I'd take it. Yac's pretty busy during the day and if we can get Curtis and SCR wound up and going, and whatever nom de plume Scott Priester is using this week, they can crank out 10 pages easy by 4:30.

I'll be honest, as a transplant from Houston, Pittsburgh drivers are remarkably polite and well mannered in traffic compared to Houston. Some are a bit intimidated by the yield and stop signs and some think that the middle of roads are a fine place to stop and chat but overall it's alot less stressful driving than where I came from.

As for laws, I have no idea what special laws exist. Haven't noticed any differences.

I got a lot of problems with you people.

1. Stupid U turns. I've seen people do them at rush hour on the business part of Murray.
2. Honking at me when I'm stopped because I have to be (e.g. I'm waiting for a pedestrian legally crossing the street or because the sign says No Right on Red).
3. Same as #2, but when I'm the pedestrian and the car waiting for me gets honked at.
4. The Pittsburgh Left when there is no traffic I'm the only car going the other way.
5. Back window stickers with outlined figures representing of you and your kids and your pets.
6. Driving fast through the parks, especially Schenley.
7. Not stopping for pedestrians in the crosswalk.
8. Justifying #7 by saying that sometimes pedestrians jaywalk.
9. Getting upset because I slow down when I enter the Squirrel Hill tunnel. I'm getting off at Squirrel Hill and it's a sharp corner on the ramp.
10. Honking near the hospitals, especially repeatedly and for pointless things like somebody taking a second to notice the green.

I don't get wound up much. You guys know that. Geez.

I don't think we need a thread talking about Pittsburgh driving. I find driving around here is pretty much like most places. Not very good. People aren't trained to drive well in the US. It is just the way it is. Best to just not be in a rush and get to your destination safe. Treat other drivers like they were your mother and you will be fine.
