Excessively cautious drivers and those that aren't focused on their driving, I'd say.

Here in MO, I really get peeved at those that piddle around on the on-ramp and try to merge into 70-75mph traffic at 40-50mph. That puts everyone else stacked up behind them in a bind as well. Couple that with those on the road that won't merge left to let others in and the potential for getting ran over becomes much greater. Merge space seems to be rather short at the end of most on-ramps here.

Two more interstate problems are;

Governored trucks that are set well below normal posted speed limits. They are notorious for blocking both lanes, which piles up traffic for miles, when they know they can't fully get around one another. Speed governors should be outlawed for motor carriers.

Much like some truckers, auto drivers that hang in the left lane with cruise control engaged. "Keep right, except to pass" should be federal law and come with a stiff fine for those that refuse to comply. Either back off and move over or gas it and get around. Hanging beside a truck is dangerous.

That's why I drive a Mustang. Whenever I get on an on ramp with 2 or more lanes I pass all the other cars on it.

I usually stick in the left lane when driving, but that's cause I'm passing all the other cars. But when someone is obviously speeding and comes up on my rear I move over and let them pass.

The merge is not my problem, the person is getting on the interstate. Speed up or yield like your supposed to. I do move over when i got the room but if i cant and the person gets mad, GOOD learn how to got damn drive onto the interstate. It aint my responsibility to move over. I can have all the room in the world and i still dont have to lose momentum just because a got damn 4 wheeler is lagging *** (=] just saying)

I hate when I'm on an onramp and the guy in front of me doesn't even give me space and there is a damn semi truck right next to me, they pretty much make me merge into the truck and there is someone behind me so I can't slow down to get behind it.

Then you do as I do. Be courteous. If you're the fastest thing around, stay out there. But when you're not, get out of the way at your earliest.

When to 18's top governers at the same place it hella annoying but funny at the same time. And yes some idiots dont know how to move over to the slow lane. Make us all look like rejects.

Couldnt of asked for a better example.

If fuel wasnt so damn expensive maybe companies wouldnt use governers but those ******** up top think its cute to tax the crap outta the most used fuel. Which in return powers ALL product transportation. Trucks, trains, boats. Fackin douch bags. Anything they eat, drive, wear etc got there by diesel power. This is why the system is a shizhole.

Now that we're on topic. Do truckers a favor and #1 dont tailgate, #2 dont pass then brake, #3 SPEED THE HELL UP when passing dont lally gag like a bit**. When you take your got damn time and make me slow down you make me wanna run your dumb *** off the road so you can learn, #4 dont cut off an 18. How moronic do you have to be to cut off a 40ton machine¿ ive never understood how people can be so ignorant, do you not know what 40 tons railing at 70+ can do to your tiny micromachine of a car¿ #5 pay attention to turn signals asshats. You see me half turn lane half straight lane and think im being stupid¿ no duck face i needa take a wide turn you come bucket, there xalled TURN SIGNALS for a reason and thats why i use em. For now looks like that is all =]

If I'm coming up on an on-ramp and someone is getting ready to merge, provided nobody is passing or beside me, I'll be courteous and move over. Many won't make the effort nowadays. IMO, that's rude and selfish. Those are the kind I make no special efforts to accomodate later on down the road. They shouldn't be too pissed if they receive doses of what they dish out. But most won't learn from that either. We're just supposed to alter our actions to ensure everything works out for THEM in their personal world.

One thing that should be changed is, on-ramp speed limits should be removed completely or match the interstate limit. All around here are 50mph. That puts us at 20mph below normal traffic flow. Of course, I'm usually a ball of fire when I come down the ramp to merge anyway. I look and choose an available right lane gap between vehicles (if there is one) and speed up to get in it, regardless of the ramp limit. Otherwise, I'll slow a bit to merge safely. But I don't drag *** all the way down the ramp and cause problems for eveyone else.

Right on
You don't have worry bout me on the truck thing!
I always pass them 80+mph till I'm at least 3/4 mile away.
Never tailgates truck before.
I understand how it feels, dumb bastard slapped on brakes in rain.
I was hauling *** on truck (heavy stuff) Truck wouldn't stop sliding even if I was about 5 cars space behind. (Not big truck type. Dodge truck hemi) was only going 45mph..

Good thing that car didn't call insurance. Because he knew he was at fault. Not me.
I had withness.

Oh yeah some people just dont give a damn. Dont get me wrong some ramps suck and you dont see the car till there right there, but that takes me back to there the ones that need to yield to interstate. I think all in all a whole lot of people need to lose their licenses and take the bus

You are totally an A+ driver in my book. dammit man i just dont inderstand how people can be so dumb. It amazes me sometimes. Dammit all to hell when people brake while hauling cattle. Those dumb homo sex orgy having steak giving patty slappin steers shift all their weight to the front and man oh man that feeling really seperates the men from the boys.

You are correct. The idiocy of some reflects negatively on you all. What makes it worse is, when they do finally get over, you roll up beside them and see a cellphone stuck to the side of their head or a mic in their hand and their lips are moving.

Yes, fuel cost is a negative for speed governor removal. But then in hilly country such as MO and others, do you really save that much fuel being restricted 5mph or more below the posted limit? I would think in some cases, downshifting and higher rpms, due to not being able to get over steep grades as economically as you may be able to ungovernored, consumes excess fuel too. But, I can see companies making overall fleet fuel consumption their priority, regardless of any one truck or specific region driven.

When you're driving on the Interstate and traffic backs up just after an exit you could have taken.

My philosophy is that you should merge from the onramp above the speed limit and then settle into a speed. Not merge right in front of a guy going 30mph faster than you.

Careful. I heard some big company truck are adding camera? Not sure if I'm right though.
I'm thinking about getting a gopro to prevent me from getting screwed by low lives like you can't work for your own damn money. My god.

Look at accident footage on YouTube. Most of it is in Russia. Most drivers carry dash cams to prevent insurance fraud cause it is real big over there haha they're smart

My philosophy is that you should merge from the onramp above the speed limit and then settle into a speed. Not merge right in front of a guy going 30mph faster than you.

That's what I usually do. When I merge, I'm usually on the north side of 75 or so.

Lol. I was simply stating the new American dream. Not mine personally.

I was, however, recently an eye witness to an 18 wheeler pit manuvering a rav4. His insurance quickly paid after my affidavit.

When your f*cking exhuast manifold stud snaps trying to put on an o/r h pipe in. And my dad is super pissed off at me bein a dick because "he told me it would happen" and no where in your town has any in stock so I have to sit and wait for one to ship.

I know haha. But now we can't even get the broken stud out. He even had to go buy carbon drill bits or something and it's not even making a dent. This is so irritating.

Did you try a tapper? I wanted to get some broken bolts out once and I got all my tools ready, bits, drill, tapper, etc and tapped on it once and the broken studs came loose and I took them off with my hand haha

I had something very similar to that happen to me when I was installing my h pipe on my 3.7. What year and model do you have? I ended up having the whole stud come out when only the nut was suppose to come off. I had to replace the stud BC I couldn't get the nut off of the stud. I actually broke a vice trying to separate them.

I have an 06. We were trying to get the nut off of it because it stripped. Then it snapped off inside. He's been trying to drill through it so he can put something in to back it out with, I'm not sure what they're called haha. But not even that is working.

Almost getting ran over by some dumb b!tch who ran a stop sign while I was going for my daily jog. Had to jump like 2 feet and the chick didn't even say anything, just sped off. Female drivers...not saying all are bad, but am saying MOST are.
