IT's officially something only Abel will understand....*no one else better read it*

Things to Know about Driving in DALLAS!!!

First you must learn to pronounce the city name. It is DAL-LUS, or DAA-LIS
depending on if you live inside or outside LBJ Freeway.

Next, if your Maspco is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and buy a
new one.

If in Denton County and your Mapsco is one day old, then it is already
obsolete.

Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Dallas has its own version
of traffic rules..."Hold on and pray".

There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Dallas. We all
drive like that.

All directions start with, "Get on Beltline"... which has no beginning and
no end. (It REALLY DOESN'T!!!)

The morning rush hour is from 6 to 10. The evening rush hour is from 3 to 7.
Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning.

If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended, cussed out
and possibly shot.

When you are the first one on the starting line, count to five when the
light turns green before going to avoid crashing with all the drivers
running the red light in cross-traffic.

Construction on Central Expressway is a way of life and a permanent form of
entertainment. We had sooo much fun with that we have added George Bush
Freeway and the High Five to the mix.

All unexplained sights are explained by the phrase, "Oh, we're in Fort
Worth!"

If someone actually has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory
defect. Car horns are actually "Road Rage" indicators, and remember, its
legal to be armed in Texas.

All old ladies with blue hair in Mercedes have the right of way. Period.
(and remember, its legal to be armed in Texas)

Inwood Road, Plano Road, NW Highway, East Grand, Garland Road, Marsh Lane,
Josey Lane, 15th Street, Preston Road... all mysteriously change names as
you cross intersections (these are only a FEW examples). The perfect example
is what is MOSTLY known as Plano Road. On the south end it is known as Lake
Highlands Drive, cross Northwest Highway and it becomes Plano Road, go about
8 miles and it is briefly Greenville Ave, Ave K, and Highway 5.. It ends in
Sherman.

If you stop to ask directions on Gaston or Live Oak, you better be armed
(and remember, its legal to be armed in Texas).

A trip across town (east to west) will take a minimum of four hours,
although many north/south freeways have unposted minimum speeds of 75. The
minimum acceptable speed on the Dallas North Toll Road is 85. Anything less
is considered downright sissy.

The wrought iron on windows near Oak Cliff and Fair Park is not ornamental!!

It is possible to be driving WEST in the NORTH-bound lane of EAST NORTHWEST
Highway. Don't let this confuse you.

The North Dallas Tollway is our daily version of NASCAR. It also ends in
Sherman. LBJ is called "The Death Trap" for two reasons: "death" and "trap."

If it's 100 degrees, Thanksgiving must be next weekend. If it's 10 degrees
and sleeting/snowing, the Fort Worth Stock Show is going on. If it's rained
6 inches in the last hour, the Byron Nelson Golf Classic is in the second
round (if it's Spring) - and it is the Texas State Fair if it's Fall.

If you go to the Fair, pay the $5.00 to park INSIDE Fair Park. Parking
elsewhere could cost up to $2500 for damages, towing fees, parking tickets,
etc. If some guy with a flag tries to get you to park in his yard, run over
him.

Any amusement parks, stadiums, arenas, race tracks, airports, etc. are
conveniently located as far away from EVERYTHING as possible so as to allow
for ample parking on grassy areas.

Final Warning: Don't Mess With Texas Drivers, remember, its legal to be
armed in Texas.

I used to go to Dallas every weekend. That brings back a lot of fun memories.

I don't think I could handle it now.
