I wonder how you would feel if you were stopped behind 20 cyclists who each fully stopped in turn and proceeded through the intersection one at a time while also waiting for the traffic to clear.

I also wonder is you come to a complete stop at every stop sign. Complete means locking your breaks—not just going really slow. I wonder, too, if you use your turn signals properly by notifying others before you start to slow down and not just as you are rounding the corner or after you are already in the turn lane when everyone can see that you are turning.

If you’re not like most people, and almost everyone violates those rules, then my hat’s off to you. You are a rare bird indeed. But you would still hate it if you got stuck behind a group of cyclists who came to complete stops and crossed the road just one at a time.

Remember the old saying: “Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.”

1.Golf cart drivers with knees spread wide apart. Gender identity very noticeable, also Naked chests. Some things cannot be unseen and distractions.
2. Dogs leaping from golf carts or tethered running along side the vehicle.
3. The piggybacking cars through the gates! Use your card or finger please. I just might have to stop short for the rabbit.

I am one of those rare birds who do complete stops even when it's obvious no one is near. I got stopped by a cop for not making a full stop at Rio Grande and Del Mar and I am forever changed. I think there should be a major police blitz for golf cart infractions. It is so over the top ridiculous how lax we take the safety rules on the road here.

You have to use the other lane anyway, so what difference does it make?

Believe me. Cyclists know far more about the rules than you do.

Default My peeve..

I can’t believe I read all of these and didn’t see my pet peeve! Over and Over, I have golf carts pull out right in front of me (while I’m driving a car), because they want to pass a bicycle in the cart lane! I have to slam on my brakes to avoid smashing into them. 😡

Husband said to add...people who drive in cars or carts with little dogs on their laps!

Totally agree on this one, especially about tinted windshields. We know they are only trying to be polite, but they don’t realize it is dangerous.

Obviously they are from out-of-state. LOL

People who throw their cigarette butts out the window
Drivers that drive in the passing lane, holding up traffic happen 24/7 on 466
Drivers that drive right next to you side by side.....if you have to change lane quick you have no where to go
People in parking lot just step off the curb, stupid crazy
Drivers that enter the left turning lane every where except at the beginning
Slow right hand turners
Will never understand bicyclist that ride on fast busy roads when there are thousands of other places to ride
Drivers that don’t understand your car has a horn for a reason 😂🤣😂🤣😂

I seem to remember that the signs near the entrances to TV say that it’s 20 unless posted otherwise.

Putting out no pee- no poop signs and neighbors still use your lawn. They don't respect your property and think you dont see them using your lawn!

3. Stopping your car to let golf carts cross the road. Its very dangerous and very annoying as cars have the right of way and could easily cause an accident.

What are yours?
People who complain about other people’s driving, and they do all of these things too.

Idiots who don't use turn signals, whether it be golf carts or automobiles.

Golf carts drivers who forget to turn OFF their turn signals.

People who don’t anticipate what lane they need to be in before they enter a roundabout or who stop at the entrance of a roundabout when there is no car coming or if it is far away. That said, I’m amazed by how many people DO do it right.

That said, there seems to be a lot of road rage here. I’ve seen a number of drivers flipping the bird to other drivers. I did that once in California in 1979 and a guy jammed on his brakes and came at me with a tire iron! You would think we’d all relax and be more patient, but I’m still on northern time, too. I admit to being impatient. Perhaps that will change.
