Several things annoy the crap out of me:

Those who are completely oblivious to anything but themselves, could be either texting, totally unaware or uncaring about anything going on around them, upsetting & completely disrupting road dynamics.

Drivers with a "screw you, me first attitude"

Drivers who have no concept of what a "yield" sign means (or don't care)

Drivers who weave in and out, crossing & changing lanes with no signals, usually 15-25 mph above traffic flow
(See item 2 above)

And that's my SHORT list!:bat:

The yield sign appears to be a confusing one for most drivers. It just amazes me that these people passed their driver's written test. Then again, I have the feeling most people know what it means but don't give a flying *bleep*.

Drivers here forget the rules for 4 way stops. They are over cautious, and wave you forward when they have the right-of-way. Or, everyone is confused, inching forward to see who makes a move.

People who don't use turn signals are the bane of my life. It's so effing simple and it is obviously dangerous to switch lanes or make a turn with ZERO indication. I lay the horn on thick if someone cuts me off doing this, and will continue to do so.

OK, I know this technically isn't a "when driving" thing, but...

Don't you hate it when you park on a lot at the furthest remote corner only to come out to your car to see someone parked right up against you? :banghead::dunno:

Or when you park in a spot and when you come out to the car, the vehicle next to you parks like a foot next to your door... Or when a vehicle, or a truck with the stupid fkn hitch ball decided they wanted to back into the space in front of you and is millimeters away from your bumper and you're freakin a bit because you're not sure if they "bumped" your car... Yeah, I feel ya, gtman.

In no particular order:

1. Driving behind gravel trucks. These guys seem to find me especially on highways.

2. Water puddles. Doesn't matter the size. Especially after I spend 4 hours detailing the Civic and there they are like land mines.

3. Pot holes. As much as I try to avoid them, they are everywhere in my neck of the woods. And even though I have the stock '17 wheels, the feeling, the sound just makes my teeth rattle when I can't avoid those damn things.

What's your 3 peeves? Plus add show ride...

I have 3 to add to this;
#1 is NASCAR-like drivers who drive so slow that they attract all other cars to bunch up around them, as they are totally oblivious to the driving environment and flow of traffic.
#2 are people who are so un-courteous that they do things like race you to a red light or drive so erratically in and out of traffic to get there 1 min before everyone else. These people need karma to change their behavior.
#3 is just the rise in all of these tall vehicles, whether they be minivans, SUVs, or trucks that are so hard to see around and drive safely--just do us a favor and get out of our way!

Oh god yes. I really hate having to put myself practically in an intersection at a blind corner because there’s a brick on wheels sitting twice as high as I am.

We have compact car parking spots their always the furthest spots were I park and yes there’s always a large pickup truck in one of these spots ( maybe the owners brain is compact)
