So yeah, I think Maryland does have some issues with bad drivers and reckless driving. Further enforcement can help.

Arlington is looking into enforcing loud exhaust systems and ticketing people for having them on their cars.

There is also the ability to use automated ticketing systems to send tickets to drivers of loud cars.

My insurance rates where I am in Maryland are less than they'd be in rural NWPA where I'm from. Another insurance cost driver in a couple or three Maryland Counties is the number of car thefts.

Yes car theft is a problem there too. Accident rates and lack of insurance coverage is another factor.

Not in NWPA. Here in Calvert the Board of Commissioners members are nominally Republican with all but one having changed from Democrat and their policies reflect those of the Democrats of yesteryear with the loosening of restrictions controlling growth.

I live in Greenbelt and the number of poor losers circulating with cars having modified exhaust systems is overwhelming. Cops don't seem to mind illegal exhausts, since the State doesn't seem to stand behind them on this issue.I don't know what to think of a society not really able to actually control the noise made by cars?? If you can’t control that, what can you control? How hard is it to actually mandate exhaust inspection? It could be done when you take the emission test, for example. I commute every day from Greenbelt to Towson, and what I see on the Parkway and 695 is truly sad, a pure reflection of the state in which our society is, total decay. Wild imbecile individualism at its worst. I was born and raised between France and Italy, I'm used to speed. I don't mind speed when it's done in a way that is clean and organized. Driving in Germany on the right lane and being passed on the left on the Autobahn by guys driving at 150 mph doesn’t bother me a bit. What I see on our road are morons zigzagging in total disrespect of other people’s life with two tons vehicles prone to roll over. .I drive at 65 mph, speed limit is 55, I’m basically following traffic most of the time on the right lane and I seem to be too slow. I’ve had people passing me on the left, so driving at least at 75 judging by their speed, while some other idiot, who couldn’t wait for that guy to pass me on the left, decides to pass me on the right, so driving on the shoulder, even faster. Yes sir on the shoulder, that happens every day, more than once. Then I watch those two ugly retards race each other away and zagging, between cars, clearly we’re commuting but those wandering shreds of human being think they’re in a video game. I haven’t traveled by car in other parts of the country in a while, but do you have the feeling that what I see in poor Maryland is also happening everywhere, or is it just Maryland that looks like some of the worst third world countries?
"or all the country is like that?"

You need to get around more.

"Maryland very much looks like a third world country"

OK, how many 3rd world countries have you PERSONALLY visited?

Where else have you been in the state to make such comparisons?

In fact, where else have you been in the country?

Me thinks you are no where as "super" as you think you are!

I've done all what you suggested, many times. Get over it, it's the US nobody cares.

I was born and raised in France, I've been in the US since 1990, so sure, yeah, sometimes I don't write like a native, just better.
I've visited many third world countries, including most of north africa and Turkey.
In most of Europe I wouldn't be able to drive 10 meters with the exhaust systems some tards think they should mount on their stupid cars, and yes I cling to that word because I want and because I can and because it perfectly describe the low life I see around.
I lived 8 years in New England, MA and RI, 8 years in Illinois, and 3 in Virginia. What I see everyday during my commute and around my neighborhood here in Maryland is the worse I've seen in 33 years I've been in this country. I don't live near a highway but when it's a little warm, but not warm to the point I need the AC I still have to use it because I can't sleep with the windows open because of the noise morons are making with their backward commuting devices. And no, I don't live in a trashy area, as a matter of fact. Quite the contrary.

We just came back from a visit and I think I would agree with you. Boston drivers are terrible, but intentionally terrible. Maryland drivers are oblivious and terrible at operating a car or truck. Also what is with the honking?



It does not help that the roads are really poorly laid out.
