The NYC metro area (including NJ) is another. Drivers there are fairly aggressive, but on the other hand, they are able to function in a driving environment that's basically unlike any other outside of London or an active warzone.
Whats really funny/sad to me is how nobody really seems to have a problem with dangerous elderly drivers. They are a huge voting block and thats probably the reason this is so. Where 17 year old kids who have accidents or speed are the anti-christ itself apperantly.
Whats funny to me is PHX. You have a fairy Cali type of driver for the most part, but then for about 6 months of the year you have the blue hairs out there. The swings can be quite impressive. I am still amazed I did not get in an accident while I lived there.
I would **** and moan about Cali drivers, but honestly I moved back to CO (I hope I never have to leave again) 2 years ago and the drivers are from another planet compared to when I left. People here have no bals and are imcapable of using a turn signal anymore. I pretty regularly will encounter a situation as follows:
I am doing 75 in a 75 zone in the right lane, with someone passing me on the left. Someone else is merging. Now they are going about 75 already, maybe a bit faster as they are merging. They are about 1 car length ahead of me.
What do I do? I slow down a bit to give them some room since I can't go left.
What do they do? Freak the eff out and hit the brakes. Because if you cut in front of someone doing 65 instead of 75 its much safer right?
Its like the people who cut you off, but only half way, while hitting the brakes. Just effing do it! If your going to be a *****, at least be competent about it. When I am being an *** and cut someone off, I floor the bitch.
WTF happened to my state? I leave for a few years and this is what happens. ****.
Now I feel sad and angry.
