The Surburban Driver

    I drive practically everyday, I have to as I live north of the city so I am on the highway quite a bit. Lately I have noticed an abundance of poor drivers on the road, not just the usual you're in my way driver, but a more menacing enemy - The Surburban Driver.

    The Surburban Driver is an old phenomenon but with a new name. This driver is a menace to the road and to us all. This is the driver who infuriates you as you make your way home, to work or to any fun-filled evening/day. The Surburban Driver has no idea what the hell is going on and continues to drive like Ray Charles has had a few drinks and wanted a kick, so he asked for someones keys.

    There are too many examples I can give of my run-in with the Surburban Driver, especially tonight, as I made my way to work, but I will spare you the details. I will say this though, as "safe" as the Surburban driver thinks he/she is driving, they are actually doing more bad than good.

    end of rant....

    THe Surburban Driver is just a bad driver. The SD is the person who drivers slow in the fast lane, the person who makes getting to work a chore, the person who infuriates you to no end, they could be smoking a cigarette, talking on the phone, eating something or tossing off, who knows - it is just a term I have coined for poor drivers.

    Are Suburban Drivers notoriously bad drivers?!?! I don't get it. My friend had a Suburban up at about 170-180 before. It didn't handle very well.

    Are you talking about drivers from the suburbs ... or people who drive Suburbans
    Cause I've noticed that people who drive Suburbans think they own the damn road
    I wish I had a James bond car so I could fuck wit bad drivers
    Like in Living Daylights ... with missles in your headlights
    That would be pretty sweet

    ohh, I don't mean people who drive the actual automobile named Surburban. When I say Suburban Driver, I am referring to their driving skills.

    Suburbia = not as fast paced as downtown etc.

    And you're right, big vehicles like Suburbans have terrible handling at top speeds, I'd feel very unsafe in one if someone was going faster than 150kph.

    I feel stupid, I thought it was the car.

    Now I understand your post. :)

    I suppose the way I wrote it I made it out to be that I was making fun of people who drive Suburbans, so don't feel stupid.

    I just hate slow drivers and people who driver like they got their license in a box of cereal.

    I agree... I HATE the drivers who are completely oblivious to what is going on around them, whether it be faster traffic, turn signals, the weather, whatever. It seems that they are so zoned out you could run their car over with a monster truck and it would still take them about 33 seconds to notice.

    The worst is that when you honk at them they think you're being the dick and not that they've been sitting at a green light idling for 30 seconds which makes them the dick.

    They stoped making the suburban. It's called the Yukon XL now :)

    End of useless fact.

    :( <--- Big SUV's are the only kinds of automobiles that I can comfortably fit in.

    this dümass van driver this morning pissed me off ... well sorta, it really doesn't matter since he's a dümass. he's driving along, i'm behind him, no problems. then he starts slowing down and i was all: "wha'th'fuk?" so i proceed to pass him on the right 'cuz it was annoying. then he sped up and i was all: "wha'th'fuk?" so i had to get back behind him 'cuz the lane was turning into a right turn only lane.

    then he gave me the 'naughty, naughty' finger wag.

    so i gave him the 'italian chin swipe'

    then he decides to turn left shortly afterwards. and he stared at me as i drove by. i stared back and winked.

    i hate dümass drivers.
