Traffic Rules, that is.
I have lived here now for 11 months.
This is what I have observed.
A Yellow light means: speed up!!
The first three seconds of a red light means: FASTER!!!
In Arizona the common knowledge was
two cars can make the left turn on a yellow light.
Here there seems to be some debate between
whether four cars can make the yellow light, or five.
It seems to be the general agreement of Utah motorists
that 30 ft is PLENTY of space to pull out in front of someone.
ESPECIALLY if there is absolutely no other vehicle behind the
one you pull out in front of. The one that has to break,
sometimes really hard,
so they don't hit you.
The 30ft rule can be cut in half if you are making a left turn
and only crossing the path of the on coming vehicle.
Maybe the idea here is, being t-boned is awesome??
On the freeway, using the space to the right
that in normally reserved for people who
have broken down or are being pulled over to PASS
a car that is going 15 miles over the speed limit
is perfectly acceptable, as long as your car
is cooler than theirs.
Utah pedestrians also seem to have a unique philosophy.
I think they are thinking,
If I die today then I get to go to Heaven,
where things are much cooler anyway.
Because dressing in ALL BLACK to go
jogging at 11:00 at night is the cool thing to do.
If you do this AND use your ipod/ cell phone
you are even more cool.
SO, if any of you, my outside of Utah friends,
are on your way up here, you just might want
to keep a few of these things in mind,
so you can RIDE YOUR BREAK
and keep and eye out for those
