I'm currently living in Chicago for an internship, and I must say; I don't think I've ever been so upset by the terrible drivers and poor roads there are here. I thought Ohio drivers we're the bottom of the barrel; I was wrong.
-Nobody in the city of Chicago knows what a turn signal is. Nobody.
-There's more potholes in the roads than there are people. Exaggerated much? I think not. Drive through downtown and see what I mean.
-Nobody knows how to operate a 4-way stop. It's like a madhouse anytime I approach one of these.
-The speed limit is only 45 or 55 MPH on the highways, and it sucks.
-I also hate tolls, mostly because I probably look like the biggest idiot trying to scrounge up $.15.
-There's more cops out on the roads late at night than I have ever seen. I can't drive home without seeing five of them trying to get your for speeding.
-On top of that, they never have their lights in. In Ohio, it must be a law or something for cops to always keep their headlights on when pulled off to the side because they're always on. I feel like this is a hazard to the cops. What if someone has a car emergency and needs to pull to the side of the road? O WAIT, there's a cop car there lol. I think this is just an accident/lawsuit waiting to happen.
-The teens here simply don't know how to drive. I almost got into an accident because some teenage idiot tried to merge into my lane but failed miserably. I almost got read-ended yesterday on the highway from some girl chatting to her other girlfriend about how hot Tony is and how much of a dick Carl is on the phone. She wasn't paying attention whatsoever, and it got to the point where I was going in my head the different ways I could react not if, but when I was going to get rear-ended by this idiot.
After living in Chicago, never again will I complain about the idiots in Ohio who freak out over two snowflakes on the road. I'd take the mass transit but 1) there isn't a stop anywhere near me, and 2) there's been two train accidents within the last week; one train derailed and another hit a guy. I can't have that kind of blood on my hands!
Sometimes it's hard being the best driver on the road....
