At first I thought it was fine- but I've changed my mind. In the past week I've seen a whole lotta craziness:
- high speed police pursuit- check.
- zooming semis almost killing me- check check.
- had some loser cut the crap off me- check check check.
- seen like 3 or 4 cars in a row run a red light (do they not see it, or is there a grace period seven seconds after the light has illuminated red? - check.
Here's the thing:
A- I can't really be like, "man, all utah drivers are total losers"- because it's only a matter of time before I'm officially one of them. (Actually, I think technically, I am one of them.)
B- about 40% of my best friends live here... and I know they're good drivers (at least most of them).
C- I'm kinda stressed out with classes starting soon and waiting for our apartment to open up, so I could kinda see myself over reacting to someone not using his blinker.
.... Hopefully I'm just a little testy right now. Sorry I was talking about using a machete in the title. Over reactor much?
(ahem) Good things about utah transportation so far:
-the trax seem pretty sweet I guess.
-bikers seem to be pretty respected (except that one guy I saw today who almost got ran over about 3 times in 20 seconds.) I'd say Boise is better for bikers than Utah, but Utah is way better for bikers than Texas.
-.... mmm, I'll think of some more later.
ps- doesn't this traffic jam look like fun?
