Top 5 en Español: Top 5: Driving outrages

2:43 /

Based on a poll of CNET On Cars viewers, Brian Cooley discusses your top five driving outrages.

[MUSIC] We're on incensed by drivers fiddling with their phones while their texting e-mailing webbing mapping. Who knows what's next. But in the end, road rage is as old as driving. I'm Brian Cooley with the top five other driving outrages aside from technology as reported by you, scene are tech viewer. Let's get to it. Number five is the zipper or not being aware of it. The simple idea that when lanes merge, cars from each lane alternate coming in the single file. Good grief. Is it that hard? Instead, you box me out when it's my turn to get in the line and stare straight ahead like I'm one of those homeless guys coming up to your window. Let me in. number four, taking two parking spots. Park much? There are lines between the spaces. That's a dead giveaway you're only supposed to sit in one of them. Luckily, full self parking tech is coming fast, and I trust computers won't be a-holes. Number three, Slow in the Fast Lane. Now, technically the fast lane is the passing lane but let's face it, in reality it's the speeding lane. Regardless, a whole bunch of you want to be left unimpeded to risk that ticket. By the way, the difference in arrival time between going 55 and 70 is about 14 minutes per hour. Number two, parking too close. Oh, I get this one cuz I'm that guy that parks over there. When my passengers roll their eyes I point at my pristine 25 year old car and remind them that's why it looks better than their two year old lease. So when you park so close to me that it would have been easier to climb out of your sunroof than open your door, I see red. Before we get to number one you had some great write in outrages that I hadn't thought of. Among my favorites' people who park with their headlights shining into the Waffle House, big lifted Jeeps that still have to slow to a crawl to go over a speed bump, ,and cars so lowered you actually see the driver wince and contort when going in a driveway. I've seen that actually. Okay, the number one outrage, aside from being on the phone, is merging. This is that guy who comes right across your [UNKNOWN] into your lane. No signal, no gap, not even a good speed match. Now I'm on the brakes, and the guy behind me runs into my trunk, because he's texting. Most of you encounter these outrages multiple times per commute. You say. Yet violent crime is trending down in the U.S. So, bless you! [NOISE] High tech cars and modern driving. That's at cnetoncars.com. I'm Brian Gooling. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
