You should try Vancouver BC Canada. 75% of the drivers are new citizens where they either didn't drive before ever, drive on the other side. Or both plus they have so much money they all buy cars with 500 plus horsepower and can't handle it or go toooooo slooooooow. And I drive a commercial truck in that madness. People here are so rude on the road. They see a turn signal and speed up to jam you from getting over or in. Because where they come from its a dog eat dog world.

I find only the PA Turnpike scarier than I-81 from Hagerstown to Bristol, Va. I, and many others call it the Suicide Highway.

We just got back from a quick 2 day trip out.. Had to drive though the City of Dallas.. I was in the right hand lane going a bit slow I'll admit because I had 30 - 35 mph cross winds with gusts. Had 2 different idiots go around on my right into freeway entrance ramps to get around me.. One just barely missed clipping a guy getting into his truck on the emergency lane. Not counting the other idiots who just can't wait for their exit ramp so they have to pass like a bat out of hell on the left lane and then fly over into my lane right in front of me to just barely make their exit.. Had there been ANYBODY exiting slowly they would have taken all of us out... If cops could give out tickets for just being stupid they would have solved all of the city money issues on those freeways..

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Hey... the motto here in Tennessee is that speed limit signs are just suggestions..... as are most other rules of the road. I have my own theory...TN has one of the worst educational systems in the Nation as far as students actually learning something.....I think they just don't know what the numbers are. Anything greater the number of fingers and toes, they're clueless.....

On the other hand we recently returned from a round trip from South Carolina to Boston. Just in the truck, no trailer. Try going across the George Washington bridge just north of NYC at 2:00 pm on a Friday. Bumper to bumper for 50 miles across bridge into Conn. There were no accidents. Just not enough lanes for the traffic. Came back on the Tappanzee Bridge on 287 Sunday afternoon. Much better route however would not want a trailer behind me on either. Now I know why I no longer live in New York.

Same in Utah, semis passing in a down pour at 85 - 90 mph. We pulled off and waited out the rain. Since we are from Washington rain is a good thing.

Funny how they keep legislating that autos and trucks be manufactured to get better mileage as well as legislating all the safety requirements. Manufacturers comply to get better gas mileage and stronger safety and then they legislate higher speeds on interstates to counteract the initial legislation. With better mileage you use less gas, this leads to less gas taxes being paid, raising the speed limit is a way to get more money. Think they refer this as an exercise in "Mental Masturbation"

My biggest gripe are the drivers that "camp" out in the passing lane with no intention of, well...... passing!!

We just got back today from a trip to upstate N.Y. and back home. I will say I did see several motorists pulled over in Pa. and Ohio. I've heard the troopers in PA don't allow for the "5 mile over rule"!
