What I hate about driving, especially on the highway, is a slow driver. They believe that driving 10-20 mph under the speed limit is being precautious, but they do fully not understand that slow driving can be dangerous. They are oblivious to the whole world around them, mainly because they care about only themselves and not the other drivers around them. It’s irritating when some idiot decides to drive slowly on the left lane of the highway. The left lane is designed for passing, not holding back traffic. That’s why the right lane is made for slower drivers. Slow drivers can make highways and road unsafe. Driving under the limit on the left lane can cause drivers to start tailgating and eventually road rage due to the slow driver. People have places to get to and when drivers are behind someone driving under the limit, it causes frustration and stress. I usually drive 5-10 MPH over the limit on the left lane of a highway because I go with the flow of the traffic; that’s how usually people drive now-a-days. It is ridiculous how slow drivers rarely get tickets for impeding traffic in the passing lane. What really gets me going in a two lane road is when the slower traffic ahead somehow teams up and decides to block traffic behind them. Since the two people ahead are driving the same speed limit, it is impossible to get ahead of them. I hate when people hit the brakes even though they are driving the speed limit when they see a police officer. I understand that mindset, but driving the speed limit will not hurt anyone, the police will not mind. Slow drivers, especially on the left lane, should be courteous and get out the way when there is a car approaching behind them.
