What I have been saying for this area is the Military is at fault. Since it is a highly military congested area we have all the retards stationed out here. I see pretty bad drivers on the highways and pretty much everyone has a red or blue base sticker, even the green civilian sticker. On base they think some rules don't apply at all also. Pisses me off.
Phoenix and L.A. traffic is pretty bad from personal experiance, obviously L.A. is pretty famous for bad traffic. Both locations are big metropoltain areas, I would rather drive in those places than here. I can't wait to get back home and drive some mountain twisties everyday and deal with no traffic and hidden cops.
