Top Other Enemies

I’ve been kinda avoiding making this page, because it may seem like some sort of Nazi page, but it must be made. I have to say what other people won’t.

This is my personal list and it may just be where I live (Southern California) Below is most certainly stereo types, and obviously doesn’t refer to EVERY person of any of the below groups. But they are general trends I’ve noticed when looking at a particular group over all.

#1 – Old People

I seriously doubt anyone has more experience driving with/against old people than I do. I started Driving in Hemet, California. Hemet is made up of 60-80% people over 55. A random survey of people entering a grocery store on the day I moved there was 98/100 of them were old people. I’ve spend years and years
driving around them and I believe I’m qualified to make my judgements.

First, we can’t just say take all the old people off the road. They need to get around too, and buses probably aren’t the best for that. We don’t want to get old and lose our cars just because we become old. But what SHOULD happen is driving should be taken away if people at that age, or any age or not skilled enough to drive safely anymore. Unfortunately this does NOT happen in California, and probably no where else either. On the day of my driving test, I was watching an old lady to the sight test. (The Giant E thing). Even with her glasses on, she couldn’t read past the 2nd line. But did that stop her from getting her license, they said good enough, and let her slide. I couldn’t even believe it. Maybe it’s not like that everywhere but it certainly is that way around me. I see people driving every day that obviously have no clue what’s going on, it’s like they are riding a bronco and they are trying their best to keep control of their car.

Old People drive Erratically

The biggest problem I’ve noticed with old people is you have no idea what they are going to do. They seem to do all these totally unexpected things and that is what makes them the most dangerous drivers in my book.

Old People drive slow

Old people drive slow. Overall, old people drive at incredibly slow speeds (usually right below the speed limit). When you get in front of a slow driver, quite often for me it’s an old person. But once I actually had an Old lady try to Drag race me. I beat her, but she made a nice try, I was impressed 🙂

Old People have really bad situational awareness

Overall I’d say old people seem to have a really bad idea of what is going on around them. It’s like they are doing their own thing and we’re just in an
other world or something. That is why you see them in the fast lane with people flying around them +30 mph their speed, see them entering the freeway at
45 mph. Yet another thing I see them do connected to this, is cut me off via changing lanes or turning onto a road in front of me when I’m driving
really fast (and them slow)

I kid you not, when I used to drive to work in Hemet, all summer. I had an old person try to ram my car at 3-5 times a week. I would have to dodge their car. They would turn in front of me when I was cruising along or cut me off by changing lanes, but it always happened, and it was 98/100 an old
person.

Here is another example, at my Junior High, there was this old lady (well over 90) that drove a Pinto with a roof rack. And she would go around telling people that the roof rack keeps the aliens from landing on her car. She was serious too. They let those people drive?

This isn’t everyone

I’m not saying everyone who is old does these things, but if you were to make a check of all drivers over 55, I believe you would see the majority are more prone to do one or more of these things regularly. That’s just the way it is. Our bodies get old and our reactions get worse, and we aren’t able to do things as well as when we were younger. I mean my dad is 55, but he drives fine.

Old people seem to have different attitudes toward driving that we do. I believe they think the rest of us are a bunch of dangerous drivers or something, and they
are doing right by driving under the speed limit and so on. Legally they would be correct of course, but in practice, forget it.

Just try passing an old person on a two lane road (even when it’s a dotted line) and watch them. I can’t tell you how many times, they flashed their hi-beams at me. They are mad that I passed them. Even tho it was a perfectly legal pass. They seem to think it was dangerous or something. This doesn’t happen every time of course, but the majority of the time people do that to me it’s old people. The counter move to that of course is the braketo the face.

Just comparing Hemet to Irvine, you can see an obvious difference. The minimum speed limit through Irvine is usually 50-55, and people travel 65-80+ through
town, while I rarely see anyone break 50 in Hemet. Old people compared to a majority of younger people.

#2 – Car Phone People

Does this sound familiar? You see a car hogging the fast lane or left lane, go around them, only to find them yacking on their car phone as if
you and everyone didn’t exist? I hate those bitches.

#3 – Gangsters

The next group on my list is gangsters. We are talking talking the Gun carrying gangsters you see on the rap videos. Normally they are not that bad of a group to drive around provided you don’t piss them off. But they are #2, because they are quite often armed, and the littlest thing can set them off. You do not want to screw with these people. Comparing LA, to San Francisco/Oakland gangsters. I’d say I have more problem with Black drivers, as opposed to Mexican drivers (not necessary gangsters). One one Trip to Oakland/San Fran. I had 10 people viciously cut me off, to the point where I had to swerve to avoid them. 5 were female, 5 were male, all 10 were black. No Joke. I rarely seem to have problems with the Mexican gangsters. They usually seem to stick to the middle lanes and leave me alone. I’m not saying I don’t run into problems but it’s rare. But if you see these people, don’t screw with them.

#4 – Hill Billy Rednecks

You know what I’m talking about. All 4 years of my college life, I was living in the country or around it and I got plenty of opportunity to be around the Hill
Billy. The Giant trucks (just short of being semis) with the gun racks.

What I notice with these people is they love driving incredibly slow. It’s like their life is so laid back, they don’t have to be anywhere at any fast pace. I mean it’s not like they are late to the bar. And they get really pissed when you pass them. They also hate being tailgated so I rarely do it. One time I wasn’t even tailgating a guy, just hanging back a ways, and at a stop sign, Billy Joe Bob gets out of his truck and starts yelling at me “back TF off!” Whatever. This is another group I try not to screw with because they may have a gun, and usually they aren’t afraid to fight. For all I know, they are on their way to the bar so they can fight 🙂

The Alternative to these type of people are usually the good old boys in the Amercian Hot rods (Chevy or Fords), but the problem with these people is they are usually just as slow on the roads, but they dust you in town at the lights.

#5 – Cops

Why isn’t cops #1? Cops don’t try to ram you (unless you’re running from them), Cops don’t usually try to shoot at you or beat you up. (if you’re white anyway).
The worst I see out of a cop is a ticket, so they are much lower on the list than those other people. I mean even cops drive faster than old people 🙂

#6 – Zoners

People from Arizona. Man it’s like when they get to California, they have no idea how to deal with real traffic. I’m always yelling: “You damn Zoner!” Welcome to California! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

    The last comment I post here was an accident in the wrong spot, please delete.

    Anyway, about Arizona drivers. These guys are really aggressive in Arizona. They will run a stop sign and honk at you like it’s your fault. They will do everything they can to keep you from merging onto a freeway and then make fun of you if they see you struggling.

    Even the pedestrians are aggressive. They jaywalk and then yell at you when you slow and stop for them jaywalking like it’s your fault for driving correctly.

      So true!

      Why?
      They are the dumbest people in the ENTIRE world, and I have been all over the world. The driving is derived from a lawless state and group of people who watch politicians have no rules and laws, so therefore they follow suit, which so happens to be "Follow the leader" which is a whole other problem of unoriginal thoughts that these mindless zombies have. But here is the real problem... the want-to-be utopian nature of everything, from the "yoga" to the "eco friendly" to the "lgbt" to the "rainbow parade" and the list goes on and on and on where they can find any reason to micromanage and control your daily life through the brainwash that turned them into the "Let's turn you into an idiot too" mentality... Those specific reasons give the green light for ANYONE and I mean ANYONE to act like a complete mindless, narcissistic socipathic WACKJOB and get away with it free and clear. The driving is just a mirror image of what is going on in these entitled liberal lefty wackos minds who have NO CONCEPT of REALITY outside of the borders of California. 2+2= 4.5 to these idiots all day long, but to be quite frank, there is a possibility that these idiots are mentally lobotomized from the insane levels of fluoride in their public water supply which taints their consciousness to be a walking zombie, just my opinion. All the noise, cars with loud volumes, very mixed society, house on top of house, low income jobs, overpopulation, rudeness, constant drinking and partying everywhere, insanely loud neighbors... THIS IS WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE SO NUMB!!!! <-- Someone who finds great relief finding this website, thank you.
    • Joey on:
      Why?
      or a better person... these are someone of the most ethically messed up people... with terrible intentions on purpose, and unfortunately if you call them out on it, they play dumb trying to make you question your own sanity. This state should float off far into the pacific. What a waste of human potential...
    • Lina on:

      I don't understand how these amazing people are so terrible driving a car!!! California drivers totally suck!!! DMV need to do something! :(
    • Your bad at driving too on:
      Why?
      You realize you're adding to the problem judging from your reactions to others incapable driving. I stopped reading because I know your one of the worst of them all and this is a hypocritical article. You should all have your licenses taken away.
    • BJ on:
      Why?
      I do not see hit and run accidents as much as anywhere in this country. Everyday morning, there are so many cases I see on the news.. Why???? If it rains, forget it... You think you have to drive 20 mph on the highway when you see a rain drop.... People drive in rain and snow all the time. I see that CA people are not used to drive with rain but at least try to learn instead of driving 20 mph and saying it is safer... Why don't you walk instead? It is much safer that way.
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      Why?
      I have lived in FL, AL, MA, MD, NJ, NY and now in CA. CA drivers are the worst among all the states I have lived. Therefore, I am trying to be very truthful and input with "Fact Base" here. I agree lots of things said above but there are some other things. 1. Turn Signal (Already Mentioned) I videotaped so many times because it really made me laugh and angry. I say 30% would be pretty high for people use blinkers. In other state, you get a ticket if you did not use blinkers. In SoCal, No one uses blinkers and it is ok. When they use it, it is not that you would like to let other drivers to know that you are changing the lane of making a turn. Lots of people do it in the middle of the turn. Why bother? 2. Texting People still text while driving and I see that everyday everywhere. When they do, I noticed that majority of them go 35mph on 50mph zone and causing traffic. PLEASE pull over, text and get back on the road. Stay away from your phone... 3. Traffic Light I see so many people in the front so far away from the line so that they do not even go over the sensor on the road. Another thing is you leave 2 school buses space between the car in front of you and your car. One light can make 10 cars pass but with this, only 4 get to go. I know CA people are very laid back, relaxed but come on... Let's move. If you are making turns, please use your blinkers before you get on the left or right lane, not after you get on the turning lane then turn the signal. When you are suddenly slowing down, people behind you do not know what you are doing. 4. Highway Driving It is called "Freeway" here in CA. I get it. But it doesn't mean you can go 50mph on the left lane causing traffic, people keep passing you on the right. If you would like to drive slow, it is your choice but do not cause a massive traffic or make other people to pass you on the right. There are other countries that left lane is specifically for passing and you will get a ticket if you hold up a traffic. It is a common sense. My 3 years of driving experience in CA has been nothing but nightmare... People just stop in the middle of the road without turning signal or any justification. I find it very selfish... I can't wait to get out of CA not to deal with driving. I have driven in most of States but CA makes the worst of all. It is a FACT....
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      Why?
      When you are on HOV lane or passing lane going 50 mph in 65 mph zone, cars passing within speed limit on your right side, please move over. Do not block the whole traffic behind you. Be courteous... I see people leaving 10 school buses space in between cars. Move along with the traffic so that you do not have to be causing the traffic. If you do not want to drive with speed limit, then move over to your right and let others move...
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      "Quite often you see people that will turn right in front of you cutting you off when you are going some insane speed." The problem is your driving at an insane speed. It's insane aa you say.

  • 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.

    Disclaimer: You’re on your own with these tips. They are not the official law and in no way represent what you should be doing should a cop pull you over.
