Proper usage of the brakes is a difficult concept for many as for every person doing as you say there's about five brake tappers.

Brakes tappers are as bad as accelerator tappers.

I drove with a co-worker the other day and they were on the accelerator and off then on then off, etc. I felt like I was gonna throw up. Pick a speed and maintain it.

Alright CP.. what’s your thoughts.

Grinds my gears, when people walking their dogs, let it piss in the middle of my lawn.. Why can’t they let it piss on the strip that the city owns? Nah, they have their extension leash half way out and it leaks on my grass/little tree I planted.

I always take my dog straight to a park near my house at the beginning of walks to he does his business there but sometimes he just goes on a neighbor's lawn and there's not a lot I can do about it. I don't feel so bad because I have a lot of burn marks on my front lawn and they aren't from my dog.

This is the only reason I'm happy the previous owners of our house fenced in the front yard.

When I walk my dog I keep her on the boulevard side of things and off people's lawns as much as I can.

As soon as one dog goes there, it's the community spot.

I hate people like this.

It is worse with brake tappers though. Every day I get home after driving on Deerfoot in bumper to bumper traffic I feel like I was just at a disco bar.

Brake lights flashing like a strobe light all the way home.

For the record I have never been in a disco bar, but imagine this is how it feels.

If you have to replace your brakes on you vehicle every two years from simply driving to and from work you should lose your license.

My brakes have 40 percent left on them after 4 years. They would have more life left in them if not for the brake tappers.

Hit your brakes when you want to stop, otherwise just take your foot off the gas peddle. You will slow down!

Riding with a driver that drives on or off is worse than a roller coaster.

Yeah if they can't figure out brakes, a clutch would just be a mystery. Missing three light cycles as they stall their life away doesn't sound fun. These people need to be given bus passes not a third pedal.

My favourite drivers are the ones who think their tail lights are always on. I bet half of those people don't even know what a tail light is. Is that the brake light?

When we had those huge rains a month ago I was driving Stoney Trail and you couldn't see 5 feet ahead and half the morons on the road didn't have any lights on.

This is the fault of bad manufacturing. On should be the default when in auto. Some manufacturers have this correct and others donít.
