So true. People push their way through a light when there's no room and block the entire intersection. It's infuriating.

People also get offended here if you pass them. Very petty. I pass people and they speed up and flip me off just because they somehow feel insulted. Grow up people.

That is petty. Have you ever been behind someone who has a green arrow or light and they are a little slow to move so you give them the horn and they press their horn in retaliation (and start creeping along). That's petty and self centered.

They also don't whip from lane to lane at high speeds almost clipping people on the freeways. I would much rather drive on their freeways than here, people know CHP doesn't play.
