Especially drunk driving, which is like the most worthless, unnecessary crime ever. I mean, you probably won't convince people to stop doing drugs by increasing the punishment, but you can sure as poo poo change the calculus of "but I don't wanna take a cab!"

My biological dad is an alcoholic & lives in another state - after years of him getting pulled over or in wrecks from driving drunk, his license finally got taken away in like 2008. I know of at least a half dozen incidents from growing up around him (before my mom got remarried & we moved, thankfully) where he got into some serious accidents, whether it was with another car, going into a ditch, hitting a telephone pole, poo poo like that. He's the reason I rarely drink & never drive under the influence...that, plus when I was in high school he told my mom that I would "turn out just like him" & she'd never be able to stop it. So now my reasoning is two-fold, because I really don't care for drinking & would love to shove it right in his dumb loving face that I made a success of myself despite his insecurities, bullshit & attempts to get money from me.

Feel ya there.

There is 1/3 of normal traffic in Tampa Bay, but 2/3 of the people driving are being total poo poo-heels about it. All the room in the world but you gotta ride my rear end in the right lane before crossing yellow at the last minute to cut me off at the off ramp.

Not sure what it is about the stay-at-home orders that seems to bring out all the assholes but there is some seriously terrible driving that has been going on this month.
I still have to go into work every other day and the people that are on the road all seem to be competing for biggest jerk.
I cruise in the middle lane, about 5 over and I still have people run right up on me and then try to change lanes to pass on the right, barely squeezing between my bumper and that of the car next to me which had to slam on the brakes to avoid being hit.

Dude, just get in the open left lane and do 100mph if you're in such a hurry. It's open and nobody gives a poo poo about you speeding right now. Stop trying to run people off the road.
This is like every loving day. What in the actual gently caress?

Police aren't enforcing speeding as strongly as they usually do to reduce social interaction. People have caught wind of this and think that means Mad Max rules apply. They're still going to pull people over for going 20+ over. But where that line is depends on the department.

I had a super cool horn honking interaction myself just yesterday. I was turning off the main road onto my street but there were two people walking across it, in the crosswalk, and the guy behind me took such offense to me not running them over so he could get on with his way he had to cross the double yellow and blow his horn while passing me. Geez guy, alright. Next time I'll commit double vehicular homicide.

The nice, decent, sane people are staying home. The only people going to work are a) those that have to and b) those with inflated egos that demand they go in.

Therefore it's not that there's more asshats, it's that there's less decent people to normalize them.

Truth. I drive for a living, driving is the whole point of what I do. Like, it says so on the side of my vehicle. The semi drivers are being cool, we still have that solidarity. The dick weeds in convoy driving Infinti's with fart cans, drifting sideways through traffic? What essential poo poo are they up to? Why the gently caress are the police not doing a drat thing? This whole episode is showing up how lawless people are willing to be and how useless the police are at stopping that. All they've done is pick up more side work at construction sites during this. Public workers, my rear end. Getting paid to sleep in the car.

They clearly haven't seen me clean before.

People you share a parking lot with: pulled up to a nursing home with a wheelchair bound patient today and someone had parked directly in front of the handicap ramp. Who does that? The guy that yelled at me when asked to pull forward, got told by the receptionist to move, parked up, somehow couldn't back out of the spot in three tries, took pictures of my vehicle, all the while being berated by a very old stroke victim in a wheelchair, that's who.

Good thing he didn't start anything, she would have whupped his rear end.

I don't know what your point is. Most people driving today would probably fail a driving test - hell, I probably would too. You should always drive as if the guy next to you is trying to kill you, because he probably is, he just doesn't know it yet.

I mean it's a dumb solution to a bad problem, don't get me wrong, but I don't think anyone in Georgia will see a spike in substantially worse driving.

I had a dude years ago that flipped me off when I gave a little horn chirp at a light. It turned green & was solid for a good 4-5 seconds before I tapped the horn, at which point he looks up, then in his rearview mirror, flips me off & drives off. gently caress you too buddy, not sorry I interrupted you trolling Grindr for 10 minutes instead of paying attention or whatever the gently caress you were doing.

Instead of making it so that you can get a full license without a test, which will presumably be valid for life, it would be more reasonable to say you can exercise the privileges of a full license with just a learner's permit, until such time as road tests can resume, if it's really necessary that people with learner's permits be able to drive on their own RIGHT NOW.

Had this happen to me just last week. Same situation, except this guy got mad just a few seconds later as he really loving stepped on it, pulled away, and flipped me off through the open sun roof.

Years ago I had a similar situation. "No right turn on red" sign. Right arrow goes green. Driver in front of me goes nowhere.

I blip the horn.

SHE POINTS AT THE SIGN AND FINGER WAGS ME.

Cut up your license you daft old bluehaired gently caress. You clearly can't handle the hair raising speed of zero mph anymore.
