Annoying Drivers

As you know, everyone's horrible at driving except you. You're perfect. "Consumer Reports" just released the results of a survey where people ranked the 20 most annoying things other drivers do on a scale of one to 10. The most annoying behavior is texting while driving. It got an average score of 8.9 out of 10.  That puts it just ahead of able-bodied people parking in handicapped spots, which got an 8.7. The least annoying thing was the only item on the list connected to the radio, because radio is a fantastic and flawless medium. People who crank the volume on their radio too high only averaged a 5.7 out of 10 for annoyingness. So, turn it up.

Here's the full list of the 18 most annoying things other drivers do.

#1.)  Texting while driving, 8.9 out of 10.
#2.)  Able-bodied drivers parking in handicapped spots, 8.7.
#3.)  Tailgating, 8.4.
#4.)  Drivers who cut you off, 8.3.
#5.)  Speeding and swerving in and out of traffic, 8.2.
#6.)  Taking up two parking spaces, 7.7.
#7.)  TIE: Talking on the phone while driving not letting you merge into a lane and not dimming high beams, 7.6.
#8.)  Not using turn signals, 7.5.
#9.)  TIE:  Slow drivers in the passing lane and jaywalkers who walk in front of your car, 7.3.
#10.)  Excessive horn honking, 7.1.
#11.)  Rubbernecking at accidents, 7.0.
#12.)  Not turning on lights when it's raining or about to get dark, 6.8.
#14.)  Drivers who are indecisive about where to turn, 6.6.
#15)  Slow drivers on a two-lane road who won't pull over, 6.5.
#16.)  Not going when the light turns green, 6.1.
#17.)  Bicyclists who don't let you by, 5.8.
#18.)  Cranking the radio volume, 5.7.
