Driving Styles

Chicago: One hand on wheel, one hand on horn.

New York: One hand on wheel, one finger out window.

New Jersey: One hand on wheel, one finger out window, cutting
across all lanes of traffic.

Boston: One hand on wheel, one hand on newspaper, foot solidly
on accelerator.

Toronto: Both hands clenched on steering wheel, driver staring
directly forward, cutting in front of you and slowing down to 40
in a 60 zone then looking in rearview mirror in wonder as to why
the car behind is flashing high beams.

Los Angeles: One hand on wheel, one hand on nonfat double decaf
cappuccino, cradling cell phone, brick on accelerator with gun
in lap.

Ohio, but driving in California: Both hands on wheel, eyes shut,
both feet on brake, quivering in terror.

Italy: Both hands in air and gesturing, both feet on
accelerator, head turned to talk to someone in back seat.

Seattle: One hand on latte, one knee on wheel, cradling cell
phone, foot on brake, mind on game.

Texas: One hand on wheel, one hand on hunting rifle, alternating
between both feet being on the accelerator and both feet on the
brake, throwing a McDonald's bag out the window.

West Virginia: Four-wheel drive pickup truck, shotgun mounted in
rear window, beer cans on floor, squirrel tails attached to
antenna.

Florida: Two hands gripping wheel, blue hair barely visible
above window level, driving 35 on the Interstate in the left
lane with the left blinker on.

Combine these two and you have me except it's a trashy novel instead of a newspaper

Re: Driving Styles

Chicago: One hand on wheel, one hand on horn.

This is totally me, but the hand is on the horn because of all the morons who decide to change lanes before they pass the car next to them, requiring you to have an air horn loud enough to distract them from their cell phone conversation and make them realize they nearly took out another car. Some people say it's because of my tiny car, but come on, how do you not notice a car this bright and colorful? http://www.miata.net/gallery/images/02crystal.jpg

Re: Driving Styles

Bloke my brother pulled over last week:

One hand on phone, one hand holding burger, one knee on wheel, one foot on accelerator, one knee folded up underneath him, and 1 dog attempting to climb into his lap.
