Every time I drive, I encounter someone who is doing one or more of the things listed below. This is why I hate driving during the day when everyone is out and about.

  • There is such thing as a turn signal. The reason cars have them is to warn people when you are turning, changing lanes and are about to cut me off.
  • When a green light turns yellow and you are in the point of no return (the point of the road when you should run the yellow), please do not slam on your brakes. If you are on the white line and slam on the brakes to stop for a yellow, I will hate you.
  • Turn right on red if there is not a sign saying you cannot!
  • You can get a ticket for going under the speed limit. Remember that.
  • Four way stop signs always go to the right. When the person on your left goes, you go next. Pay attention to that so we do not have to sit there for five minutes while everyone is trying to figure out who goes next.
  • Stay off of your phone. It is that simple.
  • Do not honk at me right when the light turns green. I promise you that I am in no rush and will sit at that light until it is red again. Then neither of us can go and it will be your fault.
  • Pay attention to the lines in parking lots and which way they go! If the diagonal lines are pointing towards you, you are going the right way. If they are pointing away from you, you need to turn around.
  • Do not tailgate me. I usually speed 10 mph over the limit anyway, but if you tailgate me, I will drop to 10 mph below the limit. Do not try me.
