    ....do you cut drivers any slack if they have stickers or logos on their car that are from things you support?.....such as a Human Right equal sign, or some political thing, or your Alma mater or some club.......icon_cool.gif

    I get the feeling having a Virginia tag just makes one a target of hate no sooner than you drive into Maryland or DC because of the infamous reputation we have of being extremely aggressive drivers, lol. Not a day goes by without DC or Maryland drivers complaining about Virginia drivers icon_rolleyes.gif

    Only in Minnesota do people ride on my ass, and with their brights on. I have had no issues with this driving in Texas nor in South Dakota even in spite of my HRC sticker. However, I've heard that when my sis drove my cousin's car (registered in a very rural county in South Dakota) people backed off, so I'm thinking about registering my next car in that same county for that reason. I need to breathe, people.

    I'm guessing they have license plates with the county name on them or something?

    I despise crappy drivers no matter what they support.

    I pass things I can't see through. Nothing personal.

    But, I could see how an NRA sticker and a gun rack might be handy.

    What, politically correct driving?

    "It's OK officer. She mowed down six pedestrians, but she was displaying a share the road bumper sticker!"

    "Well all right then."

    I don't take out my anger on other drivers. They eventually get what is coming.

    They're numbered in South Dakota. Iowa has the county names on them. But I wonder if it's because of the sticker or because Minnesota has so many shitty drivers on the road. Either way- I'm convinced that Texas has better drivers at this point.

    LOL, I used to give a wide margin to kids driving cars with plates from remote counties in Idaho. You could bet that it was probably the first time they'd ever seen a 4-lane highway.

    Greatest lesson I learned from my dad

    "drive with courtesy. Don't piss them off an motivate them to follow you. Eventually, you have to get out of the car."

    Wonder why he knew that...icon_eek.gif

    Haha- I give anybody from South Dakota space whenever they go northbound to a twins game along 169 (since ya know- the only good thing in Minneapolis is the twins and the vikings.) because 4/5 of the time they go 75 in a 65, but if I see a truck with SD plates and a marine sticker, I'm like "semper fuck no". Not because I disrespect his service, but because my experience with "hypermasculine" people on the road has been no bueno.

    I think he's trying to fool us into admitting we are shitty drivers. Because everybody knows us girls don't know how to drive. icon_razz.gif

    ah, I see.

    In oregon we just bitch about california drivers. when californians decide they're tired of living in their bankrupt/crime-filled/kardashian-obsessed state they move to oregon or washington and bring their wonderful driving skills with them. these skills include things like changing lanes without signalling, refusing to allow a lane-changer into their own lane, turning *into* the center turning lane from a driveway, tailgating people who are already driving well over the speed limit, etc.

    I actually think philly is more pleasant to drive in than portland because even though people do illegal things very frequently, it seems like everyone is paying closer attention to what's going on around them, so it kind of works.

    You're preaching to the choir here, my friend. Even these rural folk do the same thing. For example, I was en route from Mankato to Minneapolis on a 4 lane highway one day and half-way between there, I was entering a town and on the road were two SUV-sized vehicles. They both saw me and a long line of cars coming but both decided to turn. One decided to go into the proper lane (the right lane), and the other decided to go into my lane (the left lane). I wanted to cut a bitch, needless to say.

    I learn to pay agressive drivers no mind, better them wasting their gas monies on slamming on the accelerator than me speeding up because they rush everywhere.

    Why do they have to let you merge in front of them if all you want to do is obstruct traffic flow in the passing lane? Again, if your vehicle blocks my view of brake lights in front of you, you will not be in front of me for very long.

    If you aren't intending to keep within two car lengths of the vehicle in front of you, you are impeding traffic regardless of limit or speed and people WILL pass you, regardless of state they are from..

    Drivers who haven't had brown-trouser training around LA are attracted to empty space on the left lane like bugs to a bug-zapper and they will cut in front of you...then slow down... Passing lanes are perfect for WA state drivers to steer with their knees while texting, facebooking, smacking the kids around in the back seat, applying makeup, and in one case, getting blown by the passenger.

    Every state I've lived in has a law "slower traffic keep right except to pass".

    WA state cops are too busy giving tickets out for going 70 on I5 to do anything about it.

    Stickers on their car do not make a difference. As I've aged, however, I've learned to be more patient with those who are clearly doing something in error and don't realize it and just give them enough a toot say I'm here, don't come over into my lane. Those that are cutting me off just to get ahead or severely tailgating, they still may get a long honk and a finger. Living here in Detroit on the border with a lot of Canadians coming over and part time in Palm Springs with a lot of Canadian tourists, I give them a break. They're bad drivers and just can't help it and I would be laying on my horn all day long.
