Also because of all the congestion all the time, a lot more drivers are defensive drivers rather than aggressive who try to weave in and out and cut every car they can.
Hey Donald. I would think you'd have a driver lol.

I blame the freeway systems out here though too...they're not very efficient...and can be confusing to new people. I also find it odd that I can ask directions from someone who has lived here all their life and THEY have a hard time.
Same here.. driven in California for a decade and a half and while it's no picnic, the drivers there are relatively civilized compared to the big cities in Texas like DFW and Austin. Californians seem to drive just as fast and tailgate just as much but at least they're far more respectful of the other driving laws like slower cars to the right, lane markings, not running red lights, etc. Less people seem to get pulled over here compared to the Bay Area and Southern California.

One thing though, once you leave the big cities, the drivers seem a lot more relaxed, while in California, it seems it's the same pace whether you're in a big city or out in the boonies.
