  • How's your driving?

    In an effort not to usurp another thread, I offer this small opportunity. Tell us the foibles of other drivers that you have observed and indicate where you think they may have picked up these bad habits...
    to get started:

    How to Identify Where a Driver is From

    1. One hand on wheel, one hand on horn: Chicago.
    2. One hand on wheel, one finger out window: New York.
    3. One hand on wheel, one finger out window, cutting across all lanes of traffic: New Jersey.
    4. One hand on wheel, one hand on newspaper, foot solidly on accelerator: Boston.
    5. One hand on wheel, one hand on nonfat double decaf cappuccino, cradling cell phone, brick on accelerator, with gun in lap: Los Angeles.
    6. Both hands on wheel, eyes shut, both feet on brake, quivering in terror: Ohio, but driving in California.
    7. Both hands in air, gesturing, both feet on accelerator, head turned to talk to someone in back seat: Italy.
    8. One hand on latte, one knee on wheel, cradling cell phone, foot on brake, mind on radio game: Seattle.
    9. One hand on wheel, one hand on hunting rifle, alternating between both feet being on the accelerator and both feet on brake, throwing McDonald's bag out the window: Texas.
    10. Four-wheel drive pick-up truck, shotgun mounted in rear window, beer cans on floor, squirrel tails attached to antenna: West Virginia.
    11. Two hands gripping wheel, blue hair barely visible above windshield, driving 35 on the Interstate in the left lane with the left blinker on: Florida.

    Gun in lap not allowed in LA. Otherwise add foot on brakes to control speed on jammed freeway.

    Massive amounts of noise rattling the door panels from rap music played way too loud, clouds of smoke pouring out window, oversize spoke rims with skinny tires, loaded gun on lap. Hood rat driving in Sag Nasty

    Driving too fast, running stop signs and red lights, cell phone plugged in ear with mouth running full tilt, never uses turn signals. Detroit area driver that just came off the freeway during rush hour.

    Car going very slow in passing lane, driver's head barely visible above the dash, brake lights keep flashing, left turn signal on for miles before making that right turn by cutting across the outside lanes. Michigan Snowbird.

        No beer cans in the floor. Gun in console. Radio blaring. Raccoon tail on antenna. One hand on the wheel. Waves with the index finger, arm hanging out the window. Georgia.

            There are two major kinds of drivers in Georgia. Those who can and those who can't. Those who can took all their lessons from NASCAR. Those who can't think they can and also took all their driving lessons from NASCAR. Each group has a major subgroup.

            Those who can and drive safely. Yes, they too took lessons from NASCAR, but also the main lesson of the best way to survive a wreck is to not be in one.

            Those who can't have the elderly with one foot always on the brake and the other always on the accelerator. They too took the lessons from NASCAR driving, but the wrong ones.

              I'm close to the 'driving Nascar' method. I also yell out the window too.

                    - 75 mph, drafting off the vehicle ahead using 6" of following distance. Seems inclined to make continuous left hand turns. - Atlanta, Georgia

                      2: putting your blinker on at the last second; you prick most likely a Victorian
                      3. to much loud music and driving like a rev head: idiotic P platers

                          How about including driving 80-90mph, waving a single finger out the window, blasting music so loud the car next to you can hear it and cussing the old lady in front of you who can't drive -- Every young kid I know who just got their DL

                            I hate it when people pull out in front of you without enough room/speed to accelerate to keep up with traffic.

                            Or the nice people who see your blinker and speed up to cut you off from moving over into the lane you want.

                            Or the people who run up behind you, obviously going faster than you, ride your bumper and THEN move in to the lane next to you to pass.

                            Or the people who ride your bumper in an effort to get you to go faster, even though there is an empty lane next to you that could be used to pass you.

                            Or the people who drive like their a$$ is on fire, and then, when they get in front of you, they slow down.

                            I drive a lot for my job and I see most of these behaviors on a daily basis.

                            And I really didn't have to stop...I just kept on going.
