    You're right about that. Minnesota drivers may be nice, but they can't drive worth a shit. With the exception of a few here and there, including me. :lol:

    Minnesota and Wisconsin drivers are both pretty friendly.. Now I grew up in Fla, and those drivers are something else..

    AMEN TO THAT !!!!

    Surprised Miami got it, Tampa is the ULTIMATE WORST !!!!!

    Most rude and the worst drivers ... Shoot, when I go back to MN and actually get to use the cruise control, it's like HEAVEN !!!

    This happens when you mix no state tax = limited expressways, no sane lanes, with rednecks, lots of senior citizens, north easterners, and midwest people all in the same town with bad roads, limited lights, and legalized turnabouts .... Just a mess down here !!!

    Absolutely! When I moved from Portland to Minneapolis 12 years ago, my uncle, who's a long haul truck driver, told me he'd rather drive his truck through downtown Manhatten than on the freeways of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I love the Twin Cities, but the drivers suck (of course, the drivers in Rapid City, where I now live, aren't great either, but they all drive too slow to do any real damage :wink: ) .

    Having now driven in the Twin Cities metro for the past six months, I have formed the following opinions about TC/Minnesota drivers:

    1. They run more "just red" lights than anywhere else I've *EVER* been.

    2. They've got NO FRIGGIN' CLUE about how to merge onto highways.

    3. They are rather friendly about letting you in, if you use your blinker.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    LOL. Having grown up in the Twin Cities, and then spent time in almost every region in the US (not to mentio nthe world), I have to agree with all three.

    Just red is still kinda close to green...

    That's funny as here in Tampa, red lights don't exist. They are mearly another "decoration" on the road ... there are soo many accidents daily from red lights it's rediculous down here.

    I have been saying, that if they installed the electronic monitoring systems for running a red light down here at the intersections this city would be rich and could fix all the pot holes.

    You know it's bad when the President of the United States visits last year, drives up Kennedy Blvd. (big stretch near downtown) and makes 5 minutes worth of comments about the pot holes in his address that evening to local leaders. :roll:


    Not to mention, to date, nothing has been done about them.

    I hate drivers in New Mexico. They all run red lights, they cut you off if not try and sideswipe you, they don't use there blinkers EVER, and the people that are turning will sit in the middle of the road playing chicken with oncoming traffic.

    Thanks Josdin

    Harrisonburg, VA needs to be on the list.

    Green light meens: just sit here awhile it will be green again

    when they turn in somewhere, they act like they are driving a tractor and trailor instead of a little car.

    When you have your hazzard lights on for an emeregency it means pull out in front of the emergency and slow down
