Something I never saw in the Midwest but is pretty common in Washington, is parking lots in which the spaces do not line up rank to rank. When the spaces do line up, it is easy to place your car in the space by observing the space in the next rank.
Another aggravation: I watched the road in front of the warehouse I worked at in the Midwest be rebuilt. They placed the manholes so the manhole covers were not in the wheel tracks. They were either between or could be straddled when driving. Made for a much smoother road. I have yet to see that in Washington.
Another aggravation is freeway entrances nationwide. It seems they seldom let you know soon enough which lane you need to be in to enter the freeway in the direction you want to go. At strange entrances if you want to turn left, you don't know if it is a ramp and you should be in the left lane, or it is a clover-leaf and you should be in the right lane. Grrrr.
