New York Drivers...

Let me tell you what...


New York drivers are TERRIBLE!!! I was on my way to work this morning and was cut off 4 or 5 times, it was too early for me to start basic mathematical skills at that point so the actual number is kind of up in the air.

I was cut off one time by an old lady who decided it would be a good idea to bolt in front of me going 20 miles slower than I was...

Its like if you give these people a car they are invincible... lets see Granny bolt in front of me with out her car... would she still have just jumped out in front of me ... probably not so why do it with a car?! I just don't understand these New Yorkers they have NO COMMON SENSE! Arg.

Another person who cut me off bolted out in front of traffic, again lets see you be so bold without your invincible vehicle, and a line of 5 of us (that had accumulated because we were already going under the speed limit at that point) had to slow down because this guy apparently could wait the whole 10 seconds to wait for us to pass. Oh and yes ... he had to go 15 under the speed limit which was 10 slower than what we were doing.

A friend of mine figured out why the drivers out here are so bad... because they are old! No offense to the elderly crowd... but when you start loosing your eye sight and depth perception that SHOULD be a good indication of "You are not capable of driving anymore!!!".

There is a larger percentage of elderly and disable individuals in this small town minded section of the world... thus the bad drivers. Maybe I will get used to it... hopefully.

As you can tell bad drivers are a HUGE pet peeve of mine... what are yours?! How do you cope with them?!

I have heard that Utah and New York are the two worst states for drivers. Sorry you have to deal with that! And I agree that some elderly drivers are plain scary! As an ophthalmologist, Kyle will have to take away a lot of people's licenses when they can't see. During one rotation an old lady came in who couldn't even read the big E on the eye chart--and she had driven herself there. Yikes!!
