I hate that one. People think by tailgating me they'll make the car in front of me go faster.

Xcelratr you make a good point, but owners of certain cars do have very specific trends, so its easy to lump them together.

I've actually noticed a lot of Prius drivers drive really fast and tailgate me all the time.

Around here you can pretty much nail the demographics of the driver by the car/behavior. I'll tell you one thing, for being over all the time...black dudes are never speeding or doing anything stupid.

The only times I personify cars is when they don't use their blinkers and in turn become ass holes.

What kind of car to buy is a decision, just like how to drive is a decision. People's personalities affect their decisions, so I can totally see how the type of person someone is determines what they choose to drive, AND how they choose to drive it. I totally get that.

The problem is there isn't any one driving quirk that's exclusive to any car or type of car. Left lane hogs, speeders, ricky racers, distracted drivers, . There isn't a single trend you can name that's monopolized by any one model or even type of car.

Well when pulling up on a vehicle you have to guess whether the driver is W-white, B- black, A-asian, M-mexican solely based on what the vehicle looks like while pulling up on it or seeing it at an angle before the driver is visible. We also come up with sayings for the letters on license plates, able to get real creative with some of them

In GA we have "Support Education" plates and you can pretty much guarantee that these "educated people" will do something stupid. Most are left lane hangers and I'll say the same thing for vehicles with a Firefighter plates. I guess these plates give them a license to drive like they are in an EV.

I actually don't see it that way around here. Most cars don't really have a specific type of driver behind the wheel. When I notice a car doing something stupid or asshole-ish, and I get the chance to see the driver, more than likely they'll be a certain type of person (as in the WBAM thing and/or male or female).

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

I actually play a variant of this game and am also pretty good at it, I add categories for old people too.

Maroon car + tints = black 99.99% of the time
