Ive never been to New York, but I have been to Chicago. I got to say that it seemed like there were a lot of similarities between GTA drivers and Chicago drivers (particulary the cabs). I saw them ignore stop signs, traffic lights, lanes, other cars. I don't imagine new york to be much better.
I really thought us Californians were bad drivers, we just go really fast.
Maybe YOU, but I got my license in San Francisco.
There is much more to pay attention to in the city.
Not everyone drives really fast, in the big city you can't.
Here it is well known to stay out from behind taxis, busses,
and old ladies - they are the worst and definitely most dangerous
California suburbs might be fast but SF, San Jo, LA, and the 619 are not.
I can tell a mile away if it is a native SF person driving, or *someone else*.
Native San Francisco drivers are just more aware. City, hill driving, everything.
LA is more like Liberty City, 5 go on a yellow and 3 on a red.
No one uses turn signals, unless in a 4-way intersection for a left turn
in the last minute, or on the freeway for no reason. (Foreigner)
The 405 is so fucked that the commuters who use side streets,
well that is were the pigs put up the speed traps for the "California Speed Control".
At least we have online traffic school
to get out of the once-in-5-years ticket.
