You're describing Manchester, London, Barcelona and Belfast as well as most mornings anywhere that has roads.


Look on the bright side...you don't live in India or China. They must kiss their loved ones every time they pick up the keys to leave. Then again, meal times are never boring.

"Saw a bus hit a scooter today that dodged a chicken crossing the road..."

"No honey, I've no idea why the chicken was crossing the road..."

Ha! I used to be that guy! Born and raised in the car and "ME" culture of Los Angeles.... I lived there until I was 30 years old. Spent the next 30 years in the beautiful mid-western plains states, where people actually are kind, courteous, caring and friendly! It changes you. Yes... it's got it drawbacks. I once spent over 5 minutes at a 4-way stop sign because everyone was waving the other to go ahead
Now when I merge on the freeway... I still flip my hand at the the other drivers, but not with the finger... with a knowing wave of thanks. Sometimes we even give the other guy a bump on the horn.... meaning "no problem... glad to have ya"! I love LA for so many reasons... still do. But driving there is not one of them.

You nailed it OP.... thanks for the post!

2 mentions of Chicago huh. Well I'll take your word for it, but I've never been east of the Mississippi.



Please go drive in Chicago then amend your post - by far the worst place I've ever driven (outside of Tijuana). Being born and raised SoCal scum that says a lot. In our defense we only drive that way because we all moonlight as Hollywood stunt drivers

Thanks, I'll be sure to add that to my list. License plate fraudsters.

Congratulations on getting my 2018 most ignorant person award.

Sorry you’re upset about California but we are mostly great drivers.

You take me as the guy who is going 65 in the left lane butthurt at the world as people are honking at you to move the eff over because normal people go 80.

If we are such bad drivers then why are we 37th in the us for deadly car crashes per 100k people?

Ignorant...ignorant...ignorant.

Hmm, Kansas City is usually pretty good ... unless moisture falls from the sky in any form under any temperature, and then all bets are off! It's like no one has a clue what lane to drive in and at what speed they should be going anymore.

You also have a lot of people who simply can't be bothered to read that lane A or lane B will be closed ahead, so they ride in it up until the last possible second and then butt in creating a traffic jam.

My biggest beef with people like Californians is that they tend to be "foreigners" in the sense that they don't understand the flow and disrupt it, making the drive harder on everyone else.

Take a spin through Austin and take note of how much rubber is burned up the off-ramp barriers.
Drunk college kids I suppose.
I got pulled over once, airing out the engine at 3 in the morning.
The deputy yells at me..."Do you know how fast you were going!?"
I tell him "No, the speedometer only goes to 120."
He couldn't help cracking up laughing.
Somehow I managed to not get a ticket or a night in the hoosegow on that one.
I was clocked at 128 in a 55.
"Have you been drinking?"
"Yeah."
I was escorted home and told to go to bed.
Not all cops are dicks.

Ignorant...ignorant...ignorant.


I see, so you are accepting this award on behalf of the whole state, how gracious of you! Wise to snatch it up before anyone else grabbed 'your (I can tell this is a personal honor for you) 2018 most ignorant person award.'



May ignorance and lack of empathy never leave this great Golden state...really, please keep it within those borders there!

I'm pretty sure that behavior is intentional. "Ooh! If I can just get ahead of 3 more cars nugh!"

Aren’t you just sooo cool?

Please stay out of the left lane. It’s meant for passing.

I don't drive left lane. In fact, every lane is gummed up so what difference does it make! Just be sure to weave around in lanes that aren't moving. It'll show everyone how important you are and how much quicker you need to go!

And then you wonder why you hydroplaned into a ditch.

Some of it is, yeah, but there are also not a few who don't read English for various reasons from simple illiteracy to not being English speakers here.

The last time I was in LA the speed limit was just a suggestion.

I've posted many times on ATS where I live, and how often I visit CA (not by choice, I assure you.)

You also forget that California is so bloated that 'Californians' are constantly blorking out into other states quick as they can. They're everywhere.







Another falsehood, Cali has more transplants than probably any other state in the U.S. I have traveled my entire life, and LA is FAR from the worst place to live. In fact Cali has 4 of the TOP 10 places to live in the U.S.


I think the problem is with you not Us. Again I live here and have for 10 years. Love it!


Other than driving here, how much actual time have you spent enjoying all the great things this state has to offer????

Yeah, I know... its the police chase capital of the world, isn't it?

Whenever you see a police chase on tv, where the guys pulling off some incredibly skilled manoeuvres at extremely high speeds, while the engines totally smokin and his car has 2 punctured tyres ... Then you just know... it must be in California.
