Some of the videos or clips aren't even worth putting up but some are pretty bad especially at the end

Guy seems like a jerk. A lot of his complaints are dumb.

Then there's the part where he gets mad because a pedestrian is avoiding a snow-covered sidewalk. That right there crowned him as a super-asshat.

Since I purchased my house in Covington I've been able to drive in the Cincy area during the morning rush hour on weekdays as well as off peak traffic hours on weekends. In no way shape or form is driving in your area as bad as in Kansas City. Just two days ago I had two more near accidents where one guy deliberately tried to run me off the road for some reason, and then some woman in a minivan simply chose not to see me as I was driving past her while she was at a stop sign and failed to yield right of way to me. Nearly plowed into me. Then yesterday some guy in a pick up nearly rear ended me after I had pulled out onto a state road after I looked both ways twice before entering the road. Didn't even see him. Since I was already doing 40 mph in a 45 when he got on my tail I presume he was probably doing in excess of 20 mph over the speed limit in that zone.

I saw perhaps three incidents on this video that I'd deem as truly serious issues. And I can easily experience these same problems in a matter of minutes to an hour on any given day in the KC area. As far as I am concerned, driving in Cincy is a much better experience than Kansas City.

Honestly i seen much worse stuff in cincinnati then what the guy saw on the video. Heck i saw a weaver who hardly got pass two cars blocking his way. Today i also saw a man who drove on the grass at the kenwood exit just to get back on the freeway. Kansas city is nothing close to what you see in large cities.

I've driven in roughly 40 states and most provinces in Canada. KC is among the WORST cities for drivers that I've personally experienced. Only Boston is worse but that is due to the sheer volume of cars and large tie ups that make navigating the roads a challenge. But as far as sheer stupidity on the road, KC is the worst I've seen. I'd rather drive in NYC. At least people there seem to know how to control their vehicles.

You say you have experienced it. That should be enough to satisfy us. But I suspect others will state but you have ignored this city, this city, and that one. Some people just have to top others before they will believe you have experienced actual horror stories. But if you know you have, just stick with it.

I have not driven in LA. I am certain that is worse than KC. The only states I have not driven in are California, Montana, South Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama and Louisiana. I've driven in Chicago, Atlanta and certainly NYC. KC is the only place where I find myself nearly constantly aggravated or angry because of the sheer stupidity and carelessness I've not only witnessed first hand but also experienced. Last year I had two, yes two cars totaled because these idiots in KC don't pay attention or yield right away to traffic that has the right of way. I drove extensively in Connecticut during my first 27 years there and several years following after stops in other states and I never so much as had one car totaled in any CT city, Boston, NYC, DC etc.

I've driven in Cincy quite a bit over the last 13 to 14 years and I just have not seen as many imbecilic drivers there that I've seen in KC. Sorry I won't agree with you or anyone on this one. Cincy is far from perfect on the road but it is nowhere as bad as other similar sized metro areas where I've driven.
