I am not going to sit here and pontificate this does not happen in Miami because you would scream “BULLSHIT!” to the top of your lungs and rightfully point out the almost weekly shooting in I-95 around the Golden Glades Interchange.

My thing is that for some silly reason, I expected nicer traffic up here. Southern politeness and all that?  People being charming and helping you deal with the morning rush hour with a smile and a friendly wave. And it does happen, but not on any of the interstates. Rather than being in traffic among drivers following the rules and regulations of the State of Tennessee, sometimes you feel like you are in the middle of a Jeb Stuart raid. And what’s with the tailgating people? Seriously, back the eff up, some of us transplants interpret that as a precursor for carjacking.

I am gonna stick to regular roads for a while. 😀

  1. Tailgating is EVERYWHERE. I think “drivers ed” is an oxymoron…. Speeding, tailgating is a daily thing here no matter how much over the speed limit you drive. I noticed it seems to be much much worse down south..

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
