I recently moved to Utah from California. Literally....EVERY time I drive on the freeway (I-15 mainly) I am blown away at the way people drive. I am this close to making a bumper sticker for my car that says: "UTAH - the worlds worst, uncoucious, unsafe, disrespectful, rude, crazy, stupidest POS drivers in existence."

The tail gating is absolutely OUT OF CONTROL. I repeat, OUT OF CONTROL!!!!! I can be driving 80 mph down the freeway and literally have someone 3 feet from my bumper. I don't get it. What in the hell are these people thinking. You've got people speeding in and out of traffic, not using their blinkers, cutting people off, etc...

Just yesterday I was driving with my wife to work in the car pool lane. There was four cars in front of me and I was behind the car in front of me by at least 35 yards. The car behind me sped up and while she drove past me she stared at me and gave me an extremely dirty look and then sped off. I mean, what in the hell is that all about. AND the sad part about it is most of these people im sure are people I would run into at church on sunday. Utah saints make me sad to be LDS. I have also found that the most rude, unsafe drivers around her are females, usually with children in the back. It blows my mind.

Do people NOT know what the car pool lane is for? TWO or more people in your car you idiots, TWO. NOT ONE, TWO!!! I know some can pay a fee and be able to drive in that lane, but I seriously doubt that most of those people pay a fee. They are just driving out of control and cutting everyone off to get where they need to be. Its absolutely ridiculous. OUT OF CONTROL, and if i was not married, I am the type of person who would chase you off the road and take you out. People need to understand that there are like people like me on the road. I am a very curtious and safe driver, always driving with respect. But since I have moved here, all I see is total craziness and out of control drivers on the freeways. Utah drivers have no respect for themselves or anyone else on the road. all they care about is getting to where they need to be, no matter how fast they have to go or how many people they need to piss off to get there. Thats all I have to say, but this is out of control and very pathetic.

Welcome to Utah. Land of the Righteous and Stupid.

Wait until conference lets out. You'll see a sea of minivans with the entire clan in them with Dad all dressed up in his Sunday best racing back to Provo at 90 MPH cutting each other off, not using the turn signal with a bumper stick that says Families Are Forever.

I just drive the 5 under the speed limit, especially on the one-lane city roads. It is fun to see Mama with her big Utah beehive hairdo get snotty while talking on the cell phone.

recently i moved to utah from ohio and i have traveled all over the states for years. i have to say that utah drivers are the worst of anywhere i have seen. utah highways have a terrible setup with 3 regular lanes and an additional HOV(high occupancy vehicle) lane at the far left for cars with more than 1 person. people love to stay in the fast lane and drive the speed limit or 5 over even when they have like 10 cars behind them. which forces the faster cars to pass on the right. passing on the right would not be so bad but the slow people always stay in the middle lane because the far right lane is usually used for entering and exiting traffic because of the number of on/off ramps. so essentially there are 2 lanes that most of the people use.
mostly ive seen this kind of idiotic inconsiderate driving behavior from areas with older rich people who drive fancy cars and think that they should be in the fast lane to drive whatever speed they want at their leisure. it makes sense to see this type of behavior in utah because 95% of the population are LDS. and if you have ever lived in an LDS community you know they are some of the most stuck-up mindless brainwashed drones to ever live on this planet. F U, you closed-minded LDS fools.

ever been to Carribbean or Mexico.

The Provo - Orem area is the worse. Fast lane backs up, people start driving like idiots, get around the hold up, it's two Mormon looking young men laughing because they know they are holding traffic up, mean while the idiots behind them are inches away from dying or killing someone else.

I totally agree, having lived in Michigan, Colorado, Washington, California and Texas; Utah drivers are the worse.

Having lived in Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida and Latin America, and driven in many countries, I have to say that Utahrds are the absolute worst. At least in Latin America you don't have to "act" propper and can insult people!! Tailgating, where should i start!! Even if driving 10 miles over speed limit and on the center lane people will tailgate behind you. What's the deal?? Why so rude?? I just think that there's still a lot of ignorant people that don't know better.

um yeah we just moved here from the Bay California and not only are the people here rude and racist they're the worst drivers we've ever seen and back home if someone knows they made a mistake they always give an apologetic gesture... but in Utah they don't care and they'll give you the rudest look and speed off.
We're planning on moving back becaue we can't stand these ignorant stupid people that can't drive for sh**.

I agree, I've lived in five states, and visited over 30, and easily Utah drivers are the worst. I think it's the magic momo underwear,'makes them feel invincible. In utah the slow traffic is on the left, and the right lane is for passing...I can't wait to get out of here!

Wow please bring the speeding drivers down here.I live in Cedar City, Utard and the drivers here post a serious hazard by driving too slow.The freeway on ramps are around 1/2 mile to 3/4 of a mile long before even getting onto the freeway. A very large percentage of the population here drive onto the actual FREEWAY after DRIVING a 1/2 mile only to enter at a blistering 35 to 45 mph.onto a freeway speed limit of 75!!!! Its truly great adrenaline seeing a 75k lb. big rig filling up my rear view mirror as I get onto the freeway.Or the poor lost sheep behind the wheel day dreaming about god knows what? refusing to move over to the next lane in order to let you in.Wow aliens do exist.

My family moved here this past December from Las Vegas, NV. I honestly thought Nevada drivers were bad. Not compared to Utah drivers!! They are the most self-righteous, egotistical, stuck-up jack ass' I have ever encountered. These people need to get off their pharmaceutical drugs, heal their over inflated egos, and their brain-dead minds!! These people need a MAJOR wake-up call!! I can't wait until we're able to get the HELL out of this state!! One does not need to leave this planet to experience 'hell', all one need do is move to UTAH!!!

Ive never lived anywhere else but here.. But I agree I always say how dumb people are here.. Just like today I was driving on I-15 and some dumbass in a SUV cuts some dude then the traffic starts backing up and he tries getting in the left shoulder so that he could pass us all.. Down here in Ogden its not so bad becuz you will usually get shot or beat up if you disrespect someone but Salt Lake is horrible and Tooele is even worse..

You need to learn the UTAH HEADLOCK. That is the only safe way to survive Utah drivers.

Probably the reason for the pissed off look was years of frustration driving in Utah. Every day, twice a day, of dealing with four lane roadblocks where everyone is driving the same speed all across the highway, having to pass even the truck drivers on the right because for some reason they are in the left 3 lanes, people who cut you off, people who were going 5 mph when you were behind them that you can't pass at 30 mph over the speed limit when trying to get around them (but if you get back in behind them they slow back down to their original speed and if you get around them they spend the rest of their trip trying to get back in front of you), people who pull out in front of you at intersections making you hit the brakes when there are 3 blocks of empty space behind you. I could go on but there you go.....

I used to live in Idaho and would make trips to Utah now and then and I must say that I agree 100%!!! I had the worst driving experiences of my life in Utah and wondered if I would make it out alive. I have a couple of theories about why they drive so terribly:

1. A lot of them are very absent-minded.
2. They honestly think that their Mormon temple undergarments will protect them.

I mean no insults by that, I'm just saying... please consider other people's lives and basic human decency when driving no matter what.

The crazy part is that their bad driving habits follow them everywhere. Have you ever been to a grocery store in Utah? In most places, people have a basic understanding that sticking to basic rules of the road tend to apply in pedestrian situations as well... stick to the right, don't tailgate people, give people their distance, don't turn your cart in front of someone.

I literally got a bruise once from someone hitting me with a cart because she turned without looking and I have gotten hit in the ankles by people scooting their cart up behind me as I was in line at the grocery store. It's insane!

It's so bad that I think that Utah should incorporate a social norms course in their schools somehow. They're so oblivious to the world.
