    Damn man. It seems that there are drivers that dont know what to do once they are in the rounabout. Sometimes I see people stopping while in it. This is probably mostly due to our road systems having fewer rounabouts. If you go to australia and european countries, they have rounadabouts everywhere. Pretty smart if you ask me.

    Roundabouts in CA are pretty much a free for all, few people understand how to use them or what they're for. I hate using them for that reason, never know if someone's going to come flying in thinking they have the right of way and plow right into you. Luckily they aren't very common out here

    Just to add another "grinds my gears" moment, drivers that are on an 4-way intersection with a flashing red signal lights.

    We just relocated from SoCal to Sacramento area. There's a lot more roundabouts here, and the most common thing I see is that everyone seems to think "yield" means "come to a full and complete stop"... tons of drivers treat them like a stop sign. It's absolutely frustrating.

    Packing cigs actually has a few benefits. Compresses the tobacco so that they burn slower, also makes it less likely for the cherry to fall off. Plus it leaves a little extra paper on the end making them easier to light. Just sayin.

    Heres a good one: so Im trying to merge on to the highway theres not much of a merge lane so you have to basically weave into the traffic. So I see my spot right behind a truck, so what does this jackass on the highway do?? comes from the far lane into my lane right at the merge point...about side swiped me and almost pushed me into the guard rail!!! I jammed on the brakes and cut in behind him blaring the horn....stupid idiots.:mad:

    Interesting story from Friday night.

    I had been working on cars with some friends late into the night and I wanted a coffee from the gas station. As I was leaving, I saw some people playing volleyball in the middle of the street (college town, stuff like this isn't unusual). I slowly rolled up and waited for them to move to the sidewalk, and they did. Then one meathead-looking guy ran up and tried to grab onto my bedside. I slammed on my brakes, rolled down the window, and proceeded to yell some angry language his way before taking off slightly more peeved than I had been.

    What kind of idiot decides that it's a good idea to pick a fight with a vehicle that weighs over 2 tons? I'm not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I know that punching cars is not a smart thing to be doing.
