    I too am addicted. Jenny is one of the best examples of musical comedy I've ever heard. I love awkward laughing. In time, of course.

It's the people that drive centered on the double yellow lines, going 20 mph under the speed limit, and pulling out infront of me so that I have to slam on the brakes to slow down in time that I get mad at.

    Most people can drive, but somehow you always run into the idiots on the road.

    Oh, but Jack, you forgot about the people who think they can merge onto an interstate where people are going an average of 70 MPH while at 45 MPH. That's not a mistake, that's just.. I dunno what that is, but it's annoying.

    Washington DC is near Mason Dixon line. It also is bordered by Virginia, and according to a survey, more people from Viriginia feel they are part of "The South" than any other state. So yeah, it's partially the South, and partially the East Coast, which is a bad mix.

    But yeah, in DC you have a mix of a bunch of different driving styles, on top of cramped inner city on-ramps that are designed for people to merge into traffic going 55. Which is bound to make hellish driving conditions.

    That's because we have people who drop bricks off of overpasses, and an aging infrastructure that hasn't been taken care of, and an auto industry that doesn't believe in public transportation, and on-ramps that are too short even if traffic is driving at 55 miles an hour to merge, but us Michigan drivers believe the speed limit is something to obtain on our way up to ninety.

    But, DC traffic is worse, by far, far, far.

    But Cincinnati on-ramps are the worst (in my experience), but then again, I swear they let goats be their city planners.

    All I can remember of DC traffic is that "a good day" consists of traffic crawling along at 10 miles per hour. A bad day.. well.. you don't ever wanna be in DC on a bad day of traffic.

    DC and LA are the two worst in the country. I saw a report recently giving a huge number of hours wasted in commute time for DC.

    New York did it right, they put the public transport infrastructure in before they grew all sprawling.

    But if you as a city sprawl before you do HUGE public transport efforts, than your peoples will only give more of their money to the oil companies, and their time being dazzled by the beautious landscape of the gridlocked interstate.

    On "CarTalk" when my family was living just outside of Los Angeles, I remember a guy called in from LA saying that he didn't own a car and biked around the city, and should he buy a car? he'd already been hit once. And the guys were like, "No, go for it - and we'll send your mother flowers if somebody runs you over. You must be the only guy in that whole city who doesn't have a car."

    Probably true. It's against the law to build a house without a two-car garage.

    All of you are wrong, Boston is absolutely the worst traffic anywhere.
    Just look at what we have to do for insurance! This week alone I've been nearly run over four times, rear ended three, and someone chucked a half eaten sandwich at me!

    And you want bad traffic? Get this. In 2004 the traffic in London moved at the same average speed as it did in the 1880s, when all the traffic was pulled by horses! So much for progress.

    Ha! Statistics!

    Keep in mind that the average volume of people being moved will have increased substantially.

    Furthermore, the amount of...horse fertilization...has been nearly zeroed (though admitedly replaced by pollutants of a different nature).

    I've heard that it's the Montreal drivers who speed up to hit you really nicely, while the Torontoians slow down for accuracy. Is this true?

    I don't live in Montreal. Thank God. I've been there twice, and I nearly got killed by cars countless times. Even though I spent most of the time in rural areas where there aren't a lot of cars. I don't know what's wrong with them - maybe hearing Quebecois-accented French all day drives everyone insane?

    I can't comment on Toronto, but yes, Montreal drivers speed up if anything's in their path, whether the thing in their path is a pedestrian, a traffic barrier, a moose, another car, a tree, a lake, etc.

    I agree with this fellow. It's why I rarely drive anywhere in Boston. The only Boston driving I do is driving under the death-trap Big Dig tunnel to get north of the city. Oh, and our population decrease has more to do with the price of living in this state, than anything, in my opinion. heh.

    No! That's ridiculous! Torontonians stop for pedestrians. Really. I mean, they have those Remingtons for a reason. And Montrealers don't speed up. I mean, they're not watching the road, how would they know when to do it? They just put their foot on the gas and lie back, get a good book, argue with significant others, you know.

    Ease of killingness? Or is it because their flavours intermingle in a delightful blend of fear, pain, and cloth fabric? Because seriously, if you wanna stay alive in Montreal, go alone, go singly, try to hide, and avoid the trees. Groups just make us hungry.

    You know, while I visited Montreal, I don't remember having a hard time with traffic (other than trying to guess what the signs said).

    I had the most trouble with prissy people not understanding that I didn't speak French.
