The tax you pay on a gallon of gas will rise by 3.5 cents in California come July 1.

The state Board of Equalization voted 3-2 on Thursday to increase the excise tax about 10 percent, from 36 cents per gallon to 39.5 cents per gallon.

Story #8

I was biking to work yesterday. This Indian guy was doing like 65+ to make a light in a 45 mph. I crossed the street with enough room. Then the guy starts honking at me, for even trying it. I flipped him off. First time I’ve flipped off a car on a bike.

Story #7

So, on the way to work, this asshole was cutting everyone off and swerving in the lanes. When he almost crashed into me I honked at him, stupidass and THEN, he proceeds to keep doing more of the same to everyone so no one wanted to pass him.
and THEN, When I finally passed him he had the nerve to BLOW ME A KISS. OMFG I wanted to drag him out of the car and kick his ass. – Jenny @ Work

Gaming geeks may note the mean 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Halo 4 Edition shown here is not actually featured in the game, but that makes the 550-hp customized truck no less thrilling to experience and drive. We were recently invited to preview and actually drive the grand-prize truck for Microsoft’s Halo 4 Infinity Challenge, the construction and customization of which was done by Galpin Auto Sports in the Los Angeles neighborhood of North Hills.

2/14 – The more I drive, the more I see them. I was trying to park to pick up a pizza. But they just built some new restaurants that fill up the entire parking lot. I find someone leaving and give them some room and have my blinker on. This blonde bitch in a Toyota Celica GTS, goes between me and then takes the spot. I honked, and she just kept it anyway. So I was waiting for her to get out so I could yell at her. But she stayed in there forever. She wouldn’t even look out as I walked up to her car. I was wearing my work jacket so I couldn’t do anything too crazy. I had to park in the Handicap to get my pizza. If I got a ticket based on that, I would have been really mad. Then I come out and she’s gone. I couldn’t even yell at her. I hope she gets hers someday.

2/11 – We’re in our minivan and it’s pretty fast. I come up to a MUSTANG, which we all know are some of the douchest drivers. He’s going super slow but won’t get out of the way. So I get to the lane right of him, and go for the past. He speeds up so I can’t pass and purposely block me. Which is what happens in California all the time (so people don’t signal to defend). I get in behind him a second time. He starts braking on purpose and slowing down. So the dick wouldn’t go, won’t let me pass, and now is sticking it to me for TRYING TO GO AROUND HIS SLOW MUSCLE CAR. So I start making some motions to him which I can’t repeat anymore cuz they’re not P.C.. Then I went over 4 lanes to the right and got by him. What an asshole. I hate people who hog the road yet don’t let anyone else by. I shoulda gone around him crossing the carpool lane lines or something haha. So I defeated that piece of shit.

      Why?
      The way I see it, at least in Los Angeles (and San Diego--the other counties of California I've been in have it far less pronounced than these two), a lot of the problems seen on the roads can be attributed to a culture that places great value on speed. Essentially, people in L.A and S.D. are trained from an early age to have their gratification instant, and thus they never learn patience. This is why drivers will speed up to block you when you want to change lanes, this is why tailgating is so rampant, this is why they rarely ever come to a complete stop at stop signs, and this is why there's so much lane-weaving: These are drivers who want to go fast and see slowing down or stopping as an admission of inferiority. For the record, people blocking to stop me when I'm changing lanes is an extremely common occurrence that I figured out a good way to ensure you can get into the lane you need fairly quickly: As long as the traffic is not too congested, just slow down by about 5 miles per hour and get in behind them. The driver trying to block you is doing so either because they're not paying attention, or they cannot stand the thought of someone coming over in front of them. In both cases, they will gladly let you in behind them. (Congestion creates a problem because it means there will be someone else behind them who will think the same thing, and the person behind them likewise, and so forth.) It is an animal instict at work. For most creatures, seeing another creature with their back turned to them indicates the back-turned creature has superior authority. Likewise, a creature taking up a space behind another creature is an act of submission. For some reason, Californian drivers fall to these animal instincts and treat their cars as extensions of themselves. They don't want you getting into their lane in front of them because, subconsciously, they interpret it as you asserting authority over them, but they'll let you in behind them because they see it as you acknowledging their superiority. That's what I think.

      Why?
      That's exactly it. It's the attitude of it's ME me me and the whole world doesn't exist besides me.

      Why?
      California people tailgate because there's so many damn people, if you didn't, the line of cars would stretch from MEXICO to Oregon. They added 800,000 illegal alien drivers the other year. So that's why. As long as they are not crazy close which I define as you can't even see their headliights behind you. Otherwise, that's how close people drive in RUSH hour. Otherwise, in normal conditions, they're just tailgating and being aholes if it's not rush hour.

    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      The CORE reason that California drivers have become (Yes! They were once exemplary drivers!) the worst dang drivers in the country; ATTTITUDE! Many people in California have become extremely selfish, arrogant, rude, and just plain INCONSIDERATE. And it shows clearly in the way they drive. It is a "Me, me, me" attitude that explains why they tailgate and drive as fast as their vehicle will go, with no regard to the safety of themselves or others; they steal the legal right-of-way of as many other drivers that they can; and they will never lower their high-beams, no matter whom they blind! I was born and raised in California, and I used to love it. Now I cannot wait to leave!
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      It is the result of the pervasive entitlement attitude that has swept over California (I too am a native)! This selfish and inconsiderate attitude reflects clearly in the driving habits of so many people in California.
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      You are absolutely correct! I live here (in Calif) and I completely agree and sympathize with you!
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      The article fails to identify the CORE reason that California drivers have become (Yes! They were once exemplary drivers!) the worst dang drivers in the country; ATTTITUDE! Many people in California have become extremely selfish, arrogant, rude, and just plain INCONSIDERATE! And it shows clearly in the way they drive. It is a "Me, me, me" attitude that explains why they tailgate and drive as fast as their vehicle will go, with no regard to the safety of themselves or others; they steal the legal right-of-way of as many other drivers that they can; and they will never lower their high-beams, no matter whom they blind!

      Why?
      I'm a Brit and I've been saying this for years, now I find a whole website devoted to the subject. I feel vindicated! Having driven quite a lot of miles on the roads of about 28 US states, the moment you get into California everything changes! Anything goes on the roads there, you have to adopt a completely different style of driving just to accommodate their sheer lunacy! It's probably the stress of living in a sate where everyone likes to think they're a hippy when most of them are just a bunch of wage-slaves on the corporate merry-go-round!
    • Cam on:
      Why?
      I was born in Washington. WSP. I lived near Shelton. Near their police academy. They use Highland road to practice on speeders. They lowered the speed limit on the road to write tickets. If California is too lenient Washington is too strict. We moved to California. A much better place to live and drive. Washington is full of vindictive drivers. California is not. If you live in California do as the Romans. We adapted it works.

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
