Does it uposet you when you are driving along at the speed limit and someone pulls out in front of you and goes so slow that you have to slow down? And some of them will poke along and there was no one behind you and they could have waited for you to go by. Or either they'll pull out, make you slow down and then turn off the road immediently? What do you feel? What do you do?

That is my pet peeve! I hate it. I usually just tell them off a little . they don't hear me but i feel better. If it was a close call i may blow my horn, longer the madder i am. This old lady(80's-90's?) pulled out in front of me and another car going about50 and she went about 10 MPH for about 30 feet then pulled into a church parking lot. We both almost wrecked. I did not blow at her, because of her age, and the fact that she was going to church but i hope she prayed for better eyesight.

Boy you have more patience than I do! I probably would have pulled up behind her and got out of my car with my Bible and beat her on the head! lol Just kidding!

I do get frustrated BUT, there isn't much you can do. I drive defensively and hope for the best. My step-dad is a truckdriver, he taught me how to drive and I am glad he did. Professional drivers are always targets for people to run accident scams on, so he showed me the best offense is a good defense! You can never really know what the other person will do. You have to be prepared for anything!

Yep I hate it and I also hate when other drivers flash their lights at you when you are doing the limit.

Hate when that happens! I also despise when I'm going the speed limit and someone either rides right on my bumper (making me feel pressured to go faster) or passes me and goe 20 miles over the sped limit ahead of me. :p

I am 43 years old and I learned along time ago to drive DEFENSIVELY. You never know what the other a**hole is going to do. I never get upset on the road and just relax. I will get to my destination sooner or later.
