    Freaken Drivers

    Damn I hate drivers down here. In NorCal they are just clueless, in SoCal they are clueless and self absorbed *******s.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!

    Yeah Florida had some of the craziest drivers Ive ever seen. Chicago area is no bed of roses either.

    I was following a car this morning who almost went to a complete stop to cross a 5 foot puddle. I almost ran into him/her. Then there was this other car that I was behind of in a 15 mph zone. There was a slight left on the road and she steps on her brakes! Gaaah! I hate driving.

    As I said clueless drivers. Here on top of that add they will run you over rather then slow down.

    Thats not really what I am talking about. It might look bad, but not really. No one is being run over and people actually yield. Now imagine similar situation here. No one will yield, and if you are on a bike trying to make that turn you are taking life in to your own hands. In OC people will run you over instead of slowing down.

    Same stuff, different day. Still s*cks, though.

    Stop complaining. Move to Raleigh NC and there are no bike lanes and plenty of angry pick-up drivers. California (I've lived in the OC and the Bay Area) is nirvana compared to Dallas or Raleigh.

    It's human nature to complain. As the saying goes ... "The grass is greener on the other side"
