Wait, is he making a U-turn there? Yarbulglrugh! There are like five lanes of traffic that guy's cutting off – what a dumbass! Here are the top ten favorite cars of the absolute worst drivers, as chosen by Jalopnik readers.

10.) Ford Explorers
Suggested By: nurik.xix
Why you should give it a wide berth: Nobody seems as ready to sit in your blind spot trolling you to crash and then overtake and cut you off like a distracted SUV driver. Much as the Chevy Trailblazer fought hard to get on this list, it's the Ford Explorer that seems like the worst of the bunch. Find them halfway into your lane, taking up two spots in the parking lot, or overturned in the snow showing off their summer tires.

9.) Hot rod Chevy Cavaliers
Suggested By: the_sparrow666
Why you should give it a wide berth: We've got nothing against small town cars. We love them, and it's fair to say that 99% of people driving to Walmart are not trying to kill you. For that other one percent, there's the Chevrolet Cavalier. Reader geistkoenig gives us the recipe for disaster that explains why you still see these things weaving through traffic after all these years: "Say what you will about panel gaps and the like, but Cavaliers will take more abuse than a wife in a bad Lifetime movie and keep going. GM doesn't get enough credit for building cars that will tolerate negligent idiots."

8.) Ferrari Enzos
Suggested By: coll9947
Why you should give it a wide berth: #SavetheEnzos! We at Jalopnik don't know why so many of these supercars end up wrapped around poles, or crumpled against guardrails, but that's just how the world is. I guess the world's oligarchs are too busy pillaging the world's natural resources and dining on endangered Manatee meat to get some driver training.

7.) The BMW 335i
Suggested By: Phil L.
Why you should give it a wide berth: When BMW gave the current-generation BMW 335i over 300 horsepower, the enthusiast world foolishly rejoiced. More power, we all thought, great! Well, it turns out that all that turbocharged goodness didn't give the world's young, rich inheritors much other than a massive sense of entitlement and more performance than they know what to do with. Look for them cutting you off on the way to their next date with a high curb or lamppost.

6.) The Toyota Prius
Suggested By: splitteronline
Why you should give it a wide berth: You'd think that Prius drivers would be slow, careful, and acutely aware of their surroundings as they hypermile down the slow lane, but you'd be wrong. Horribly wrong. Nobody seems to so readily speed down the HOV lane like a Prius driver, furiously burning through that hybrid drive and still paying more attention to their morning coffee than you in the next lane over.

5.) Geriatric Buicks
Suggested By: diondegennaro
Why you should give it a wide berth: I love my grandma, but bless her heart I don't want her driving. If there's anybody you're going to find creeping along the side of the road at seven miles-per-hour with two wheels on the curb, it's an old folk, and that's a Buick badge that's slowly but surely making its way through that row of trashcans.

4.) Lexus SUVs
Suggested By: waveridin1959
Why you should give it a wide berth: Cell phone in one hand, Starbucks in the other – the ‘ten and two' of the Lexus SUV driver. Find them drifting into your lane, cutting you off pulling into the mall, and generally making the world a more horrible, intolerable place.

3.) Lifted trucks
Suggested By: that other honda guy
Why you should give it a wide berth: Brah! What are you talking about? I'm a great driver, it's just all those other cars that somehow can't see me dicing through traffic. It must be because my lift kit has put me thirty feet in the air. Lets me see how bad everybody else is as a driver – it's not me, bro! Everyone else must be distracted by how awesome my truck is, that's al.

Suggested By: 87CE 95PV Type Я
Why you should give it a wide berth: To be fair, it's hard to drive right when little Timmy is throwing up on you, screaming, crying, and pulling on your hair. I'll let E34IsAnUnderratedE30..ExceptBetter describe the thought processes of your local minivan driver:
‘"IM GOING NOW! YOU YIELD! I HAVE A BABY ON BOARD!!"
"I'M GOING TO DRIVE 5 UNDER THE LIMIT! I HAVE THE WHOLE SOCCER TEAM"
"I'M NOT GOING TO LET YOU PASS ME! I HAVE A V6"
"I'LL TAKE AS LONG AS I LIKE IN THE DRIVE-THRU- MY CHILD NEEDS THE RIGHT TOY IN HIS HAPPY FUCKING MEAL"
" I'LL CHANGE LANES WITHOUT A BLINKER BECAUSE I'M TOO FOCUSED ON DRIVING CAREFULLY MY CHILDREN'S L.I.V.E.S. TO HIT THE BLINKER STALK!""

1.) The Toyota Camry
Suggested By: Everyone
Why you should give it a wide berth: While we shouldn't forget the wonder of geriatric-enhanced ‘unintended' acceleration, the real winner here are slightly rusty, never serviced, barely-roadworthy 1990s Camrys. They are the ones parking by feel, not checking their blind spots, turning without signaling, creeping through busy intersections, not looking where they're going, scraping half of your car in the parking lot, careening into lampposts, cutting across five lanes to get to their exit... I could go on. You'd think that it would be the really noticeable cars that top this list, but it's the totally commonplace, invisible cars that get you. I guess it's hard to stay concentrated on the road when you are young and you have so many other things on your mind, like meth.
