Default Dallas Drivers are....

We get a little ice and snow flakes and this city shuts down and drivers get completely retarded. I understand driving cautious under these conditions but I dont know if its the wind chill or all the whiteness but something triggers the idiot sensor in everyones brains down here!! And all you hear on the news is talk about the visitors here for the superbowl... UMMMM HELLLOOOO, the people here for the superbowl are used to driving in conditions like this and are probably laughing or cussing at us locals!!!

Driver's in Florida get retarded when we get our afternoon thunderstorms. We get great storms just about every afternoon in the summer, you'd think people would get used to it but as soon as it starts they drive like idiots...Amazing that people never learn!!

Come to IN. We'll show you how it's done.

I have a package stuck in Texas right now with UPS. Looks like I'm going to have to drive down there to get it.

I drive a Crown Vic around in snow, sometimes 10+ inches, all the time. RWD with decent snow tires will do better than a lot FWD cars if you know how to drive them.

Here 50 miles south of Dallas there is patchy ice on the roads but nothing bad and there still driving like morons! Some of the rural schools STILL shut down but my kids didn't, was pissed he had to go to school and others didn't. I feel for you antknee, I wouldn't want to be driving with them either!
