Right Turn Clyde

It has been awhile since I did any sort of crazy rant. Most of my rantings have been about driving and this one isn't any different. Why do people suck at driving? This is the question I pose at you.

Is it because I live in New York and there are more assholish drivers here? Why do people feel the need to ride my ass on some back road where the speed limit is 30 and I'm going 35? Nobody has any patience anymore. Where is every one headed in such a god damn hurry?

And for Pete's sake people, learn how to use a friggin' turn signal. Is it really that hard to flip a bar up or down? Is humanity this lazy or was nobody properly taught how to operate a motor vehicle with respect to others? If you are making a left turn, signaling 1.3 seconds before you do it is not enough time.

I wrote this in another post but there should be a law that requires you to retake your driver's test every 5-10 years or so to cut down on the amount of assholes out there.

It is getting to become a rarity that I come across courteous drivers. People are getting more and more selfish and inconsiderate of every one else. Did we not learn the Golden Rule in elementary school? This rule applies to every aspect of our lives.

Is this just me or does every state have this many dumbass drivers? Speak to me my fellow bloggers (I find it funny that Blogger underlines 'bloggers' as not being a word).

You want to see insane driving? Drive in the south when it's snowing. People don't know how to deal with it.

I have said it before I will say it again. People have way too much sense of entitlement and they feel as if they own the road.

Oh and traffic is pretty damn bad in California. And when it rains, traffic almost stops. I was joking with a friend tonight at work that god forbid if it were to ever snow in Southern California, people wouldn't know how to handle the idea of driving with a little bit of snow on the ground.


The one time I was in NYC, the drivers were horrible.... But what amazed me was the bike riders.... They weave in and out of traffic!
