>Cops never enforce a fucking thing about traffic/DMV/moving laws. You can just do whatever the fuck you want from unsecured loads covering the highway with trash to driving double the speed limit. It is sooo fucking absurd, it is unreal. In 5 years of driving, I've seen maybe 7 traffic stops. Half involved a commercial vehicle.
>Everyone has a shitty American made monster truck that is the size of a medium sized pontoon, and is lifted where you have to have a ladder to climb into it. There is always at least 50-10k dollars of shitty accessories including 3 LED light bars that these faggots operate on highways which is illegal. Bumper heights are always illegal too.
>They all run you off the road if you are going less than 90 anywhere.
>Every faggot and their mother has a shitty wannabe sports car like a Mustang or Camarro.
>They try and cut you off on the interstate when they pass you and nearly hit you to show hod "good" they are at driving. Most of the time, a v6 sedan can block them out from cutting in front of you which is hilarious because their rage is infinite.
>I'll see a Yukon on rims with all the decals ripped off and poorly placed fake/stolen Cadillac/Escalade decals on them.
>Broke niggas with 2 fancy rims on one side of the car and factory rims on the other. lol
>People actually driving around with no exhaust. Just a shitty stock vehicle that is 20+ years old with nothing but exhaust manifold. People take their mufflers off after passing emissions which honestly baffles me.
>Rolling/coasting stops will get you shot.
>Haven't seen spinners in 10+ years.
>People have actually started sign shooting again in some places.

Those are in order from most annoying to least.

In addition, when did the American truck industry decide that a 1/2 ton pickup needs to be the size of the short bus? These fucking things just keep getting bigger and fucking bigger. A 2017 1500 HD Silverado is substantially bigger than the dually I had years ago. I work in a steel yard too so I know these hunks of shit aren't being built more heavy duty or to be loaded harder. The same new 1 ton trucks all squat way faster than my old clapped out 350 from the 80's. These things are on the axle by the time you hit 5000lbs in the bed. It took me 6500-7000 to bottom out and stay on the axle. I guess it is because everybody uses a trailer now and doesn't use the bed for anything. Shit is so stupid.

There was a truck I kept passing again and again and again a while ago. I would pass at 100km/h, merge in and the truck would shoot out and the guy driving would floor it. Then I would pass him at 100km/h, repeat.

A few years ago some asian guy got a flat and decided to just drive back on the flat tire. I guess it was working until the rim splayed out and cut the strut in half.

Another time I was driving in a 50km/h zone and this car was driving very slowly toward me, in my lane. I slowed to a stop and the car kept approaching. Eventually the driver, an asian woman, very gradually shifted her gaze to where she was going. She sees me and very gradually slows to a stop. We just sat there for about 20 seconds, she looking at me with a blank expression and me with a wtf face. Finally she drove into her lane and drove away.

So. Fucking. Stupid. We get that around here in the summer with Harley Durpidsons, amazingly annoying.

Generally shitty to drive anywhere here during the day whether it be on the street or the freeway. GoogleMaps is equivalent to an emergency IV for a dying man. Freeways:
Knowing which direction traffic is flowing and not flowing can help especially since freeways span pretty much the general landscape of the place. At night, driving the freeways can be fun since you can stretch a large span of cool places going pretty fast.
Save driving for the night too. Day driving anywhere in the streets is usually terrible. Highly traffic-lighted places are shitty mainly because the lights are "programmed" but come out being nuisance inhibitors. Places just outside urban areas with windy roads are nice regardless of time of day.... usually

The purpose of merging lanes is that you should be able to get close to the highway speed on them. If you don't you can't drive.

The merge lane is there so you can get up to the speed of the highway. Period. That is the purpose of it by definition. If you don't do it, merging in is dangerous.

man, I came from Miami and had to drive this shit ass mom van across from Cleveland to Akron. I was going 80 on the fucking freeway and had people getting pissed at me and going around my ass even though I'm hitting 10-15 over the speed limit. It starts to rain and its like they go even faster.

That snow gives yall too much confidence on the road, shit is crazy dangerous lol. Florida is the opposite, bunch of idiots who have no idea what to do the second the weather changes. Everyone going 10-15 under because they're illegal immigrants with no license or insurance and always cut you off or almost kill you in some way.

No, but they are supposed to get out the way (and possibly legally required to) in the UK at least. Like, if you got 3 lanes of traffic and you're coming up to a ramp, you just shift to the right ('cos UK so ramp on left) and you leave the slowest lane clear. No fucking around, I see people who are terrible enough to hog the middle lane @ 5 under the limit not be in the way for people merging.

this is a pretty good rule but it's not always obeyed where I live. not an official rule mind you. Usually I'll move over, always for big rigs if I can, the problem is some people merge way slow then swing into the fast lane to speed. or the next merging person is trying to hit the fast lane. and I don't want to be in the fast lane trying to merge back into the slow lane when traffic is merging/changing speed and some ass is now tailgating me.

Oh my fucking god rage. Don't try and fucking merge into a crowded goddamn interstate system at 45 fucking mph. I've been nearly flattened by big rigs for this shit so many times. I have to swing over into the emergency lane or rear end some retard that panics, slams on breaks and stops on a fucking onramp.

I'm gonna start keeping rocks in my car door and throw them at fucktards that do this shit. So much god damn rage it happened yesterday by some fat jolly african-american bitch who was 400lbs and disabled. We should really start taking licenses for mentally ill shitheads.

I live in London and people can't make their mind up about which lane they're driving in. Much to the dismay of basically everyone with respect for the road and the need to get places, cyclists drive on the outside of the road. Motorcyclist ride inbetween lanes going both ways, so that when they get hit it's the real deal and car drivers just sort of hover from lane to lane and get angry when they nearly hit people.

Well, it's because it's impossible to choose the right lane to drive in in London or any big city, especially if you don't live there. You thought you'd be able to turn left from this lane? Nope. Time to try and change lanes last minute while no one's letting you in and a bus is pulling into your lane. Driving in London or any other city is just a mindfuck, you can't really blame the drivers.
