What bothers you more aggressive drivers or drivers going to slow text messaging
Fast drivers are fine. I personally like to drive fast but if someone wants to go faster than me I am all for it and I will gladly move over and let them pass so they can be the rabbit and get caught speeding. In my mind and from my experience, when people drive fast, they are generally paying attention to what they are doing and are focused on the road. Doesn't make it right/legal, but at least they aren't preoccupied.
The slow and/or texting people are the ones IMO you have to worry more about. The slow ones are holding up traffic and make people pass on the right when they refuse to get out of the left lane. Here in NJ this is a big problem. Many drivers, some from inside NJ but many from NY, CT, and especially PA think the left lane is for going the speed limit, well that simply isn't the case. If you go 55 in the left lane you are a fool and don't understand what the signs all over the highways here mean that say KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS. If you aren't passing anyone, GET OUT OF THE LEFT LANE! As far as texting, that is just plain stupid. Taking your eyes off the road for extended periods is dangerous and foolish, I don't think anyone would disagree with that.
I was going to post on the rabbit situation anyway so this would be a good time to do it.
Using rabbits in some states, such as SC, is pretty useless since I've seen patrolmen here pull over as many as 4 cars at once. It's a art really honed, like a trained sheep herder.
I'm with ks77. Fast drivers don't bother me. In fact, our touring car has been diagnosed with "split personality disorder with periodic episodes of accelerative tendencies." Strangely, it seems to have those episodes only when I'm behind the wheel. '\/\/'
The title says "aggressive drivers," and they can be a pain, but I believe even they don't pose the threat of distracted drivers, and texting is the number one distraction these days.
My car does the same thing! And it is always when I am behind the wheel too!! Odd!!
Same with ours. I learned to drive in the city. My husband learned to drive on a tractor.
I like your little shrug.
One thing that scared me to death one time was being in front of 2 deaf girls in Little Rock. They have to look at each other while signing and they were cutting up and laughing while we were on the interstate going over the river. I was glad to get away from them.
Yikes! Definitely a time for an episode of "accelerative tendencies"!
