Incredibly Stupid Drivers
I am amazed at how stupid some drivers are, perhaps they are just insane and don't know what they are supposed to do. Originally this was for just stupid drivers, but the fact is that there are too many of them and so I decided to just show the worst of the stupid drivers, or just the Incredibly Stupid Drivers.
Normally I add new stupid drivers to the bottom of this, but this one deserves to be at the top and is a person to watch out for, not only because of her poor driving skills, but because of her attitude and serious stupidity. She has proved herself to be one of the top stupid drivers around.
I arrived at the left turn lane of a 4 way stop. As I started to proceed, this idiot came from the other direction and did not stop. I honked my horn as she started to turn right in front of me. When we both parked, this prime example of stupidity started yelling at me saying that she had the right of way because she was turning right, which goes to show how clueless she is since the first person to a stop sign has the right of way and if two people arrive at the same time, then the person ON the right has the right of way. She also accused me of being impatient for my honking at her and not allowing her to go first. That is quite funny since she was in such a rush that she could not bother to stop at a stop sign, as required by law and for safety, nor allow others who arrived at the stop sign first to go.
It made absolutely no impression on her when I nicely suggested that she should talk to the DMV and/or the police to learn who actually has the right of way at a 4 way stop. She did threaten to call her boyfriend though, which again shows how stupid she is since she thinks that a fight solves problems or something.
As a final sign that she deserves the Stupid Driver of the Year, take a look at her parking job. Not only did she park going the wrong way (one way around the parking lot), she could not even park within the lines. She obviously could cause a problem when she tries to leave since it is not that wide between the parking spaces.
Now, on to the rest of the stupid drivers.
Here is such an example:
No, this car is not turning. The driver, a blond, BTW, decided to park there and in that way. Also, all of what looks like lights is actually just a reflection from the camera's flash. This was near a school and so most likely she is picking up a child, but it certainly is a bad example of how to drive. Since it was around 10 minutes before school got out, there were quite a few vehicles driving around, and she was still parked there when kids were walking around, which she was helping to block the view of other drivers. What you can not really see is that she could have pulled forward and parked legally, or she could have park across the street, when she stopped here. Instead she decides to basically stop in the middle of the corner, quite far away from the curb. Since she has a small car, she could have parked better, but I guess if you are going to show that you are rude, inconsiderate and can't drive at all, why not make it really obvious. Most other people had enough sense and skill to know where and how to park.
Often other drivers do stupid things too. One prime example is that the main street is a two lane road with no stopping signs, yet there are many clueless clowns who decide to park there, which causes confusion since other drivers don't know if they are stopped for the stop sign or what and when they realize that the person is an idiot, they then have to change lanes and make a right turn from the left lane, due to the idiot parking.
Such stupid drivers are also showing how to drive poorly to their children. When those children learn to drive, one can imagine how poorly they will drive.
There are many examples of poor driving skills, but in this case it happened right in front of me and I had my camera to document it.
If you see this vehicle driving (or parking) around, please consider yourself warned that this person can not drive and is apt to park anywhere she pleases.
If you have your own stories or pictires of stupid drivers, please forward them to me so that I can include them in this web page. I have many stories, which I should document here, but I don't have pictures for most.
Here is an example of a really stupid and selfish Snap-on tool driver:
This driver, perhaps the owner of the truck, has the name and phone number on the side of the truck and decides to stop in a lane of traffic on a busy street (while there are not many oncoming cars in the picture, the cars come in packs due to the traffic lights). Ignoring the fact that this violates the law, which obviously the person could care less about, it could cause an accident, makes traffic worse for others and is generally just rude and selfish. In the first photo you can see the white line of the traffic lane marker and the second photo it is clear where the vehicle is parked. I saw numerous vehicles have to stop or slow to get around this parked idiot.
I called Snap-on in Sacramento, CA, 800-865-1199, and was referred to the Newbury Park, CA office, 800-775-7636, and talked to a person who said they were the office manager. This person did not answer their own phone, but was reached from the Customer Service option. In talking to this person it was clear that he did not care what the person did. He said that all trucks are independently owned and that if the person did something wrong to call the police, which is many cases the police can not do anything about it since they have to see the infraction. It seems that this person could care less about how Snap-on looks to the public, nor how the person is representing Snap-on. Perhaps if enough people call Snap-on to tell them this type of behaviour is unacceptable, then they will do something about it.
Yet another stupid driver. While the initial actions of this stupid person were not related to driving, it did have to vehicles and then he showed how incredibly stupid he was. I stopped to eat and I noticed some somewhat strange people eating there too. The party consisted of two younger males and what seemed to be the parents. I overheard one of the younger males talking about sleeping in a pool hall and then bragging about a $650 pool que, that was really worth $1500. This was the first sign of what type of people these people were. They then went out to the younger males vehicle, looking at this and that and checking and adding oil. I guess they don't get the concept of checking the oil when you get gas, or maybe they just got it wrong and though that you are supposed to check it when you get gas from food. At this point I went to my vehicle and found that they had put a magnetic sign on my vehicle. I decided to say something to them since it showed a complete lack of respect of other people's property. What is also showed was that the parents were just as stupid as the children since the father did not get it at all. I guess it is too much to expect people to respect other people and instead want to enforce their views on others and don't see the need to ask. Now, it is not a matter of disagreeing, it is just that I do not like people putting things on my vehicle without my permission. After that I left and got on the freeway. A while later these people confirmed, without a doubt, of how stupid they are. First, they were driving fast, much faster than traffic. Then, to confirm to me that they were really stupid they decided to cut me off. They also changed lanes several times and are so stupid that they don't know how to use the turn signal. I guess it shows that parents pass on their stupidity to their children.
It seems like today was stupid driver day, but then again I guess that could be every day, although today seems worse than usual. It started with a stupid Moorpark Police officer who changed lanes right in front of me without allowing for proper clearance. I had to hit the brakes and change lanes to avoid hitting him. I also flashed my lights because what he did was stupid and dangerous and even more so because he is a police officer and should know better than that. It appears that this officer is assigned to Moorpark High School, which makes it even worse since this dangerous driver is around children, putting then at risk, as well as being a very bad example of driving to young drivers. His look when I passed him showed that he thought that he could do anything he wanted to because he was a police officer. Too bad for him since I talked to his supervisor about his driving skills and while I did not file an official complaint, it will not make him look good in his department. I would strongly suggest that anyone who see an officer driving badly and putting others at risk to make a note of the vehicle number and take the time to report the officer so that they learn to drive. It is sad that citizens can not give officers tickets since in this case you know that if I had driven like he did that I would have received a ticket.
Later, I was going to get on the freeway and an idiot in a Silver Dodge pickup showed how bad of a driver he is, as well as how stupid he is. He quickly changed lanes from the #1 lane to the #3 lane, thereby cutting me off. The lane changes were not safe nor legal and I again had to hit the brakes to avoid hitting this moron, but what it all the more stupid is that the #2 lane also went on the freeway, which I changed to after this idiot pulled his stunt. I also have to wonder why such a moron feels the need to give someone the finger after doing something so stupid, as well has honking his horn. I guess it is not enough to have others think that the person is a bad driver, they also have to prove beyond any doubt that they are also stupid.
The last stupid driver was a young man in a red Suburu station wagon. It seems this stupid driver was in such a rush as to not want to stop for a red light. The vehicle to the right and in front stopped, but this stupid driver did not care. He almost got hit by the vehicle in the opposite left turn lane since one vehicle had already stopped and the person assumed that other vehicles would also stop too. The light had turned red well before this stupid driver entered the intersection. Of course he got quite far by putting people in danger, so far that I passed him at the next light, as I was turning right and the light was red, but there were vehicles in front of him so that he could not run that too. He was busy doing something with his cell phone, so I guess that is why he felt no need to stop for a red light. Added to the whole thing is that it was raining and he had more than enough time to stop.
There were other stupid drivers, but these three were at the top of the list today.
I recently saw a show on TV about railroad issues. One part dealt with a young man who tried to beat a train, going twice the speed limit for quite some time in order to make his attempt as the train paralleled the road for something like a mile. He did not make it and this resulted in his sister's death. This is a very sad story and shows what happens when you are stupid, but it also seems that he gets this from his father. Due to this "accident", his father wants to force the installation of gates on both sides of the tracks, not just on the oncoming traffic side. This is supposed to help convince stupid people from going around the gates. Unfortunately this will cost a lot of money and most likely will not do much good in my opinion. When I was stopped at a crossing there was a woman in a 280Z who was about to go under the gates, but just as she was about to go, the train came flying past. Also the gates are wood, often designed to break, instead of doing damage, so stupid people are likely try to go under, around or through. I guess the guy wants to do something in order to help with his pain of losing his daughter, but I think he is going in the wrong direction and instead he would be better off trying to educate people. One thing that I have found is that people think trains are very loud and noisy, but that is not the case as the train comes towards you. It is amazing how a train can sneak up on you. I have had this happen a couple of time while waiting for a train, suddenly there was a train right in front of me. I told this to a fellow passenger and he thought that I was wrong, but a couple of months later he came up to me and told me that I was right.
Here is a picture of an incredibly selfish, inconsiderate and stupid driver who thinks that their vehicle deserves two parking spaces in a parking lot that has limited spaces. While it is wrong and illegal, I suspect if this person continues to park like this there will be a person who lets them know how they feel about such poor actions.
This is not the first time that I have encountered a stupid driver in a company vehicle. It amazes me that these people don't think about the fact that they can be tracked back and that it reflects poorly on the company.
On 15-May-2013 I was driving North on Spring St in Moorpark and had a green light when a white pickup turned right on red, basically not stopping. This was not all that much of an issue, although it showed poor judgment to turn in front of oncoming traffic, but then this idiot could not stay in his own lane and was around a foot into my lane. Since he was going slowly from turning and I was going the speed limit, this presented a problem, so I hit the horn to get him back in his lane. This seems to have upset him, most likely because he did not have a clue as to what he did wrong, so he caught up to me and pulled next to me, which required him to exceed the speed limit as I was already in front of him, and proceeded to rant and rave for quite some time, although I could not hear him since the windows on both vehicles were closed.
Due to this I would avoid this company as I encountered one of their employees on the road who has a serious problem driving, as well as road rage. When a person is so stupid as to not be able to drive and is driving a vehicle with the company name and number on it, it shows that the person has serious issues and the company has serious issues for hiring such a person. It could even be the owner for all I know.
Based on the phone number I wrote down, 805-581-5826, and I also remember it was a fencing company, although I think the name on the vehicle was a different name (perhaps they change their name in order to confuse people when they get a bad reputation with a previous name) the phone belongs to:
Based on this, I would have to say that this company is not the Finest Fence Company. If you happen to use this company and there is a problem, it might just set this person off, but you won't know that you are dealing with this nut case until he goes off. This seems like a company to avoid. I did sent them email and this is the response I received:
I received your email last night and discussed it this morning with my husband. Although the circumstances which you state in regard to this traffic incident that occurred yesterday, are not entirely as you perceived them. I asked my husband, and he said when he made his right turn his turn, the light was still yellow. That being said.... My husband would like to apologizes for his aggressive behavior,lack of character and very poor judgement he displayed towards you. He know his "road Rage was inappropriate, and with sincerity ask for you to please accept his apology.
The problem is that there was a vehicle in front of him and he basically ran the red light. It was not yellow any more, but that was not the actual issue. While that showed poor judgment, the real issue was that he crossed the line when there was another vehicle there. I am not sure that he was even aware of what he did, perhaps he was distracted with a cell phone, map or something else. Also, if he was really sorry, he would be the one to apologize. Any bets that his wife is just saying that?
Update: I received an interesting email message today:
I have already apologized for my out burst, but apparently that wasn't enough. I would like to meet with you, maybe stop by your home and apologize to your face and take what ever appropriate actions to put this in the past. Please don't hide behind your keyboard.
Be sure of this.. I am not going away until this matter is resolved. If you choose not to respond or meet with me I will take legal actions against you that will include all lawyers fees, as well as punitive damages. Iam demanding that you delete my contact/business name and our personal names information immediately. PLEASE REMOVE IT.
I look forward to meeting/hearing from you. I am sure you would like this to go away too.
Yes, it seems that he has some serious anger issues. Notice all of the attacks. He also does not get that he has a serious driving problem and he really does not get that he has some serious anger issues. He seems to think that threats will get him what he wants.
He never apologized as he had to have his wife do so.
I really have to wonder about his mental status when he thinks that I would want to meet someone with anger issues like he showed with his driving and then with the above email message.
It also seems clear that he does not have an idea as to the concept of Free Speech. I have asked him to address any issues with this article in which there is something which is not correct.
It is interesting that he wants to advertise his business on his vehicle, but when he gets free advertising he does not seem to like it.
His saying that I would like "this" to go away is interesting. I would like his inability to drive and his anger issues to go away, but until he gets professional help, that is not going to happen and so far it does not appear that he understands his issues.
Here is a previous email message in which his wife says that he does not know how to type on a computer, so that she has to do it for him. I wonder when he learned to type, or is it just that both of them will lie in order to serve their own purposes?
For someone who does not know how to use a computer,
it seems that he is somehow now able to do so.
Does this mean that his wife was lying when she said that he couldn't use the
