Old people were out in full force fucking up the traffic this weekend. I saw the old guy riding his bike down i-75 with the state trooper escort. Before that an old guy on his little scooter decided to go from the side walk to the road without looking and did it right in front of me. On the way home there was an old lady that couldn't recognize she had a green light. We're still missing street lights from the hurricane a year ago. There's 2 left lanes and 2 lanes going straight, each lane normally has a light, but the left straight lane has no light. This lady sat in the left lane until the left turn lanes got their green light. By that point every light was green and she knew it was ok to go. She sat there for at least a minute before she finally started to drive and I can't believe no one honked at her. Then she also tried to take a left turn for a second. She realized her mistake and kept going straight though. That lady was so clueless she probably shouldn't be driving, especially a big suv like she had.
OOOF! Old people traffic. Yet another reason I will never move to Florida that I didn't realize yet
Old Austrian joke - A farmer with his horse drawn cart comes into town for the first time and sees a traffic light. It is red. He stops and says to his son "look at that, they have light here!" A minute or so later, the light turns yellow and he says "wow, the lights even change colors". A while later it turns green, then yellow and as it turns red he says " OK, we've seen this already, let's go."And it's not even season yet.
I call it Einstein's theory of drivingNothing makes me more upset than being told to calm down when I'm already calm but pointing out some of the interesting driving occuring directly around us. Coming home from picking up dinner we saw - a crv turn right across traffic, cutting off oncoming without a turn signal into the one way drive of a busy store, a car pull out directly in front of us, no turn signal and proceed to go ten under the speed limit as well as homeless beggers who have taken up residence next to all freeway offramps just casually jaywalking across 45 mph traffic. When I'm on my bike, this is why i ride with mirrored visors only and constantly drive hyper defensively on surface streets.
I mean car guys can get along across generations for the most part.Sounds like someone's making judgements about people before getting to know them!
