Lol.... people don't like suggestions.

Edit: And don't get me started on people driving in a little bit of rain down here! (I'm originally from upper Michigan and that's where I learned to drive) I can't imagine what people from here would drive like up there in a snow storm. LOL

Stupid traffic jams because of someone changing a flat on the side of the road? Everyone slowing down to see what’s up!

People cutting you off at whatever speed, no turn signal, no courtesy at all.

STUPID accidents! That even a child with just a few logged hours driving a power wheel couldn’t replicate and would probably drive a motor vehicle better than 90% of the people on these roads.

At least 2-3 times a week I need to take detours (+15mins) when i get off work (130am) because the exit I use for 59 is closed because some moron decided to crash and trash all lanes with parts, debris or whatever reason.

a space of 100ft in between the car in front when traffic is slow, talking on the phone, texting or just plain and simply not giving a fk about other people in a hurry or actually wanting to get somewhere on time

Blocking intersections when the traffic light switched to red

People slowing down to 20mph in a 60 mph because it’s raining just a bit and the road is a little wet?

Im pretty sure this is everywhere but here its pretty bad IMO

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just had to rant, sorry

People blocking intersections when light is red!!!!!!!! San Felipe and 610 i suppose that is what ur talking about.... I cant stand it! I flip them off every morning and they nodd their head like they dont know what the heck they r doing. Smh.

SvviftSVT yeah, traffic sucks. but its easy to get by...

stay away from San Antonio because their freeways are [retard]'ed
Dallas just plain sucks traffic wise... no offense to our D-town homies.

since Houston is such a melting pot, it takes drivers from all over the place and throws them on congested roads.

and with accidents happening at late hours of the night, well sadly, those are usually alcohol related (either the driver him/herself or another vehicle on the road)... i don't know how many times i have seen people GOING THE WRONG WAY ON A FREEWAY.... FOR MILES!!!

best advice i can give, thread that needle, bob and weave, and turn it into a little game.
