Ever notice a particular make or model of car that seems to have consistently bad drivers?

Mine are any Saturn, Pontiac Bonnevilles, Neons, and full sized vans.

I don't have a particular model of car but watch out for those minivan drivers. They are crazy.

Minivans driven by Asian women and high-end luxury sedans driven by Indian men. Not so much a problem in KY as it was in San Hose, however.

I stay out of all traffic's way. Sometimes you just have to say to hell with the speed limit and quickly space yourself from everybody else.

Mitsushitty Eclipses! Every damn one of them I run into seems to want to race. And for some strange reason.....Kias, any model.

+1 to the Minivans with Asian women and the Luxury cars with Middle eastern looking men.

I also get it from full sized trucks around here, but I attribute that to the sheer number of people driving them. (Even though we are in town, and the beds have never been used to haul anything!)

Ricers. They weave in and out, cut off cars, etc. One nearly got me the other day... had I not anticipated his behavior and covered the brake, his back bumper would have clipped my front wheel.

The handicapped. My apologies to those of you who have friends or relatives with a physical handicap, but I've noticed that for whatever reason, they can't drive for shit. My motto is: "Assume all handicaps are mental."

Any car that has someone on a cellphone driving it.

Also, any sh*tbox out there due to the fact that the drivers don't care if they hit anything because their car is already a POS. These can be detected by many attributes but mainly how much rust is on the car.

Expeditions, Surburan/Tahoe/Yukons, H2’s, I’ve had quite a few almost merge into me on the freeway. Little old men in hats are always dangerous, doesn’t matter what they’re driving.

I've had almost no trouble with the big, bad SUV. I'ev been cut off on occasion by one, but far and away it's cars.
I can't name a specific one (although Hondas do seem to attract their fair share of moron drivers, they also sell ALOT of cars).

What I noticed is OVERLOADED cars. You know, when there is 7 people in a Civic. I have noticed that the last several close calls I've had on the highway come from cars FULL of people. Even assuming they can't see in their rearview because of someone's head, you'd think that they'd use the side mirrors more. But the last couple times I watched and never even saw a flick of the eyes to the side mirror.
That and Audi's. Just today (I was in my truck) a dude in an Audi accelerated like it was a snail, then suddenly leapt forward speeding up, only to slam on the brakes to make a turn. And they say the GSXR has an on/off type of throttle!
That and ricers. THey think they're sh1t is quick, so they try to lane blast. Coupled with zero suspension, they cannot change lanes without jerking from one to another. Never a smooth transition, always the lane jerk.

Here's direver's ed. Every driver should be forced to be a passenger on a motorcycle for a day. That ought to teach them to be more careful.
