I've said it before and I'll say it again: Austin has the worst drivers in the world!
It is one of the main reasons we want to flee the city. Every day is like a video game, where the strongest and most skilled will make it to their destinations without incident.
I don't know what it is, perhaps all the people coming here from other places like California (sorry California, but I've caught a few of your plates doing all the wrong things) get here and realize the streets are overcrowded and traffic sucks, and they end up getting frustrated and doing things their own way, no matter who it effects.
It's very scary at times.
But the day when we get out of here gets closer and closer, so we'll just have to continue playing the video game and doing our best not to lose.
