I love to drive. My car is my happy place. I love taking it places. Often, though, I find myself screaming from behind the wheel at some idiot crap that another driver has pulled. Because driving with other people ruins driving. Because other people are hell.

Last week, I asked you guys for the driving rules you wished people followed more. And honestly, I’m as befuddled as you are as to why more people aren’t following them. I remember most of them being taught in Driver’s Ed. The rest of it is just common sense. Mostly, don’t be a dick.

I felt a lot of rage in the comments this time around. But it was a good kind of rage! The kind of rage that hopefully will spark change.

Many good points were collectively picked out, like using turn signals, staying out of the left lane except to pass and being mindful about the high beams. I rounded up some of the more subtle ones.

I will defend the horn as long as you aren’t laying on it for five minutes because you’re tired of sitting in gridlock.
