    Just thinking..

    About two years ago I noticed that everyone is doing this freaking thing where they stop like two car lengths behind the car in front of them at stop lights. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS????? If three or four cars do this, instant traffic jam. Noone used to do this, now I see it every day. Did they post this stupid behaviour on MySpace or something. Arghhhh![​IMG]

    What stupid human tricks make you mental?[​IMG]

    I don't know but stopping right on top of someone's tail lights isn't good either. HELLO?!? There are people in this world that still drive a standard transmission!!!

    *Yes, I know how to balance the clutch, but darn it- it's the principal of the idea!*

    Yeah, not talking about that. As I said in the OP-these people are car length-s (plural!!!!) behind the car in front of the. They can not only see the where the rubber meets the road, they can also see the acres of real estate beyond that.

    Not only overkill, it totally jacks up traffic.

    I don't know if it's why people do it, but I've read that women should do this so they can get away from carjackers easier.
