    My great aunt; she always slightly passes the line you're supposed to stop at, takes risky left turns, fails to signal the odd time, and has jerky breaking. In the meantime she's constantly complaining about people making goofs similar to her's while driving. I can't blame her though due to her old age and I'm glad she's able to do such as it really helps out the family. My mother also fails here and there. She also has jerky breaking and along with failing to signal the odd time. Although she stops before the line, she rarely leaves any room.

    Ironically, I'm grateful for this as I got my license suspended due to my epilepsy (which is now under control thanks to an increase in my medication). Constantly catching their mistakes reminds me of what I'm not supposed to do when I'm allowed back on the road.

    Anyone ever watch Canada's Worst Driver?

    Sadly I fear I may be a bad driver. My learning to drive was interrupted by Uni but I haven't been able to work up the courage to continue again since I feel so bad at it. My instructor is constantly yelling at me for not going fast enough or reacting fast enough or seeing things on roundabouts.

    Even when I'm on a bike I tend to have way to many close calls.

    All this and more on my tumblr!

    well, you don't really park on the roads so those guys are annoying but not dangerous. for me the worst thing someone can do is not indicate when merging or when on a roundabout

    My mother constantly misses red lights and she is paranoid about crashing while parking, that I have get out of the car, go on the sidewalk and shout "YOUR GOOD! YOUR GOOD!" when she is doing right.

    I live in Arizona, we're pretty much full of terrible drivers because of the snowbirds, which my grandfather always shouts at when he gets the chance. It scares me, honestly, and one of the reasons why I haven't practiced my driving in a long while (next to college work and coming home at a later time, of course). I always get nervous whenever some idiot starts hopping lanes.

    I have too many memories of bad drivers going on through my hand, so I'll just say one of the funniest ones I've seen was some guy had a pick-up truck with a tarp over it, only it wasn't really tied down correctly. I don't know what he was carrying back there or what for, but we were on the freeway when all of a sudden a bunch of these newspapers and magazine papers just fly out of the back of his truck, and didn't stop until after a few miles had passed. And of course, by the time the guy pulled over, I think all of the paper was gone. It was insane.

    I am a terrible driver. It took me three times to pass the road test. And I failed them all for stupid stuff to. Like the first time we were coming out of the parking lot right at the start of the test and I went past the stop sign and the lady told me to just turn around back into the parking lot cause I failed lol.

    When I took my test, the place was so empty and the officer looked bored as ****, and the place wasn't going to be testing for another couple of hours but she said let's go. She had me drive less than a mile lol. Went straight, took a left, took a right, and then went back. We were gone for only about 7 minutes.

    Driving test officers are basically paid to make your life miserable and intimidate the **** out of you. Happens to everyone. I got yelled at by mine after I was told "you passed BUT," to which my actual instructor sitting in the back seat was shocked. (I was one of his success stories, incidentally.)

    My biggest peeves on the road are 1) not using blinkers, 2) not looking before changing lanes, 3) impatience. The last one because I am practically the opposite of someone who gets afflicted by road rage -- I get angry that people get angry, if that makes any sense. Like, seriously, one extra fraction of a second spent waiting for someone to turn or yielding/stopping where they're goddamn supposed to isn't going to kill you.

    My bad luck always causes the slowest granny to ALWAYS be driving in front of me, and the jackass who wants to tear up my car behind me.

    One time I saw someone reading a novel while driving on the freeway. And those people are the reason why I am scared to drive.

    I've seen a girl texting while driving before, with a baby in the vehicle.

    I'm a terrible driver, so I have no room to talk .

    However, I will say that I get angry at slow drivers. And I don't mean drivers who are going 29 in a 35, I mean drivers who go 20 in a thirty five.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    I used to fear driving, to the point where I put off drivers training until I was 16. So the majority of my class were driving before me. I didn't get my license until I was 18.
    Commuting to college means I had to suck it up and get used to it, and now I'm comfortable with it. Which brings me to what made me fear it in the first place; terrible drivers.
    Those people who tailgate even when you're going five over (every.single.day.). Jerks who pull out in front of you and don't even bother trying to speed up, so you have to let up on the gas and/or hit the brakes.

    It only irks me when it's a sudden turn, or when it's the sort of thing where it'd be REALLY nice to know what the hell the person in front of you is doing, you know? And on top of that, people also need to learn that using blinkers to change lanes on a highway is not an immediate pass to actually do it without looking. I nearly had someone smash into me from the side trying to do that once. :|

    People who put their turn signal on while switching lanes then don't turn it off because they forget and their music is too loud for them to know!
    I've literally drove 30 miles before the guy realized it was still on...

    Twice in one week I had cars pull out from driveways while I was going past, both times I had to move across to the other side of the road so their wouldn't be a collision

    Oh I forgot to mention the people who leave their turn signals on for over a mile. Saw that yesterday.

    Hate that. And people who park too close to the yellow or white lines in a parking lot and then proceed to open their car door and hit your car -_-.

    One of the worst experiences I went through was when a semi truck nearly drove a friend and I off the road while trying to get onto the free way. The person shouldn't have had a driver's license, let alone a truck driver's license.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
