Flip-Flop bumper stickers. Completely irrational, and completely irritates the crap out of me.

The worst bumper stickers are the Jeep ones:
If You Can Read This, Flip Me Over
It's A Jeep Thing, You Wouldn't Understand
Don't Follow Me, You Won't Make It

If there ever was a *****bag detection indicator, these are at the top on the list.

I know I mentioned this probably halfway through this thread, but I'll include political bumper stickers on this too. I don't care who you voted for. Better yet, I don't care who you voted for two or three elections ago.

I can't stand the location bumper stickers. the ones that are 2 or 3 letters and then you're sitting there trying to figure out what the hell they're referring to and then maybe get a chance to get close enough to actually read it.

i think it's pretty much a certainty that if you have multiple bumper stickers, you are a horrible driver. much like if you drive a jeep, you drive like an a-hole.

I find that BMW and Audi drivers are pretty big a-holes.

I was cut off twice this morning by BMWs. I find them to be the worst drivers.

I am sure if there is a study, it will show that BMW owners are the worst. Actually maybe I saw one. I can't remember.

I work in a big corporate office, and the parking lot is probably about 1/5 Nissan Altimas. Just gives me this cookie-cutter person lifestyle that makes me cringe.

Not saying there's anything wrong with an Altima. But when they're all bunched up like that, it's some weird hive-mind robo-person jive I get from it.

I was guilty of having a heavy foot when I had my A4 only because it was real easy to get up to 70-80 and not realize how fast you were driving. I wasn't like the rest of the a-holes that liked to squeeze between two cars while dong 80 while cutting across two lanes. I wish nothing but 4 flats and a non-functional spare for those people.

i've never thought about it, but the BMW point is a good one. with them, you also get the loopy trophy wives who are too busy checking their make up to notice when the light turns green. you certainly won't find that kind of driver in a jeep.

I think you can usually make some safe assumptions about a person by what type of car they drive and how they drive it.

I have no problem with driving fast. I drive fast. But you can drive fast without being reckless and you can drive reckless without driving fast. It seems that you probably have a similar thought on the matter.

And how to do you drive it? Fast? Speed limit speed? Change lanes frequently? Do you park in the closest spot to the door of the store or away from vehicles at the end of the lot?

Range Rover drivers are also idiots, most likely due to what shmenguin mentioned about the trophy wives and such.

Saw a SUV the other day, on BOTH side windows he actually stickers that said "I don't care about your stick family." All across the back window he had a huge wrap of a horse.

Dude, my stick family doesn't care about your horse.

(for the record, I don't have a stick family on my car).

i don't categorically hate fast drivers (unless you're driving fast through a residential area - in which case, you're just a total peice of ****)

if you don't tailgate, weave, etc. and you're on the highway, go nuts.

10 over on the highway, usually left lane. Won't squeeze into a spot just for the sake of being close. Would rather park further to swing in and back out more easily.
