Oh, so what we should do is build a wall for the HOV lane like they have in CA... Then maybe the idiots can understand...
There are a ton of stupid rules that I don't expect everyone to know (like it is illegal not to yield to faster traffic in the left lanes, even if they are speeding).
But seriously, there's giant signs all over the place that say "DO NOT CROSS DOUBLE WHITE LINE"
Maybe we should paint them yellow... that seems to work better in other states... Course... I've never been anywhere where anyone does the "last-minute-5-lane-change-to-exit."
Seriously, Utah drivers are the worst. I've been to Vegas tons of times, they are much more aggressive than here. But they know what they are doing. If we could take Cali's drivers and bring them here for driving lessons, perhaps we'd be better off. They signal all the time, they let people over when they're signalling, despite how much traffic there is it is so peaceful to drive in Cali. Both around LA and around SFO, including during rush hour. Where if I am in the far left lane and signal to get over, it takes only a few minutes for space to clear to let me over... That would NEVER happen here.
Other than during serious stop-and-go rush hour. Most of the time people are going slower in the HOV lane here anyway.
