My perspective of CA drivers

When getting directions from anybody 5 minutes down the road and make a right can be anywhere from 1.5 min to 3 hours and a left.
When given the street name it will be wrong. True I have only been in the town that you live in for the past 25 years once but when I ask if I make a right at a certain bank and you say that there is not one of those banks in your town I will be correct.

They do drive better on the cellphone as it gives them less of an opportunity to purposely cut you off.

Mirrors are only for for makeup.

Turn signals haah

And a more general:
2b. If your plates have any state other than my own, you don't know how to drive, are a danger to all, and should go home.

OK
What bothers me too is the local driving tax (speeding tickets) that we all have to pay, but only out-of-state. I know locally in many of these small communities, if you have an Oklahoma plate, you're not getting stopped....but if you have a Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, or Louisiana plate, you better watch out. I experience the same thing in places like Rice, Palmer, and Hutchens, Texas.

I know some little towns that do not discriminate. But they especially love to get one of those oil company trucks. One little town near me is notorious for 2 things: watermelon and it's highway speed trap.

Red light cameras, they are nothing but an income generating business! If you town has them, start a petition to have a referendum on them!

Hey, my town is only 1 mile long. I don't they would even have a place to put a stop light, or a red light camera!!

Same here JWills. We don't even have a stop sign on the main road.

In a town this size, red light cameras aren't needed. If you commit a traffic violation, 6 people will see you and will call you or the 1 cop in town or your mama to report you!

Yes in my town, somebody else knows what you did before you even did it! I have always said that just because we have those nosey folks who think they know everyones business.

In school, there was a town so small that they had a sign "Welcome to XXXville."

It said the same thing on both sides!

If it's not uncommon to see people riding horses down main street in your town, then you live in a small town.

My neighbor owns a rodeo stock contracting company. He has a bull that they saddle up and ride. I have seen him riding the bull down the road with his 2 kids on their horses. That's probably about as country as one can get.

Pulling people out of the ditc...

Sounds like quite the site, not one that I would care to see. Good thing you weren't taking a drink of coffee---I could just imagine it spewing all over your dash!
