New York Drivers


We may not be the worst drivers around. I’ve been to other states (not mentioning names) that have been way worse. But, there are lots of us who are pretty bad. You know what I’m talking about…

If you don’t, here are some examples:

Slow Rider

He is the one who gets onto the parkway and doesn’t step on the gas. Everyone around him is doing 55 or 60 mph and he’s strolling along at maybe 40 mph. He gets onto the parkway, you let him in, and he never puts his foot on the gas.

Zig Zagger

He’s the one that can’t be patient. He zig-zags through traffic as if he is the only one on the road. He weaves in and out of traffic and speeds along the way.

Shoulder Rider

This is when there is bumper-to-bumper traffic and the person decides to ride on the shoulder to either get off at the next exit or just continue to ride on the shoulder to get ahead of everyone else.

Exit Cutter

This is the driver that has no patience. He won’t wait in the exit line so when he finds an opening, he goes for it.

Slow Poke

This is when there is traffic and you’re not sure why. Slow Poke is one of the first cars going 30 mph on a 55 – 60 mph road. He is holding everyone back. There are times when there are three in a row holding everyone up.

Fear of Cops

Then there are the drivers who are afraid of the police. Every time Waze says Police ahead, they slow down significantly, causing a traffic jam.

Accident Watchers

What about the accident watchers? There’s an accident on the other side of the highway, and drivers on your side slow down to almost a halt to see what’s going on.
