Drivers Drive Other Drivers Crazy!

I took an informal Facebook poll yesterday and asked for things that drive you crazy on the road.  It was inspired by the new research that says women most often fail driving tests over problems with parking, and men fail over reckless driving issues.

Here's what Facebook revealed about the things that really drive you crazy on the roads.  Your pet peeves are:

Both Genders Think Their Driving Skills Are Tops

Whew!  We made it through the holiday weekend traffic jams.  It definitely seemed like there were plenty more people on Highway 59 over the three-day weekend, and Loop 287 too.  Everybody was out camping, fishing, or doing something else that put them in our way on the roads.

Did you notice any bad drivers?  And if you did, were they male or female?  Guys will swear women are the worst drivers, and ladies will say men are the worst.  Can a little research settle this argument once and for all?

Driving + Texting Debate Heats Up at Texas Capitol

This one may get your blood boiling, since you can see, first hand, the impact of accidents associated with "texting while driving".

My drive to work is barely noticeable at 3.2 miles, yet three stop lights make it advantageous for me to peruse my fellow commuters.

Number of Uninsured Drivers in Texas Drops in 2012

Again, I'm not really a statistics guy, and readily admit that percentages of  some arbitrary poll excite me about as much as waiting for a  five mile-per-hour, 100 car train to pass through a highway crossing, when I'm already tardy for an appointment.

But, I was pleasantly surprised to hear, that uninsured drivers in Texas has dropped nearly 35% compared to one year ago!   What does this really translate into?  Nearly 2.5 million numbskulls are currently behind the steering wheel today without minimum insurance ( a state law violation), compared to 4.2 knot-heads last year.

Wearing Sunglasses in a Rain Storm May Improve Driving Conditions

With all the recent rain thus far, I'm always looking for a safer way to maneuver through the sheets of wah-wah that smash against my Pinto.  Don't know yet if this the almighty answer to seeing better through the windshield, but it's worth a shot next time you are caught in a downpour.

Pay Attention East Texas – Texting and Driving Don’t Mix!

We all know as responsible adults, that "drinking and driving" don't mix.  With the digital age in full force, not only are we hearing that "driving and texting" don't mix, but, it may not be too terribly long before Texas lawmakers sound the battlecry that if you send a message to a known driver, you may be held liable for your actions, in the event a disaster occurs on the receiving end!

Where are the Most Dangerous Intersections in Lufkin?

It's the beginning of a holiday weekend, YAY! And the beginning of people in your way on the road and aggressive drivers ticking you off. Who will present the biggest problem on the road today? It's those darn red light runners.

We've probably all had the experience of sitting at a red light that turns green, signaling our chance to go, and all of a sudden a car zooms through from the other direction. Near miss! Red light runners cause accidents all the time, and it turns out today is one of their favorite days to do it.

And what are the most dangerous intersections in Lufkin?

Be Aware of New Obstacle on East Texas Highways [VIDEO]

Had some business in Nacogdoches this morning, and on the journey back to Lufkin, I saw something on the highway that has not appeared before me in 15 years.  Is it because I've been "out to lunch", or have I been sleep walking through abnormal driving trips.  Right about now, you're probably saying to yourself, - "What's that weirdo talking about?...Outside of the collage of splattered, indescribable animals in their final resting place, where's the big mystery?"

City of Nacogdoches Outlaws Texting and Driving [VIDEO]

As a resident of Nacogdoches, I have to say that I am glad to see this put into effect.  I have been sitting at red lights and looked in the rear-view to see people almost slide into the back of me and after the tires screech, they look up from their cell phones.  Hopefully other communities will put this into effect as well.
