Is it just tires or also how high the truck has been jacked up?

You summarized a lot of my experiences with that description. Thanks.

Probably because typically they might have more torque than the average sedan, even some luxury models, so they feel like they can own the road.

Whenever you see jacked up trucks with jerk drivers just say "Sorry about your penis!"

I have more trouble with prius drivers. I stay away from big trucks and suvs as they sometimes literally cant even see you.

If they can't figure it out on their own, they never will. That's the difference between "sheeple" and people.

I stay away from lifted trucks and SUVs (even though I own a PUV) b/c a lot of times, the wider tires will stray into the shoulder, picking up debris and spraying it.

Yea ppl look at me strange when im strafing halfway into the next lane when passing huge trucks, bigrigs, buses exactly because of crap flying out of their tires.

Its funny because when i look back, you see a row of cars doing the same thing. Must be a good idea if it causes a mokey see monkey do chain reaction

Anyone else noticed this? I'm very conscious that I'm not causing anything either. Or maybe it's just Arizona... as some have told me we're basically a red-neck state without an identifiable slur of speech.

Poll to be posted here too.
All the freakin time. And when my family's is not in the car I often confront them! I always smile inside when I get out of the car and they see a large pissed of dude!

That's one thing I really wish police would enforce more often - the illegal practice of putting on oversized wheels on pickup trucks without the flaps. They're damaging other cars every time they drive, whether it is windshield or paint damage. They know they're doing this too, but they just don't care.

I once left a note on a truck that said:

"Nice truck!!! Sorry about the small penis "

Had an issue today with some jerk in a big truck.

On the way home from work the guy following me in a big truck almost slammed into me when I slowed down so the car in front of me could turn. Then he decided to come around me in the center turn only lane and pace me and scream profanities.

Yes, pickup drivers do. The same goes for Mercedes- even more so. The Diesel F-250s ALWAYS want to race my GL450. ALWAYS. The last guy raced me to see who would win the merge. I won. After I let him pass when we both came onto the highway he king of just laughed as I passed as if he knew he would lose, but just wanted to race a "Mercedes-Benz"... I think the same goes for BMW too. Funny, though. This never happened in my 2010 IS350.

My wife drives an F150 FX4, no wonder she's always riding my a$$ :-)

BMW is pretty common where we're at, I had more trouble when I had my 97 Cobra convertible than with any other car I've owned. Was keyed twice, dirty looks, merge trouble, people smack talking at red lights, etc...

I drove my 2006 Limited AWD Sienna for 3 years and I drove it aggressively. In 2008 I ordered my 2009 M3. I sensed it then with the Washington DC Rednecks, but after the M3 not so much. I. Too busy cutting the mother F*****kers off to even noticed. They are just a distance memory in my rear view mirror.

Yep, I noticed the same thing. I usually return aggression right back at them.

If they tailgate I get aggressive by slowing down on purpose and then speed up if they try to pass angrily. This makes them even more mad and I just enjoy enraging them. It gives me such pleasure!

They have threatened by getting into my line, flipping me off and signaling to pull over and get into a fight. I usually respond by going into their lane also or cutting them off.

Then again, I have anger management issues as well, which probably doesn't help, but sure feels good to annoy them to the fullest. I wish they all flipped over and totaled their worthless trucks. Considering how unstable and unsafe they are they drive way too fast.

Appreciate your honesty. I'm a courteous driver but will play "tit for tat" if others are not the same. Don't blame you at all. I wish more people would stand up to the bullies of the road, as someone else described them.

Exactly. Tit for tat! I am also the nicest driver you'll meet if you treat me right. I wave to people who let me in. I move over immediately to people who are faster than me in left lane. I let others into my line readily and try to be patient as humanely possible with senior people.

With jerks though I turn into road rage myself.

Funnily enough, I sold my 3/4 ton Dodge 4x4 diesel for an X5. I now also notice these giants trucks coming up on me pretty closely, especially when I'm driving my wife's 1-series.

perhaps you still have enough "cred" to go back to those truck people and set them straight?
