Because the Prius isn't fast enough unless this happens

Notice how they call the Prius a "premium model"

Joke's on them - I've driven multiple brands I don't think I'm an asshat - I'm pretty courteous on the roads. I just can't stand Prius's and minivans - worst drivers on the road. The Prius drivers around here are just pure assholes and drive extremely fast (which ruins the point of the vehicle). The minivans are also some of the fastest cars in the world - every soccer mom driver I've seen zips along in traffic at crazy speeds, and I'm thinking there's kids in there WTF?!

The mere fact that you think highly of your own road manners and look down upon other drivers already spells J-E-R-K.




















Attaboy. You make us so proud!

Haha, way to twist what I said. I don't look upon other drivers - that wasn't the intent of my post nor do I regard myself as a model driver. I just stated I am courteous on the road, this is all. If being courteous to other drivers/pedestrians makes me a jerk, then yes, I'm guilty of being a jerk. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what brand you drive - there are just assholes everywhere...

LMAO i have a Le ans Blue 135, and although I'm actually courteous most of the time and allow people to cross or go ahead of me, I find that i do get easily aggravated when people are driving slow in front of me, are in the left lane going slow and not moving over for me or a car trying to get around, or generally anyone who doesn't drive correctly simply sets me off at the drop of a hat

edit: i DO live in Miami and we are known to have the nation's worst drivers supposedly in my defense

Think I'm an asshole because I wanted to get in the lane you're in and got in front of you? Well fuck you.
Think I'm an asshole for driving slightly faster than you? Well then fuck you.

I'm driving safer than most people on the road, and I'm an asshole? To try to make sure I don't look like an asshole to the driver of the car I'm about to get in front of when switching lanes, I'll keep my blinker on longer than usual to see if they'll give me room. That's as far as I'll go to try to look like a "good" driver. If you still think I'm an asshole, well fuck you then.
Whether or not you drive like an asshole, I cannot ascertain, but you certainly sound like one.
Oh come on...are you gonna talk nicely to a bitch ass driver who thinks YOU'RE an asshole, or are you gonna talk like an asshole to the bitch ass driver who thinks you're an asshole?

Holy shit, this thread is hysterical.

Prius drivers, just do all us BMW drivers a favor, and move out of the fast lane if you are driving slow. I'm sorry, but just because you want to drive 55 mph on the freeway so you can get your precious mileage, and feeling of superiority that you got one over the gas companies, doesn't mean you should clog and block everyone else. We get it. You care about the environment (maybe) and are saving some bucks on gas...But when I get stuck behind one of you, in my tuned BMW (almost FBO), it just is too hysterical to pass around you and be on my way in like 2.1 seconds..

I have a boss who's wife drives a prius. I sometimes have to move cars around in the parking lot at work. You can not even tell if the car is on or not, it's so quiet. And the interior is cloth and she must workout in the morning and drive around in the car afterwards, because that prius smells like my highschool gym (gag) LOL

I do not think I am that big of a jerk driving... Maybe at times I could be, but for the most part, I try to be polite, and really just watch out for other idiot drivers out there. I do not want anything to happen to my car, so I am always extra cautious about everything and anything. Plus my bmw is not blue or silver lol

Anyone that's ever been to a Whole Foods parking lot knows Prius drivers can be some of the most overly aggressive and jerk drivers out there.
I refuse to park near them.

They're driving so slowly because they're focused on that MFD which gives them instant fuel economy reading.....THIS make them DANGEROUS as they aren't paying attention to TRAFFIC!!! Also, they seem to have this "holier than thou" attitude which causes them to speed up ONLY when you try to pass after being stuck behind them as they try to regulate everyone else's speed....

This. You have to try to put the car in gear to see if it actually is on. I like my shit (Edit: Change shit to cars) loud; if you don't like it, fuck you!

Try a Texas plate in OC. I either get a "don't mess with him he has a gun" look or a "FU you're from Texas"

jokes on them. I will cut off a Prius even if I'm going down the street in a TRACTOR. Even if I sold my M3 I'd still hate slow pedestrians. Why on earth a pedestrian wants to spend more time than they need to in traffic is beyond me. I power walk that sh*t because I am not a hypocrite and don't wanna spend 29 seconds crossing a street when I can do it in 12. In fact, by keeping up the flow of traffic so people don't have to brake and re-accelerate whether I'm walking or driving does good for the environment too. Take that prius losers.

This article is incorrect. Seat Ibiza drivers are in fact Jerks. My motorway drive on Monday had me undertaken by 3 Ibizas - all different colours, drivers, and times. They shoved into the smallest gap forcing me to brake in the fast lane otherwise I would have smooshed the front end into their crappy little "cars". A******s! BMW drivers are good drivers.
