Aloha Friday #222

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

So my question is . . .

What is your pet peeve in traffic?

For me, it’s when my lane is ending and I have no choice but to merge into the next lane and the other driver speeds up so I can’t get in.

    Oh gosh, we were just talking about this on facebook… my most annoying one is when there’s construction or a lane is being lost for some reason… there are a bazillion signs to get over and some arrogant people think they don’t apply to them so they just zip by and try to get over at the last second and save themselves some time. I just love it when no one will make a space for them!

    My pet peeve in traffic? OH MY GOSH HOW MUCH TIME YOU HAVE? So many things aggrivate me in traffic. Well, people who don’t put on the their signals or they put it on the last minute. People who drive too slow like if the speed limit is 50 & their driving 30. Well guess I’ll stop there. Gee looks like you & me are the only ones ready for tomorrow. LOL I’ve been to five Posts & no one had theirs up for tomorrow yet! Oh well, you have a great weekend, and that was a great question!

    Just today a young girl was texting and driving and almost hit me!!

    When you let someone in your lane and they don’t wave to say “thank you.”

    Toss up between people who don’t give me the courtesy wave when I let them in and people who just bulldoze their way into whatever lane they want – no signal!

    When there is traffic due to the fact that there was an accident and everyone wants to see what happened…

    Ordinarily I’m pretty cool behind the wheel, but when someone gets mad at someone it’s really annoying to see someone flip you off. So childish. Get over it people or when someone changes lanes with out using their blinkers. Have a good weekend.

    Impatient drivers that turn in front of pedestrians crossing the street.

    People who are in such a rush that they cut in front of a car to get to an exit faster.

    Texting and driving; not using turn signal; someone following me too closely.

    Pet peeves are people that do not use turn signals, cut in front of others without waiting, and when you see them illegally talking on cell phones.

    Tailgaters on a country road – especially when I’m going above the speed limit already…I usually slow down to the exact speed limit and set my cruise control – if they’re gonna ride my bumper, I’m certainly not going to speed up for them! :) Oh, and people who are using their cell phones – especially when they’re texting and driving.

    I think for me it’s people who drive more than 15 mph below the speed limit in perfect weather conditions. Drives me crazy!

    Just one pet peeve? LOL. Tailgaters. Honestly, if they think I am going that slow then pass me.

    Debbie says:

    Those who don’t use blinkers/turn signals. Drives me nuts!!

    When the jackass in the fancy sports car cuts across three lanes of traffic to take the exit. And he’s always speeding and never uses a blinker. Or the guy who just has to be the fastest and changes from lane to lane to lane trying to get ahead of everybody else. I laugh when he gets stuck behind a slow car and can’t get around on either side.

    Pet peeve? As in singular? I think they could be summed up by saying that it’s my pet peeve that there are other drivers on the road at all. It would be so much easier if I was the only one. :)

    People who wait until the last minute to merge and then cause a huge traffic jam — sigh!

    Thanks for hosting!

    Bumper huggers. I want a sign in my car that I can hold up that says “Back it up Bud!”

    Drivers tailgating me or not giving way.

    the fact that others get so frustrated

    When people don’t use their signals when changing lanes.

    besides the fact that “Traffic” is a pet peeve?
    Well, when I drive the Interstate 84 – there is rarely much traffic, so I really get peeved by people who come up behind me and ride my tail, and then pass me and swerve over immediately leaving little room between us. Here we are going 70 mph down the highway, four lane, not another car in sight —

    The only thing worse is when the driver also slows down. Grrrr
