    I hate it when people pull out in front of you then you have to press hard on your brakes.
    Even worse, when they just slowly accelerate like they're the only ones there. If i ever pull out in a tight spot, I make sure to hammer down so I'm not a huge ass.

    I want a law that makes it so you legally don't have to apply your brakes, and if you hit them, it's 100% their fault.


    How bout you?

    x2 on turn signals being enforced. They are there for a reason and it's really not that hard to move your finger one inch. ;)

    I'd rather have somebody signal and not do anything than cut me off.

    What about cell phones? It's kind of annoying to see people just pull out in front of you in an intersection make you slow down/stop and see they are on the phone.

    I know they are illegal in NY and CA but not here unfortunately. In CA are drivers aloud to use blue tooth like in NY?

    The ban of cell phone use while driving is one thing that would save a bunch of lives and prevent a ton of accidents
    Drivers don't piss me off anymore, I just go slower and look around more. Honestly, most drivers are predictable, to a point, so it is easier to avoid situations that can lead to accidents. I've been the dumb ass driving quicker than I needed to when I was younger.
