Well some nh residents are into shooting and killing motorists in road rage events.
Granted the guy was a Lawrence resident who moved just over the border.
This of course happened in Lynn.
Since then I toned down my attitude slightly... Well ok, maybe not
Use your blinkah and get the frack out of the way you stupid hippie! Beep beep.

You'll be fine. I drove into Boston last night with the wife and only had to use my horn 5 or 6 times.

^ To go with that, I had the "pleasure" of driving in Boston on Thursday during commuting hours and was only almost driven off the road 3x.

Keep these things in mind:

never use your blinker - you don't want to telegraph your intent
never look motorist or pedestrian in the eye - it's a sign of weakness
if it's paved, it's fair game.

Must have been a slow night




I was leaving a parking garage im the theater disctrict and rolled out to see that someone parked their huge SUV across the exit ramp of the garage. They parked there to run into a store for 5 mins leaving a HUGE line of cars beeping and honking and unable to leave the garage. Guy came back to his car with a bag of stuff, and then casually took his time getting in the truck and leaving. It was amazing.

Very weird, I've driven in Boston and the area for decades and that has never once happened to me.

Well, after driving in Dallas and Houston for many years, I found that I had to make a special effort to be LESS aggressive in my driving as I was freaking people out.

I take it you've never driven Storrow Drive. People seem to have an inability there to stay in their lanes. When it was part of my regular commute, a day wouldn't go by where I wouldn't be on my horn. It's not usually deliberate, just stupid not paying attention stuff...

Same with Alewife Brook Parkway towards Rt. 2 from Cambridge. How hard is it to stay between the lines? Happens all the time.
