This is just a rant because i almost just got killed by a retarded high-school driver. I will admit i am 18 years old myself but i have never gotten a speeding ticket or have been involved in a accident that was my fault. So i am turning left onto a major street from a local gym here in phoenix. It was rush-hour and it can take up to 5 minutes for both directions to be clear to turn left. Okay, so i am sitting here waiting to turn. It has been just about 5 minutes when the car behind me decides to pull up to my right. I figure, these guys are going to turn right and have just bailed on turning left. Finally i see an opening. I start to go and wouldn't do you know it, the idiot to the right of me has decided to turn left as well. I guess my left turn skills where not sufficient for this guy. I am completely cut off by him and pushed into oncoming traffic. I managed to maneuver my vehicle behind this idiot as i caught it out of the corner of my eye. I still can't believe it. The kid could have killed me. Just a rant. Drive safe, have fun, and happy flying.

Why are some teenage drivers so bad at driving?
Because so many of them are not only young and inexperienced, but young and foolish as well. All too common these days.

Sure it wasn't me?

LoL... I'm on the opposite side of boat...

It drives me insane when people take FOR-EVER to make a decision when there driving---

I have done that same thing...

I'm 20 --- No accidents period- No tickets either....

Let me guess---- You are also the guy that drives the speed limit or Slower in the left lane and think your doing nothing wrong.

but ya- the guy was a jerk for cutting you off--- But perhaps he got tired of waiting

The thing that upsets me the most about "those" moments is that the other driver thinks hes done nothing wrong,and that its your fault...

some people never learn that cars are weapons until something bad happens,and even then,they dont care...my favorite act of stupidity is when people pass you on the left,while your in the fast lane. I ALMOST wish when that guy pulled back outa the grass and onto the road he would of lost control (he was doing at least 75)..but nope,I dont let those people get to me

I got rear ended on my motorcycle by a 17 year old girl on a quiet 35 mph street. She was on her cell, drinking coffee and smoking a cig. knocked me into someone's front yard. To her credit she did stop.

The police report had her explanation as "He was in the way and I was late"

Actually, no. I almost always slightly above the speed limit. I never go above 10 over. Generally go the flow of traffic. I am a very aware what is going on around me.

I've always thought of driving like playing chess. Always think at least 6 moves ahead.

Perhaps they are not taking forever to make a decision... maybe they are waiting for a safe opportunity to enter the flow of traffic.
But perhaps he got tired of waiting
Impatience and safety are not compatible.

Everyone thinks they are an above average driver. This is statistically impossible.

Whats really an eye opener is when you drive a 45ft RV weighing 65000 lbs. I had a woman pull out in front of me at a set of lights. She was going through red and and I was coming at her at 50mph, she dribbled out yakking on her phone. How I missed her I dont know. She blew her horn at me when she passed me

Then there's the 65mph middle lane driver with the 16 wheeler 6" from their rear bumper trying to pass

My real favorite is when I try and get out of my place through some lights. I have to turn right and its a very tight turn so I indicate right and swing into the left lane. There is no left turn so it should be obvious somethings happening. Then they try and over take me on the right while I try and TURN RIGHT!

I dont slow down or give them room. Watching them going over the kerbs at 40mph and trying to turn the corner is hilarious

and you know what is scary? You have the same left hand driver idiots flying full size airplanes on the weekend doing stupid things in the pattern. I feel safer with teen pilots who are aware of their surroundings in the air as opposed to Sunday flyers.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

That's a good way to die young should you choose the wrong driver to harass.

Down here we call them "Left Lane Bandits" I used to get all upset but now I just let stuff roll off me. No sense and getting yourself all worked up over something they did. It is not going to get them back or anything. One thing that really gets me is spiteful and vengeful driving. So you got cut off? Dont be an idiot and do something out of spite that could very well cause an accident. Example: When someone passes another person and that person gets offended and decides to speed up and not allow the passing driver to complete the pass and get out of oncoming traffic. Stupid! Ok I am done now.

My big gripe was the idiots that drive the honda cars think they can pass my peterbilt up on the freeway just to turn off the freeway after passing me and wonder why I am clibing up thier assend when they slam on thier brakes at 60 mph. Seems most fools in thier cars dont understand you can not slow down or stop 80k at 60mph in 200 feet. Or the fool in his little tin can car that gets inbetween the rig and the curb making a right hand turn when I am makeing a right hand turn and wonder why I cant see them while they are in my blind spot and drive over thier hoods. Stupid aholes.
I get in front of them and slow down to 55-60 mph and laugh when they get pissed.When they try and pass me I speed up and start rolling when they get back over (behind me) cause I slow back down.
Have had that happen many times speed limit is 55 for trucks here in cali in the right hand lane have fools pass you up get in front then slow way down 40 35 on the freeway go to pass them they speed up. Then they wonder why they get rigs running thier tailends just waiting to make a road pizza out of the fool in the car. As gimbal said good way to get killed. What you are doing is a act of rode rage and very stupid on your part and it dont matter if the truck is in the center lane or in the left lane what your doing is against the law and stupid.
