They're all from California.

People drive like shit in many places. Perhaps licenses should not be given out to those who cannot properly operate a vehicle or are unfamiliar with traffic rules and regulations

After reading that ponderous block of text I am truly interested in killing myself.

I notice this too and I hate myself for it. Louis CK has a good bit about how when he's behind the wheel he has a different set of values that he'd never replicate outside of the car. Ever since I started driving again I don't feel safe riding my bike anymore, I see way too much on the roads that disturbs me.

I also just read Portland has the 8th worst traffic in the US and the 14th worst in the world. 14th worst traffic in the *WORLD* --- certainly that isn't helping to tame driver aggression here.

Tiresome comment about how you should be riding a bike instead.

An annual study of traffic flow worldwide ranked Portland as the 8th worst city in the U.S. for congestion on arterial roads and highways.

The TomTom Traffic Index tracked time delays for drivers, peak traffic hours and congestion levels in 53 metropolitan areas with populations over 800,000.

The research found that Portland drivers were most likely to get caught in backups during the morning commute on Thursdays and Fridays.

It also found that the worst nights for evening rush hour gridlock were Mondays and Thursdays.

Los Angeles was ranked as the most congested city in the U.S. Seattle was 4th worst in the U.S. and 7th in the world. Portland was ranked as 13th worst in the world and Rio DeJaneiro was number 1.

Dude is talking about dead people here.

Go to New York and realize how lucky you are to live in Portland, dipshit. Portland drivers are a dream compared to the rest of the nation.
