That may be partly true, but I go to L.A. and Chicago quite often, and i'm always amazed at how much better the drivers are there. Then i come back to salt lake, and i'm like 'wow, what a bunch of a-hole drivers'.

but yeah, we may have over-exaggerated how bad the driver's are here in utah.

[sarcasm]Well, God told me that Salt Lake has the worst drivers - I don't care what your statistics say.[/sarcasm]

I moved from Northern Virginia to Utah a year and a half ago. As far as traffic- I thought I died and went to heaven. Sure there's heavy traffic during rush hour- but it's NOTHING compared to driving on 495, I-95 or anywhere near D.C. I remember being stuck in traffic there constantly. At midnight on a Tuesday- I would be sitting in traffic. Sometimes it would take 30 minutes to inch a mile.I HATED it. So I don't get people who complain about the rush hour "traffic" here. From my perspective it's just fine. As far as drivers being rude- I guess so- but I think there are rude drivers everywhere- And courteous drivers everywhere. I have seen both. I'd say it's about 50/50.


Hi sailgirl7. I lived in Silver Spring for a couple years, before coming to Europe.

The beltway was a nightmare, expecially at rush hour, to be sure. Downtown D.C. was pretty scary at times as well. I guess, because there are so many people there, that I took it as a given that the traffic would be terrible. It's all relative, to be sure.
Thanks for all the statistics.

Everyone come to Germany. The autobahn is great. Very good drivers. Hardly ever see any accidents. Oh how I wish I had my dreamcar (Porsche 9-11, '68). I'd never want to work. LOL

I kinda want a '67 Shelby Gt 500 myself:

Or I'd settle for the '69 Camaro Z28 !

I'd love to come to Deutschland but my German is terrible- I forgot most of what I learned in school! :)

P.S. Sorry for derailing the thread Jersey Girl!

Guten Tag, right back to you.

Yes, that is the one, except I would prefer silver, or even black.

My German is terrible, but I get by here. Come and visit anytime, really!
