For me it's when I sneeze. It can be scary if it happens like 5 times in a row while in a curve...How about you? What ticks you off while you're behind the wheel?

Usually it's other drivers that tick me off on the road. I hate the ones that weave in and out of traffic. Speeding around like that is dangerous. People cutting other people off and stuff drives me crazy.

That's true...My driving instructor was so right..."anticipating other drivers' mistakes is vital". Of course you drive the best you can, but you have to have your "internal radar" on at all times.

What really irritated on the road would be other drivers who are having a difficult time staying in their lane. It's really frustrating especially when you're on a 2 lane road and that car is running very slow and it's blocking you since it's over the line. Once I get a small window, I'd pass the car by. If on a much wider street, if I get really aggravated, well I admit I drive beside them sometimes and tell them to stay on their lane.

Totally agree:) You have to let know the driver at fault if possible : it feels good afterwards & there is a chance you have knocked some sense into that driver, thus preventing an accident in the making, who knows?

It's the other drivers. It really drives me crazy especially those motorcycle drivers acting as if they are the king of the road swerving like they own the road themselves. I specially hate it when this motorcycle drivers try to squeeze themselves in small spaces to move further ahead most especially when the traffic is not moving. And if you accidentally bump into them, they will act like it's all your fault since you are driving a car. grrrr!

Wow, your motorcycle example reminds me of a Youtube video I saw a few weeks ago. Did you see the video with the guy on a highway, riding his motorcycle on his back, while texting on his cell phone? That's just wrong:)

I get ticked off easily when I'm behind the wheel. It has always been the other drivers on the road that have tested my nerves. I get so aggravated with other drivers. The other day on my way to work I was stuck behind this one man who was going under the speed limit, then he began to slowly swerve from side to side in his lane. Why? I have no idea. I swear people try to make me late for work!

Oh that pisses me off too...when it's not speed demons, it's drivers that seem to think they're still on their lawn tractor:) I take pride in following the road rules, and I consider it a privilege to drive a car : but as the years pass, I can witness more & more drivers clearly thinking the opposite & driving recklessly:(

The thing that irritates me the most is when people don't use their turn-signals. Grrrrrrrr! If people would only signal their intention there probably wouldn't be as many accidents. I live across from a corner and I see this all the time with cars turning the corner, or passing somebody. The ones that really get my knickers in a bunch are the ones on the freeway who go all the way from the left lane, and cross 3 lanes to get to the exit ramp...and never use their signal at all. Bad enough at other times, but when they're flying at 65 there is no excuse for it. Guess that kind of person feels like everyone else has esp and can just intuit where they're going to go lol.

Yes, some drivers seem to think too often that they're alone on the road. One thing that really irks me is when I come first at a stop sign and there's this driver coming to my right on the other side of the corner, and doesn't break to do his stop...unless I break again after I made my stop, it's a collision for sure.

What irritates me the most is the fact that some people like to drive in the express lanes while going under speed limit. I mean cmon, all they're doing is slowing down traffic by doing this. If they want to travel under the speed limit they should stay out of the express lanes. That my opinion though, some people don't think that theres anything wrong with it.
