Driving Pet Peeve Parking Asbury Park New Jersey

Driving in New Jersey can be a frustrating, infuriating, and infuriating activity.

Is it necessary to travel in the Garden State? Absolutely because using public transport can be difficult and extremely time consuming.

It’s not New York…thankfully. *little*

I want you to think about your biggest driving peeve….your fists just clenched, right?

We asked and you delivered.

Here are some of the most common driving frustrations according to YOU:

New Jersey’s Biggest Driving Pet According to YOU!

Here are the biggest driving peeves people face while on the roads of New Jersey.

But after taking a three months off drivingI find I have new driving bugs that thrive because people piss me off on the roads of New Jersey.

I don’t know if I’m overly sensitive but MY GOODNESS, enough with the nerve.

Let me explain.

There are plenty of places parallel parking is a must on the Jersey Shore and in a recent incident at Asbury Park I felt my face turn red.

Please allow me to use visuals so I know my description is clear.

For this story, I’m the blue car and the person I’m having trouble with is in the dark gray car in the photo.

I was visiting an old friend and had to parallel park on the street.

As I pulled up I noticed someone was sitting in their car behind me (i.e. the gray car). No big deal…I tracked my day and kept parking….

As I backed up to make sure my car didn’t overturn on the street, this woman behind me decided to lean on her horn and honk while I still had at least a foot and a half of space behind me

As if I didn’t already see her behind me….

Like I don’t have a backup camera in my car to alert me to his car behind me….

Like I was deliberately stepping on the accelerator and backing into his vehicle while watching myself do it….


And rear view cameras are nothing new. They have become a standard feature of vehicles manufactured since 2018.

I know what you’re thinking: “Nicole, relax!” She just wanted to make sure you didn’t hit her vehicle!

This isn’t the only place I’ve had this set up.

Even when backing into a grocery store parking lot – where people and cars drive in and out like crazy – people honked when I was moving slowly and had more than two feet of empty space from their car.

It’s just like…really?

I understand, the horn is there to alert other drivers.

But drivers can also be “Horn Happy” and honk their horns even when not necessary.

It is odious!

I see you freaking out, man!

OK, declaim. Whether it’s an unpopular opinion or not, email me your thoughts at [email protected].

Let’s say people are testing my patience on the road these days.

Thanks for reading my rant.

Next time you’re hitting those New Jersey roads, head somewhere worth it to make all that frustration worth it!
