I have a problem with people driving 10 miles UNDER the speed limit, alternating left and right blinkers and swerving all over the road. that's annoying and much more dangerous then streetracing will ever be.
You are quite wrong.
When one is a defensive driver, one can deal with the idiot driver as stated in your post. I would have no problem with said idiot driver.
No matter how defensive a driver you are, you can't stop in time to save your life if you pull into an intersection and a street racer t-bones you going 100 mph. At that speed, it'll be a case of "He appeared out of nowhere"... It'll also probably be a case of a dead motorist.
