That's true. Go to Eastern Europe to see how people drive there. Everyone drives over the speed limit doesn't obey traffic laws doesn't stop for pedestrians

LA sucked because you had to drive so far to go around town and the freeways were always at a standstill.

DC though....that was AWFUL. I've driven around DC maybe 10 times, and it's always been a disaster.

Why no mention of Salt Lake City? The drivers are psychos here. Last week, I was in the Downtown area and I saw a car going the wrong way down a one way street with cars coming from the other side.
