question of the day which car causes the most traffic

Today's query is of the decidedly non-scientific variety (unlike yesterday's…). For the second time in as many days, there I was cruising in the fast lane when suddenly I had to brake from around 75 mph down to 63 mph. The freeway curved enough for me to see what the hold-up was. It was a damn Toyota Corolla. I'm not fibbing, either. Twice, in consecutive days, a Corolla was lollygagging in the left lane, wrecking it for everybody else. Yesterday, the horrible irony was that there were two Corollas in the next lane happily trudging along at maybe the speed limit. Meaning I was trapped. Today, there was a Datsun B210. It took a while, but I managed to get free and clear. The day before? Trapped like a rat. A slow rat. I posit that the Corolla, and the mentality that drives a Corolla, causes the most traffic. You?

    Pretty much anything with tinted windows. The only safe place to ride a bicycle down a road with a bunch of those parked along the side is smack in the middle, drawing as many honks from behind as possible.

    I would add to some previous votes by submitting: Any Buick with a "AAA" sticker on the back bumper.

    Used to be chevettes down south and pintos up north. Now there are many cheap cars, but they are not speed limited anymore.

    Lieberman, RE: Driver's Ed Thats why I have a 3 inch catless turbo back exhaust and my BOV is vented to atmosphere. Baptism by fire I say, scares the sht out of some 15 year old hair twirlling bublegum popping twit who thinks that she'll get a better grade on her driving test if she goes 10 under. Nothing like an uncorked 20 pounds of boost on a quick spooling K04 to wake your ass up... losGatos, RE: M3 Hope your willing to shell out a $30k dealer cost adjustment.
