As you know, everyone’s horrible at driving except you. You’re perfect. ‘Consumer Reports’ just released the results of a survey where people ranked the 20 most annoying things other drivers do on a scale of one to 10.

And the most annoying behavior is…texting while driving. It got an average score of 8.9 out of 10. That puts it just ahead of able-bodied people parking in handicapped spots, which got an 8.7.

The least annoying thing was the only item on the list connected to the radio, because radio is a fantastic and flawless medium. People who crank the volume on their radio too high only averaged a 5.7 out of 10 for annoyingness. So, turn it up!

Here’s the full list of the 20 most annoying things other drivers do:

#1.) Texting while driving, 8.9 out of 10.

#2.) Able-bodied drivers parking in handicapped spots, 8.7.

#10.) Not using turn signals, 7.5.
