A few words on Arizona traffic in the winter…

It’s not the snowbirds.

It isn’t.

I know Arizona “natives” would very much like to think the cause of traffic problems in the major cities is the cause of out-of-staters and snowbirds.

But after dealing with Phoenix (area) traffic, it seems to me that the only drivers doing consistently dangerous things – 20+ over, U-turns from outside lanes (on interstates, no less), abrupt lane changes, abrupt stops for no discernible reason, no speed control, wandering across center lines, tailgating when there are several over lanes with which to pass – every one of them had Arizona plates.
