Minneapolis has ranked in the top-five of the nation's rudest drivers, according to a study just out. We out road-raged notoriously congested cities like Miami and Houston for laying on the horn, using obscene gestures, blabbing on our cell-phones and basically driving way too fast. New York came in first and the unlikely laid-back San Diego hit the top-ten for the first time.
So, if traffic's down and one could take their Ferrari as fast as it might go, it might sound a bit like this.
why am I not surprised..... although Atlanta GA Birminham AL are as bad as Minneapolis St Paul Drivers .God Protect us all
I grew up and learned to drive in California and spent four years in NY/Philadelphia area plus several years of living and driving in Paris, France. When I moved to Minnesota forty-five years ago, I was taken by how poorly Minnesotans drive, and it has only gotten worse. At first speed was not a problem, and I generally drove faster than most Minnesotans. Now speeding is common, as is lane changing without signaling and then when you signal a lane change, Minnesotans regularly speed up to prevent you from changing lanes, often offering a Ted Williams salute to put you in your place. Rudeness is commonplace. Garrison Keillor was right when he said that as soon as a Minnesotan gets behind the wheel of a car, Minnesota nice disappears. There are many wonderful things about living in Minnesota. Driving on the state's streets and highways, contending with road rudeness, is not one of them.
