Gotta remember that Pittsburgh was laid out well before the automobile came into play. With the arrival of all this traffic, cars, trucks, busses and everything else, it's a wonder there isn't much more of an issue with agressive driving.

Most PAT drivers aren't wreckless and are just agressive enough to try and stay on schedule. We all have to share the same road after all. I think for the most part they do a pretty darn good job.

My Pet Peve stems from all those cars in rush-hour typically populated by only a driver. Now I realize that some just can't utilize Public Transportation but so many of them could, and should. I never saw empty busses, just empty cars. And if enough folks did utilize PT maybe it would free up the road for the rest of the rat race. Less conjestion and less stress.

A little courtesy for the Bus Drivers could go a long way. Folks should anticipate the need for a Bus to merge back into traffic. If everyone kept that mind-set things would flow a lot more freely. What's your hurry anyways?
