When people try to merge onto the highway while going 20 mph under the speed limit. Or better yet, braking on the on-ramp, even coming to a complete stop while trying to merge into traffic.

I-75 is probably one of the worst (best?) sections of highway for seeing weird crap on the road.

1) Other drivers in SUV's not seeing me

2) People that insist on racing me. It seems I'm a magnet on the freeway for almost every "hot" car that is in a 100 yard radius.

You got that right, I'm just glad it's not part of my daily commute. More close calls than I am comfortable with.

Something else you don't want to do on I-75!

Driving at dusk on the Florida Turnpike, I came up behind a Subaru SUV with a bicycle hanging on its rear hatch. I started noticing sparks from the bicycle rubbing the road surface. I started to leave more space behind it and sure enough, the whole bicycle came flying off. Luckily with the amount of space that I had left between us, I was able to steer clear of the debris. That was one close call.

-People who cruise below the speed limit on the left lane of the highway.

-The person who beeps when the light changes green.

-THOSE MASSIVE POT HOLES THAT ARE UNAVOIDABLE

-When you hear real crickets and you think its your car.

-That one road that is just a mine field of rocks and pot holes.

-When the car behind you is on your bumper on that really steep hill.

-The snapchatter/texter whose on their phone for 5 miles.

-When you can't see over something because you are to low to the ground.

-That one driveway you can't go up without scrapping something.
So your pet peeves of driving an FT-86 are the same as driving any other car.

My only specific peeve with driving the FR-S is that I don't have more opportunities to take extended road trips with it. If you're asking about pet peeves about driving in general on roads where other people are present, that's a WHOLE 'nother kettle-o-fish...
