let me clarify. Coming to a stop at the yield sign when you have another 50 feet of merging lane beyond the sign, aka treating a yield sign as a stop sign. Plenty of room to get up to the speed of traffic, use it.

Conversely, there are also those who are already on the highway and abruptly slow down to an unsafe speed to let someone else merge onto the highway instead of speeding up like they should. It creates confusion and it's a good way to get rear ended. Every girlfriend I've had has done this move and it makes me cringe if I'm in the car with them.

+1, +1.

I'm to the point where If me and some friends are going somewhere, I just take my own car. I hate riding with dumbasses that can't drive. I'm not putting my life at risk any more than necessary. Plus it spares me the headache.

Im surprised its legal to pass someone over a double yellow line in pennsylvania, didn't know at all. Amish buggies are one thing but annoying motorists I usually just wait until the next passing zone, but with my luck I'd get pulled over the one day I go for it.

MF at its best:
Please keep the personal remarks out of this thread and stick to discussing the topic or this thread will be shut down. It's already marginal.

This is the last post, and the thread is closed.

Actually I had posted after that... "OOOHHH, It would be tragic if this thread were to be closed..." <- Obviously hit with the moderator delete stick. That woman has a serious bug up her ***.

She should drop the top from her name... RagGirl is more like it.
