OK, so why is it, ever since I came back from Korea last year, I’ve noticed a disturbing lack of driver manners in this country? I’ve driven in half the states from Ohio to California, and I’m getting really steamed at the dearth of CLUES in drivers’ minds in the States. It seems that turn signals are completely optional today, and the drivers in L.A., once aggressively laid back, are now just as uptight as those psychos in Boston.
I realize that your destination is emminently important to you, but try to understand that we all have places to get to, and yours is no more crucial to the existence of the universe than anyone else’s. If you really needed to get there earlier, you damn sure could have left your house earlier!
Basically, it seems the same rule has come into effect on American roads as the Koreans have been using for years: "I have the right of way." No matter who you are, be it jaywalking pedestrian, suicidal bicyclist, or psychotic trucker, you have the right of way. So, enjoy, and try not to kill too many other motorists.
