I agree with rep points being a native of the Burgh, and just visting the LA area for two weeks, screw that traffic in LA its second worst in the country, at least where ive seen and been.

If the Pittsburgh city officals operate even close to the way they do in the town I live in, nothing will be done until someone dies.

I come back to Pittsburgh quite often to visit family/friends, Steeler games and for myself I hate driving in the downtown area.
Too many antiquated roads that are poorly marked and drivers who simply just don't pay attention.

Driving in Pittsburgh is a totally different animal.

Being born and raised here, I can agree with that completely. I've driven in many other cities in this country and across seas, this city is a mess when trying to get around. While I'm now used to it for the most part, it's still crazy and I can't imagine putting myself in the place of an out-of-towner while visiting. I'm not stating it's the worst place to drive, but it is bad.

As bad as Pittsburgh is, I've driven in much worse.

Tucson is filled with some terrible drivers.

It's not mandatory to make a quick left after the light goes yellow to red? How in the hell are you going to get anywhere in Pittsburgh without that move in the playbook.

After moving to California they made me learn that stop signs with a white perimeter stripe were optional. If you didn't observe this "rule" (especially in Santa Monica) then two outcomes were likely. One. You'll get rear-ended by the vehicle behind you. Two. You'll replace your brakes weekly.

Pittsburgh Left. California Stop. Hines to ARE...touchdown. It's a jungle out there.

PA politics and PGH roads have all too much in common.

I think they need to toughen some of the traffic laws. Like failure to obey signs. Raise those fines by like say oh $50 or more.
