    Stop light ADD. I don't like it when people are distracted at the red light. Usually they are looking at their phone, or have their head down in the console. It's a three minute redlight(thankfully). There are plenty of things going on around them for that three minutes, that can keep them engaged in the task they are trying to accomplish... Driving!

    This. MA has a no texting and handsfree law. Especially annoying at night when you can see the phone light up their face. I use the Henry Rollins method on such bellends

    So his violating the law justifies your doing so. Got it. And here I thought obeying the law is what gives society structure.

    Yup, had 1 today. 8 miles of straight road with gentle hills. On my ass at the top of a hill, backed off some when there was no traffic and plenty of room to pass. Next hill, same thing, rinse and repeat. road come to a T with another road. He passed me with a half mile left before the T stop sign. Some traffic on the other road, so he had to sit there with me sitting behind him. He had at least 6 opportunitys to pass before but didn't til the last. We didn't meet even 1 vehicle. :notsure:

    basically a lot of people in full size pick ups that evidently think that because they have a large vehicle they own the road, are allowed to tailgate and drive like jerks.

    Parking lots, parking lots, and oh yeah, parking lots, after a massive snowstorm! Parking lots are lousy under ideal conditions, with inattentive pedestrians and whatnot; But add massive piles of snow into the mix, and you’ve got hell on earth!

    Yes that’s a stop line. No neither driver stopped at it. Yes both are in the crosswalk.

    I hate when people do that, though sometimes the paint is so faded it’s hard to see the line...

    Not here. And usually not around me, I'm right outside Providence. This intersection is pretty bad for it, almost always (and from all directions). See it constantly.

    And I’m thinking I should stop complaining on here about every jackass I see because other people don’t seem to like it...

    dude driving in RI is a treat. Everyone thinks MA is bad. Nah they’re the minor leagues. We talk funnier and drive worse.

    Here's the one that is driving me insane anymore. It's seems like no one carries any speed in making a turn. If have a green arrow or the intersection is clear carry some fucking speed. I've have people damn near come to a stop in the middle of a turn because their head is so far up their ass that they forgot about the skinny pedal.

    This!

    Also, not necessarily at a controlled intersection/turn where there's a light, but making a right turn onto a side street. It's a bit more tolerable when you're on some deserted backroad, but I've almost slammed into the back of people because I'm on a busy road doing the speed limit (45-55 MPH) and they practically come to a dead stop in the middle of the road, sometimes with no signal on!
