Driving in a big city like L.A. can be so stressful . It sometimes feels like I'm doing battle just to get to the grocery store, much less across town . What is it about getting behind thewheel that brings out people's aggressive side? The most mild-mannered mother of three turns into a race car driver when she gets on the road.
In L.A., people rely on the freeway to commute to their jobs or just to get around town. I think driving on the freeway has it's good and bad. On the one hand, there are no stoplightsand the speed limit is over 55 miles per hour so you can get somewhere in a flash . But, on the other hand, there are drawbacks , too. People like to gun their engines and cut offother cars to get ahead. The other day, I saw a guy in a Porsche get into the passing lane , race ahead of the Honda that was in front of him, and cut that person off. Then, the guy in the Honda tries to catch up to the Porsche. They're both zipping in and out of traffic, almost causing an accident. They were speeding and changing lanes without looking or signalling . I was sure they were going to cause a big pile up.
As an alternate to the freeway, I sometimes take surface streets. Of course, surface streetshave their drawbacks, too. If you have a long commute to work or school, it can take you ages to get there. There are stop signs, stop lights, and crosswalks to deal with. And, people sometimes tailgate if they think you're not going fast enough. Now that I think about it, there's sometimes even more congestion on surface streets than on the freeways!
There's no getting around it living in L.A. We need better public transportation and more people to walk, bike, or rollerblade to work. But as the famous song goes, "Nobody Walks in L.A." [by the Missing Persons]
Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
