Road Rage   Friday, November 14, 2014

on Fri 11/14/14, driving down 5th St in Cambridge, MA, waiting for traffic to pass me on Binney St., so I can make the turn onto that road! Overly excited female behind me starts laying on her horn, and hand signaling to me to turn however, there was oil tanker coming down the road, so really lady? Now she gets irate, and goes around me to get a move on, only to run into traffic in that lane, tries to then cut in front of me, nearly hitting me, now there are people in the crosswalk so I stop, she almost slams into me again, her passenger sitting next to her laughing, like the whole thing is a joke! After going through the light I moved over to the right hand lane, she sped by me only to sit in traffic further ahead. Funny, but I turned right, took the shortcut, and when I came around to Mass Ave I could see her still sitting at the light that she had to hurry up and get to. Her plate number is 347HD9, MA. She needs some serious driving lessons and medication to calm her down before she actually kills someone. Oh, did I mention she was driving an SUV, and I'm driving a small Chevy Aveo.


Parking spot stealer   Wednesday, September 17, 2014

  Mazda, California plate 6LIW021, in Lake Tahoe. We were behind this Asshole in a parking lot, he passed the spot we ended up waiting for, because we saw the people coming to their car. When the car pulled out, he backed his car into the spot we were waiting for, cutting us off. We parked elsewhere, but I came back and took pictures of his backed in car. Looking for other places to post these.


Question   Thursday, April 17, 2014

 Does anyone know why there are often 2 black SUVs (Chevy's usually) with blacked out windows who drive like maniacs on GW parkway NB from Alexandria into points north or into DC? They are always in tandem, one right behind the other. It's almost scary how they weave through traffic together. They must be protecting someone? One could never get in between them for sure because the trailing SUV is so close to the first one, no one COULD get between them even if they had to.


Support   Thursday, April 17, 2014

 Hey all you in Northern Va - I am seeing more and more "Don't Tread On Me" plates! YAY! Wave! I drive a red Jeep so I'm used to waving, but one early morning 2 trucks drove by, both waving to me! Makes me feel like I'm not the only one. :-) Wave, peace sign or whatever. Matters not. The only place I see a higher amount of these plates is at the Chantilly gun show coming up soon!

 What is it with drivers in Plymouth who can't wait their turn to turn left onto Ann Arbor Road? If you're in a driveway or on General Street, like this moron in a BLUE  SUV about 3:15 this afternoon, oncoming traffic on EB Ann Arbor Road has the right of way. If I'd sped up, the crash would've been his fault. C'mon folks, let's stop being so damn greedy and impatient. and to the moron in the cream Villager who had to squeeze in front of my car on I96 west of Davison, you got honked and yelled at because you were being a selfish dick. Grow up and watch where you're going. Sh$thead. There wasn't room for you. Shut up and grow up.


Speed Racer   Friday, December 06, 2013

Going over the Mass Ave Bridge at 11:30 am today, and I'm doing the speed limit, and some speed racer pulls up so close to me he almost hits me, and then he speeds over into the left lane, cutting off the truck in that lane, and flies by me doing about 50 (speed limit is 30 mph), I was so hoping the cops were at the bottom of that hill today. License plate number 69R-R58, Black sports car. 


Still the same stufff   Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I had hoped to see that certain troll posters had left the site, but alas, it hasn't happened yet. This used to be such a fun place to chat and commiserate about horrible drivers. I'll check back in again someday... AO

253 UYO reckless BMW Santa clara   Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Blue BMW SUV with Washington State license tag 253 UYO just missed running over a pedestrian in a crosswalk by the Santa Clara University campus. Female, blond, early 20s was behind the wheel and took the turn from The Alameda onto El Camino Real at 30mph plus.


People who would come in 3rd in a 2 horse race.........   Thursday, March 14, 2013

What is it with people who can't stand to wait 3 seconds while someone in front of them is making a turn.....I mean they'll literally drive over the double yellow lines and over someone's lawn to avoid having to wait a couple of seconds......are we that impatient as a society or do people think their lives are so important that they need to put someone else's at risk? Come on folks......HB


Tossing Cigarettes   Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Try this topic... tossing cigarettes

Vehicle: Chevy Colorado
Color: Black
Location: Pensacola, FL

A few days ago, I saw a Navy Chief toss a cigarette out the window while at a traffic light.

1. Who thinks that is not a worthwhile flag here and who thinks it is bad enough to be mentioned? Is is real littering or bad enough to start a fire in the right circumstances OR it is not a serious situation.

2. Who thinks that I should not mention that he is a Navy Chief? I do respect the US military (I was one) but since he was in uniform and had Navy stickers with the Chief symbol, it was plain that he was not concerned to be identified with the Navy while tossing the cigarette out on the street.

Some wanted a good discussion. Others have left because of trolls. We'll see if we get a mature discussion or a insult match.

Here is an idea...   Thursday, November 22, 2012

Ban the user pisseddriver26, or take this site down.  Taking neither of these actions is incompatible with rational thinking.


Idiot Ram driver   Saturday, November 17, 2012

 Was cruising in the far-right lane of EB i-96 in Detroit this afternoon when this SFB in a newer black Ram decided he needed to exit at Davison. Nearly caused a needless wreck. From the far left lane. Laid on the horn and told him he was NO. 1. Seriously, if you're too stupid to notice your exit in time and get over safely, go to the NEXT ONE. I see this brain-dead jackass again, there will be a formal complaint made.


Such A Great Idea, But...   Tuesday, October 16, 2012

  PlateWire is an idea and website that I think should be doing much better than it is. I was disappointed to see so few daily entries. I would have thought this would be a much more popular website. I think some of the arguing in comments tends to put people off. The website should also stick to its original cause and not include the "Wink" tags. And lastly, it is not being monitored to support its own rules of conduct. Kind of sad, because the idea itself has great potential.


Idiot driver in Ford F250   Friday, September 28, 2012

While traveling east bound HWY 92 earlier this afternoon, this skid mark of an ass cut me off and then slams on the brake causing me to nearly rear-end him. I swerved around and he has the audacity to flick me off. Total trash.

He's a middle-aged white male with dirty blond hair and mustache. Drives a grey Ford F250 extended cab.

He headed up 580 and merged onto north bound HWY 13.

Watch out for this dick and give him a big F/U flip should anyone see on the road.


Ode to a troll. pisseddriver26!   Sunday, August 26, 2012

Ladies and gentleman! I give you the biggest boil on the ass of the world PISSEDDRIVER26! The loser who loves to troll from its mommies basement! The biggest skid-mark in existence! The retard who hides behind a computer and fails to back up its words with facts! The sick freak who loves to 'get it on' with a goat because it can't get any action anywhere else! Farmers and ranch hands, hide your livestock! PD26 is on the prowl! 


Merge Blockers   Wednesday, August 01, 2012

How do you people feel about drivers who block merging lanes? Almost every day I see at least one driver who decides that it is their job to drive on the dotted line, halfway in their lane, halfway in the merge lane, to ensure that no one getting on the freeway is able to properly use the merging lane. I assume they think what they are doing is in the right (it's not). Any of you guys do this? 


pisseddriver26   Wednesday, August 01, 2012

pat401 is a fucking retarded troll!!!! I hope it fucking dies a very horrible and painful death the sooner the better!!!!


-Brought to you by pisseddriver26 on the newest Rhode Island post

 It seems that PD26, as usual, is nothing but a self hating, livestock raping toll that has resorted to making death threats to new posters. Get a life PD26! You are nothing but a giant skid mark on some losers underwear!


Today's Ultimate ****head Awards   Tuesday, July 31, 2012

  Today I was half an hour late getting home due to a large number of very bad drivers, so I want to dedicate this journal to awarding the worst among them with the Ultimate ****head Award.

Today we had two Honerable Mentions that almost made the list. Both were landscaping trucks.

The first, a proper dump truck, passed almost half a mile of traffic in the Exit Only lane while moving slowly and holding up all of the exiting traffic behind him, before finally cutting over at the last second. He gets an honorable mention because while I expect this kind of behavior from the average Palo Alto driver, we like to pretend that people holding Class A licenses for oversize vehicles can be held to a higher standard.

The second, driving a converted pickup truck, gets his honorable mention for driving 10mph down a single-lane street through a neighborhood with a 30mph limit. Speed the **** up or pull over, buddy.

Now on to the winners.

Our Third Place winner for the Ultimate ****head Award goes to the 30-something woman driving alone in a red minivan up Page Mill Road, averaging 15-20mph and holding up a long line of traffic for 5+ miles while driving with one hand with her lips wrapped around a Starbucks coffee cup lid like it was a big fat ****. Lady, here's what I don't get... you've had the last 20 minutes 'alone' with your coffee while holding up other drivers like an enormous ****waffle... how have you not finished it yet? Your prize is public ridicule and universal scorn. Get off our roads.

Second Place goes to the driver of the **** brown sedan that crossed the double yellow, sped down the oncoming traffic lane in heavy traffic, ran a red light, and almost hit 2 other cars and a bicyclist in the intersection while making his illegal left turn. Congratulations buddy, I caught you on camera. Your prize is an angry letter to the Sheriff's office on your behalf. In the future, just stay home 5VDC434.

With a performance like that, you're probably wondering what could top it for the grand prize today.   Well as it happens we have one deserving driver that went the extra mile to leave the judge thoroughly unimpressed.

The Ultimate ****head Award Grand Prize of the Day goes to none other than the green mini cooper driver who held up traffic while driving 10-15mph below the limit for 8 miles without using a single turn-out to let people pass (average of 2 per mile on that stretch of road) However, it doesn't end there. Not only did he cause extreme aggrivation for people behind him, but also provided an immediate danger of severe injury or death to the oncoming lane of traffic when he crossed the double yellow to pass a bicyclist fully in the oncoming lane while in an uphill blind left corner overlooking a cliff. Your prize is an angry letter to the Sheriff's office, and the sincere wishes that when you hit someone head-on pulling something like that, that someone is driving a semi truck, and not a bike. Die alone, 6UJY316.


Wow   Wednesday, July 18, 2012

My atheistic proof of no god(s) is that if there were really a god he/she/it would smite all of your for your horrendous use of the English language with which he/she/it has supposedly provided to you.
