Are you an Angry Driver?

Well, are you? Are you a 'road rage' driver? Are you the reason people shouldn't have guns in cars?

I used to get pretty upset at silly things, cars following to close, guys cutting me off, cars in the HOV lane with only one person in them. I was even chased by a car of mexicans after I flipped them when they cut me off (oh that was a FUN day!) And Lord, how did I survive my youth??

While those things still bother me and probably always will, I've figured out that my road anger was just anger from other parts of my life spilling out during driving.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." – C. S. Lewis

I only get upset at the follow types of drivers

Old People
Soccer Moms

If you are not one of these types of people, then I don't get mad at you...if you are I hope you stay the hell away from when I'm on the road

Old folks going 10 under the speed limit swerving all over the road tend to make me angry. And tailgaters.

For whatever reason, driving is the one area that I do get really mad. People just do such stupid things on the road sometimes But at least I only yell at them from inside my car, I've never flicked anyone off, or deliberately tailed them, or done any other such mean thing to them.
"The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides"

I can get upset at some one but I never do anything stupid like flip them off or tailgate them. For one I am a self proclaimed pacifist and for two I am afraid they will be one of those idiots with a loaded gun in their car. What I DO do however is remember what happened and rant and rave about it later with friends.
Meridae'n once played "death" at a game of chess that lasted for over two years. He finally beat death in a best 34 out of 67 match. At that time he could ask for any one thing and he could wish for the hope of all mankind... he looked death right in the eye and said ...

In New York, you have to be a angry driver. Some drivers go down whole city blocks in reverse just to get a parking spot...

Not much of an angry driver...although I do get pissed off occasionally...I told my mother that the most important skill I'd learned my first year driving was how to honk and flip someone off at the same time. She was appalled and told me I was going to get shot. Well, it's nearly four years later and I haven't been shot yet! I wouldn't, however, be surprised if other drivers got mad at me...I tend to be aggressive, and I drive a large truck with lots of blind spots. Tough combo.

It pisses me off to no end having some asshole moron sitting in the fast lane with their blinker on waiting to make a left turn and what the hell makes the ones that do use the turning lane think they need to slow down to 5 MPFuckingH before they get into it.

aaahhhh ( a few deep breaths) now i feel better. ranting seems to be rather therapeutic (sp?)

I used to be an angry driver, but since I've had kids I have changed my ways. I do revert once in a while, but only when I'm by myself. I've also taught my daughter to say,"Hey LADY!!! It's the one on the right!!!" That kills me when she says it.
It was like that when I got here....I swear.

I spend far too much time in my car (35,000 - 40,000 km/year) to get upset at stupid things. It would cause me far to much stress in an already stressful life. I just try to anticipate the actions of people around me and drive accordingly.

I have my term for it: Offensive Driving.

Without baby on board, I usually go 15-20 over the "speed limit". I don't need a FuzzBuster, I have female intuition, big breasts, and the ability to cry at will.

I slow down to ambient traffic speeds with Hellion in the car.

If you are passing as many as are passing you, you are going the safest speed possible, regardless of the speed limit. If ambient traffic is going 77 and you're driving 65 you are as hazardous as the nut going 91; drop to 60 and you're as dangerous as if you were going 99.

If you think conditions are too hazardous for you to drive in, get off my road.

My remedy for backseat drivers is a roll of duct tape sitting in my glove box. They have to put it over their mouth before they can comment on my driving.

I generally don't get pissed at other drivers. It just annoys me when I see someone with a nice car with turbo driving 10 miles under the speed limit on a 2 lane highway on a beautiful sunny day with almost no traffic. Of course it always happens in the no passing zones, too...
I'd rather be climbing...

I think it was Sienfeld who said, "You ever notice how it is that people who drive slower than you are idiots and those who drive faster than you are maniacs?"

I'm amazed at all the angry drivers out there. Why are we so angry, people?

although I am not a violent driver.
All the stupid things other drivers continually do just get to me. Especially when I have to act to avoid them.

Recently I have been trying to calm down, but it only works for me until someone does something particularly stupid. Especially when it is snowing outside and everyone is driving too fast and losing control.

I am getting better though, and I have started apologizing to whomever is my passenger if I lose my temper, and that seems to help too.

I'm really not an aggressive driver, but i HATE it in others. You cut me up deliberately 'cos you feel like a king in you kraut-mobile; i'll follow you 'til you stop and then take the fight to the ground. And have done.

The thing that gets me is that twats in cars feel inviolate, and i like to get them and demonstrate otherwise.

Sometimes I get angry, but I am working on it. When people follow too close, I pull off the the side of the road and let them pass. That really messes with their minds and they usually drive about 10mph under the speed limit for a couple of miles.

One thing that really pisses me off is slow drivers.... especially the assholes that drive 55 in the fast lane right next to the car in the slow lane doing 54. And when you're at a stop light in the left turn lane and the light turns green, but the Ass in front of you lets everyone go so there's a two car gap before he/she takes off.... then the sensor picks up the gap and the light turns red right as said Ass makes it through and you get stuck at the light. Another thing is when you're merging onto the freeway from the onramp and no one will yield and let you merge until you run out of onramp and are about to run into them.... That happened to me a few days ago, I was getting on the freeway and as I was driving along the onramp this woman in a POS minivan decided she wasn't going to slow down and let me merge..... so we drive side by side until there is no more onramp so I just merge anyway.... she hits her brakes and then gets in the fast lane and comes up beside me and starts yelling at me in arab or something... so I just flip her off and call her a stupid Biatch.... Farking Foreigners are the worst drivers....
