Nice. Thanks for sharing. I'm going with teens because they have a nasty habit of trying to race you when you try to pass them especially the ricer ones. Not only that but teen girls have a nasty habit of texting while driving.
For me , the elderly aren't nearly as bad. They tend to go slower than the flow of traffic but a simple lane change or patience will get me around them.
Sounds to me like a teen is more likely to get plastered late at night, run off the road, flip his pickup truck and kill himself because he wasn't wearing his seat belt. Granny is more likely to make a left turn in front of me in broad daylight and kill me because she has piss poor depth perception and ability to make quick decisions anymore.
The good news is all this happens in Laser Alley so I know they will get pwoned.
Texting is my number one pet peeve.
wow that is a tough question. I think it would probably have to be elderly people who are more dangerous, just because the older they get the worse they will get, plus there is that whole issue of no one wanting to deny an elder of keeping their license. With teens in most cases as they get older they wise up and drive safer, plus no one gives a dang about taking their license away
Grannies. Most blue hairs can't/won't turn their heads.
Plus at least teens drive fast in general ... there's nothing worse than getting stuck behind some old man doing 20.
Personally I feel safer sharing the road with old farts than teenagers/early twenty-somethings (no offense to anyone here in either category). Yeah, the farts piss me off now and then with their slow driving but I don't see them making the blatent bad moves and the dangerously poor choices as teens, which tend to make me go beyond pissed off... into the realm of ballistic. Never had a grandma in a fart can car try to race me or play dodge cars when I'm just minding my business on the way to some place. The same thing which makes good soldiers (young men with high risk behavior, disregard for others and immortality complexes) almost makes them poor drivers. An example of this type of thing:

Tough call on this one, both have pros and cons.
I'm still split. I just drove about 40 miles and got stuck behind this old ford ranger in the LL. He finally and slowly drifted over to the middle lane with no turn signal. As I looked at the driver, he was 16 or 17 years old with two hands on his cell phone texting. Then I looked at the front of his truck in my RVM and the whole passenger side looked it hit a telephone pole. Wonder how that happened.
A good thing about the new teen drivers is they make good rabbits with their crapola's in the windshield. They don't know the difference between instant on and a stop sign.
I feel like making giant flash cards for these idiots.
