I live in the Ballard area of Seattle. Ballard is famous for old Norwegians, Dodge Darts and BAD drivers. I witness poor examples of vehicle control on an hourly basis AND know an intersection that can guarantee that I get cut off EVERY TIME I pass through it. Maybe you have seen a feature on Ballard drivers on Almost Live on TV, maybe not. In short, drivers are stupid.
So, I wonder, "Are there any neighborhoods that are known for their GOOD drivers?". If I travel, are there other neighborhoods in other cities that are also known for crappy drivers?
The intersection in front of my business has so many accidents, I don't even bother to look when I hear a big crunch of two cars--I just dial for help, then mosey out there.
I do think motorcyclists are, in general, WAY better drivers of any vehicle--we have to be.
