And they say Dayton is the safest city for driving. YEAH FJLSGLKL RIGHT.
I thought Dayton was just the pothole capital of Ohio? Last time I went up through there it felt like I was driving through ChinaTown in New York City.

I had a 5' 2" blonde lady in the biggest Yukon I've seen back into an old lady at the hospital I work at. Saw it happen. It was slow and thankfully someone yelled at her dumb ass. Rule of thumb. If you need a booster seat to see the road, you need a smaller car.

There's an It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode about that, called Reynolds vs. Reynolds: The Cereal Defense. Hilarious episode.

Yep. But honestly I think WI drivers aren't that bad. They have somewhat decent lane discipline and merging tactics on the highway, which of course dissolves a bit when you get into Milwaukee or Madison during rush hour. When it snows most folks are pretty adept and reasonable. If anything, people drive too slowly and cautiously around here, which I'll take over batshit crazy driving any day.

Oh sorry I edited my post because on reflection I'm not sure if I really saw a driver eating cereal. I think it may have been a passenger but I still thought it was weird and it stuck in my mind. It was years ago.
