I think we can all agree that everyone in B.C is a horrible driver.

Not me.

Had someone in front of me come to a complete stop on a freeway on ramp. Thought for sure I was going to get smashed into, scared the **** out of me. There was a 2km merge lane, have no idea what the persons problem was.

Dear every driver, if you want to go 10 under the speed limit and have multiple cars behind you, pull over and let them by.

Dear Drivers in London England

When you are the 30th car in a traffic jam and you honk your horn--the car that is causing it can not hear you

Speaking of dents, someone opened their door onto my car so damn hard that it left a dent almost half an inch deep in my c pillar. And I drive a mark 4 jetta, not a rice box made of tin foil, so that c pillar is pretty damn thick. I'm sure the heavy winds were involved, but I swear if I ever catch one of these ratbastards walking from my car after leaving a dent their car will need a new paint job.

...and that includes you hitman9172!!!

If 2 lanes merge into 1, everyone must understand the zipper effect

And that getting ahead of a car and ****ing up the zipper will gain the moron only about half a second when the traffic gets back up to speed.

And if I see you try to mess up the zipper or sneak in front of me when there is ample room to merge in behind me? I will ride so close to the car in front of me til you are off the road or sit back and go to your rightful place in line

I thought when I moved from SoCal out here, my driving skills were quickly eroding. Got in my first accident, got a ticket because I tried to beat a yellow because some guy was riding my ass so close he would've hit me if I stopped. Then as I accelerate to make it, guy behind me throws on the brakes. The Hampton Roads area has the worst drivers I've ever seen. Just a collection of people with no regard for the unwritten rules of driving. Forget zippering, people just sit in your blind spot. All day. They pass you even when you're doing 65 in a 55, I even saw two people go on to the shoulder in the emergency pull off lane to pass steadily moving traffic so they could save two seconds.

We have this problem in Winnipeg. Its infuriating.

We also have about 1100 additional problems with the bulk of the morons driving in this town.

This is very hard to pull off because it leaves a gap behind your car for the moron to merge. What I like doing is driving on the line the longest time possible when I'm merging. This way I have my spot secured in the left and I'm blocking the cheaters trying to speed past me and the 6 other cars in front of me on the right.

I like when people are already merging and then put on the signal.

That is smart.

Please stop sending me so many "Dear Driver" letters. My mind is about to explode. Back to driving now.

I don't mean to be racist, but I've seen far too many Asian drivers involved in accidents in good old Vancouver. At the same time, it's probably because there are a lot of corrupt Asian driving instructors who get paid off to pass Asian driving students.
