I was born and brought up in Boston and learned to drive there. To me, Boston-style driving is normal, despite what my wife says. It's aggressive, sure, but it's really very predictable. I've also lived in the California Bay Area and here in Seattle, so I've experienced many different ways of driving. California didn't really feel right to me -- it seemed to have a lot of people who understood how to drive, but it lacked the aggressive passion of driving in Boston. Seattle is wonderful to drive in -- you signal to change lanes on the highway and people actually make room for you.

So Florida last week was horrible. It follows no pattern of driving that I can discern except that nobody seems to know where they're going, people won't let you in, they turn left from the right lane and right from the left lane, they drive down the middle of the road, they speed up and slow down randomly...

Plus, they have too many license plates.
