Obey the Speed Limit? Who Does That?

September 20, 2008 at 11:57 am 1 comment

driving in omaha is completely different than driving in massachusetts.  people here actually respect the speed limit; they don’t take it as a mere suggestion.  when it’s 35 everyone drives 35, which drives me crazy.  in massachusetts you will not get a ticket for going 5 or 10 over, so 35 is never actually the case.  but here, it’s not even possible to test the limits. 

when you drive downtown they have the traffic lights set up so you have to slow down and approach the line before it will turn green.  this also causes me to stress.  and not to mention that you can’t turn left on dodge street ( which is the major street that is used like a highway in the city).  you have to make three rights instead to equal a left.  how annoying!  then there’s strange one way signs…its one way in one direction in the morning and then one way in the opposite direction in the afternoon.  either make the street big enough for two directions of traffic or make it one way in one direction all the time!

obviously, i’ve been holding this in for a while, and it’s starting to get to me.

    Exactly the OPPOSITE for me, Coming from Nebraska traffic is sane and orderly, here in the Northeast it is ridiculous. All depends on what you are used to.

    well i’m use to making left turns right when the light turns green, cutting off the other driver so he has no chance to move…
