And...

City buses and sometimes, LEO. Otherwise, around here it would be hard to group based on what they drive. Plenty of douchebaggery in expensive German cars, beat up old American cars, fart can equipped Civics, SUV's, et al. Also some polite, cool people in all the same types of cars.

I think a douche is gonna be a douche no matter what they drive - cars or bikes!

Might be a local thing for me. Silver or black truckish or SUVish, jacked up, mit Raiders markings.

Anything lifted is almost automatically going to be a jackass around here (Midwest).

In fact I also have a theory, yet to be proven, that the amount of lift on any vehicle is inversely proportional to the penis size of the operator.

I also have a theory for motorcyclist's that goes:

Average Penis Size + Hours spent riding - ($ spent in chrome)($ paid for hayabusa)(Db of exhaust)

This x100... I've always just referred to them as F-Dudes.. Though with the downturn of the construction economy in Phoenix there are fewer douche bags able to finance $60k trucks. They all have sunburned faces with the outlines of the oakly's they wear on the job pouring cement.

I rode (once) with my F-Dude neighbor who took great joy in cranking up his chip at stoplights simply to smoke the hell out of the person behind him...

For my money the worst is any female on the road during the day in Scottsdale, AZ... It's their road, they simply allow others to use it when it's convenient for them.. They're all just white trash from the midwest who banged the boss, became the trophy wife and now think their husband's money has somehow transformed them into a high class of human.

Women in general

Comming from the most populated state and one that has more cars than people, My vote goes to women drivers in general but most specifically ones that put on makeup while driving. Add that to the fact that a large number of those drive oversize SUV's, have their seat way too far forward, text like it's the end of the world and you have a recipe for disaster.
My gripe is why the makeup anyway? Most of them have a serious weight problem and the last time I looked, there was no makeup for that short of a gym membership.

I don’t know about women drivers being douchebags. When I think of douchebag drivers I think of agro drivers tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic and intentionally driving like asshats. Now, if your talking about bad, distracted drivers who are oblivious to the world beyond their windshield, then women get my vote hands down. Why is it so many women feel driving a vehicle comes second to whatever other task they feel like performing at the time?

Also voted SUV (driving texters should have their thumbs removed) but If I had to single out one car brand it would be Volvo.

Like Hummer drivers, it seems what is outside of their personal coccoon doesn't matter.

Because women love to brag about how "good" they are at multitasking. Which is total bullshit. Everyone sucks at multitasking -- men just admit it. Even if you are better than the average monkey at multitasking, (god I even hate the word) doing it while DRIVING is a stupid fucking idea.

I've noticed that when my wife is driving, the more she talks to me the slower she drives and the more oblivious she becomes to her surroundings. If we are both being quiet she is a perfectly competent driver. "Multitasking," my ass.

Something about aggressive hybrid drivers seems to chap my ass. I expect it from some guy driving an H2, but isn't the whole point of driving those"friendly" cars to show respect for the earth and your fellow man and all that crap? When a Prius blows by me at 90mpg and starts tailgating and cutting people off I wanna yank their granola luvin' ass out through their vent window.

My theory is that like Volvos of the past, Prius 'drivers' don't want to or like to drive.

I had a pair of em pass me (on my bicycle) into oncoming traffic yesterday. First one went 100m and turned into their subdivision. Second one just kept going. The incidents were 30min apart.

In London hybrids are exempt from the congestion charge. Here they are generally driven by the kind of people who, going by the way they step on the gas between traffic lights, seem to hate the idea of being eco-friendly but are prepared to put up with the humiliation of driving an "eco-friendly" car in order save a few sovs - which they then waste by driving too hard

Nobody mentioned the slowly moving roadblocks wearing a HAT. Wife was the first to notice this, years ago.

Not the ball cap turned around nit-wit (that's a different sub-category) but the middle age and beyond, hat wearing, oblivious to anyone else, retiree. They will be piloting a Mercury Marquis or some other variation of modern luxo-barge.

Large groups of this species tend to accumulate in Florida, especially in winter.
