I hate "rubberneckers" and "sympathy brakers".
define sympathy brakers: The idiots who stand on their brakes just because the
guy in the lane next to him touches his/her brakes to slow slightly, either to
let traffic off or on the freeway or perhaps for some other reason. Directly
related to "rubberneckers". Another MAJOR cause of traffic jams.
