driving techniques employed by the typical Hampton Roads' driver
Share your stories whether they are about crap drivers, accidents, traffic for NO REASON, parking nightmares, etc. Pictures and heck, video, are even great.
If you're unfamiliar with this area, we have the largest concentration of military bases and facilities in the world all squished into a seaside metropolitan area of about 1.7 million people in 8 cities. These cities are connected by a poorly designed and so-so maintained, aging road surface connected by 4 tunnels and a numerous amount of draw bridges. Our roads are heavily
patrolled (mostly around blind curves) by local and state police. And to top it off, it's totally legal in this state to drive while talking on your cell phone.
In short, driving here is a freaking nightmare.
Disclaimer: I am in no way shape or form dismissing myself as not being part of the ongoing problem. Just a lot of us have some humourous stories and we think it's time they get a home of their own.
