Yup. So much road rage and frustration. And I get it to some extent, especially when people cut in or turn into a lane and cut people off. Regardless, you'd think people should expect bad traffic when driving into one of the largest cities in NA...

And I don't think the traffic is all that bad here ... just a lot of people with low impulse and emotional control.

Tail-gaiting was the biggest annoyance for me when I was driving. Not horn blowing.

Oh yeah, let's not forget we are the city known for booing Santa Claus. That isn't exactly going to garner us brownie points.

Compared to NYC/North Jersey, L.A. etc it isn't that bad. It seems people are at their worst coming home from work. I think many must hate their jobs, and just CAN'T WAIT to get home. Some of them drive, and act like maniacs. Life is too short to get upset on the road.

I'm much calmer now that I'm middle-aged, I just don't give a sh*t. I put my music or talk on and just cruise, not getting too upset with the ignorant ******** out there. I let out the occasional slur and profanity when necessary, but I don't let it ruin my entire outing.
