CR-V- yep, drive normal. It's a dog, and I usually have the fam with me.

MS3- well....I use the power when I want/need to. Slow vehicles in the passing lane? kick to 4th, buzz by in the right lane, cut 'em off back into the left lane. No sense in being nice about it, far too many people here from the midwest, where apparently passing lane laws aren't in effect. Just this morning on the way to work, lady doing 45mph onto the interstate in a new minivan. Buzz by her once on the interstate and stop accelerating at like 73, she looked like she was standing still. Hello ******* people, it's an INTERSTATE, the speed limit is ******* 70, not 35. Get with it or get the **** off the road.........I have places to go!

I drive 25 in 30s in residential neighborhoods; you never know when some 3 year old kid is going to run into the street chasing his ball or whatever. People who speed in residential areas are some of the few people who really get to me. It takes a lot to **** me off, but speeding in a residential is one of those things that absolutely will.

I drive like a sally. Fuel costs too much to drive like an asshat now, and its only supposed to go up. Ride too close, and you'll see how good your brakes really are. They call it the hammer lane for a reason. Put the hammer down, or get out of the way.

I don't see the point of brake checking - if they're not paying attention or don't react quickly enough, then you're both going off the road. If you get tapped in the back at 50, you're pretty fucked. Usually turning around and waving or something is enough, and if it's not, just pull over and let them pass.

Being an ******* to someone who's being an ******* themselves is only going to exacerbate the situation. There is no point in re-inforcing the point that someone is being an ******* - if they're being an *******, they know they're being an ******* (With the exception of very, very few cases). They're not going to stop being an ******* because you are an ******* to them.

I don't give a **** about children but I don't want to go to jail. I drive slowly in residential neighborhoods too. I also hate it when people blast by my place at WOT.

I plan to do my first HPDE in July. Hopefully regular track driving will partially satiate my need for speed.

Huh?? So you'd be ok with hitting/running over/killing kids as long as you didn't get caught and/or go to jail??!!??

I'm hoping I misunderstood you...

I drive slow until I get on some crazy back roads then its on like donkey kong. On the highway I do about 80 mph all the time and when I have a full car of people on the way to Hyperfest I like to pull smoky hole shots for no reason and do some hill jumps just for good fun.

Really if you are in the left lane not going fast enough to pass someone get out of it and stay out I hate that ****.

I drive a hillbilly jeep and a Miata that needs a new rear bumper. I don't do it to the point of no return, just a gentle warning. In 9 years of driving, I've never had an accident.

Awww **** did I offend someone again? My personal system of ethics and beliefs about the sanctity or lack of sanctity of life is none of your business. You should only give a **** about how I directly interact with you and society.

Would you rather I say "I love babies" and then mow them down? I have a selfish interest in avoiding that situation and the potential consequences. There is nothing wrong with selfish motivation. In fact, that is how the world works and it is the only motivation for anyone's actions. If you are a "patriot" then you should support my right to believe whatever the **** I want. I though that the USA society (law and enforcement) is only supposed to step in when our actions, not our beliefs violate laws?

@Fae: I think I remember having an argument with you where you said something to the effect of "I don't like it when innocent people get shot bla bla bla..." pertaining to war. Did your morals change since then, or have you always been pro-manslaughter? Or are you OK with killing as long as it isn't done with a gun? Or maybe I'm thinking of somebody else.

I have this tendency to stare people down hard as I pass them on the right and if they can't figure out they need to not be in the left lane I will:

get in front of them
drop it down a gear
slow till they gtfo of the left lane
then I continue onward knowing that person won't be in everybody elses way

Works better than yelling, beeping, spraying, or flipping them off. I did a 4300 mile trip a couple weeks ago and that worked every time.
