One final observation: Fuck whoever decided that about 30 yards was enough merge space from a near dead stop onto a highway.

And especially fuck Prius drivers going 0-60 in 18 seconds nearly getting me rear ended by another fucking giant ass jeep.

And what the fuck is with the Jeeps? And who decided that bed liner is a paint color? And are punisher and blue lives matter stickers the second largest industry in town or what?

Oh so you were on the Parkway East? Hence the name "Park" way.....

Jeeps are fine but the folks that load it up with body armor are flat out fools. And for the blue live matter stickers go to any Jeep convention it must be a rite of passage.
Those folks not only ruined the colors red and orange but Jeeps also.

It's possible. One thing is for sure is that if I was, I intended to go west and picked the wrong lane.

For instance, Atlanta's road system might have been drawn by a 5-year-old with a crayon but Pittsburgh is like Fuck it there is no hope.

I have not seen that many 5 way intersections since the last time I was in Boston.

An old joke is that you will find a one way dead end street in Pittsburgh that crosses a bridge.

By the don’t ask about route 28 north or the 31st bridge, namely the 31st street intersection with 28. As bad as that is now it used to be MUCH worse, What exists now, seriously ARE the improvements.

I originally wondered why there were so many more bad drivers in other areas of the country after moving away. Learning to drive in Pittsburgh has prepared me for anything.
I will never forget the day my dad taught me to drive a stick. Took me into Squirrel Hill and namely on negley hill. He parked the car on the hill got out and told me good luck. :D

Side note he was a mechanic and the car already had a bad clutch and was getting to replace it anyway.

Hey Pittsburgh people, is this guy any good?

He performed better than Mason Rudolph when Ben was out that year. Unfortunately that doesn’t say much since he has a weak arm but does have an ok pocket presence and can scramble if needed.

Really only good in short spurts.

Let me add, as a Steeler fan you try and forget 2019 as much as possible. Because it shows how bad they will be when Ben officially retires.

I have been out of Baltimore long enough to have gone soft I guess. Only a few roads in Baltimore are fucked up, but the people are crazy.

Out here in the cornfields, the roads are wide and there is space for me to be driving like a Baltimorean (read: REALLY fast when there is open space)

This is what makes drivers in Pittsburgh.
Roads like this, especially in the winter:
Dropped pin

It is a dead end hill with a cement wall at the end.
