I have periodically listed some of my pet peeves about what drivers do. Someone has made a compilation of many of them.
The one that puzzles me the most is where someone will speed up when it looks like another person will pass them. That is weird. I know people who have admitted to doing this and when I ask them why they care if a total stranger happens to pass them, they can never give a sensible reason. It just seems to be some deep-seated instinct, some kind of dominance-submission reflex that gets engaged by this act.
I do recall that as child, on the occasions when the extended family of uncles, aunts, and cousins got together, we would sometimes go somewhere like the beach in a convoy of vehicles. Then the little boys in the different cars (and it was always just the boys, never the girls) would claim bragging rights if the car we were in got to the destination first, and we would cheer when we passed another along the way
Most of us outgrew that childishness. But it looks like not everyone does.
