Yeah, I have seen them hit the lights like that also. What annoys me is to see them pull up and park in a handicap spot at restaurants and places so they can go in and eat.

yeah I know and some COPS think they are ABOVE THE LAW. I see cops all the time speeding, driving through stop signs. I've even seen them turn on their siren when going through a red light and then turning it off once they go through.

I know here it is partly the fault of the police also, I see people doing stupid things right in front of the police and they do not get pulled over for it. If you keep getting away with breaking little laws then the people will escalate up to breaking even more serious laws. Parking illegally, running stop signs, cutting people all just shows a lack of respect for other people...

It is coming down to people not learning how to drive anymore. The drivers tests are a joke and then there are so many people who do not know how to drive in the first place that is teaching more people how they drive...

Yes, the overly polite retard is more obnoxious than the aggressive driver, IMO. It's the right of way for a reason. It isn't arbitrary. I call these drivers "traffic cops". I thought it was a southern thing, but when I visited back north recently, I realize it's everywhere. I don't seem to remember this being a thing 10 years ago. Right of way was right of way.

Thats why a good driver stays far enough behind the car in front of them that there is no risk if that person chooses to let someone in.

LOL! I hear you, too. How bout the ones at the four way stop sign that stop 5 minutes before you do, but insist of waving at you to go first? I don't get it. If you STOP first, you GO first. Plain and simple. Another "polite" one. I'm sorry, I love polite people, there's just an appropriate time when and when not to be polite.

First of all, I hear ya, I hate folks that do that!

That said, you'd be surprised at how MORE accidents happen because of "polite" drivers. They're the ones that stop suddenly in front of you to let someone in front of them that wasn't PLANNING on cutting in front of them but the polite driver made that descision FOR them and created a space at the sudden cost of the screeching car behind them.

THAT drives me FREAKIN NUTZ!!!!!

people cutting out in front of me on the way to work. They do it all the time. Don't they see me? I have to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting them and NO I am going the speed limit, well, 5 miles over I guess. I thought once about slamming into the (curse word here), but I would get the ticket for "following too close" Oh well!
