Of course I see douchebags driving all sorts of vehicles, but 9/10 BMW drivers are douchebags. I am so familiar with these asshats that I can differentiate BMW douchebaggery from just normal driver idiocy without even recognizing the model of car.

Another vote for the Prius.

They aren't the only slow drivers, but they seem to be the the epicenter of fearful driving and arrogance. No matter what I am driving, they give me dirty looks, hold their nose (referring to my exhaust), and become offended by my use of legal passing lanes. Those drivers will be quite happy when all cars are automated and drive in single file lines.

And...all you driving rental rv's this summer.

10mph under the speed limit. Weaving back and forth over the double yellow line and never caring to check your side view mirrors so that you won't see 2 dozen cars and trucks lined up behind you.
Probably a regional thing but if you live or travel in northern AZ or southern UT, then you know what I'm talking about.
Mostly piloted by seniors but a high number of European tourists rent these too.

Picking a particular car, I will say Prius drivers are the worst, either creeping around for maximum MPG, or weaving through traffic like a squid on a sport bike.

In general I will say people with bumper stickers are the worst, It seems that those who need the world to know what political, religious, environmental, beliefs they have, or what motorcycle they polish behave like they are the center of the universe.

Liberal, Democrat, coexists, environmental bumper stickers = drivers who are clueless, making turns from the wrong lane, mid block U-turns, don't use turn signals, wander all over the road because they are texting. Daydreamers who pay little attention to their driving.

Conservative, Republican, religious, NRA bumper stickers = drivers who are aggressive, tailgating, excessive speeding, turn signals mean get out of my way, wander all over the road because they are talking on the phone. Selfish drivers who think they own the road.

Band, energy drink, DC, fox stickers = no skill driver that is a total dick.

And someone please explain to me why people who drive the most expensive vehicles never have a hands free/bluetooth phone?

They have no money for such devices; they spent it all on their cars. Actually, most expensive vehicles come equiped with hands free/bluetooth built in. Maybe its a matter of not being equiped with a brain that can figure out how to use the built in bluetooth.

Mustang drivers that want to race everyone.
Soccer moms in SUVs that do whatever they want and expect everyone else to live with it.
Contactors / move it yourselfers that drop ladders, TVs, Beds, chairs, all over the road.
Semi drivers that get all the mileage out of those retreads and only swap them when they take a shit going down the road.

Pickup truck, without a doubt. They straddle the center line on every rural corner when they're not swinging wide onto the shoulder kicking rocks and dirt all over the road. The ones really using the trucks for work are constantly on their cell phones while they eat breakfast in the cab and chat with their buddies. They're always the first off the road when there's snow and ice, and when it's dry they're all in the fast lane tailgating and passing everyone. Half the time they have some poorly secured load in the back, if parts of it haven't already fallen out to be left in the middle of the road. They throw their trash in the back and then let the wind take care of disposal. They often have some nasty bumper stickers on the back of the cab in the hopes someone will pick a fight.

Scariest: the minivan limp mobile. It has no side mirrors, bumper trailing behind, duct tape on at least one window, and a passel of kids rummaging around inside.

Second worst: People who have a death grip on the steering wheel sitting with their chest rubbing on it. They are terrified and will make you so.

As far as cars: Young women in huge SUVs. Only know two speeds wide open and screeching halt. I really believe that ABS is the worst thing that ever happened to cars. They no longer have to worry as much.

Trucks: rednecks in racetrucks. They wanna race everybody to prove there dinky isn't inversely as small as the lift on their truck, especially if they are shiny....who ever heard of a shiny truck...bunch of sissies.

I once informed my father in law that the steering wheel was not a life preserver, he was also not drowning, so therefore did not need to clutch it so tightly to himself in fear.
