Sat Jul 11, 2009 11:42 pm

Every day on the morning commute you see the typical speeding idiots and cell phone texters but every now and then you see the dumb SH!+$ who have to go and shave, put on their make-up, and read the paper. So Im sure every a-nutter here who can drive all around the world has seen there fair share of dumb things so lets make a list and feel free to go past 101...


1.) Text

2.) Read

3.) Oral sex (Yes I saw this a few times quite interesting...)

I have one that kinda stems off from that (having to do with sex):

-Playing with your passenger's private parts, a.k.a Playing with the "headlights" or "transmission stick"

That could be quite distracting to the other drivers as well, as if that's worthy of posting!  Wink  eyepopping

Standing up through the sunroof to take a rather nifty photo whilst waiting for the light to change before turning into the Wendy's on Airport Rd (At YYZ of course).

In Southern California, deciding that you have enough time while sitting at a stop light or in traffic on the 405 to drop the convertible roof on your "New Beetle"... please grow up!   

Just happened to me last week.... morons!!!

Worst I've seen was a woman eating a chicken in line at a toll booth. Not a piece of chicken, a whole chicken.
She had her elbows on the steering wheel and her hands were holding an entire rotisserie chicken just above the steering wheel. Probably one of the funniest things I've seen in my life.

I'll have to ask a friend of mine what he's seen, he works at a tollbooth on the PA Turnpike and I'm sure he's seen some interesting things.

That is one feature that I think is unnecessary in any automobile. If they're going to do that, they might as well install a freaking microwave, and have popcorn stowed away in one of the pouches behind the seats in front or in one of the doors!

It would be a 1-up on the cup-holders, too!

When I bought my viper it came with an option to have a dvd player to play on the built in GPS and live stream TV witch is probably a stupid hazard waiting to happen!

One of the reasons I had my front windows tinted ...  devil 

- changing drivers.
- remaining stopped when the light turns green.
- changing (or trying to change) lanes, in other words, deciding you don't want to turn left so you try to edge over to the other lane blocking everyone else. Very frustrating when there is an advance left turn signal and no one can go anywhere because your ass end is blocking the lane.

I've seen plenty of the earlier ones. Here's one more that I find annoying, stupid, and dangerous:

-Having an infant or kid sit in the lap of the driver. They can be very destracting, press buttons, etc.

ery true but you get those stupid people who choose to do on the freeway and I would hate to see someone do it on the Audobon... Eating a whole chicken, texting, with a small child/dog hovering around you while your head is out of the moon roof at 100+ MPH

Oh god I forgot how much I hated that one. So often I see people driving with a freaking animal on top of them and crawling all over the place. Normally it's the stereotypical stupid-blonde types with their rat-sized chihuahuas and other small "cutesy" dogs that they treat like barbie dolls. It's sickening.

What is sad is it is a huge driving hazard. California made texting and talking on the phone w/o a headset but they still let you have your chihuahua on your lap and eat whole chickens (Sorry but that is the most amazing thing I have ever heard and made my day  Big grin )

If there's one thing I hate, it's that people drive over the stop line during a red light, and then they complain that I don't do the same thing. The problem is that in Costa Rica, the stop lines in front of the traffic lights, are almost below the lights themselves. People here have the nasty habit of creeping a bit forward during a red light (almost to a point where they are either on a pedestrian crossing, or they obstruct the crossing), and once the light goes green, they don't move at all because they're not looking at the lights, or they need 5 minutes to switch to first gear.

So I do it the German-Italian way (a habit I acquired from my father): If it's red, I stop about a metre behind the line (so that the line barely disappears under the bumper from my point of view). When I feel that it's about to go green, I simply put in the first gear, so that once it's green, I can ask the other drivers if they have slept well while I'm happily on my way.  Wink

What about idiots who pull into the crosswalk zone so there in the way then get mad at you for crossing.

The worst drivers are the "Bros"

*a usually white young male, found commonly in places like san bernardino county in california, as well as orange county. always, without exception, drive big lifted trucks, often white. has the name of their crew or whatever in big white letters on their back window (ie, "skin", "metal mulisha". wear: trucker hats off center, plug earrings, sunglasses, wife beater shirt or no shirt, sagging dickies shorts, high black socks, skater shoes or those black corduroy slipper things, have a lot of tatoos of things like stars.* (scorce Urban Dictionary)

Theres often 5 or more crammed in a truck made for 3 and they go flying up to every stop light and go from 80 to 0 in 50ft and have their loud ass music playing to disrupt us all. One of these guys almost hit my cars...

*a usually white young male, found commonly in places like san bernardino county in california, as well as orange county. always, without exception, drive big lifted trucks, often white. has the name of their crew or whatever in big white letters on their back window (ie, "skin", "metal mulisha". wear: trucker hats off center, plug earrings, sunglasses, wife beater shirt or no shirt, sagging dickies shorts, high black socks, skater shoes or those black corduroy slipper things, have a lot of tatoos of things like stars.* (scorce Urban Dictionary)

Theres often 5 or more crammed in a truck made for 3 and they go flying up to every stop light and go from 80 to 0 in 50ft and have their loud ass music playing to disrupt us all. One of these guys almost hit my cars...

Add to that the people in Costa Rica who drive around in horribly tuned cars and turning their radios so sound, that you can hear the engine, and that goddamn abomination of music named reggaeton from at least 500 metres away.

You know what's worse about those tuned cars? It's the fact that those are cars that aren't even worth tuning. They are just plain, ordinary Hyundai Excel, Elantra, Toyota Tercel, Corolla, etc. It's not like they're sending a Mercedes down to AMG for proper tuning, or they're collectors of vintage Ferraris, Porsche or Corvettes, we're talking about everyday cars that appear with retrofitted double mufflers, racing tyres (which are sometimes over- or even undersized), rear (and sometimes even front) spoilers, engines that sound like junk, and transmission kickdowns that make you wonder whether the transmission needs replacing.

Just thought of another one.

Yesterday I was behind a cop at a light, (there's two lanes) and to his right was a Dbag in a Civic SI with his GF, windows down, blasting music, neither one of them is paying attention to the light, you get the picture...

Anyways, light switches to green. The cop, for whatever stupid reason, decides to drive at 20mph (the limit is 35mph, which is still ridiculously slow, but not a crawl like 20!  banghead  ) Anyways douchebag mcgee almost passes the cop but I guess he FINALLY realized he was next to a cop, slams his brakes, and now starts formation driving with the cop and now im stuck behind these two knuckleheads driving at speeds slower than a horse carriage. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a car doesn't it?  Yeah sure

One of my biggest pet peeves is that people don't realize ITS OK TO PASS COPS!!! But everybody seems to panic when there's a cop and EVERYBODY suddenly has to follow behind him and nobody passes. It's idiotic. I pass cops on a daily basis. They can't pull you over if a) they're slower than the limit and you're right at it or slightly over or b) they're driving the limit but the flow of traffic is significantly over. In the latter case I've passed cops doing 75 (posted limit) while I'm doing 90ish (flow of traffic was 85). The WORSE that has happened to me is that once or twice after I've passed them they speed up to catch up with me, in which case I get the hint and slow down. But other times they don't care and even if they did they can't do anything about it anyways (provided conditions a and b are met).

I saw a guy fast asleep at the wheel at a traffic light a few weeks ago. At least I thought he was asleep. I suppose he could have been incapacitated in some other way. If I had been alone, I probably would have tried to rouse him, but I had my three-month-old son howling in the back.

If there's one thing I hate, it's that people drive over the stop line during a red light, and then they complain that I don't do the same thing. The problem is that in Costa Rica, the stop lines in front of the traffic lights, are almost below the lights themselves. People here have the nasty habit of creeping a bit forward during a red light (almost to a point where they are either on a pedestrian crossing, or they obstruct the crossing), and once the light goes green, they don't move at all because they're not looking at the lights, or they need 5 minutes to switch to first gear.

Chavs are the most annoying people ever. I stayed with family in London about 10 years ago and I see about 5 guys wearing knock off Reebok track suits with there pants tucked in there crew socks  yuck  and to much jewelry on and stupid nike hats of to the edge also the polo shirts wuth there jackets on. Picking on a 13 year old for something. So I'm 18 at the time, I walk up and find out what the problem is and the kid says that their "Mugging" him. I dont stand for that crap and I tell the Chavs to leave before I kick their asses and they try to act all tall and all I do is flip one of their hats off and they run off scared with thier tails between their legs. There A holes

The main diffrence between "Bros" and "Wiggas" is that Bros like metal music and BMX or Motocross bikes and "Wiggas" like (C) Rap and are usually Upper middle class white kids who got there preppy asses beat once or twice and act like the kids that beat them.
