if you never drove and dont know how to drive
just get your license in Illinois it will be easy
they will say turn the car on
ok
heres your license
LOL..My Wisconsin relatives would agree.

It's amazing to drive from the Illinois border into Wisconsin. Driving becomes more sane again.

But to their credit, once they pass you, they are long gone. Some of those pesky Wisconsin drivers will drive in your blind spot or will take forever to pass on the interstate.

Zipping across five lanes of traffic going 90 mph is considered a normal driving manuever here. When you are about to change lanes, the person in the other lane a little ways behind you tries to speed up so that you can't "cut" in front of them. If you are an advocate of the whole "slow down in inclement weather" belief, then this is the wrong place for you. When you are driving down the Interstate or Airline Highway and it is raining so hard that it looks like Niagara Falls is hitting your car and visiblility is like 2 inches, people here think it means "Okay, I'd better speed up some and weave around like a maniac"
