I officially know how to drive

Raise your hand if you know what this sign means:


People that live around me evidently don't; they all wait for the green arrow to turn. They'll happily sit there and let the light go red. I don't understand it! AND!!! AND!!! People will give ME the funny "what-the-hell-are-you-doing?" look when I proceed to turn!!!!!!!

Sorry. Just had to rant there for a bit.

I hear ya because in my neck of the woods, people look at me funny when I make turn signals.
Then again, I'm from the era where "it's better to be safe than sorry" was heavily preached.

Oh don't get me started on stupid drivers! I silently kill them all off as I drive. Ha! If that were true in real life ther would be very few cars on the roads, the way it SHOULD be!

Drive smart.
Drive Defensively.

Driving over here in Canada is taking a bit of getting used to - primarily the you can turn right on a red light thing, aswell as flashing green lights and pedestrians who really have no idea what to do when the little man turns red.

Oh, and driving on the other side of the road in comparison to the UK and Ireland. Interesting few moments last weekend

My loved ones have told me that I'm not allowed to complain about bad drivers.

Driving in Alabama is like driving in the Indy 500. Honestly, we might as well not have speed limits.

Driving in LA is either a parking lot type slow moving crawl or an Indy 500, one extreme or the other.
