    LOL, so do I. It was one of my pet peeves when I moved here 17yrs ago, why don't people use their turn signals. It's quite annoying, trying to guess at an intersection where people are going.

    I'm the only one who uses my turn signal here.

    I've lived in NoVA on the I-95 corridor to DC. I've also worked in King of Prussia, PA (Philadelphia area). Both of those areas are far worse than this area!

    These drivers here are some of the worst in the country. Always tailgating, taking ridiculous and unnecessary risks and speeding. Does anyone have any common sense around here?

    It's a good thing I don't have strict hours at the office. It was a perfect storm of accidents as well. There was one on 55 Bypass, and another on I-40 East. What sucks about coming out of Holly Springs is once you get on 55, you're past the point of no return. You're committed to stay on until US-1, or at least Lufkin Road, so you can get over to Ten-Ten and hope the accident on US-1 is before Ten Ten.

    It certainly caused cascading delays all over southwestern Wake. NC 55 was backed up from people being backed up trying to get on US1, etc. Made for a long commute, but hopefully everyone involved in the wreck is okay.

    I hope everyone is alright!
