Just a quick question...

\My first poll so be gentle lol....As I made my morning commute, began to think about the different times cagers tried to splatter me. This also made me realize the different types of dangerous cagers.
1) The Pusher- whose goal is to push you out of the way to take your lane,
2) The Cutter- who always has the heart to leave two inched in front before lane changing

3) The Chaser- tailgating at its finest, no matter the speed

4)The Braker-all brakes all the time with the occasionally "OMG Super Duper Brake Slam."

So I wanted to make a poll to get a consensus on what riders encounter the most while riding. Feel free to mention others I may have forgotten.

I hate the ones who think they need to squeeze their way into your always shrinking space cushion in front. You leave a 3 length gap and they think you made the gap for them.

All four of my instances of running out of skill was due to cutters. I used to have issues a lot with them, but that has reduced after I developed better lane position and picked up a retina searing atomic yellow jacket.

Hmm...I should probably clean it so it works better...

tailgater and braker is the same person...
They leave no space between them and the car ahead forcing them to hit the brakes all the time even with the slightest change of speed of the car ahead

It IS unfortunate that the LEO frown upon that, even if it IS for our safety.

Although yes, a lot of women can't drive.


Around me, it's the triple and quadruple threats.
