16 Annoying Things Oklahoma Drivers Do Behind the Wheel
While sitting around the table at lunch a few days ago, the topic of conversation quickly became Oklahoma drivers. Living in a military town, we have drivers from all corners of the country. The same can be said about the backgrounds of my coworkers.
The Downtown Studio demographics broke up like this... 3 Lawtonians, 3 Oklahomans, and 1 each from Louisiana, Iowa, Texas, Missouri, Indiana, and Michigan. While differing opinions were evenly matched, enough for us anyway, we talked about the annoying tendencies of drivers, arguing where the worst of them were from.
Now I've lived in a bunch of different states and driven in even more. Even though my family constantly makes fun of my "old man" driving style, they always opt to have me behind the wheel during vacations... As a solid and safe driver, I feel that I can confidently say Texas has the worst drivers. Florida and Hawaii tie in a close second, but nobody accepted that.
Truth be told, it doesn't matter where any of us is from, we don't think our home states are full of bad drivers. The Okies defended Oklahoma to the bone, the Hawkeye insisted the bulk of vehicles in Iowa are agricultural relates, and the fact that there's a whole city in Michigan where everyone rides bicycles somehow made it into the conversation.
The majority around the table that day agreed, Oklahoma has the worst drivers.
If you think about the time you've spent on the road, the things you've either seen or done yourself, can you really argue with that?
While I refuse to accept that Oklahoma is the worst place to drive in traffic, I do think these are some of the more universal annoying driving habits of people all over... but since it has to be locally specific as per the rules of corporate, here are the worst traffic sins an Oklahoma driver can commit.
