Driving in Jacksonville Florida

I have lived in Jacksonville Florida for the last 6 years and these are a few of the observations I have made
  • When someone is blabbing on their cell phone the turn signals do not operate.
  • If some SUV narrowly misses running you off the road while driving like an ass it will be an anemic looking broad about 25 years old with a cell phone in one hand and a cigarette / coffee mug in the other.
  • Dump trucks do not have to yield right of way or stop at red lights.
  • If someone is stopped while the light is green it is more than likely some old fart adjusting the seat or the sun visor. He/she will proceed (quickly) when the light turns red.
  • When Making eye contact with another driver wear mirror style sunglasses.
  • Never get behind a Duval County School Bus.
  • Expect any little fender bender to be gawked at by everyone to see if it was "Somebody I Knew".
  • It seems absolutely proper the throw cigarette butts out the window at stoplights.
  • It seems absolutely proper the dump the ashtray out on the ground at Wal-Mart Super Centers.
  • It seems the normal thing to do is blow your horn after .00025 seconds of a light turning green.
