11 Reasons Why I Hate Driving

1. Road rage

I KNOW I cut you off man, but it wasn’t on purpose – stop glaring at me through your window!!

2. Slow drivers

Literally get out of the left lane.

3. People who brake then put their turn signal on


5. I’m just not very good at it.

What is the speed limit? Where are we going? idk

6. The fear of being pulled over

I’m just going to cry and forget everything and get a ticket and be sad.

7. Aggressive drivers

Switching in and out of lanes and riding people’s bumpers will probably not get you to where you need to be any faster.

8. Panicky passengers

My mom gasps every time I start my car I swear

9. Very large and very scary trucks

They will eat you alive, get out of their way.

10. People who ride their brakes.


11. The fact that I have to do it every day

Commuting is not fun my friends – why can’t everything be in walking distance?

  1. When I’m in the right lane, moving, waiting to reach the actual lines of the turn lane before I veer right to turn, and someone rides the shoulder and passes me when my turn signal is on, that sets me off really bad, but my only weapon is my horn. Sorry if that was you last night. But it really pissed me off, not because the driver passed me, but because they might have hit me if I didn’t happen to check my mirror. I don’t have time to deal with someone else’s insurance or any extra expenses or transportation, or worse, medical, shit. Got enough to deal with already.

  2. I hate driving because I always feel like other people think whatever they’re doing with their day is more important than the lives of others. WE’RE CONTROLLING DEATH MACHINES, PEOPLE!!! Cars are NOT toys or some sort of means to display your dominance. You can KILL people with them.

  3. Whatever you do, if you don’t already live here, don’t move to Florida. When you are younger than 65, you’re not allowed to use your turn signal. When you are 65 or over, you have to leave it on all the time.

  4. Hello! I just moved from the Philippines to America. In the Philippines, commuting is so much easier so it’s not really that inconvenient if you don’t know how to drive. But I know, I have to start learning it now that I’m already in the US. It’s scary for me but hopefully, I’ll learn this year. šŸ™‚

  5. Driving can be a pain. Check your blind spot and you’ll be less likely to accidentally cut someone off. Move over like you said. Then just watch out for someone else making a mistake or being a jerk and you’ll probably be alright, although one never knows.
    But what about open road driving? Isn’t that just the best?
    Sounds like you actually hate traffic.

      1. Join the club on that!
        It took me a while to really get a sense of where things were in relation to the cars I drove. Now I hardly ever use my mirrors.

  6. Yep, all of these suck. There are so many idiot drivers out there who think they own the road, in the city at least. I try and stay clear of rude and aggressive drivers, as much as possible! On the open road however, I love it.

  7. Ugh, goodness, I accidentally cut someone off one time, so they moved to the next lane, proceeded to pass me and then purposefully cut me off! Fortunately, I had seen what they were trying to do, so I had already started pressing on the break. I know it was bad for me to cut you off, but for you to intentionally drive dangerously is ridiculous!

    Great list šŸ˜‰

  8. UK reply: I retired three years back. Some men in their post-retirement crisis take up rock-climbing, or hang-gliding or scubba-diving… ha! Wimps! I bought a car and started driving after a gap of 40 years- man talk about living on the edge…..!!

  9. All good reasons for me not to drive. To which I also add the cost of the car, the cost of gas, the cost of insurance, the cost of repairs, and the costs for parking in a city.
