who wins.

If I know the driver in the next lane, or right behind me is paying attention, that's one thing. I'll get nervous in the situation if I can tell that the driver is not really paying attention.

What bothers me is the lack of turn signal use. Rampant and frustrating.

I was just driving home with my kid and it is a calm Sunday noon. One truck was driving dangerously close behind me, which really made me totally uneasy.
