I hate when people go out of their way to wave cops forward. You will be at a 4 way stop and one person will try waving a police officer through that was clearly there after everyone. He then waves back at them saying "No, you go". And they continue to wave at him until he goes. You do realize you do not have to wave a police officer through just because he is a cop. Just follow the basic rules of the road and so will he. Unless his lights are on just treat them like another driver. Im sure they hate that **** as much as I do......

But if you go before the cop, you have to go the speed limit. Let him first and you can trail him as he likely will drive 10-15mph over. At least in my area. lol

Last time I was polite and waved a Trooper out in front of me he purposefully got behind me to see my rear plate then pulled me over for no front plate. :(
If I'd have been rude I wouldn't have been out $75. -_-

Cops here always go under the speed liit which backs traffice up because no one will pass them even though the legal speed limit says you can.


I hate when you are on the on ramp to the highway and the jack ass in front of you comes to a complete stop instead of matching highway speed and merging in. I always want to get out and slap them around.

Things people do when driving that piss me off...

There is a left side exit 3-5 miles ahead, so they drive in the left (passing) lane the whole time at 2-3mph under the limit, or right at the limit, because they have to turn left eventually. **** you asshole, drive to the right!

People who can't allow others to pass on the left, and will speed up to match your speed as you pass. Particularly troubling on two lane roads.

Police who enjoy driving 5mph under the limit on the freeway to get a stack of cars behind them who won't pass. Last time I passed I got pulled over for doing 2mph over the limit. Ok officer, but my speedometer was right on the money, you have a 1/4 mile of cars stacked up behind you, and I'm within reasonable mechanical limitations of the vehicle. I remained polite to him and got a warning, but it broke up all the cars stacked up on the road and I got a thumbs up from every single one of them as I passed them further down the road.

Idiots who don't understand not every intersection is a four way stop. Nearly every week some idiot on the boulevard I used to live on would start to drive into me as I drove through the part of the intersection that had no stop signs while they did. And they ALWAYS flip ME off. Why? Is it my fault you don't know there's no stop sign in my direction of travel? Are you blind?

We don't have any roundabouts here yet, but our first one will be completed next fall. I am not looking forward to the idiot drivers here handling that.

People who don't understand turn signals. They tell me you're coming into my lane, giving me a warning. USE THEM!

People who brake on gradual curves on the freeway on clear summer days, while in the winter thinking their 4x4 gives them the magical ability to stop from 60mph in 20 feet.

And finally, people who either park in the middle of an intersection to turn left or ignore the red arrow and turn left anyway, blocking everyone on the other direction of travel from going. Usually two to three cars do this.

Maryland cops take the front plate about as serious as murder. They will hunt you the **** down on the eastern shore. Good thing I'm tagged in Delaware. No repair orders, no hassle over my tint, no tag problems.

Yeah I've figured that out. Stupid laws ruining the sexy front end of my car.
Thing is they don't really care. It's just easy money. Otherwise instead of like 7 warnings for it I'd have fix it tickets.
I drove through Maryland with no front plate in the car going 100+ at times, didn't even get glanced at by a cop


Probably because your rear plate wasn't from Maryland. I doubt they'd enforce another states front plate laws.
