    The very first question when I told someone irl was "California plates?" when I said no, "Texas?" Both were WA, and one was a woman (?!)

    I too take a beat before entering certain intersections known for 'very stale yellow' runners. The going east 542 guy was preceded by two yellow-to-red gunners, so really three people ran that light.

    I did a legal uturn on a green arrow. A guy made a right on red at the same time into the same lane. I defensively yielded and let him go ahead, and he flipped me off. If I didn’t have my kids in the back I was going to roll up next to him at the next light and politely ask him if he understood how stop lights work.

    Driving back from socal on I5, a fair number of trucks. People get in the left lane to pass the trucks. Every single time there are a handful of people who pull out of the left lane, pass a car or two, and force back in. To move up a couple of cars. Why? That's something that's always happened but I've never seen so many people do it so aggressively.

    I am noticing most drivers nowadays were not taught etiquette regarding the use of brights at night. People just do not give a f**k anymore.

    If you can see taillights of the car in front of you, you should not have your brights on. Yes, even on county roads. This seems lost on most people now. Irritating af.

    Classic 5 move there. Very frustrating to switch lanes.

    I can see your tail lights over a mile away. I'd like to see that deer that decided to cross.

    High beams are fine up until 100m overtaking and 300m closing IMO.

    The problem is people are putting in lowbeams that are brighter than my factory highbeams.

    "TURN ON YOUR FUCKING LIGHTS!" is a popular theme on my town's reddit sub. "and turn off your high beams" is always in the replies.

    and this

    Also: turn off all your fucking fog lights and light bars that are brighter than the goddam sun.

    re: fog lights, if they're in the eyes of oncoming drivers, they're aimed wrong, have the wrong beam pattern, or both.

    High correlation between quantity of garbage aftermarket lighting and volume of air breathed by mouth.
