People who smack their gum.  Drives me up a wall.

We have a lot of pet peeves in common. I'm with you on the cell phones as well.

Slow drivers...and by "slow", I mean anything less than 5-10 miles above the speed limit.

Funny thing is, I just mailed in the payment to another speeding ticket today.  :-\

The person who keeps parking in my parking spot.  Seriously, I know s/he doesn't know the rules since they just moved in, but I've been there for 3 years and it's my effing space.  Back. the. hell. off.  Go purchase your city permit to park on the street, ya vagrant!

You actually got nailed going 5-10 over the speed limit?

Cops must be diligent where you are.

I always appreciated that cops in ON seemed to have better things to do than nail speeders.  Then again, when everyone drives 130-140km/hr, who is really speeding?

Exactly. Tim Hortons. It's nice having a semi-Canadian around to back me up. There's a 0.000001% chance you'll get nailed for speeding on the highway. I drove to London via 401 doing a constant 145k.

Actually, I tend to drive an average of 15-20 over on main roads - but I did get a ticket last summer on the Prince Edward Viaduct for going 25 over. The cop just cut me a ticket for 10 over with no demerit points.

It's funny, I was rushing to the UofT library downtown to return books that would have cost me 4 dollars on overcharge, and I ended up paying 40 for a speeding ticket.

What's this "km" that you speak about?  ??? ???

2nd. I've only seen Newark airport. And that was MORE THAN enough.
