“Consumer Reports” just released a new survey where people ranked the most annoying things other drivers do on a scale of one to 10. And the most annoying behavior is . . . texting while driving.  It got an average score of 8.9 out of 10.  That puts it just ahead of able-bodied people parking in handicapped spots, which got an 8.7.

We’ve made another list!  Men’s Magazine put out a list that has the TOP 100 DRIVERS IN THE COUNTRY.  We suck.  We came in at an F grade and ranked at….#100!  HUZZAH!  That reminded us of this study.  CHECK OUT THE FULL LIST HERE. 

Here is the Consumer Report article Woody found…The least annoying thing was people who crank the volume on their radio too high only averaged a 5.7 out of 10 for annoyingness.  So, turn it up.

  1. people who drive with their brights on for some unknown reason and proceed to ride your ass!

  2. Tom says:

    2 of them. #1 During rush hour, do you really think its faster to clog up my side streets, than for you to just stay on the high way?!? #2, when i’m riding my motorcycle, don’t try and police me. Don’t worry about how fast I’m going, don’t worry about anything I’m doing. The worst thing you can do is slam on your brakes because you think I’m going too fast. Just remember, if we crash, 200$ at the body shop for you, 20,000$ at the hospital for me

    • Angie says:

      #1 Yeah, it sometimes is faster to take the side streets or back roads instead of the high way. #2 Stop driving like an ass and you won’t have to worry about paying $20,000 for a hospital stay…it’s jack asses like you who cause accidents on the highways that make people take “your” side streets because it’s faster!

  3. Dave says:

    Number 1 on my list: Drivers (and passengers) who throw cigarette butts out the window. If I was a cop, I’d ticket them every time for littering. Have you ever looked at the ground at an intersection? It is generally a toxic waste dump. And the solution is SO easy – just keep a plastic soda bottle 1/3 full of water and throw them in there. When it gets full, put it in the trash.

  4. TravisRL says:

    People who ignore miles of “lane closed” signs and then try to cut in at the front of the line.
