 Left Turn Lanes
Am I the only driver who understands the purpose of that middle lane on busy roadways? WTH?? And it's not just the senior citizens folks.

Drives me crazy - a car with just the front left tire over the line while the rest of us pile up behind it waiting for either a break in traffic or a reality check to hit.

Honestly.

The same folks who execute that maneuver are likely the ones who merge on the highway going 35 mph and hang out in the passing lane doing a cool 60.

Honestly, NH drivers make me insane...second only to ME in their oblivion.

Agreed. I'm a Masshole and expect others to drive like Massholes.

You wanna cut me off? Fine. Just friggin' step on it and go whenever you do.
You got in the wrong EZ Pass line? Deal with it
You missed your exit? Get off at the next one - don't drive in reverse down the shoulder

And if you are a moose with big antlers, please just stay the F off the road.

I call them suicide lanes. I have learned to use them as both left turn lanes and how to merge on the far lane coming from a side street. Love em and hate them. Dangerous as all get out.

Ooooo, left turns. Another pet peeve I could go on forever about!

Suffice to say I feel like 95% (or more) of the population does not understand how to take a left turn. I've lost track of how many times I'm sitting in the left lane at a traffic light, and I almost lose the front of my car to some idiot who started their turn left onto the street I'm on from behind their stop line and so barely clears my stopped car. Pull out a ways before starting the turn folks, it's driving 101!

HA HA. I KNEW it couldn't be just me. Where are you guys when this is going on? At least we could exchange righteous glances when surrounded by the less enlightened. :lol:
