I have a pet peeve that just makes me crazy, and I'm definitely going to use it in a book sometime. People have forgotten how to drive, or they just don't care if they follow the rules.
When turning left drivers turn wide and go into the far lane instead of the lane nearest them so the person turning right on the opposite side of the road has to wait for them.
The thing that annoys me most these days is when a driver doesn't use his/her blinker. Or, they turn their signal on and it flashes once or twice before they cut in front of you. Sometimes, I am beside them and can't see their signal until they speed up and get a couple of feet ahead of me. It really irritates me if there wasn't anyone behind me and they could've stayed in the rear. What's the big deal getting ahead of one car?
In some ways, I can understand road rage. No one likes to get cut off or have someone barge in front of them especially when they have to stop to let them in. It's time to have driver's education back in the schools.
What's your pet peeve and have you used it in a story?
