Title: Douchebag season has begun
Post by: Ambystom01 on May 29, 2012, 01:47:35 PM
I know the STI stands out and attracts attention but I had 3 different people try to race me/crash into me yesterday.

The first was some old (late 90s) truck with custom green paint that took off like a bat out of hell from a light as soon as it went green, and then threw the shocker symbol out the window. We were driving to another red light.

The second was an RSX that redlined their engine in neutral as they went by me in the opposite direction. I was stopped at a red light at the time.

The final specimen was a neon that almost took my front end off as he tried to dart in front of me to avoid a slower moving vehicle in his lane. To his credit, he did shoulder check, when he was already in the lane. The pass was so close, I'd be pissed if I was in a chumpcar. The d-bag promptly got stuck behind some other cars.

I noticed that since I took the STI out for the summer, that the odd time I drive it to work no one lets me in when merging or needing to change lanes during rush hour.

When I drive the blandmobile wagon, I never have a problem, it's like my big wing and meaty stance just look like a giant v-sign to other drivers...

V-sign, victory? I've noticed the same thing. People will move to block me in the STI while in the Miata, they give lots of space.

I'm sick of these dudes too. Pull up to light the other day and across from me sits a Sunfire with mad decals bro and probably a fart can axle back with matching blue lights and Canadian tire fender scoops.
He was at his light first, as I pull up he instantly changes his driving position to 'Layyyyd back' then proceeds to rev the isspay out of it.
I'm now laughing my assay off and continue to as he drops it back into drive and peels out staring at me like a badass.
You sir are a piece of uckfay, stfu and get out of my sight.
I'm sure he wanted me to turn around and race or something.

Also keep running into a 780 tuners loser(i know cos he has sweet stickers yo)in a Caliber who I occasionally see in St Albert. Every time this uckfayer spots me he's instantly weaving through traffic to catch up or reving at a light.
You can see I have a child in the back seat you piece of itshay, just because my wheels are green doesn't mean I'm down with endangering other motorists.

Dam it Amby, ya got me wound up over these douches again!

Last night. Cobalt SS on 16th Ave.

Nobody was impressed when you cutoff multiple cars so you could sit next to me at a light. I could not see you through your heavily tinted windows, but I bet you were really happy with yourself when you revved your engine and took off. Its too bad I dont street race or I could have kept you company when that cop pulled you over for speeding.

I hope he saw the whole thing.

Just yesterday I was at the lights on country hills at the 7-11 and some assay clown in a 19...pos..something neon pulled up next to me did the whole lean back, window down, rev the itshay out of his car.  Now the real amusing part is once the light turned green I was about 1 to 1 1/2 car lengths ahead of him driving normally or even slower then normal since I am still in the break in period of the car and sitting around 1335kms only.  Then he caught up to me at the country hills/shag intersection and screamed something dropped his clutch jerked his car almost stalled it then attempted to take off like a boss as I just had the :o on my face the whole time.

Hey man is that caliber black with tint and you can just see the outline of the person driving and his pillar pod? Guy tired raving me on hwy 2 out of st a he ' let me ' catch up to him by slowing down while I was in the fast lane and then proceeded to match speed rev up slow down rev up slow down match speed for 2 minutes then romp on it. The wife and I just laughed he didn't even look over once, if your going to start something atleast look at the person cause it just looks like your toying with yourself

fortunatly the ol 2006 looks mostly stock on the outside.  gets slightly less attention...  but that said, i still am constantly rev'ed at and people tail me/try to race me.   Tempted to make a sign with the date and location of the next autocross that says.  "meet me there, we can settle this on the track."    Getting pretty sick of it.  Also.  I have no love for 780 tuners.

Yesterday while at a light some guy in a raised Ford truck (Older year) with tinted windows and such covered in those Skull, I believe "Metal Mulisha" brand stickers -
Rolls up next to me at the red, I had all 4 of my window's down. He glared over, I had sunglasses on but he stared for a good 5 seconds before he literally - I actually
looked back at his rear tires in disbelief, starts spinning out / burning rubber / dropping smoke right on Sarcee over the Stoney bridge (4way intersection - long light)

I kinda laughed, I've never seen someone seriously doing something like that except for in movies LOL.
Light went green and to my surprise he slowly - (I was expecting him to tear off cut 3 lanes and merge off to Stoney South) crawled in behind me - signaled and went over.

Was so confused, I had the dash-cam on and everything waiting for some oucheday-baggery.

Had some Guido in an 06? Lancer swerving in and out of traffic coming to the henday from leduc on hwy 2. I'm in the fast lane doing 120ish and managed to get ahead of his douchebaggery attracting him to switch to my lane... But he switched so fast to the point of slip streaming do without hesitation of how much I love my car I reefed on my brembos while he put his head down causing him to freak out and swerve. He came up on my driver add doing Mach 1 after and started giving me a death stare so I rolled down my window and put my fingers and inch apart yelling watch your bumper sholeasay as he proceeds to yell some blubberish I can't understand. 10 seconds later I say uckfay you and roll my window as I think I'm not going to bicker with some idiot. He then speeds up and swerves at me as he takes off I just laugh my assay off.


This guy drives an 06ish gunmetal lancer with an evo wing 3 pod pillar and as far as I know carbon wrapped interior and gas cover. Laugh at this uckyfay tool of you see him please.

Its not your job to police people for their actions toward others.

Despite the fact that he was driving right behind you and jeopardizing your safety doesn't justify you sinking to the same level, on a road with other people especially.

That said, I can't say I haven't acted in a similar fasion before; I just know better than to come here and brag about it.

I'm with you. No one on here are perfect drivers, no matter how many times they follow a post like this frowning upon how a person handled a situation. In some cases, the person who thinks they are the safest driver is actually one of the worst. People are so quick to jump on you for your actions. Truth is, they, at some point have messed up behind the wheel. BUT, don't dare post it because it will screw with their perfect driving capabilities they have the forum perceive. Don't you dare tell a story about pulling a guy at a light or from a roll. You will be shunned. But, you have all done it. Don't talk about it. If you have never got on it beside another vehicle or on a lonely road by yourself late at night, you are either lieing or are not enjoying the driving experience of your vehicle. Go buy a Prius and screw a 2x4 under your gas pedal.

This thread is about the stupid itshay you see on the road, ideally caused by people jizzing their pants over seeing a Subaru. If someone wants to start a thread to defend street racing/vehicular masturbation, they can. If they want to start a thread itchbaying and moaning about forum policy/atmosphere, they can.

When I drive the blandmobile wagon, I never have a problem, it's like my big wing and meaty stance just look like a giant v-sign to other drivers...

Hahaha ya that's why if I know I'm going to be stuck in rush hour I'm either in my work truck already or I'll drive my other play truck, I signal with as much notice/space as possible, make my lane change and whatever happens happens. I had a shiny new Chevy pickup try to pass me on the right on Bow Trail, seen him barreling up on me I swear I had a good 200 ft the moment I signaled I could see him moving up faster, I proceeded into my lane change, his lane was running out and it was either me or the wall at that point, took this superstar to be almost side by side with a truck twice as big and fully loaded to realize that he might wanna hit the brakes... I have no problem making someone crash in such situations.

OK here's one that was both amusing and terrifying at the same time. I wasn't in the STI at the time. A friend and I were driving on Stoney on our way to Bass Pro Shop. A woman in a minivan decided she was in such a rush she would weave between lanes. When that didn't get her ahead of traffic, she used a merge lane as a passing lane. I really hope her house was on fire and she wasn't just driving like a oucheday for no reason.

I've seen this so many times, I'll never get it. Crossing the solid into a merge and ripping ahead in the merge.
Frustrating is I'll get a speeding ticket with no other cars around, coasting downhill and just manage to let it slip not watching the speedo and go 10km over pay $120.
But there will never ever be a cop around the corner when people do this.

TWO LANES, seperated by a SOLID YELLOW LINE you sholeasay.

This isn't HIGHWAY 63, and even if it is, it's uckfaying ILLEGAL.  You risked the getting the old couple in the Suzuki killed coming the other way and nearly ran me into the curb.

How hard is it to uckfaying stop before the white lines for a crosswalk? The last couple days I've been going to work I've been seeing a Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey half into every crosswalk, even on left hand turn lanes (where you really don't wanna stick out).

I drive a tractor trailer.... When I have to turn on to tiny roads and joe douch in his BMW is so far over the line his back wheels are touching it. I make the turn anyways and if I don't have room I lay on the air horn until he moves, or throw on my air brakes (if there's no one else around) and just sit there blocking him until he figures it out

I saw this tremendous Lexus IS250 today. It's slammed all the way to the balls so the first time I see it, it's bouncing from crack to crack in the road like it has no suspension travel at all. There are two ridiculous fart cans in the bumper, which probably required a Dremel to fit because the paint around the fart cans is cracked and the bumper itself is cracked. Only one of the exhausts is choked with carbon.

It shoots off, doing probably 70+ in a 50 in my residential neighborhood, then proceeds to do at least 60 through the active school zone and inactive playground zone on the way out of the neighborhood. I catch up to him to turn onto Country Hills (speed limit 80) where he crawls out into the intersection, turns super wide to the left, brakes hard at the apex, then jerks the wheel over like he's correcting a stuck door. Then he proceeds to do 60-65 in the left lane until he sees the "60 ahead" sign.

At this point he dumps it, and skitters away into the left turn lane to turn onto Shag, where he again repeats his inability to accurately turn left and does 70 up the left lane of the hill before getting cut off by a Venture and deciding to solve the problem by going 90 right on their assay for a short period before again doing 70+ through the 50kph construction zone.

If you speed, at least speed consistently, people, or at least save it for not-construction and not-school zones.

I had a pretty nice one on Macleod last night. I was first in line at a light in the middle lane, then left the light, accelerated semi-sharply to 60kph (the legal limit) and then stayed there cruising along.

After about a block this guy in a Charger Daytona decides to pass me on the left and hammer it, at which point he just gets stuck in the same traffic ahead of me. He angrily weaves around in his lane and occasionally drives over the line between lanes for short periods of time (probably one-hand driving).

Eventually outside Chinook I change over to the left lane myself (so I can turn over to Centaur and check out their BRZ) and he proceeds to get stuck at every red light with me directly behind him.

Every time the light turns green he speeds off at about 80kph and gets caught at the next red light and I catch up to him a few seconds later, driving calmly at the limit like an adult human and not hitting boost.

On the red light at 39th Ave he decides that he's had enough of me catching up to him and buries the throttle when it turns green, emitting a sad chirp from both rear tires (traction control?) and pointing the Charger firmly towards the curb on the near side of the intersection. After he slams on his brakes and straightens it out, he proceeds to drive off at the speed limit and get into the left hand turn lane of Mission Rd, where I pull in right behind him.

Then he misses the green turn signal light for 30 seconds because he was on his cellphone. I wonder what honking would have gotten him to do?

Coming home from soccer on friday night, car full of people. Windows are down so it doesn't smell like sweaty gym bag. As we pull up to the light at Peigan/Barlow before heading North on Deerfoot, Im first in line. Next to me is a giant lifted 3500 diesel. Can hear the bass rattling his truck apart but as we're sitting at the light and the advanced left goes, I hear him start to spool his turbo up. I look left and, oh itshay, his 6" exhaust is pointed right at my window.

I hit those window switches as fast as I could but didn't make it in time. Stupid prick layed coal right into my still open window and then proceeded to tear off the line, slowly. When he sees Im not racing him, he slows up and waits for me to catch him normally, then takes off again.

When you're still out of breath and breathing hard from a soccer game, the best thing is to breath in heavy diesel smoke.

Thats actually one of my biggest pet peeves. I can understand tuning a diesel truck for more power and everything cause you can get some pretty crazy house pulling power out of them. But my problem is with smoker tunes. I cant even understand why a company would produce smoker tunes that deliberately add more fuel than it needs to just to get big clouds of black smoke. I think companies should be banned from producing such tunes. Im always worried im gonna pull up beside one with my window open and get a vehicle full of diesel fumes.

The only consolation i had was a couple months ago on the henday when i was just cruising and a big diesel comes up beside me trying to get me to race. I know all too well how often they like to set up radar traps on the henday (luckily not from getting pulled over) and wouldnt take the bait so he hammers the gas, big cloud of smoke right to the radar trap about 1km ahead. I gave him a polite wave as he was getting pulled over.

Then proceed to  pull out in front of me, going just faster than me; fine what evers. And then! Semi.

I think I'll be fine, the police refused to press charges after two intoxicated red necks attempted to mug my dad and I a few years back, my vehicle had broke down and my dad came to help, as a truck pulled in behind us two males began to verbally abuse myself, my dad and my girlfriend to the point they got out and tried to assault us.

my dad hurt his shoulder after having it dislocated from the assault, had the socket crack along with torn tendons and muscles. he has undergone many surgeries but lives with pain daily, I walked away with a broken nose and many cuts, would the police press charges? nope. refused too.

the light of the situation was having the three of walked away. We did however (in self defense) send the two assailants to the hospital, one with minor injuries from my father laying a flurry of punches before the initial assailant tried to jerzy him having him slip on ice, the assailant then received a kick to the groin with a steel toed boot. then stopped. the second assailant who attacked me went to the hospital with broken ribs, broken nose, broken jaw, broken knee and his front teeth scattered on the concrete. he spent the night in the ICU, I defended myself until the assault stopped.

you can either defend yourself and the ones you care about, or fall victim to idiocy. you wont agree with me but that's alright, I felt like sharing a story. if I didn't defend myself, my father and my girlfriend. the result could have been FAR worse and severe.

That is vastly different from what you talked about before. I agree completely with what you did in your situation. You were assaulted first, and responded as any reasonable person would. However, that is not the same as this:

am i the only one who would follow the prick, pull him out of his truck and smash his face off the concrete for doing this?  :-\

In the above, you would be the aggressor. People do dickish things all the time on the roads, whether it's cutting in line, going when it's not their turn at an intersection, tailgating or blowing smoke at you with their diesel. If you followed this person, removed them forcibly from their vehicle and then physically assaulted them, you wouldn't have much of a defense for your actions, unlike your story where self-defense was rather obvious. If you actually did this, I suspect you'd find yourself before a judge pretty quickly, as I initially said. Someone blowing smoke at you is a whole lot different than two drunken hillbillies picking a fight with you.

Anyways, let's keep this on the topic of d-bag drivers, not self-defense or protecting your ego.

RedndWhite, that crap happens all the time on highway 1 and 22. It feels like every day someone will be going 20 under the speed limit on 22, until they're passed at which point it's the Indy 500 and they'll ride your assay when you're going 10 over the limit.

for no exact reason, I wonder what you make of another situation of mine. in all honesty for curiosity's sake.

as I was riding my bike home with my girlfriend a male teenager thought it would be funny to swerve at me on glenmore, half coming into my lane forcing me onto the shoulder (if I lacked experience, he would half clipped us knocking us off the bike), while he laughed and sped away I followed. as we stopped at a red light I got off my bike and proceed to walk to his window, he continued to laugh as I questioned his mentality, he then replied 'uckfay you buddy', his smile left his face as I punched him in the eye.

the way I see it is he threatened not only my life, but the life on my girlfriend. all for the sake of humor.

I suspect that would count as assault on your part, and possibly his, among some driving offenses.

Self-defense would likely not apply as you were not defending yourself; any assault or threat on his part had already happened. Simply threatening someone is not enough for self-defense, it has to be a real and present threat. If someone says "I'm going to go home, get my bat, come back, and knock your uckfaying teeth in", you can't knock them out because the risk to you is not immediate. Here, you could ride away. Additionally, physical force was not necessary to "stop" the assault on his part. You simply punched him in the eye after the fact because you were angry. Anger is not a defense.

He could potentially be found to have assaulted you since it could be said that he made you apprehensive about potential harm; it was the equivalent of someone throwing a punch at you but missing. For this to apply though, you'd have to show he intended to do it; assault cannot happen by accident at least in a criminal sense. He may have swerved for some other reason and you simply assumed it was about you. There is precedent for this kind of vehicular behaviour qualifying as assault along the grounds I already mentioned. In that specific case, a person sped up to try to block someone from re-entering a lane when passing.

In short, I think both of you likely broke the law in some way.

as I was riding my bike home with my girlfriend a male teenager thought it would be funny to swerve at me on glenmore, half coming into my lane forcing me onto the shoulder (if I lacked experience, he would half clipped us knocking us off the bike), while he laughed and sped away I followed. as we stopped at a red light I got off my bike and proceed to walk to his window, he continued to laugh as I questioned his mentality, he then replied 'uckfay you buddy', his smile left his face as I punched him in the eye.

the way I see it is he threatened not only my life, but the life on my girlfriend. all for the sake of humor.
that would be assault. As Amby said you were not defending your self. In Canada we have a duty to retreat before defending our selves. So in this case you could have prevented further issues by simply staying on your bike. Now if he jumped out of his car and came at you. You would still be possibly found guilty because you could easily leave.

Self defence in Canada is the last option you must take all reasonable outs before you take action.

see, I've spoken with multiple police officers and all of them had said; 'if you feel as if your life has been threatened, you have the right to defend yourself'

and I'm not saying this for justification, I'm saying this so people may be informed. it's helped me in some hairy situations.

it's always been quoted as 'fight or flight', never 'run the uckfay away' you have the option.... I'd imagine running wouldn't be some people's forte when being verbally/physically assaulted.

Believe what you want but when was the lady time you were trained on self defence and use of force? When was the last time you read the section in the criminal code pertaining to it?
You will be judged based on what a reasonable person would have done. So would it be reasonable to run? Then yes run the uckfay away.

 
it's always been quoted as 'fight or flight', never 'run the uckfay away' you have the option.... I'd imagine running wouldn't be some people's forte when being verbally/physically assaulted.

If you are backed into a corner it would not be reasonable to run. Sitting on a bike very easy just to walk away.

and I'm not saying this for justification, I'm saying this so people may be informed. it's helped me in some hairy situations.

And they're correct, based on s. 34 of the CC, if you have a reasonable belief that your life is threatened, you can respond, even going so far as to you use lethal force if it is reasonable to do so. In your situation, however, your life was not presently threatened, it was, at most, previously threatened. You cannot argue self-defense if you're not actually defending yourself. You simply punched someone in the eye because he had previously scared you and you were now angry. That's not self-defense. Would it be legal to go home, get your bat, come back and then beat him to a bloody pulp?

it's always been quoted as 'fight or flight', never 'run the uckfay away' you have the option.... I'd imagine running wouldn't be some people's forte when being verbally/physically assaulted.

You don't have the option. Self-defense is not an option among many, it is a last resort defense. The law doesn't care what you personally believe is right, it cares what is reasonable to do. If you have an easy out, you are expected to take it.

Turquoise Maxima is in front of me on Beddington (80kph in the segment I'm going in) doing about 50-60 with his four way flashers on. Once I get closer I notice why - his left rear wheel is wobbling repeatedly like he just got a shunt in an accident or maybe only has two lugnuts left.

He decides to turn and drive into my community, and I follow him because I can't pass safely on the single lane road. The fact that he has a wheel actively falling off doesn't keep him from speeding through the active playground zone.  :o

Quite well actually. Canada is one of the safest countries in the world. Non-violent offenders are still offenders and even murderers and rapists have rights.

In a perfect world, they would lose all of their rights when they choose to murder/rape someone.

Theres good's and bad's about our system, I personally believe its a little too relaxed and comfortable for people getting locked up. When i worked in retail we had plenty of people arrested for shoplifting and stuff. After talking to the cops a lot of the people were fine getting caught cause it meant free meals and a place to stay. I think they need to harshen up things for offenders, and give some of the money from that to programs and places to stay for the homeless.

That's good news; it's not only obnoxious but plainly dangerous. I'm surprised the Alberta government is the one enforcing emissions compliance as opposed to the feds. Maybe next they'll actually enforce the mudflap laws.

Rolling coal is very controllable by the driver. My truck can roll coal if I want it to. Locked up I can black out Nose Hill Drive bottom to top if I want, but I am proud to say that I do not purposely drive around looking to smoke people out.

Last night while driving to Husky for the routine Thursday night fill up (I got 320km this tank on 94?!!! woohoo!)
I encountered more douchebaggery than I had ever encountered prior in my life.

I seriously found myself in the middle of about 4 cars, each car with a male driver and female passenger. We had a chevy cobalt, some other chevy "suv" similar to a cobalt, a
old accord and a white neon. I literally was stuck in the middle of their itshay-storm mess. Words cannot explain. All that can be said, is I'm glad I was turning off Country Hills, and as I turned off
I watched the 4 of them, literally it looked like sychronized dancing, continue to weave in and out ahead of me.

Just then as I watched, 2 more oucheday's, not ONE but TWO Mustang's RIPPED past me in the turning lane, one silver and one baby blue, to meet up with the brake lights of every not even 50 meters ahead.

That's one of the reasons I got myself a go pro camera for the dash.   

Usually I own fairly un-quick cars, (Bronco II, Grand Am, AMC Eagle, and now the Subaru Legacy 2.5i) but regardless of what I own, people are determined to wanna race with me, or show me how fast their own cars are (grow up Pul-ease!).

One I really remember was coming up 17th ave SW, and once we got west of 14th, this nut in a Firefly Turbo (no idea those existed) went screaming in and outta traffic at hi-speed.  he was really moving.  I was doing about 55kms up that hill (typical spot for photo radar) and he went by me like I was waiting for the bus.

Now, I get into the car, put the camera in it's holder, press record, and head out to my 'Point B'. 

I think once I collect enough bad drivers stunts, it should make for a pretty good video...

Since buying my STi, I've had more close calls than I ever have...just because it attracts more attention on the road??  I was run off the road by 3 hammered guys in a taxi van.  Everyone was telling me "you should have done..."

Hey, that's cool.  I feel any dash cam is catching the oucheday bags doing dangerous things, is a good thing.   

Yup, that's what I'm doing... every dangerous driver I get on video is gonna get edited into one video on you tube.  What I do is right after the camera records the action, I stop recording, and then restart it.  That way, if there's a few sightings, all I have to do is check the end of each video.

Makes it easier for deleting, editing and for finding those key moments.

not sure if this goes here, but here it is anyway.

Bad couple days on the road for me, as I almost rear ended a person on QE2 Sunday because for some reason the person in front decides to slow down from the speed limit to about 80km/hr because it started raining harder than it already was, and before anyone says anything, I was following at a safe distance.

Same afternoon leaving gasoline alley back to Calgary in the right lane, some kid in a mustang turns out of the McD's lot in the left lane and decides to change lanes cutting me off hardcore.  Good thing for abs, and only going 50km/hr

and today around 4:30pm just about to get into the right left turn lane on 114st and barlow to get onto deerfoot north, some oucheday in a nissan truck gave me a few blasts of his horn about 2 to 3 secs each time because he needed the left turn lane and I was letting a semi into the lane.  Some people are so impatient.  I got pissed and gave him the finger as he drove past.  Shouldn't have done that, but was just heated in the moment as I didn't know why he was honking, it was pretty obvious what was going on.

I love Calgary rush hour!

8pm tonight, Hampton's Park NW.
Out walkin the dogs with the gf and literally, literally the sidewalks were packed. Amazing evening, slight breeze, not too hot, not too cold, just a tad humid. Perfect perfect night.

I don't even know what Audi this was, but it had the top down, sounded like a fighter jet, and I kid you not I would estimate him ripping 110km/h around the park where there were SO many young children, pets, dogs, kids playing soccer, elderly people, just flying this young 20-25 year old kid with a pink tight Hollister shirt on and his girlfriend passenger.

Saw him go up and down three times, and on the 3rd time there was an elderly Asian couple and a young young girl crossing the street.
He JUST about clipped them as they just passed the center of the street.

Words cannot describe. Condoms were invented for a reason, some people's uckfaying children. Daddy's Audi I presume.

All is clear and i  began to creep in to the other lane when (while still shoulder checking) I realize some POS hyundai suv is coming up behind me at probably 160kmh IN THE SLOW LANE im entering in to. I thought wtf is this car going to change into the open lane beside it or just come smash into me?  At this point im half way in the lane and the hyundai continues flying by me half way in my lane and half in the one beside it, if i had completed the lane change my car would be totalled for sure. No reason for going 50k over the limit mid day and even if it HAD to, the driver could have EASILY went into other lane instead of almost clipping my car. The driver knew my lane was ending too but insisted on shoving through. At that point i was PISSED and my buddy in the car behind me saw all this too. Then all 3 of us get off at the next exit. I really wanted to box the driver in and start driving 20 kmh in front of em just to isspay em off..... until i got beside the thing and saw a larger/older lady giving me the the dirtiest look. Instantly all my rage turned into confusion when i saw a handicap permit hanging inside  ???
I saw that and just continued driving normally, a second later she starts gunning it again....

I really wanted to box the driver in and start driving 20 kmh in front of em just to isspay em off..... until i got beside the thing and saw a larger/older lady giving me the the dirtiest look. Instantly all my rage turned into confusion when i saw a handicap permit hanging inside  ???
I saw that and just continued driving normally, a second later she starts gunning it again....

Bitter handicapped person. The whole world is at fault for thier problem(s). Deal with one here at work, they see that tag as a license to be unpleasant to everyone they meet. Hard to pity those kinds of ppl. Actually I don't. Don't respect them either.

You should have boxed that bag in!

Many other disabled/disadvantaged ppl rise above thier condition, and those are the ones who earn respect. I for one don't give out pity and respect as a matter of charity.

This belongs here. A guy in a black work truck decided to turn the knob to 11 out of nowhere. He seemed fine driving behind me for a while but must have got an emergency call from work or home as he suddenly went flying by in  a turning lane, weaving all over the road, and blasted down highway 8 at somewhere between 140 and 180 kph.

I love when I'm stopped at the red light on sarcee north just before the merge off right to stoney and someone comes up beside me in the left lane and for whatever reason makes an angered attempt to go faster than me in the left lane, cut accross infront of me and merge off 3 lanes over onto stoney southbound.
 I just drive at my regular pace off the light and the driver lays on his horn, I look to my left confused as to why he's honking at me and I'm maybe doing 70km/ in the 60km/h and he slams his brakes proceeding to cut 3 lanes last minute off to the stoney onramp ?? Lol wtf, people don't make any sense -

I get people like that a lot - Yesterday I'm heading SB on Crowchild, to turn off on EB Glenmore.  Of course before you get to the causeway, you can either stay in your lane, and end up on 14 street, or merge over and get onto EB Glenmore.

The idiot behind me must've felt it was his right to merge over into the lane first (over the crosshatch section) and then speed up and cut me off so I can't merge.

I really need a gopro camera in the back window...


About a month ago, I was going thru that construction section up Glenmore (way up about 84th?) where it's a 50 zone, and this Old man was driving a GMC safari (green/tan) van and he was soo far up my butt, I almost couldn't see his bonnet.  I took my camera off the dash, and I stuck it out the window, he backed off in a real hurry.  Lic plate was "MR MAND"

Sometimes what I like to do is, if there's a car slightly ahead of me that looks like a copcar, I'll drive a slight bit slower then posted (say 79 in an 80), and just cruise like that.  Sometimes a whole pile of cars will stay behind me (they are wondering why I'm doing this, and must figure that there's a cop somewhere) and they all slow down.  That effect works better at night, but I've done it in broad daylight and it sometimes works.   ^-^

Why would you intentionally drive slower than the posted speed limit to collect cars behind you? Sounds like that belongs in this thread, lol. Unless you mean the car ahead of you that looks like a cop is a cop, in which case that's pretty damn nice of you.

I never fall for that. I'm not that paranoid of cops especially when driving a mostly stock looking moderately priced car. I find that cops themselves will be doing 5-10 over the limit, and as long as you aren't doing a ricer flyby and stay with the flow of traffic I've never been hassled.

I'm sure 90% of the time the officer has somewhere to go and is not looking to pull over anyone who isn't blatently violating traffic laws. I'm sure they have better things to do than have to write up a ticket for everyone they see driving 5 km over the limit if they aren't actually working a traffic op.

Rules change tho depending on what you drive. I've done stupid things like u-turns and speed-thru-yellows unknowingly in front of a cop without trouble, but in "invisible" cars like in my outback, DD echo or back when I had a Smart car. Particularly the Smart. I could have a dead body strapped to the roof and cops wouldn't care. I think no one takes those cars seriously and automatically thinks you are a peaceful tree hugger when they see you.

But in anything moddified or expensive looking, I've been followed by cops just for no reason. Probably just to run my plates. One did a harsh U-turn just to follow me... . Boxster with staggered deep dish wheels, cop magnet. M3...uggghhh.. Brother's Vette or NSX, target sign on my back. But strangely one of the worse I've had was a black G35 coupe. I guess a lot of heat bags drive G35 coupes... Loved the car but man was it ever a pain in the assay being on five-oh lookout all the time...

That's why I love sleepers....

Some kid in a blue late-80s Corolla or maybe Sentra/Stanza tailgated me in an active year-round school zone, then tried to slow down and speed up repeatedly to "ram" and intimidate me (In the 97? Please.)

When that didn't work he cut around me, driving on the wrong side of the road and passing in an active year-round school zone, then proceeded to cut me off and rocket through the school zone. I got his plate because he got stuck at the red light in the (inactive) playground zone immediately afterward.

then a few minutes later i turn off on to 34th ave and stop at a light. i see this beat up minivan with a new driver sign turn into the intersection at literally 5 km/h, and then in between the lanes blocking both lanes of traffic on and off the brakes. the light turns green for me and the fricken woman is still blocking both lanes and the van is now crooked with her stopped and inching forward wtf??? i just manages to drive by but she ended up blocking a bunch of people behind me. woman was by herself. how are these people allowed to get their licenses??!!??

No, they just call it Calgary Trail because it's a shining beacon for all of Edmonton to look towards to figure out what city they must become.

It's like how we have an Edmonton Trail that's laced with potholes, blocked by construction and is the site of at least two murders a year.

That said, sometimes Edmontonians (who I admit are the better drivers) get confused and think they are Calgarians and drive like it.

But I was driving my wife's Suzuki Aerio the other day.  Was stopped at a red light.  When it turned green, the fellows beside me peeled out; spinning tires and all.  I was startled and looked over, and they were staring at me waiting for a reaction.  I hope I didn't give them one. 

They took off in an Hyundai Elantra.

It seems as if when there are no lines on the road (including a middle line) people seem to forget that they need to drive on their side of the road still, not wherever they feel like it. Around my house they paved the roads about a year ago and never put lines back on so people just drive wherever and its worse since everyone seems to park on the road instead of in their driveway or garage.

That second point drives me crazy, why does everyone park on the road instead of in their driveway/garage? I moved here from Ontario and most places you can't park on the road overnight, even in actual parking spots along the side, without being ticketed. So annoying.

It's because their garage is filled with crap. When we were house hunting I'd say the majority of houses we looked at either had a 2-car garage that was knocked down to 1-car because of all the crap in it, or was completely full of crap with no hope of a car ever getting into it.

True. I think since I moved into my house, almost three years ago, my cars have only been oputside overnight about three nights due to my driveway getting paved and then again when they sealed it this summer. Other than that, it is always clear enough to ut both cars inside every night.

It's because their garage is filled with crap. When we were house hunting I'd say the majority of houses we looked at either had a 2-car garage that was knocked down to 1-car because of all the crap in it, or was completely full of crap with no hope of a car ever getting into it.

It's part of our heritage.

almost got in a head on collision tonight. I had cars parked on my side of the road just around the corner from my place. no big deal, I'm still well within my half of the roadway, right? well, according to this bag of rotten enispay', I wasn't nearly far over enough to the point of me having to hammer my brakes and stop with my passenger mirror TOUCHING one of the parked trucks driver side mirrors and still having this jackass clip my driver mirror with his only to hear him yell for me to "quit hogging the road". nothing has made me angrier than this twat-knuckle pulling some ullbayitshay like this. I'm still shaking in anger, and this was about 1 hour ago. now to kill some sholeasays in borderlands.

This makes me rage too. Its pretty constant just driving on my little street up here with all the jacked up pick-ups and people who are still learning to drive and these roads are plenty wide. Back home where I lived in Toronto you could always tell who lived in the neighbourhood by how they drove down the narrow (with cars parked on both sides too) streets. If they were slow and stopped every time another car approached, they didn't live in the area. Those who did, had no problems at all navigating the streets with on coming traffic while maintaing a safe speed.

That second point drives me crazy, why does everyone park on the road instead of in their driveway/garage? I moved here from Ontario and most places you can't park on the road overnight, even in actual parking spots along the side, without being ticketed. So annoying.
Majority of ontario was this way, though, with how the housing is down here in Millwoods, there are a lot of apartment like buildings here that do not have any parking at all, or, like at my place, between the roommate and I, we have 5 cars. his toy that he never drives, the track only car, both taking up the garage, my SUV that I'm either going to sell or keep as a hauling car, plus his truck and my new car, both being forced to park on the road out front. only thing I can think of to say, "itshay happens"

I'm T.O. as well. streets are narrow as hell, and EVERYONE knew how to drive them. if you couldn't drive, you either took the subway, the bus, or both.

Last night. Cobalt SS on 16th Ave.

Nobody was impressed when you cutoff multiple cars so you could sit next to me at a light. I could not see you through your heavily tinted windows, but I bet you were really happy with yourself when you revved your engine and took off. Its too bad I dont street race or I could have kept you company when that cop pulled you over for speeding.

I hope he saw the whole thing.

was this cobalt all black with blacked out tails?
this guy tail gates me everytime he sees me in my neighbourhood and floors it every chance he gets.

Beyond the blatant homophobia why would you have not called him in? He was having issues controlling his truck and was failing to maintain his lane. Also if you are not going to call him in why keep followinG him? If he was trying to race you it only adds to his likely hood of uckfaying up and hitting someone else.

Also when he first came into your lane why did you stay so close? You knew at that point he was a poor driver so why not back off and let him be instead of trying to force a confrontation? If someone is being an idiot on the road it is easier to watch and avoid them when they are in front of you.

THe guy than reved the engine (trying to get me to race i guess  ???) and at green launched and speed off while i continued at my normal spe  :cops:

I didn't get his plate to call in, he would be long gone by then unfortunately. I wasn't following him as I live in Morinville this is one of 2 ways to get home ( ask anyone ). If I knew this guy was coming into my lane on purpose I would HAVE put my brakes on a little harder, BUT I was traveling 60km/hr with a vehicle on both sides of me I could not lane change. Then till I reviewed the video I thought he was slowing down for someone ahead of him, but I was wrong.

You are hearing my friend freak out at the guy in the passenger seat. I'm the second guy talking with the deeper voice that talks how I don't really prefer a salary over hourly

I don't get road rage easily, I just brush it off and continue on my way. I call in multiple DUI's and other occurrences when the come up. I could call in now that we have video footage with the plate, but like I said I couldn't read it at the time.

So I guess now that it's actually really nice out, this gives drivers an excuse to make left turns across two lanes of traffic effectively cutting everyone off because they don't want to get their freshly washed car dirty in the designated left turn lane. Bravo!

I'm not saying prescribe anything to the police just provide them with the evidence to go on file. Nearly driving into you is bad enough for them to be interested.

They'll go to his house and find he has a massive grow-op or people smuggling operation :)

Also.  The little green light means that your headlights are on.  I know you want to roll around the city all dark and scary like but if you dont turn your headlights on, my highbeams are going to be flashing in your rear window until you do.

This one belongs here, just because you put your turn signal on does not mean the cars beside you have to go out of their way to let you in the lane. A person in an SUV decided they wanted to be in the same lane as me and, more importantly, just had to be ahead of me. Never mind that they were going 20 kph less than me, the fact I didn't slam on my brakes to let them in was an unforgivable offense.

Watching a group of cars let a cop get by them is like watching a bunch of retards hump a uckfaying door knob. It was brutal.

Happens a lot here in kamloops because up until recently the city was using old street lights that other city probably stopped using 20 years ago.  Creates a dim orange light.  They are finally using a new LED light that is 1000000000000000000000000x better.

Lots of haters on the road home from work yesterday. Most days I ignore it as I'm not going anywhere stuck in heavy traffic. I'm watching them accelerate (only to brake heavily) to close a gap I was slowly heading for... no worries, I'll pull in behind you and get to where I'm going only one car further back. Yesterday I got sick of it and gave them a reason to hate, all within the law of course.

Last night in the burbs an asian lady in a Buick ran a stop sign, forcing me to brake heavily. There was only room for my vehicle on the narrow street. She blasted me with her horn so I parked in front and yelled at her for a bit, pointing at the stop sign while she gave me the blinking toad look, with both hands on the wheel. I don't think I got my point through to her. I wasn't videoing it either. Dammit.

I've posted this in the "Parking in a[n] open parking lot" thread, but my most recent neighbour is starting to lean up against the line again - a few times this past week, I've seen the back of his car angled towards my spot; twice in those instances he's been within 3" of the line.

At some point, that jackass is going to fling open his doors and ding my new(ish) car.  I've thought of a million and one different nefarious deeds to perform in return.  Knowing me, though, I probably won't follow through, as I don't want to end up in jail. 

Here's a shot from earlier days, when my Integra was still around.

There's a management company that oversees general maintenance, but because the property is not primarily for rental purposes, I'm not certain that the management company would pay any heed to my requests (as a private renter).

In any case, I expect that I'll be moving out of here by the end of this year.  Things are moving fast at my fiancée's end, and there's a good likelihood that we'll be moving in together prior to our wedding.  Add onto that fact that my landlord is looking to sell the place before her retirement this year, I have every incentive needed to GTFO of this place.

We've had over-nighters and trips together (in fact, there'll be one coming up very soon).  However, as much as I wouldn't mind moving in with her, she's the one who prefers to do things "by the book" - although things at home (for her) are softening her stance in that regard.

Sitting by the lights near a fire station. Hear sirens (at this point the light was red) anyways the fire truck goes through the intersection. Light turns green. Then I see and hear an ambulance coming out of the station as well so the lady in the car behind me in the left lane and I just wait for it as well. Then I hear the oucheday in the BMW SUV honk at the lady beside me like he wanted to go before the ambulance came through the intersection. The lady beside me fingered him and stayed put until the emergency vehicles were all gone.  Then as soon as the lady turned into my lane the BMW sped past (60 km/h zone) at about 70-80 km/hr. when we got to the next light I had to turn off and then he proceeded to finger me and give me the stare down. It frustrates me when people are in that much of a hurry they don't yield to emergency vehicles.

Cliffnotes:
  • At a stop sign, turning left to exit a parking lot
  • Truck approaching from my left, not sure if going straight or turning right
  • Person behind me gives a long honk
  • Truck finally signals
  • Exit lot, but slowly because ramp.  (I'm not slammed, but I'm low enough to scrape if I'm not careful)
  • Person behind speeds up and proceeds to cut me off

  • At next stop, lady hops out and tells me what an a-hole I am, and how I was driving purely to aggravate her.  I didn't totally understand what she was saying, but I got the a-hole part.  Plenty.

In retrospect, I can see how my slow exit after her long honk could be interpreted that way.  That was totally not my intention!  lol.  Oh well, what an embarrassing scene (for her).

Did you upset her further by being very polite as per usual?

I was more nonchalant, which was probably perceived as cockiness. 

Since I'm Asian, I should dress up more like a gangster, instead of my happy green fish hat.

This guy was driving like a total oucheday yesterday:

- Long line on turnoff ramp from N. deerfoot to E. 16 ave
- guy passes everyone on the left and cuts in behind me
- he assumed I wasn't turning right and unsuccessfully attempted to pass me on the shoulder before the turning lane began
- the merge process was painfully slow and he honked at me for some reason (I assume he thought I wasn't accelerating even though the vehicle in front of me was stopped)
- he then cut accross 2 lanes and sped up only to slam on the brakes because we're in a traffic jam!

Had a situation yesterday coming home from golden. About 10 minutes east of golden where the two lane highway returns to single lane, there was the sign that said right lane ending 100m so i switched into the appropriate lane, about 50m behind me was a prius going atleast 40km over the speed limit by the time he closed the distance between us the two lane highway had ended, instead of slowing down he sped past me in the right hand shoulder. Completley and uterlly stupid/dangerous. Not sure if i was more upset because pf the way he passed me or the fact that i got passed by a prius.

had a tool in a black Explorer Sport Trac tailgate the living itshay out of me going northbound on the Deerfoot tonight....in the rain.
there was a fair bit of traffic in all 3 lanes, all of which were going 80km/hr because of poor visibility, and the impatient shithead decided that travelling 4 feet from my rear bumper and flashing his brights (then leaving them on) was a good way to signal me to get out of his precious way.
with fairly heavy traffic, at night, in the rain. with nowhere for me to go

finally managed to let the shithead past me, and I proceeded to watch the guy swerve back and forth several times across 3 lanes of traffic in front of me. twice, vehicles had to jam on their brakes because he flat-out cut them off.
in the rain, at night.

just once I'd like to see a ghost car light up when someone drives like a complete oucheday.

Related: Guy decided to ride my bumper on the stoney trail entrance ramp from metis trail. Then he sped past me like I was some kind of oucheday bag holding him up. A minute later I saw cop lights turn on up ahead. It was him pulled over!! I did a double tap on my horn (toot-toot!) and waved as I passed. Felt awesome to see justice served.

Last winter I got passed by an F-350 doing a substantial amount over the speed limit on the Deerfoot. I had been going a poke (5-10 maybe) under the speed limit and staying to the right lane because I wasn't 100% sure about the road conditions and it was the middle of the night. Not enough for this guy. He barreled up to my bumper, narrowly passed me on the Ivor Strong bridge and then quickly blasted out of sight.

Around 32nd Ave, many kilometers later, I saw flashing police lights and found an F-350 of the same colour and approximate age had spun out across multiple lanes and taken a Dodge Ram directly into the front passenger door. There was a blanket laid over the window by the police so I don't think it turned out terribly well for the occupants considering the A-pillar was bashed in. :(

doubtful that it was an emergency (the thought did cross my mind though). the early 20s retard in the passenger seat was laughing at me as they passed me.

I'm pretty good about getting out of the way of people driving faster than me, but traffic was fairly heavy in all lanes and visibility was crap. oh well, at least he didn't cause a wreck.

This one challenged me a little bit today. A pedestrian was crossing between intersections on 12 St SE. Plenty of time for him to walk to either the controlled intersection, or the uncontrolled... but, nooo, he chose the middle of the road approach, crossing from right to left in front of me.

My thought:  an adventurous person, willing to take risks. I'll go around and pull into the left turn lane in front of him. He's on the other side of the double yellow lines and out of danger. I should be fine. He stops and gives me the death stare. I assume because I didn't come to a grinding halt because of his "untouchable" pedestrian status, never mind that he was jaywalking (all captured on dash cam).

And that's how we sit for the next little while. Him, finally off the road and safely on the sidewalk and still trying to vapourize me with his eyes, and me waiting to turn left at a red light, in neutral, park braked, hand on the seatbelt release and ready to leap out of the car if he dares come any closer. Normally this would have raised my pulse and worked me right up into a throat choking aneurysm. Today I just calmly watched and wondered if he was truly stupid enough to confront me.

Might have douchebagged someone today.  I was on yellowhead east turning right onto wayne gretzkey south right before rexall place.  I wanted to beat the traffic so I was right on the guys assay infront of me, foot hovering on the brake as we both turn right.  We both make it, and were at the next set of lights, far right lane, he's still infront of me.  He's in a Ford Edge btw.  So the light turns green and he floors it probably cause he thinks I'm going to tail him again, but I have no reason too since were not turning.  He screams over the hill, bridge for trains, and turns into the middle lane probably to get out of my way.  I continue to drive reasonably in the far right, not tail gating at all and going about 65-70km.  Cops, laser radar, sitting at the bottom of the hill, steps in my lane, points at the Ford in the middle lane and waves him into rexall place parking.  I kind of feel responsible but not really.  It also, could be because when people see toy cars they all the sudden become kimi raikonen.  In the end better him then me, but if I had something to do with it, that wasn't my intention.  Oops.

To the super-swole bro in the new Dodge Ram Sport, who spent a good 5-10 minutes trying to prove his manliness to...himself?...this morning, 16A West from the west end to Acheson, just a few points/observations...:

- *nod* Yes, your truck is responsive. Because Race Truck. *nod*
- No, I won't race you. No matter how much you speed up then hammer your breaks beside me, 10 feet either way at a time.
- Just because there's 3 lanes, dropping behind me in the left lane, cutting across the middle lane close enough to my rear bumper to almost cause a paint transfer, then tearing up past me in the right hand land (because it's ending) and cutting in front of me while riding your brakes (105 down to 85) isn't going to change my mind about the racing thing.
- You made me spill some coffee. Do you know how hard it is to get coffee out of the SI-Drive/DCCD buttons? *sigh*
- When I turned off the highway on the same off-ramp as you, this was not out of a revenge-fueled desire to race you, so you probably didn't need to pin it, taking the ramp at easily 120-130...I was turning off to head to work.
- As I slowly crept past you at the lights and gave you a "Seriously...?" look before turning right, I'm sure that giving me the finger and what I can only assume is a "come get some" hand gesture was the right thing to do. I'm honestly not sure, I'm not up to speed on the Bro lingo and gestures at this point.

Just a heads up, black (maybe dark blue, I don't know, it was 6 A.M...) Dodge Ram Sport. Another guy drove by us in an Evo X, doing ~125 and the guy didn't blink, so maybe he just has a hard(hate)-on for STi's.

seems to me that the worse the roads are, the later people are willing to go through a red light.
Mostly in left turns, after advance arrows, even though you are perfectly capable of stopping.
Ive thought about pulling out into the intersection, then stopping again, but im worried about a truck loosing its back end...

also: is it ok to honk when people are driving 80 or 75 on hwy 2 in dry, non slippery conditions?
Was driving back from edmonton last night in a work truck in 2wd with zero issues, going 110 and I felt like I was going to get a ticket. Almost no-one was going faster than 90. Every 10 minutes or so id come up behind one or more cars just chilling in the left lane, doing the exact same speed as cars in the right. Dont wanna tailgate em because thats super dangerous, especially in the winter with a heavy assay truck, so I often wound up douchily passing on the right which made me feel like a bad man.

That right their pisses me off to no extent. The turn light going yellow does not mean speed up to go faster even though the guy in front of me will most likely just barely make it. If I have to slow down while going straight to avoid hitting you, you should not be going.

I went to the court-house to pay a photo radar ticket.
Saw a parking spot that was the closest distance to the entrace.
Decided not to since it was a tight one, so parked on the other street.

I got out and saw a POS-van try to park there.
He had no room to get out so he backs up, and as he backs up his drivers side mirror touches the truck beside him and makes a horizontal scratch (10-15cm).
I was a couple of foot away starring at him and we made eye contact.
ROFL, He looked away, backed up and parked there again.

The scratch was deep, but he looked pretty sketchy and scary.

Case 1:

I swear... 90% of truck drivers (at least in Edmonton) are SUCH GIANT DOUCHEBAGS!!!!  I was stuck in traffic at Whitemud this evening, everyone was doing walking speeds due to the major accidents and sideways vehicles from the freezing rain.. anyhow, stuck in traffic for a good hour and I saw at least 1 dozen.. YES at least 12 trucks with HID bulb in reflector headlight AND HID foglights.  I can see cars that was stuck in front of them had to turn their mirrors to avoid getting blinded.  Unlike a loud exhaust that only irritates people, these b*****ds are actually putting others on the road in danger.. I swear these guys should be tortured than put down  >:(

Case 2: 

We were bombed with snow storms for a couple of days in a roll, the roads are not in good shape, within 30 mins of driving on Gateway Blvd, 3 trucks speeds out from side roads, guns it and completely looses control across 3 lanes... lucky there wasn't many cars around, and my snow tires are good enough to slow me down quick enough.  >:(

Incredibly Icy yesterday, doing all my christmas shopping and i see this big suped up lifted diesel turning left, at the very end of a yellow, he makes the turn, then triumphantly rolls coal and he hits the gas hard to kick his assay end out. All the way around, now im coming up behind (now infront of him) and stop as he sits there with a wtf face, trying to realize which way hes facing or which side of the road hes on. Slowly raise my hands and give him a sarcastic slow clap. Friend joins in with sarcastic slow clap.

(http://1-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffuuka/board/wsg/image/1360/59/1360594157044.gif)

He became incredibly upset at this point and started attempting to remove his seat belt, surely to attempt some sort of greasy middle of the road winter time scuffle.

Continue clapping sarcastically. The instigation rises. All the vehicles start laying on their horns, he accepts he has made a horrendous fool of himself and sucks up his pride, and rolls coal to turn again and nearly oversteers into a light pole, then continues to punch it as fast as he can to outrun his own defeat.

Steer with knees and clap all the way home.

Hey guys which of these pedals do I use to do a merge???

That's right, the brake! Just mash on the brake while clumsily flinging your car into traffic at thirty below the uckfaying limit while the entire onramp stacks up behind you, it'll be a safe merge for everyone!

Oh itshay it's icy! Time to mash the brake in the middle of a corner because it's not like upsetting the weight distribution of the car makes it more unstable! Holy uckfay why am I in a ditch

Someone texted me bad news! Time to repeatedly slam on the uckfaying brake because my primate hindbrain has learned that the brake pedal is the appropriate reaction for "something is going vaguely wrong in my life" and there are no consequences ever to hitting the uckfaying brakes!!!!

Wait, service my brakes? Those are so expensive! Brakes are all the same, just like how nobody needs winter tires. (goes to cheapest possible brake repair place run out of the back of a combination boat repair shop and pawn shop)

I'm glad this bad bus driver was dealt with but I am also curious to know why the other driver had a dashboard cam in their car. This isn't Russia!

This was a good one. Leaving Crowfoot, a guy in a Ford Escape cuts across three lanes and almost hits my front end. I lay on the horn but he doesn't even slow down, swerve, nothing. I have Supertones, I'm sure he heard them. I pull up beside them and what do I see? The stereotypical frat boy oucheday. Slicked back hair, large sunglasses, and a Starbucks coffee in his hand.

This guy passed me on Stoney at probably 150Km/h, only to turn off at the same exit as me and stop at the lights in front of me. He then proceeded to hammer the gas, slam on the brakes as someone changed lanes in front of him, then go around and speed away into the sunset. There's just something about VW drivers  :-X

Last night, heading home from work, I encountered some interesting driving from a guy in GMC Sierrra. Was heading South on Clover Bar out of Sherwood park and just where it turns into RR 231 at the school just past Wye Road. I was still in the 60km/h section but accelerating... apparently not quick enough though because this guy then pulls out into the oncoming lane to pass me. Further down the road he tries to pass another truck the same way and nearly clips an oncoming car.

Guy in a clapped out GMC towing an equally clapped out RV passed me in the pouring rain on the QEII yesterday. I was doing 7 over the limit in Pumpkin, he was doing much more than that and I remembered thinking "what a uckfaying tool, speeding in the rain in that wreck, and towing as well". Passed him later on Hwy16 heading East from Edmonton, parked on the side of the road with a wheel missing off the RV. At least there were no other vehicles involved.

This happened last week, driving home from work on Highway 8 going east, in the turn lane to turn to 101st, there is a nice long of cars going west on highway 8 so i had to wait.  Some one in a 6 series BMW goes just past the turn does a U turn in the middle of the highway then turns right onto 101st to avoid the line up to turn left.

I am waiting to turn and the BMW does his u turn where the white car is in the distance.

This was good. BMW 760 driver on northbound Deerfoot speeds up to block me as I'm coming up on slow moving traffic (semi truck and guy speed matching the truck). He passes them and I pass him while doing the same. Not 20 seconds later, he does a ricer flyby. He being a 60 year old man. He promptly slows down and tries to cut me off as I'm going on to Country Hills.

Yesterday evening was like a full moon.

Had a GC8 WRX weaving between lanes, while stopping, to catch up to me, which then sparked life into the Sentra driver. Light goes green, Sentra driver chirps his tires, he's off the line so fast, GC8 takes the inside lane, but goes wide, almost hitting me. Sentra ends up behind me somehow, and then tailgates me, almost rear ending me. While sitting at that light, I see a white GC8 (driving normally), but the truck on the outside turn lane decides to try and drift around the white GC8.

Blue GC8 takes off, and is never heard from again, except when he blows by my house, constantly shifting, to let everyone know how awesome his BOV sounds.

Oh and when I walked the dog this morning, the Blue GC8 grew a white spoiler and trunk overnight.

People were going full retard today. A woman decided that it was my fault that I had to slam on my brakes while going through a 4-way intersection because she decided to put on her turn signal and turn left at the last minute. Apparently when it's your turn, nobody else can go even if it would speed up traffic flow. Closer to home, a youngish woman in a white Mazda3 thought that 80 in a 50 kph residential zone was appropriate and almost ran into me when I changed lanes.

Woman in a Jeep, traffic backed up.  "I think I'll do something else, because why not?"  I run into her at the 40th Ave/Terwillegar Dr. North intersection.. she drives like anyone else until she runs into traffic...

http://youtu.be/x0A5YNiXtqE

About halfway through the she gets awfully distracted in her mobile office, so I pressed on the horn.   This works for a bit, but soon enough, she forgets my intrusion into her workplace.

So about 20 seconds into the next clip, I lean on the horn..  she doesn't take kindly to this and waves back, presumably to apologize for being an idiot.

http://youtu.be/8y-DZcCNHj0

It was an entertaining drive in..  took me all of 1 hr, in which usually it's only a 10-15 minute drive.

I need to redo my supertones wiring harness.

Post by: jackal on August 20, 2014, 04:35:07 PM
I suppose I understand being frustrated with her being distracted,  but leaning on the horn to ensure she's right on the bumper of a car stopped 30 ft ahead is only going to aggravate the situation,  and maybe even pressure her into a larger mistake. It's not like traffic was moving anywhere anyway.

I have been honked at for not riding the rear bumper of a car ahead of me,  leaving a car length or more gap. I don't understand it.  The car in front of me isn't going anywhere,  and mathematically you are not getting to your destination even one second faster if i'm tucked up. 
Title: Re: Douchebag season has begun
Post by: Claw on August 21, 2014, 08:30:12 AM
Yeah, but the whole way from the lights?

If she's moving along, everyone is also moving along.  I don't care if it's 30 ft or more, but it keeps the flow moving even though there is no larger en masse movement of vehicles along there.  That's a single lane exit out of SW Edmonton, cars are continuing to pile out of that neighborhood.. and here you have a single car holding up the line.

Here's a picture to illustrate the distance..  I didn't get on the horn until there was obviously more than one car length between her and the guy in front.
(http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff385/stfurtfm/distracted_zps7c297d38.png)

So anyways, today a young whippersnapper bronze Contour, JAA 386, decides he's going to cut off peoplea and jump on the brakes.  Did it twice, almost hitting my ride's rear bumper as he cuts off the first car.. and as he's being honked, slams on the brakes.  Later on he decides he wants to be in my ride's spot, so he accelerates so he's barely ahead and jumps in front of him, then slams on the brakes.

This guy passed me on a solid line on country hills blvd IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE! The speed limit was 80 and I was going about 85-90 and he was riding my bumper. Then the limit dropped to 50 when the construction zone began so I let off the gas and began dropping speed. Next thing I know, this guy is passing me! I gave him a good long honk to let him know of my disapproval, but it really ticked me off. (Photo taken by passenger 8))

Best part of this dangerous and illegal move is that he gained ONE spot in front of me. What a giant oucheday.

1. Drivers ignore pedestrians trying to cross at a crosswalk.

2.  Drivers honk at pedestrians for crossing at a crosswalk.

3.  A driver creep forward from a stop sign as I'm approaching with right away to the point they're blocking a lane and I'm hovering the brake thinking he's gonna go for it.

4.  A driver block traffic because he's trying to turn left into a busy parking lot.

The bike was not street legal (no signals, mirrors, licence plate, etc). The guy was beside us at some light (in the right hand turning lane). Light turns green and he rips ahead and proceeds to wheelie down the road. He weaves around some vehicles and then went up on the sidewalk and turned the corner.  Then on the next street he ended up back on the sidewalk again for a bit and then drove through a red light. The whole time he kept looking back (for cops I assume). What a tool. I have never seen such an idiot on the road.

Holy uckfay. 4 open car lengths behind me but some dumb untcay in a uckfaying Acura SUV has to get in-front of me. I call him a uckfaying untcay as he drives by and he wants to do a window roll-down yelling match. I nope out of that, cause I don't open myself to crazy. He now wants to fight.

Only reason I hate driving an odd and rare car is it's easily identifiable. Need to start carrying a weapon under my seat if this is the base standard to expect.

WTF is it with 4x4 truck owners acting like they're fast and furious as soon as they see my car? had a dipshit in an early-2000s, white, extended cab chev 4x4 (with itshay-sounding snap/crackle/pop side exhaust) do 6-8 full-throttle ricer fly bys while trying to goad me into a street race on southbound Barlow this afternoon.
after the first couple of fly bys even a moderately retarded monkey should have clued in that I'm not interested in street racing.

I think I'll start driving the Crapalier more. far fewer slow-assay mouth-breathers try to see if they measure up when I drive that old girl.

Long time ago I was on Deerfoot and this dude was weaving in & out of traffic - at one point passed a guy on the right in the shoulder lane. This was on the straight road NB Deerfoot just after Calf Robe bridge.

Anyways, seeing this dumbass - I turned my dashcam and gave him a quick beep, as I pointed to the dashcam.. (thinking in my mind) "hey buddy, keep driving like a oucheday - I'll forward this clip onto the cops!!"   ---- He got ENRAGED rolled his window down .. the dude literally went ballistic was jerking his wheel like he was going to run me off the road. THEN, he leans to SPIT out his window.

100km/h Deerfoot + spitting out the window = spit comes back on your own face.  I still laugh thinking about this fool haha.

Last time I was in Banff, I was headed East towards Banff Ave to turn left, and I had a solid green light. And what do you know, there's 6 people crossing the road straight in front of me (in the "don't walk" direction). So I gave them a taste of my 4 Hella Supertones and one of the girls jumped about 2 feet in the air. I felt like justice was served. Pedestrians can be douches too.

Light goes yellow. First car completes their left turn. Second car runs it, and it turns to red as they make it around. The crosswalk light changes to green. Mr. McCuntbag Mercedes, from a full stop, starts his left turn.

I kind of had the same thing last night.  Truck waiting to turn left.  Light turns yellow.  People the other way run it.  Truck finally gets to clear out.  Then guy behind him (who is behind the stop line and is stopped) decides to go as my advance starts.  I am done with this at this intersection by my house. I crept forward a bit but didn't cross my stop line and just hooked at the guy when he locked eyes with me.

Camaro guy gets mad, romps throttle, goes into left lane to go around, loses back end, crashes into center median, involuntary rear camber adjustment accomplished.

Best part: truck pulls over ahead of Camaro guy (I'm thinking wow.. nice guy to see if he's ok)  Truck stops, finger goes out the window, truck guy rolls coal and drives away.

Coffee ended up on my windshield by way of my nose.

With all the high HP cars being made readily available to any average driver, who for all we know, have no idea what they're doing behind the wheel - it's no surprise.

400hp RWD everything. Errrrrrt boom crash.

And the same idiots say the FRS is under powered...embarrassing since they should be probably starting off with what they're calling a "girls" car in the first place. Respect the power!

Another day, another moron running a red light. This one may take the cake though. The light went yellow. A person completed their left turn as they should. The crosswalk light changes. I start walking. That's when someone decided to go through the intersection, from a total stop mind you. I threw up my hands with the "wtf" sign and the fat skid mark got upset. Go figure.

I'm actually considering calling the city and suggesting they put a red light camera there. It's right by a damn hospital, yet people will regularly run it.

Most recent QE2 douchebaggery.

Coming up on accident in slow lane. See traffic start to move over and slow. I match fast lane speed(now 30kmh). Dumb old bag purposely blocks me out in an attempt to... prevent me from being one car ahead.

Naturally I edge my nose in while she does her best to stay inches from my door. I give her a courtesy wave once fully in the lane and she flips me off. I then see her stupid face 5 more times on the trip because she doesn't use cruise control.

I used to think BMW owners were the biggest uckyfay on the street, but they're mild compared to motorcycle owners.

seriously, do all people go full retard the second they get on a bike? dude was revving the itshay out of his gixxer next to me, with literally 6-7 car lengths in front of him to get fast and furious with. pretty sure he saw me laughing at him, he proceeded to accelerate up to 150-160, buzzing mirrors as he went between cars and weaved through traffic like no laws existed.

really need to get a dash cam. I didn't catch the uckyfay's plate number, or he would have been called in.

That's really the only explanation I have for the retarded itshay I see on a regular basis. These people must be the inbred off-spring of society's dregs. For the second time, I saw someone come to a complete stop at a red light, only to start turning left when the crosswalk light changed and perpendicular traffic had the green light. I saw another itshay stain ride their bike across traffic, forcing an SUV to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting the waste of semen.

So many cyclists riding down sidewalks right beside the road that was narrowed just to add a bike lane for them. Biking down the road, then stopping at a cross walk, jumping off their bike to make traffic have to stop for them because they're now magically a pedestrian.

I love when cyclists come to a red light, bike up to the front of the cars then cut in front of you and move back in the middle of the lane,... then do it at the next light.

I wish I had a dash cam for this one! So I'm cruising along Metis Trail approaching the ramp to Stoney Trail a few hundred metres away. I see a truck hauling assay in my mirror and as it gets closer I realize its an F550 dually LIMO (WTF) probably going about 120-130 Km/h in the 60 zone, pumping out black smoke. Then this guy takes the ramp onto Stoney at full speed. He took the first exit off Stoney onto Deerfoot and by the time I got on Deerfoot he was nowhere in sight!

Why are so many limo drivers scum? Also, it was quite easy to find a pic of the limo since the back window had a massive XLIMO.CA sticker on it.

Almost got run off the road by some dumb itchbay in a minivan. She pulled out of a parking lot wide as itshay, into the Centre Lane, I was in the right hand Lane and she stayed in the middle Lane long enough I didn't think she was gonna be retarded. But then she Was retarded and just immediately started coming into my lane so she could turn right, while I was coming up in the lane, no signal, nothing. Had to lay on my horn, probably came less than and inch away from the curb. Should have stopped and reamed her out because it was either get side swiped or go onto the curb and risk hitting someone.

Had my windows down and heard people yelling at her, cussing her out. So as long as the fear was put in her. Still though. Smarten up.

His lane is ending..  he's not signalling, so I had no idea wtf he's doing.  Then he slows down and starts to drift over, eventually coming to a stop.  PT cruiser behind him slammed on the brakes and rear ended him.  NBD..  he didn't even notice.

They're straight line vehicles, the 6.4L with leather everything and so much space. I would want one too :P Just don't try and evasive maneuvers, they have a tendancy to blow out the tire with the weight transfer, making it about as stable as the the Ford Exploders with the Firestone debacle.

The Ram SRT-8s, seem like the people who buy them regret it and want to buy a Cummins.

Meanwhile, I get pulled over for window tint in an over-dramatic fashion - just missing the curb hopping. The vehicle driving to my side at the time I noticed a god damn cop car coming up my arse all lit up but no siren was a jacked up $80k+ super duty with window tint so that irked me even more.

He was originally turning left to go to Timmies I presume so it must have been a tough call - go to Timmies, or rip a U-Turn and pin it to 40+ over the speed limit to catch me (already half a kilometer away on my way home from said Timmies cruising along to my tunes at the speed limit) in a POS tax payer funded gas guzzling AWD Hemi Charger with interior made of recycled fisher price toys.

5th time pulled over in my JDM (blatant harassment), first pull-over where I go a ticket, and it being my first ever ticket in 5 years. I never paid attention to my car having window tint on the front windows because from inside it doesn't even seem like they are. Big derp on my part but never thought about it till now. Especially since all the previous times being pulled over they never said a thing. I'm scared to even drive now haha it's going to be hard to remove - no telling how long it's been tinted. Need a steam cleaner I heard.

I saw this happen once but with 4 cars following each other through a red light... I never really understood why but I bet they're each distracted half looking at their phones and relying on the vehicle ahead of them moving to make a decision before even consider if the light is green. It's a little ridiculous.

A ghost Suburban was a few minutes behind in quiet pursuit. Something tells me he's not gonna catch this guy. I've never been passed by someone going so fast. It was absolutely insane.

Yeah i understand the concept that they have the right of way when exiting out of a bus stop but i disagree that they have the right away when switching lanes. They do not shoulder check, rather, they just start changing lanes so they dont miss their turn and expect you to push over or let them in. This could be very dangerous if you are riding a motorbike.

Agreed. 30 seconds of my life for a full bus of people (which you want to allow in because hey, you let the bus meet the schedule and not inconvenience 30 other people)

Today I was coming back from lunch headed up McLeod and I was tailgated by a JDM Land Cruiser w/ lift, big tires and snorkel in the left lane. I'm doing the speed limit, so I move over. In front of me was a guy on an older Gixxer, and the guy in the Land Cruiser started to tailgate the bike. Like, I'm talking 3 feet tops.

I've always approached buses keeping in mind their task at hand and how they have to operate. I've never had a problem, and I don't male a habit of hanging out beside them, or anyone. If you observe the traffic before you encounter it you usually have a really good chance of avoiding the types of situations you are describing.

I don't think the issue is so much having to wait and give the bus the right of way, so much as busses driving very aggressively in general and pushing people out of lanes with no warning.

This very thing happens by my house in Edmonton almost daily, since I live close to a Transit Centre. I have no problem letting a bus in, if they're signalling and trying to merge. What I do have a problem with is when bus drivers just start drifting into my lane without signalling, acting like they're the only ones on the road. They do have the right of way, but they're also expected to obey traffic laws like the rest of us.

I see exponentially more people who seem perfectly OK with driving endlessly beside someone, even in their blindspot, than I do buses drifting into lanes trying to sideswipe others.

I drive big trucks. I also have a bus license. Sometimes you have no choice but to signal and start moving or you'll never get over. Don't believe me? Then you haven't driven large vehicles in a city before.

I wasn't comparing one style of driving to another, or if a person drives big vehicles or not. My main point was that everyone with any kind of licence should abide by the rules of the road.

And in relation to my previous point, I was mostly pointing out when large vehicle drivers drive aggressively, without signalling. Just because they'd have no other opportunity to merge, for example, shouldn't be an excuse to put my safety at risk.

Merging onto Henday North from Stoney Plain, I am in a string of 3 cars, being the last one I am the first to signal our intent to merge onto Henday.
My signal is on for most of the on ramp and is painfully obvious to traffic on the Henday.
Shoulder check, lane is clear...
Shoulder check just as I am about to hit the dashed lines where I can begin merging after the two cars immediately ahead of me are merging and suddenly a BIG uckfaying oucheday BAG in his Ford SUV comes flying up and takes my spot while simultaneously slamming on his brakes to avoid hitting the car ahead of me. To quote the "Champ" radio personality from the Canadian Brewhouse commercials, I snap and loose my itshay, merge directly behind this uckfay wad and flip on the HIGH BEAMS. I then revert back to low beams, drop a gear and pull up along side this idiot with a full on Middle Finger to Yo uckfaying Face out the passenger window and hold this position for 1km just to ensure that he did receive at least one indication I had made. Then proceed along my way to work unperturbed.

In retrospect I could have kept my cool but I am soo sick and tired of these uckfaying people who have zero consideration for the other vehicles on the road and drive by the mentality of I'M FIRST and the complete and utter lack of knowledge about how to merge.

But seriously, if it was a "me first" mentality, he likely would've moved to the left lane and gone around everyone. More than likely, you didn't see him, he was treating it like a merge, and rightfully should have ended up in the middle of the group, rather than the back.

Well two shoulder checks + a long assay time of signalling to merge + his urgent braking to avoid hitting the car ahead of me somehow does not compute into "Capable Driver" or "Courteous Driver". More likely he had just cut into the right lane while travelling faster than traffic in that lane and then not realizing that traffic was actually merging right there.

Sounds more like the guys up front of you were merging under the limit, and cut the dude off. I've been in that dudes position. You're cruising along in the right lane, some people merge in, under the limit, and all of a sudden you're in the middle of a group.

about turning into the correct lane......

A couple weeks ago my wife was taking a defensive drive course.. (for work)

during the driving portion:

Instructor:
"Make a left here" (on to a multi- lane road).
" then make a right at the end of the block:
Wife
"OK" (proceeds to turn into correct lane)

Instructor:
" no.. wrong lane, you need to make a right, so turn into the curb lane"

Wife
" No, that would be a California lane change, I'm turning into the correct lane, then I will change lanes"
(im not sure of the actual definition of "California lane change", but it's what we call it in our house)

Instructor :
"...silence"...

after about 3 minutes of silence...
instructor: "your right, about that turning into lanes... I have to brush up my skills"
red face...

IMO opinion this is the reason for so many bad drivers: there is no accountability on the trainers/testers that issue the licenses.
I wonder if giving the training and testing over to a private organization (as opposed to the gov't) that has a vested interest in the success of the drivers. Like possibly in the hands of the insurance companies themselves, these are the companies that have to pay out for all of the itshay these crappy drivers cause. Just a passing thought but a gov't employee who works 9-5 and doesn't give a itshay about the actual driving performance of the individual and will award them a license based upon many other factors aside from the skill required (Hot girl, friend of a friend, $$$, etc) and on top of that has no accountability for issuing said licenses, this just doesn't work. I would totally be game for a 5 year renewal cycle on license testing, bad habits do creep in for anybody and would serve as a refresher, this would weed out some of the really bad drivers and encourage people to stay on top of this skill. Unfortunately our current system makes people think it is their RIGHT to drive a vehicle on public roads but in fact is only a PRIVILEGE and one that can be taken away but seems to occur for only the most heinous offences (DUI/excessive speed or racing/vehicular manslaughter).

Anyhow that is my rant for the day.

Post by: Unholysavage on November 24, 2016, 09:32:10 AM
I've always wondered how so many Calgary drivers could be so bad, but a ittshay teacher can only produce a ittshay student.
what I don't understand is why a drivers license can only be taken away after a heinous offense (or an outrageous number of not-so-good ones). why not take the damned thing away every single time a person gets into an at-fault accident, only to be re-instated by successful completion of a defensive driving course? perhaps even a 3 strikes, you're out forever policy. as much as I dislike insurance companies, maybe they need to hit their wallets harder so that they leave space between their vehicle and the one ahead of them, or conscientiously leave their phones in their pockets while behind the wheel? 
this past week the Deerfoot, during my evening commute time (usually 6-6:30pm), there has been at least one multi-vehicle incident on the way home. every single day. hell, on Tuesday there was a FIVE car pile-up near 130th. driving conditions were utterly perfect - perfectly straight, clear road and not even a setting sun to contend with. having lived within walking distance of work up until this spring, I'm appalled at the poor quality of driving in this city. when winter hits I feel that things won't be so fun...

rant aside, I saw some karma that made me smile the other day. I'm in the left lane, southbound going over Calf robe bridge, going around a slower driver in the middle lane. just as I'm next to him, a black BMW (535?) flew past us on the far right (30-40km/hr faster than everyone else). he gets only a few cars ahead when I see him jam on his brakes and abruptly cut back into the middle lane. looking ahead, it becomes obvious that he was hoping to do an infamous BMW double-laner, but karma slapped him - there's a vehicle in the left lane next to him that thwarts his douchiness. just as the BMW driver was attempting to bolt back into the right lane a grey Dodge Ram flew by (also driving like a oucheday) and cut him off. followed immediately by brake lights on the Ram and slowing down to pace the BMW. from what I could tell, the driver in the left lane must have decided to do the same (because we all slowed down to ~90km/hr, and space was opening up ahead of them). the BMW driver was blocked in until the truck exited onto Anderson.
the green line can't come soon enough. LOL

About provincial instructors licensing
I've been licensed by the province 3 separate times as a provincial driving instructor (motorcycles)
Just for full disclosure- you have to teach a minimum of so many hours yearly to keep
Your instructor license- and working overseas makes it frequently hard for me to get my minimum hours in.. so re write
And re quality it is.
The written part is actually pretty complete with a good exam with a high pass mark - and an additional portion for motorbike stuff on top.
However the skills and practice part is 100 % left to the private sector. and if you teach your min hours and keep your medical up to date.. you never have to re quality.
I've witnessed some instructors with very poor skills teaching in fact
To the extent they were not able to demonstrate some required skills to the students.
It's  a broken process.
I'm sure it's the same in the auto instruction world- just its
WAY easier to spot lack of skill on a motorcycle.
That said  we (my family) take some type of driving instruction every year- from auto Cross to winter driving to
Track time. As mentioned above you just have to be very careful about the quality of instruction.

It's true that most people are horrible at understanding this but this scenario isn't ALWAYS the case.

That's true. Have you noticed there's actually another left lane on SB 53rd in that spot that's been blocked off by concrete barriers for years? I wonder if they're ever gonna open that up, or why it's even there if they don't use it.

I think it used to be a dual turn, but they've even repainted the lines. I think they should steal that blocked off lane, and make a dedicated turn lane from 53rd onto Crowchild. It's been like that since I used to live in edgemont, over 8 years ago.

Being from Europe, few things that blow my mind when driving here.

Lack of left/fast line concept, "I am driving speed limit so f.o.",

Stopping at a free merge line, at an intersection, looking left because "I wanna jump right to the left line right away" instead of driving slowly, getting to speed and merging to middle line.

People getting confused about cars turning left at an intersection in front of them, and they are turning right, they have right of way but they get confused and stop, letting the car turning left go, even thou they have a right to go first.

People on a merging line assuming they have a right to merge, not understanding its a coming car courtesy to let them in.

Stopping at an intersection and turning right, just before a car that goes straight at full speed.

Zipper merge, when one line is under construction, instead of using two lines to the point where the flow goes one way, there is all weird s..t happening with guys trying to block the line that ends far before it ends. 

Good thing, driving is very defensive here, you dont get too many testosterone freaks that make the roads extremely unsafe so above its just stuff you can anticipate knowing local driving habits. ;)

It is easier to just go to the next set of lights for parking anyways,  I hate parking in the outside parking there such a pain in the butt to get out.  The underground parking lot turn light usually doesn't have a massive line up, and way easier to get to after getting off of glenmore.

Guy (in a mini van) doesn't signal turning right.  Then, once turned, he drifts in and out of the lane (2 lane road).  Pull up at the light, say hello and how he failed to signal and was drifting.
Proceeds to tell me; "You can F*** right off you D***"  You aren't the police, stay behind me if you don't know how to drive.  I respond;  "we'll that has nothing to with how I drive but more specifically has to do with courtesy and the rules of the road.  However, you are right, I am not police".

Light turns green, and off he speeds until he's stuck slamming on the brakes for the car in front of him.
