When you are out driving, what is the one thing that other drivers do that annoys you the most?

Oh, that would have to be when the driver behind me creeps up on my tail, trying to get me to drive faster, even though I'm going the speed limit.

I can't stand it when people are talking on their cell phones while they're behind the wheel, even if they're on a hands-free device, because the fact remains that they just are not paying attention to the road and other drivers.

It really bothers me when someone in an opposing lane of traffic sees that the light for them is yellow, and speeds up to make it through the intersection, instead of slowing down and stopping. It's very dangerous, and it holds up the drivers on my side of the road.

My problem is more with pedestrians than other drivers. I find it positively maddening when pedestrians have their heads buried in their hand-held devices and just step out into the road to cross the street, without even looking up to see whether there is any oncoming traffic.

When I see people texting while they are driving, it drives me nuts. It creates such hazardous conditions for everyone else on the road. Not to mention the danger to the texting driver.
