I have several pet peeves with other drivers (I’m sure they have some with the way I drive, but it’s my blog so who cares).
If there is a merge lane, use it. Do NOT stop at the beginning thinking you’re going to be able to generate enough speed to get onto the highway.
If there is a shared turn lane, move into the lane and slow down. Don’t slow down in the main lane of traffic.
Here in the South, drivers are courteous (which is nice compared to the ones in DC), but they are overly courteous. For instance, the other night going home, there was a person waiting to turn out of a shopping center. I was in the right lane behind several cares that were stopped. The left lane was moving just fine. I noticed the person turn out of the shopping center. And thought, someone must’ve let her in because all the cars in front of them were stopped and there’s no place to go. WRONG! The person several cars in front of me had stopped traffic in the main road to let this person in. This goes beyond courteous to dangerous! ARGH!
