"Escalades" and "assholes texting in SUVs" is the same thing. I voted for Escalades though, just because those things are so fucking stupid.

Just about everyone I know that has one of those roof top carriers has crashed their car into their garage. Think about it, they are out riding a bike, kayaking, etc all day long. They drive home tired and the last thing on their mind is the stuff on their roof as they pull into their garage. $5,000 carbon fiber bike ripped from the Yakima racks. It happens so much some bike companies are actually writing into their crash replacement warranties that crashing into your garage does not qualify.

BTW, my vote in this thread is to just about anyone not paying attention to their driving. I don't discriminate based on what they are driving. I just can't stand being behind someone that is obviously not focused on driving....

In the city, any car over 80K USD, as they own the road since they paid too much. On the highway in Calif it was a redneck in a white pickup coming home from work bitter about the commute and being passed by a non-Harley. By far the most aggressive were the white pickups.

Really ANYONE with the mental capacity, and attention span, of a zombie . . . . aboard any type of car.

But to attempt to narrow it down to plain alarm-bell type of vehicle . . . .
Hmmm! How about any black SUV with stickers on the rear window>




Easiest to recognize is a sticker like this one. It means "I have a baby in a capsule on the back seat that I'm keeping under observation instead of having my eyes on the road ahead, and to each quarter."

Truly, cellphones & tablets (laptops too?) in use by the driver present a deadly danger, but they are unlikely to display a rear-window sticker warning of that.

Mmmmm! Headphones on the driver! Or Bluetooth . . . .





Now this vehicle is not a black SUV
but the stickers mean: "I have no vision to the rear so following road users should drive with appropriate caution."


So, it can be the vehicle, or the warning stickers, but Top Danger Signal . . . . . observe the driver, or take note of their Driving Manner.

Most of us BMW drivers are the most curtious drivers on the road! We give the ADV wave when we pass everytime

Those fucking Subaru/Prius/eco hippies driving 45MPH on the freeway slowing traffic for miles and miles. Them types I cant get along with.

Where's the 'Soccer Moms' choice. Regardless of what they're driving, they'll run your ass over 'cause inevitably they're either late, on the phone, or with a car full of kids and they're not paying effing attention

Most courteous are *usually* delivery drivers.

...but just like in the bicycles on the road thread, come in all shapes and sizes. You just don't know till you know.
