    But what I was really referring to is street traffic no so much exit/entry ramps where you do have the right of way and they expect traffic to just stop in the middle of forwarding moving vehicles, you can't just stop in the middle of the road and expect everyone to say okay I'll cause an accident because of this moron who is clearly living in their own world!
    I was referring to street traffic too. And you still dont have whats referred to as "right of way". If you're turning left acrost traffic into a parking lot & someone is turning left out of it. Then you have "right of way". If you're an ocean liner & are sharing a bay with a dingy, then you have "right of way". You dont have to allow someone to merge in front of you. But it's considered bad form not to.

    You dont actually have to stop to let someone over btw, maybe thats your issue. You can just slightly depress the break pedel for aprox 2 seconds.

    However, if they need to get over and say, turn at the next cross street? They will need to stop if no one lets them in, and they often do. Which often does cause accidents. Unlike yeilding to someone trying to merge, which is generally considered good driving habit & proper etiquette.

    I think you confirmed much of what I said, except I don't think it's bad form not to let someone hold up traffic if traffic wasn't already going slow or stopped, obviously a driver can't just cut you off hence they attempt to take advantage of your better nature rather than doing what they should be doing like a responsible driver and either plan ahead or in the case that they miss a turn go down to the next cross street like I do since I don't have that kind of self importance.

    Sure they're a poor driver. They arent paying attention. They're distracted by something. They've had a lapse in concentration. They're unfamiliar with the area. They're genuinely lost.

    Take your pick.

    All of them could cause what you've described to happen. We're all guilty of at least one of them at some point (yes, even you). And they're all signs of poor driving.

    But the key to good driving is this:

    It takes at least 2 poor drivers to cause in accident. In this case, you'd be one of them.

    You clearly didn't read my posts or got hung up on something you didn't like. I don't force people off the road as much as I would like to.

    If it is a legitimate merge no problem, provided there's space and you aren't stopping in the middle of traffic sure I'll let you in.

    -The designs of buildings were I live. In Arizona it's simply "stucco,Mexican tile,sand or tan color." I understand the whole desert feel,they want to convey I guess,but still it's kind of boring.
    -Restaurants where the condiments and other items like that aren't put out for easy use. This mostly applies to fast food places,I guess. We had a McDonald's here were you had to go and ask for a refill. Thankfully they remodeled it 3 months ago.
    -Trash on the ground,next to trashcans which are not full.
    -The DVDs for Time Warner films. Most of the time you can't fast forward through the commercials,and just when you think your done the second half of commercials start.
    -People who think I some nutcase or that I'm disabled because I have ADD(Attention Deficit Disorder.)

    Most athiests only seem to take examples of extreme islam or extreme chrstianity for their arguments yet completely ignore the fact that there is thousands of other religions that don't follow that format.
    There are religions that don't even have gods in them and there are religions that have multiple gods. There are religions that teach you to be open and love everyone (which is actually something i was taught as a Catholic, that includes gay people).

    It's actually a pretty ignorant thing to generalise every religion, which is ironic considering alot of athiests accuse religious people of being ignorant.

    I was raised a Catholic and contrary to popular belief, i was never fiddled by my priest and i was taught to have no problem with gay people or other religions or anything. I may not practice Catholocism now but i do believe that being brought up in that environment made me a better person.
