Do you give other Prii preferential treatment on the road?

    I always try to give other Prii preferential treatment because we already take so much BS from all the Prius haters on the road. I try to help out other Prii even when I'm driving one of my other cars.
    It's a shame that this Persona Series didn't let this Gen 4 change lanes in front of him. The guy in the Gen 4 is probably an Uber driver as well as a Prius driver so he's dealing with bs 16 hours a day from drivers, passengers as well as Uber stealing money from him.

    Nope! Everyone gets the same from me. I'm nice to driver's that are considerate. I don't decide with 50 ft left in a 55mph zone that I need to cut across 3 lanes to get on the freeway.

    i can't think that fast. i try to be courteous to everyone. but if the are looking at there phone, i give no sway.

    the person in the red prius may not even have noticed. the guy with road rage looks like a menace to society.

    the one situation that really bothers me is people who drive up the break down lane to pass as many cars as possible before being forced to pull into the next lane. i try not to let them in.

    There are 3 or 4 identical white Prii like mine in my rural area, we give each other a finger wave. Not the middle one either..

    He probably just received an uber job when he was in the right turn lane that required him to be in the left most lane.
    If he's late to pick up the passenger, he could get a 1 star rating or even a false accusation of him driving drunk and get deactivated from Uber.

    Those stars are more important than lives. This is coming from someone who has had several vehicles totalled, and left for dead twice, after being hit by driver's not paying attention or under the influence. I'm lucky to be alive.

    I wish police would take videos from dash cams and give tickets

    Seriously? No excuse for that. Just go straight and then loop around instead of sitting there like an asshat. He fucked up by getting in the wrong lane. Own it and don't screw over everyone else because you're too stupid to pay attention to where you're going. In Boston, if you pop out of the car like that you better be ready to throw down. There is no mercy here, especially now.

    No.
    But I do give preference, superior awarness to motorcyclists.

    The jerk is obviously an IDIOT!!!
    But what you should have done was put your left turn signal on and was there
    was an opening, pull over and go around the idiot. And try to stay close to the
    car you pulled in behind she he couldn't pull out....
