Last week I drove into the south Bay for the first time on a weekday in what seems like forever; I’d forgotten, of course, what a pain it can be with the traffic which last week was also compounded by the first rain in a while. I’m pretty spoiled for not having to deal with that when I’m on a bike/train commute, since there’s really nothing otherwise to keep me honest in terms of dealing with other motorists. Were they always this aggressive? Is it just here or everywhere else as well? then again there was that crash course in Korean driving etiquette a month ago, where our colleague showed us everyone has a dash cam, everyone uses their blinkers aggressively and unsteadily.
Everyone. It’s too early in the day to be dealing with these absolutes, isn’t it? Absolutely.
