As a native Oregonian that has lived in Southern California, and frequently experiences the pure idiocy of Washington drivers, I have to agree with you. Oregonians frequently drive as though their heads were somewhere other than atop their necks. As I said in a previous post, I do not have a drivers license, I became a cyclist instead. I can't even count how many times I've had to take a spill on my bike because it was either fall, or be smashed by an SUV. And of course, the drivers always acted like it was MY fault that their gigantic, gas guzzling, vehicle was being poorly piloted by an unobservant asshole.

My ex-husband and I were rear ended at a red light a few years ago. The driver hit and run, paying no attention whatsoever to that I was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time. Luckily the baby and I were both okay, but when the police caught the driver, it turned out he had driven off because he was uninsured and had a suspended license.

I got my learners permit when I was 15, in 1995. From '95 to '98, I witnessed 4 accidents that all required the response of multiple EMT units. The combination of having seen such accidents scared me so much, to this day, I have not ever held a license to drive.
