The turn lane is your friend!

OK, so I have to write about this, so it doesn't drive me crazy! The turn lane is your friend! Use it! If there is a left turn lane, that is for you to get in before you turn, even before you slow down. It is really annoying when people slow way down in the regular lane and make everyone behind them have to slow down too. Use your turn lane to slow down in. Get over, brake, turn- in that order. The same goes for right shoulders. If there is one, then use it to slow down in when turning right (unless you live in Louisianna, bc I think it's against the law there). This is considerate of other drivers. Leave a comment if you have a driving pet-peeve. Thanks!

When the light is red and I'm trying to turn right, but there's someone in the right lane ahead of me going straight. I understand that this can't be avoided sometimes, but when there isn't much traffic and there are 1-2 other open lanes, this really upsets me.

Also, people who drive very fast and change lanes a lot actually anger me. When I encounter one of these drivers, I actually feel a rage rising up inside of me that I didn't know was there.

My biggest pet peeves are people who insist on driving in the left lane five to ten miles below the speed limit. If you're slower than the rest of the traffic, move over! My other pet peeve is drivers who insist on coming to an almost complete stop to make a right turn. The car does have to be moving in order to turn. Hi Deann!!
