    Probably six or seven years ago, I almost rear-ended a shitty early 1990s Ford Escort wagon because their brake lights were not functioning. It was the middle of the day, I was going 45-50 MPH, and this Escort had no way of indicating that it had stopped. The brakes lights were both out; I actually got of the vehicle, walked up to the Escort, and told the elderly drive that both of their brake lights were out, and they reacted in a disturbingly indifferent manner. Idiots like this are the reason people like me who actually take care of their vehicles have to submit to yearly safety emissions that we don't want or need!

    People who think that a turn signal grants automatic right of way and then act like you did something wrong by not letting them in...

    When you beep at somebody for doing something wrong and/or almost causing an accident, and they have the nerve to flip you off...

    No texting I agree with, but no talking on a phone period (without a handsfree device) is just a way for bored cops to generate revenue in my opinion...

    Ideally there's that line but so many people just abuse the phone anyway, I can see why it had to be done

    I know people who refuse to use a smartphone, so they’d have to physically talk on the phone!

    I’ve got Bluetooth and I prefer to not even use that honestly, but I don’t think it’s fair to give a whopping ticket to someone who can’t afford it just because they were talking on their phone; Texting is another story...

    I got Bluetooth too. I use it if I'm parked.

    Some of the older phones had speaker though so it was possible.
