B/c more or less the only requirement to get a driver's license is that you are breathing. And that police officers enforce speed limits but nothing else.

watched the car in front of me nearly get t-boned downtown this morning, by a jackhole who was flying through red lights (not in the "zomg it's yellow, i should probably go faster!" way, but in the "i know that light went red like 4 seconds ago, but i'm sure no one will notice if i just speed up and barrel on through")

he was in a green ford ranger, though, and i kinda hope he runs into a wall

jackhole

There's one guy, his plate is mattsdad or something like that. He drives a BMW like he owns the road. That's the only time I've really noticed an asshole BMW driver.

I saw one driving like ass this morning on my way to work. They did the "I'm going to get into the left turn lane but then swing wide right and infringe on the traffic lane" thing.

aside from being a deathtrap, geo metros are decent enough econoboxes...you're not going to find a car that gets better mileage that isn't a hybrid, diesel, or one of those new-fangled dual-clutch autos...and even then, i'm betting the metro beats most of them

I'm sure you guys do drive like ass/assholes. It's just that nobody has told you guys yet, because your toolbag friends either drive bmws or they think your cool.


With that said I would I've to get a mid to late 90s BMW. Unfortunately I don't have the money for the maintenance, though buying it would be no problem.

On a scale of sterotypically bad drivers, BMW drivers aren't even in the top 5

Ahead of BMW drivers are at least (in no particular order)
-Teenage girls driving anything
-Small women driving SUV's
-Old Asian women driving anything
-Anyone driving anything with truck nutz
-Motorcycle drivers <30

to be fair I drove aggressively before I got a BMW. Now I'm just a little faster in my aggressiveness.


And if you think I'm driving like an "asshole" it's probably because you're in my way when I'm going somewhere.

If other drivers would be considerate and only use the passing lane for passing other cars quickly then they wouldn't get tailed.

Define "quickly." Drivers have every right to pass a slower car. Nobody should subject themselves to being stuck behind a slower car in order to stay out of your way. You don't own the fucking road, so crash into a ditch full of bleach and inhale. As frustrating it may be for you to have to slow down, the person who is actively passing another car is not doing anything wrong.

Now, if you want to bitch about them not getting back over when they're done passing the slower vehicle(s), or if they stay beside the car they were passing, then I could side with you. But if you want to bitch and be mad at the person in front of you because they're impeding on your ability to go excessively over the speed limit, you'll get no pity from me.

And if you tailgate me, I don't speed up. And if you get too close, I have the tendency to inexplicably slam on my brakes when someone crowds my back bumper.

It obviously depends a little on the context of the traffic and what time of day it is.

But if you're on i40 in the morning and can't be bothered to go 75 in moderate traffic or 80 in lighter traffic then you are the problem. Get over to the soccer mom lane and stay there.

It's not about "owning the road" if you are going slow in the fast lane then you aren't respecting my driving conditions so I don't respect yours.

When people pull this crap i have my own move where i pass you with half my car in the lane to your right and half my car in your lane. I don't have any patience for people who are willing to cause an accident because they are too womanly to go the speed of traffic. You are the one causing the problem by selecting the wrong lane.

I'd add taxi drivers to that list also.

If they are not going the speed of traffic then move to another lane and pass them. If all the other lanes are just as slow then it's not the speed of traffic, it's the speed you think traffic should be.

I rub my hands and cackle maniacally when I see face's doppelganger pulled over. Seeing them have to punch the brakes when passing on the right fails is fairly satisfying as well.

Mercedes drivers can be a little agro as well, but it's more frequently a crazy old bat with slow reaction times being inept as well as callous and foolhardy, which is a bit more alarming than cunts merely going 20-25 over and weaving.

I'm gonna get me an audi and be a classy old broad with the money I didnt have to give to lawyers by sticking to 10-12 over for the last few years and ceasing to shave 5 fucking minutes off my travel time by having my shit together and leaving 5 minutes earlier.

Douchey if you're the one in the way, doing something you shouldn't be (now, if you just moved over to the left lane, didn't cut anyone off, and are passing someone and about to move back over to the right, then that's different).

Oh, and hope your car doesn't have a crash data recorder.

Yep.

1. That's not how it's supposed to work, and that is more dangerous and less efficient for everyone. They need to get the fuck out of the passing lane if they aren't actively passing anyone.

2. It doesn't matter what the "speed of traffic" is; it matters how fast someone wants to go. That's why there's a passing lane.





I think that BMW is much more of a driver's car than any of their real competitors, and they tend to attract buyers who are at least casually familiar with and interested in driving. Coupled with the fact that BMWs offer way above-average vehicle performance to enable it, they tend to drive a little harder than your average clueless soccer mom in her SUV, and they tend (to a greater extent than average) to get rightly frustrated by people who have no idea what they are doing or aren't paying attention.

I know I'm a very courteous driver if you're doing what you're supposed to do (with respect to lane discipline or just in general). If you're fucking it up, well, then, fuck you.

No. That's why there's a speed limit. I'm not going to sit here and bitch about it because I drive over the speed limit too. But the only time I get on someone's ass is when they're going well below the speed limit. Otherwise, it would be me who is being the asshole. That's just the way it is. The road was not made for you. There are laws for a reason. If you want to break the law, that's fine. It's your own business. But other people are not the problem for following the law.

I hate BMW owners so bad that I actively fuck with them sometimes. If they're doing something really bad I will go out of my way to piss them off. Not to the point of being dangerous. But just thinking about how pissed off they are that they'll be 20 seconds late to whatever multi-billion dollar deal they are late for makes me so happy that I can't help myself. 75% of the time it is a BMW driver who runs red lights. If your friend is telling you a story about a douchebag driver, ask them if it was a BMW. It probably was.

You have gotta be fucking high. That's maybe a tertiary reason, at best, and in any case, they're outdated and too low.

slow traffic moving to the right and leaving passing lanes open isn't about speeding as much as it is about keeping traffic going, not creating rolling roadblocks that bunch up traffic, which are all ultimately about safety. It's much safer to allow traffic to flow than to bunch it up and cause passing on the right situations.

Common sense, no "i love to speed" bias involved
