Live in a new place? hate something about it... please share /driving pet peeves

So, this is a new thread (altho I suspect its been done before) to voice your pet peeves.
i was inspired to post this on my way home today. Im originally from houston (a decent size city), but Im going to school in Austin, and, I absolutely hate austin drivers.
my pet peeves:
-Austin drivers with purposely speed up to keep you from changing lanes after you put your blinker on... as if they are racing at all times.
-Austin city planners or whatever, made the most ridiculously idiotic road system known to man. For instance, you can miss an exit, and have to drive 2 more miles before you can u-turn it, only to have to wait at 2 lights because they cant make real u-turns.


this thread is for those people who need to rant, so please, join me

btw*** I edited this and changed the subject from driving pet peeves to the above, cause its an old topic

Re: driving pet peeves

People not using blinkers
People basically stopping before making a right turn
People driving compact cars swining out wide to the left when making a right hand turn as if they were an 18 wheeler
OLD PEOPLE

Ice. Especially around corners. And cement curbs. And plastic bumpers.

I live in a college town and the first few weeks of school is just downright scary to drive. Most of the time its girls in SUVs who just have no idea how to drive.

One time I even saw a Jeep flipped over in front of one the dorms. How the hell do you manage that?

Not using blinkers
Not doing the speed limit
People that do something wrong and almost hit you and they flip you off
