Miami still has the rudest drivers in the nation, which is probably not the least bit surprising to anyone whose ever driven in Miami. :balloons

This is because we have the slowest drivers in the world--tourists and old people. On my way to school every morning, it's a miracle if I reach the speed limit, and it has nothing to do with heavy traffic. It's because every day all three lanes across the McArthur are taken up by 3 cars who not only like driving 10 mph below, but they all like driving right next to each other so that no one can get by. It's uncanny.

Furthermore, pretty much wherever I drive around here, I'm one of the fastest drivers on the road...I'm not one of those crazy a**holes who drive like 110 or anything, but I'm doing 75-80 mph down I-95...which qualifies as fast here. But when I went out to CA, driving East from Los Angeles, I couldn't keep up. I was going like 85 and everyone was flying by me. Must be a cultural thing.

90% of the drivers I come across are going well over the speed limit, though I guess Broward is different from downtown Miami.

Exactly. And the other problem is people going REALLY fast. So you have really slow drivers and really fast drivers - which messes it up for everyone else.

If everyone drove about 5 mph over the speed limit the traffic here wouldn't be bad at all.

And the other problem is that people will just not let you in to their lane if they can stop you, will cut you off, etc.

Basically: there are a lot of bad drivers down here.

Yeah, Broward is undoubtedly different. When I was doing the high school thing, my commute was between Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale, and it was more or less as you describe, unless there was heavy traffic. Miami is a different animal.

Driving here in Miami sure is crazy. Here, people don't believe in using the turning signals. I guess Miami is the only place where green means stop and red means go.

In March, I was on my way to FIU. I am driving on my lane when some idiotic lady decides it's a good idea to merge onto my lane, even though she's about to hit me. I honk like hell, and for what? She hit me anyways. Then she blames ME! I wrote all about it in a blog here: http://www.marlinbaseball.com/forums/index...;showentry=1797

Heh... and just last night, I am going 80 on the Palmetto and some guy tailgates me.

I have even seen cops do crazy things on the road. How do people expect others to drive safer when not even some of our own police officers can't obey simple traffic laws?

road rage is kept in check here by shooting anyone who dares question your driving

In Miami I don't use turn signals anymore because the moment I do someone speeds up in the lane I want to switch to.

A miami drivers idea of "stopping" at a four way:

Notice how the red car goes as far across the line as possible, giving just enough room for the blue car to make a 90 degree turn.
