American motorists SUCK
I have lived in Germany for 7 years and OH, how I miss the autobahn...
Many Americans have no idea what they are doing on the road. Things that piss me off:
Most have no idea what hazard lights are for... I could count on one hand how many times I've seen an American motorist use his/her hazards to signal an accident ahead (as a courtesy to drivers behind you), or use their hazards when their vehicle breaks down on the side of the road... speaking of which, pull off to the right side of the road if at all possible, retard..
No turn signals... even when it is courteous and downright essential to signal your intentions, Americans are too lazy to reach for the signal stalk. If you're driving down I-30 in the middle of Texas and there isn't another vehicle until New Mexico, fine, splurge a little. But come on, if you have vehicles around you, waiting on you, or behind you, let them know what twisted little decisions you are about to make.
Consider stopping to help if there is an accident. Especially if someone could be hurt. Thanks hero.
Get over to the left lane (when possible) if a police officer makes a traffic stop, or a vehicle is broke down...
Turn your lights on when it is STARTING to get dark, or when you are using your windshield wipers ... and parking lights are for parked vehicles
Buckle your kids up broad!
Driving while text messaging and chatting on the cell phone... use your head.... set.
And of course, hovering in the passing lane... what the hell is so degrading about getting back in the right lane after you have finished passing? Some backwoods retard here in Arkansas even proceeded to give me the finger (in front of his wife and kids packed into their minivan) because I flashed my headlights, signalling my deisire to pass.
I'm sure there are others. I reserve the right to bitch about my fellow countryman further should I think of other atrocities taking place on our roads. I don't care if this has been covered before. I'm covering it again. That is all.
If you can think of other offenses, please share...
