      That was bad. They needed a composer to come up with that?

      It's like the audible version of that Maserati covered in broken glass.

      Yeah they suck at driving...

      I did a trip to ocean city last summer... This was not relaxing at all... people are ****ing stressed, honking, cuting every line. Everyone travel at 80 mph bumper to bumper in a 5 lines traffic jam highway cuting every line when you have 18" space in front of you, they are crazy plain crazy... They are yelling, trying to cross a street by foot is a mission. I saw so many stupid accident, so predictable in a week on the garden state...

      Honestly I wont return there for a trip and this is the main reason, Mtl is not the easiest place to drive, people are also stressed but I never saw as bad in north america, no common sense, no patience.

      I live in NJ and yea, most people here don't know how to drive. Everyone is generally inpatient in NJ for some reason, and on top of that our driving test is insanely easy. I started the car, checked my mirror, drove in a circle and parallel parked the car. That's it. On top of that, I know people who have failed this test a s**tload of times. Everyone on the roads here is in a rush to go nowhere. I get so happy when I see how drivers are in other parts of the world because they can actually drive.

      I dunno. I kind of enjoy the organized chaos that is the NJ Turnpike... as long as there aren't any PA drivers clogging up the left lane(s).

      I've lived all over the world, if there's one universal truth, it's that drivers suck everywhere.

      This includes NJ, where I currently live, but did not learn to drive.

      Funny, Jersey gets the rep for bad driving, but far worse drivers reside in South Florida and the only people who complain are other, occasionally, other South Floridians. Matter of fact, I'd go so far a to say Jersey drivers a pretty damn good. Especially those who have to drive in NYC.
      I'm really just here for the pancakes.

      NYer here living in NJ, I think NJ drivers does suck. The ones in the South typically are worse than the Northern parts.

      I think part of the problem is that NJ is a highway state, just about everyone on the East Coast that need to travel from north or south vice versa need to pass through NJ. This often causes lots of traffic jams for the resident of the state.

      I've driven to many states, I think it's bad everywhere. NYC is bad but people do move their arses to avoid others.

      Generally, anyone not lived in a densely populated area are slow and have poor reaction time.

      The worst is drivers in a newly crowded area. Columbus, OH was a cow town until about 20 yrs ago. Drivers here adhere to the "oh no, after you" school of driving. There's also a lot of stopping all the traffic behind you to let a pedestrian cross even though they're waiting patiently and don't expect you to stop. Lots of waiting around green lights and stopping at yield signs, too. Ridiculous. I've been to Jersey and I don't think it's as annoying as here. In general, North East drivers seem to know what they're doing.
