But then again, I saw a guy driving a miada once with a newspaper in one hand , coffee in the other, papers in his lap, and his knees on the wheel. I made sure to get way the heck in front of him.
Older than I just was ,and younger than I will soo be.
It's generally accepted that women are the safest drivers, but sometimes I wonder. The other day, driving home from work, a woman was in front of me as we approached a junction. Both of us were turning left, and the main light was red but the left filter was green. As she chugged at 20 kph towards it, it turned orange and she slowed down and stopped. Then it turned red and she promptly took off and drove right through . . . .

One day, I was driving to work and I was behind an older Pontiac Bonneville that was driving at an inconsistent speed and weaving around the lane. Being rush hour, it was difficult to get around the car, but when I did I saw an African-American man with dreadlocks smoking what was clearly a joint. As I watched, he pulled out a flask and took a swig off it. Then he pulled out what looked like a vial of white powder and put it to his nose.
That explained a thing or two... so I slowed down, got behind him again, called 911, and read them his license plate.
But the two words that strike fear into my heart are "Toyota Sienna." If it's in the Bay Area, I guarantee that there will be a very clueless driver behind the wheel. And they WON'T have being drunk/high as an excuse, either.

Of course not. It will just be an Asian lady.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I thought for sure it would be Massachusetts. They have to be the worst drivers in the world. I cringe when I'm on the Mass Pike. Though I have to agree with the Toyota Sienna. I have a tendency to break the law speed wise to get away from them. I want to see the picture of the guy she was seeing. He must be one desperate son of a gun.
Professor Foltz: You push down on that yolk, the houses get bigger, you pull back on the yolk, the houses get bigger.
At least there's a sort of Zen to driving in Massachusetts, and you can have some semblance of relative safety if you stick to the slow lane and keep your head on a swivel, and you can swim with the sharks in the fast lane if you chose to do so.
On the FL Pike they'll come over and cut you out even if you are in the slow lane minding your own business, they have no idea of what lanes are for, they'd drive the wrong way down the interstate if we'd let them, they are totally insane in my book...

The post intro story sounds like something Jay Leno would feature in his weird stories bits. It just proves how people have no common sense when they drive.
Among my choices of 'Worst Driving Offenders':
The 'clueless' driver, one not familiar with the area and makes sudden cut-offs to make the exit they need or turn.
The 'GPS idiot', drivers who slavishly follow GPS's, ignoring all common sense, let it distract the from real driving.
The ones on cell phones, especially ones emotional in their discussion and ignoring their first duty to drive.
SUV drivers going too fast for the physics of their vehicles, especially in snowy/wet/icy conditions.
The fast lane driver going the speed limit or less.
The bumper kissers, at high speeds climbing up your ***, tying to get 1 more car length.
The bored/tired driver, easily distracted and not paying full attention to driving.
Ones driving unsafe cars, with 'see through tires', parts rusting off, leaking exhaust systems, non-operating tail/stop/signal lights.
Those that don't use turn signals when changing lanes or making a turn.
I live in New Jersey, which has way too many bad drivers, but due to low average speeds, our death rates are among the lowest in the USA.
