This, especially in construction. For about 8 months, they've been doing repairs on the big bridge that goes over the Milwaukee harbor. Nearly everyone knows that the on-ramp to the bridge has been moved and that there is now a very short space in which to merge, and there are plenty of signs, yet some dimwits just cruise along not getting out of the way of merging traffic.

The other thing that drives me NUTS are when people wait, and wait, and wait for someone to back out of a parking spot. Sure, if you're driving through a parking lot and you see tail lights/backup lights come on, stop and take that spot. But I want to throttle the people who see someone walking through the lot and then hit their brakes to see where that person is going, then wait for that person to get to their car, put their crap in the trunk, get into the car, etc., all to grab the parking spot. Meanwhile, a half dozen cars are backed up behind that nimrod.

lol! the best.

i have to admit - sometimes I am that guy. i have no idea why that is. I think it's mainly the inability to see around you.

For the record, you guys named almost everything that pisses me off while I drive. I'm sure there is at least one more.

People who drive faster than the speed limit. What makes them think that they are so important that they have to increase risk to my life and limb. How come the idiots cannot leave 2 minutes earlier?

Most of the things already mentioned tick me off. One of my personal favorites usually happens when I’m making a right turn, sometimes after a stop, sometimes at a green light. Often times, I will find that there is a pedestrian crossing legally at the intersection. So, what do I do? I wait. That’s when the d-bag behind me starts laying into his or her horn. Oh, sorry about that, am I making you late for your hair appointment?!!??! Let me just go ahead and mow this person down then, I’m sure they won’t mind!!!

The interstate from the vast western Milwaukee suburbs exits into downtown via Van Buren St. That street is four lanes, one way, from the highway to the center of downtown.

From 7:00 am to 9:00 am, there is no parking on Van Buren because EVERYONE from the western suburbs needs to exit the highway onto that street and we need all four lanes to accommodate the huge volume of traffic.

That, however, doesn't stop oblivious idiots from parking there during the morning rush hour and completely f'ing up the traffic flow for blocks.

Nope, not me. I hate those guys too. I've been out here for 21 years. I quit needing to be in a hurry about 20 years ago. Lot of newer, younger drivers out there giving guys like me a bad rep.
