But this is more in the SW VA area (up and down 81). I remember looking at the enrollment of the college I went to and the university I work at, both have New Jersey as their top enrollment underneath Virginia. People must REALLY want to get out of there.
They have invaded Nags Head NC by buying and renting all these hugh cottages for vacation. They have driven all the prices up there form food, golf, property and all consumer goods. They think its a deal because of what they are use to paying in NJ but what was once a nice little home town feeling beach area has just grown like crazy. I also get alot of people from NJ moving to the Virginia Beach/Chesapeake area. They move from 2000 sq foot homes and come her and buy 4000 sq foot homes for less and pay cash for them. Most are retired couples who just want to get away from NJ's high cost of living. Now when I say retired couples I mean in their mid 50's is quite common. Their great customers as I'm in the Insurance business and after they find out how much cheaper ins. is in Va they love ya. This is propably true with the school system and explains why they go to college here. With a military area we get drivers from all around the country and it can get quite crazy at times. I'm lucky that my rout to work does not involve getting tied up in traffic everyday. I do drive about 15 to 20 each way but I can take back roads with very little trafic and a few lights but I'm sure that will end some day.

Re: F... idiot drivers

I've noticed that around here too. It pisses me off that what's supposed to be the good ol' south (I'm not saying rednecks) is turning into NEW Jersey. Like when I meet someone new in town and they seem like assholes I'm like, "Are you from NJ?" and at least 9 out of 10 times they are. For some reason, all the NYers that move down here are nothing but nice. What is it about that state?

Re: F... idiot drivers

I only see that in Nags Head area and not around here. Maybe the people moving here from NJ are a little more relaxed and thats why the move this far down. Who knows but they are bring alot of cash with them and not taking up jobs. Our area just got hit with the news yesterday that the Ford Plant is closing and it employes about 2,400 people. Then you have all the other small businesses that support their opperations which it will hurt.

Re: F... idiot drivers

I'm always amused when I hear people outside of the D.C. area bitch about road jerks. It's so pervasive here we just learn to deal with it, but every once in a while when I'm in a particularly bad mood and some dumbass pulls a move, I can go nearly apoplectic.

However, let me tell you a good story. My wife picked me up from the Vienna Metro one afternoon and we were heading west on I-66 in the HOV lane. Now MY pet peeve is single drivers who feel that they alone are privileged enough to crowd up those lanes. Around Centreville, traffic is slowing and this woman cuts us off to get into the HOV lane. We are tooling along at a crawl and we see a state trooper with a car pulled for an HOV violation. The woman in front of us immediately tries to get back into the snail lanes but no one would let her in. My wife starts honking at the trooper and pointing at the woman in front of us. He nods and flags the woman to the side of the road. As we drove past the jerkette, my wife just smiled and waved.

Kind of made my day.

Re: F... idiot drivers

I had some dumb ass almost smash into me today. I was moving into the middle of 3 lanes after having my signal on for about a second or 2 and after I'm half way into the lane this douche on a cell phone, whom I had tried to get away from, (I hate drivers on their phones) who had been in the far left lane starts slamming on his horn. he then pulls up next to me as we r driving and tries talking trash so I just turn up my music, start swaying my head, and smiling as to not even acknowledge his existence and piss me off even more. as we r going down the road I watch as he rides up the bumpers of the cars in front of him and zipping from lane to lane without any signals. I absolutely hate the way so many people drive in VA and some of the worst r people in big cars that seem to think that just cuz they r in big cars that the have the right to force their way into your lane.
and like a couple others have mentioned I'm the type that will be nice occasionally and let people with their signals on get in ahead of me, but not if they speed up to do so when there is plenty of room behind me. that gets a big F U and a smile while doing so.
and whats up with people not being able to realize it might be a better idea to go a little further up than u had planned and doing a u-turn or something instead of coming close to making multiple crash while cutting across traffic?

Re: F... idiot drivers

I'm convinced that once you've driven in the DC Area, everywhere else (aside from NYC and LA) is a cakewalk. I drive almost 70 miles roundtrip every day, and see the most asinine things on my journey. Women putting their makeup on, people talking on their cell phones (no hands free), drinking coffee and driving, people reading a book, paper, map...in the far left lane. My biggest pet peeve is people driving in the fast lane, doing the speed limit because they are talking on their cell phone...look up to realize they have to get off right now, and cut across 4 lanes of traffic to do so, instead of going up to the next exit to turn around.

And...I'm notorious for trying to trap HOV violators in the HOV lane. There are days where 6-7 out of 10 cars that pass me in the HOV lane are single riders. Who do these people think they are?!?!?!

What makes my blood boil is when trying to merge onto an interstate, that is 4 lanes wide, you have someone hugging the right lane (the lane you are trying to merge into) and will not move over (even though there is plenty of room to do so)...will speed up so that you have to hit your brakes...and then slow down once you are behind them, to have to hit your brakes again.

I do have my faults...I'll ride the merging lane until the end, however I will have my turn signal on, and will merge over earlier if there is ample room to do so without people having to hit their brakes. If done properly, a zipper merge is quite effective.

Re: F... idiot drivers

I must say I learned to drive in the DC area and yes, once you can do that with all you crazy sob's you can drive anywhere! Especially on the 495-95 meet there at Springfield, what a cluster fuck that is!

Re: F... idiot drivers

I've lived in DC and LA. Sorry to tell you, but LA takes the cake when it comes to traffic and douchebag drivers. LA is like DC x 10!! I have had to learn to breathe and count because otherwise I'd be in jail for assault with a deadly weapon (my truck). I can't tell you how many times I have had to stop my self from using my vehicle like a tank.

And it's sad because not everyone was raised as a douchebag.

Once someone tries to do that to me, getting where I'm going becomes secondary to making their life miserable.

F idiot drivers is right.
THAT'S ME TOO. The non-use of turn signals is one of my biggest annoyances.

I also hate smokers who think they're exempt from the littering laws, especially when their flaming garbage hits my car's paintjob.

People who think they're driving a phone booth...

Then there's people who don't turn headlights on when it's almost dark. I usually pull out in front of them because after all, how do they expect people to see them without lights on.

Re: F... idiot drivers

Speaking of smokers, anyone see that interview with people from New York and New Jersey talking about the new laws?

This one girl came on and was like, "BLEEP that law. If you don't smoke, you're a loser trust me. EVERYONE smokes. Everyone is grubbin' cigarattes."

Never in my life have I wanted to smack a bitch before like this girl.
