So one thing that drives me nuts as a passenger is when the driver just keeps staring through their fogged up windshield, not bothering to turn that dial to defrost and turn the fan up a few notches.
This has happened multiple times with me. I try to be a good passenger, I don't complain that their car is dirty as sin or that their windows look like they've NEVER been washed, but how can they NOT see the fact that their windshield is fogged up beyond belief and that the manufacturer has graciously provided a convenient way to do away with that so that you can SEE where you are going?
This has happened on multiple occassions with a few different pals and I just don't get it.

I don't like it when people smoke in their car with the windows up. Please don't destroy my lungs too.

I hate it when people drive older cars with nice soft brakes and wait til the last second to do any braking whatsoever. I always feel like we're going to rear end the person in front of us.
I also hate it when people can't maintain a consistent speed.

Re: FV-QR (bcramer v2.0)

when it's really hot outside (FL weather) and they decide they're just gonna put the windows down instead of turn the A/C on

Or when they stay on the left lane and refuse to move to the right lane.
Even though there's noone on the right lane.
Or plain underinflated tires.

Drive significantly slower than surrounding traffic.

...I'd politely say something like, "Dude, you should really get that looked at as soon as possible because that's just irritating as hell," then lightly chuckle afterward.

...er... how 'bout people that have to GO TEN MILES OVER the speed limit just to overtake and pass you, then swerve back in front of you, only to be found less than a hundred yards ahead and stopped at a light behind a line of cars that were there before them!

Re: things other people do in their car that irritate you (peachypotpies)

1) Driving with no lights on and it's dusk or just past dusk.
2) When your setting at an intersection turning left and the cars turning left on the right side of the intersection glare, stare or look at you as they go by. Even worse as it seems like they are purposely trying to turn into you as close as they possibly can without hitting you even though you are legally behind the cross walk

3) Cars next to you at a light that pull up and get next to you and are either starring at you or looking at your car/ truck.
4) People that roll down the window and spit. This is about the grossest thing while driving to me. I've actually had a guy spit and seen a little bit of spray on my windshield because of it

5) Loud bass coming from a crappy car and having all the blue hairs look at me because it looks like the [email protected]$%*#% bass could be coming from my car.

I relate that to a windshield completely glazed-over with winter salt-n-sand spray, when road conditions are always less than optimal.
If I, as a passenger, can not see out the entire windshield, why do I trust you as the driver to pilot this craft while essentially blinded by spray and glare all over the windscreen??? Don't you know how to time bursts of washer spray to fully clean the swept-path of the wipers while at speed? ay carumba!

If I'm a passenger while someone else is driving and they are trying to maintain a fairly consistent speed:
