A long day of school + stupid drivers = roar!

Dear LA Drivers,

If you don't know how to drive, get off the road! If you see emergency vehicles barreling down the street with their sirens going for the love of cupcakes get out of their way! If you are already in the intersection, finish your business so you aren't blocking their path! If you want to make a left turn but you are still at the light, stay there! Do not go in the intersection! You are blocking their path to helping people and it takes a lot longer for a large vehicle like a fire truck to stop when it slams on it's brakes! Do not honk at me for yielding to them! Do not honk at me for not doing a rolling stop at a stop sign! I stop for at least 3 seconds before proceeding! If you don't like it tough! Do not honk at me for stopping for pedestrians! Do not flip me off for not getting into the "KEEP CLEAR" area! You know, those areas of a street that's part of any form of intersection so cars can pass through or make turns. It says "KEEP CLEAR" for a reason! If the light is green but the road up ahead is blocked, don't honk at me for staying at the light! I'm not going to go into the intersection and block through traffic! It might not say "KEEP CLEAR" but it's common knowledge that you keep the freaking intersection clear if you can't proceed! Don't you dare honk at me and yell at me if you nearly hit me! You had a stop sign, I did not! You didn't bother to pay attention because you were putting on your lipstick and you nearly plowed right into the driver's side of my car! It's not my fault you're a crap driver!

Love,
A Pissed Off Driver

PS-I love you drivers that obey the laws. Seriously, you guys rock.



Time to start homework.

Wow. They sound pretty awful. You can get a HUGE fine for not yielding to the emergency vehicles here.

Sorry LA traffic sucks so bad. I don't think drivers are particularly impatient here, but then we have cameras everywhere...

You get fined here too, of course a cop has to catch you...

Yeah, we have cameras all over the place. It usually isn't that bad on a given day, today was just a bad day for drivers it seems. A bunch of teenagers got in a bad accident on the Pacific Coast Highway (drinking) and there was a huge car fire on a very busy freeway, it was basically just a blackened shell. Scary stuff.

That's interesting, I thought it was nationwide that you don't have to yield to them and they also aren't allowed to hit you or other parked vehicles and get away with it anymore. I guess that's only PA then?

Haha, I think the majority of good LA drivers are
a. People that moved from outside LA or
b. People like me that are native to LA but grew up with the asshattery and decided to not get bit by the Bad Driver bug.

That's one thing I don't miss about Southern California, drivers who are stupid....it's so much nicer up here, and it's surprising since we have all the bridges. People always drive like morons over bridges. It seems the "Keep Clear" areas are difficult to understand...:P I don't know how you can get much more simple...:P

I can't believe people who don't give way to emergency vehicles. As if where you are going could possibly be more important! Fortunately Canberra drivers are mostly a pretty reasonable bunch, the problem with most people here is that they will try to give way to an emergency vehicle to the point of breaking the law, like pulling through a red light to try and let one through the queue.
