LOS ANGELES, March 8 (UPI) -- The executive producer of the upcoming U.S. cable TV show "America's Worst Driver" said he found bad motorists in eight major cities to be "equally pathetic."

Charlie Parsons, executive producer of the Travel Channel series, said each episode features four drivers from the city of the week, including Chicago, New York and Dallas, competing in a number of controlled situations to see who has the most bad habits behind the wheel, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday.

Ooooh man, I have two for them.

One is now a mom of twins, so maybe she's gotten more reserved ... but before she got preggo, she would speed +15 mph over everyone else, cut people off, use the HOV lane while alone in her car to get past people, talk on the cellphone, drinking a soda, playing with onboard nav. I went to Whistler mountain, north of Vancouver, BC, with her once and NEVER AGAIN! I was scared most of the time.

The other is this woman I knew in St. Louis. She had this weird habit of driving AS FAR TO THE RIGHT IN THE LANE AS POSSIBLE. I swear, she would miss traffic and obstacles on the right by inches going over 45 mph. Drivers in other lanes would get scared and move over because of her. I think it was because she was one of those paranoid drivers and since she was paranoid she would be more scared of oncoming traffic, and thus decrease the chances of hitting her. Heaven forbid she ever get a wide car because she'd straddle lanes.
