People here in TX are just oblivious and dumb. My roadrage runs rampant, with all of the stupidity on the road.

I will agree with you on this one. Once you cross over into RI from MA, it's quite different... and scary lol

My hometown in Michigan (west bloomfield for any of the 'ganders here) has the worst drivers on the planet, no question: hot jewish trophy wives/moms. They spend their entire driving experience talking on the phone, eating absurdly expensive food from plum market, and painting their fingernails in their mercedes SUV. Here in Boulder I have really been impressed with the drivers overall and everyone is very courteous.

Here in Aiken SC we really have no traffic jams, but try making a left turn anywhere. All the bluehairs drive their Buick Lucernes 10 under and five car lengths apart. It's like trying to cut into Macy's parade anywhere you go

Nope -- gotta call tomorrow and check on my baby -- see if the exhaust has made an appearance...it's on the way so....just gotta get there....

All I am going to say is that Ohio drivers in Michigan constantly use the left lane, travel with flow of traffic and even 5 miles below the posted speed limit of 70 mph even if center lane is clear or there is room to move over. When I drive the Ohio turnpike, absolutely minimal issues with passing on left and immediately retaking center lane. Just because Ohio limit is 65, kick it up a notch or get out of the way.

Do Ohio drivers instructors teach this?

And this comment is compiled from driving in this state for 24 years.

And another thing...If you're in the left lane doing 5 under speed limit while on your phone, texting, talking or blabbering with 4 other people in your car, eating and screaming at your kids, get the hell over.

Driving is driving....don't jeopardize others and their cars because your'e too preoccupied to handle 2 tons of metal effectively.

I am not originally from Ohio, but I bet they do that so you can get a good look at their OSU Buckeye bumper sticker and such. The whole time, knowing we are aggravating the good people from Michigan...

Had an old man, looked like he was 90, 2 car lengths into the intersection yesterday starring at the light waiting for it to turn green as intersecting traffic was honking and trying to get over so they could get around him...3 lane road instantly turned into a 2 lane intersection...and he didn't look even half way concerned...Yes, Arizona is loaded with old people...I love the "winter" here.

Friday on my way home I was passing in the fast lane and I come up on a pick-up truck in the intersection median. The pick-up was crossing all 4 lanes and after crossing over two lanes he was waiting for a break in the other traffic to continue across to the other side.

Only problem is when I drove past the back of his truck I realized that I just drove under a cane pole (fishing pole) hanging 15 feet out the back of his truck. If I would had been in a pick-up it would had took out my windshield! It was literally invisible till the last second!!

Originally from Atlanta and I will NEVER complain about the drivers there after moving to South Carolina.

-Blinkers do not come in cars sold in South Carolina apparently.

-On a 2 lane the slowest person is always in the left lane and you can never pass. ( as a previous poster said it is usually a Buick, if I see a Buick coming up I already know I will be late getting to my destination)

-You let someone out in traffic and they never wave or even acknowledge you did them a favor.

By the time I get to wherever I am going, I need blood pressure meds. I just hate people don't think about other drivers and be courteous.

While stationed outside of Boston, MA, I asked a state trooper who had the right of way in a traffic circle( lots of traffic circles in Mass). Answer: determined by point of impact, the car in the lead has right of way.

I'm from NY so you know it's a race to get everywhere. Riced out civics have to floor it 37 yards to the next light otherwise they just wouldn't be cool.... stop signs mean, hope someone else stops. cell phones are a must. texting is for the better drivers. fender benders are a neccessity as well, if there has not been one, someone will cause one in traffic. try the belt parkway, you hear bumpers being slammed every 5 seconds

On top of the speed they lay on the horn to get you to move before the light even turns green.
