I was reading an article about what annoys drivers the most when driving. Here's the link: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/254899.php
Road rage stories!
I'll tell the only time I got so mad that I retaliated a little.
I was driving home from work and it was around 10:00pm, so there weren't many cars out. Somehow in a 30 second window, two cars almost crash into me because they have a death wish and give no indication that they NEED to get over into the lane I'm in. Instead of giving me some sign, they cut over within a foot or so of hitting me. With the second car, I pulled up very close behind them while we were at a red light, so that my lights were shining in their face.
I know, terrible. But I was so annoyed. It was right after I'd been hit by a car as a pedestrian (I had the right of way and he was turning a corner), so my nerves were already rattled. I understand not wanting to be pulled off into oblivion by a turning lane, but if you give me NO sign that you want to get over, I'm going to assume you're turning. Why wouldn't I? Plus, because of how late it is, there's usually no one behind me. They could just drive slowly and pull in behind me. They don't though.
It happens so regularly, I just gun it now in certain spots.
If you can't tell, I'm a pretty mellow driver. That's the best I've got. What about you guys?
