This is not a typo: In praise of Dallas drivers

This morning sometime between 9 and 10, on Northwest Highway somewhere between Preston and North Central Expressway, all of the traffic lights were out.

Instead of the bedlam that one would assume would ensue, I was blown away by how courteously and responsibly drivers behaved. It was amazing. Everyone stopped at the lights regardless. Checked the other traffic. And then took turns, safely proceeding through the intersections.

Even at North Park All of the truly ravenous shoppers must have been up at Ikea. And all the teenagers on their cell phones were back in school. This will probably never happen again, but I thought it was worth congratulations to ourselves.

    i agree…i’ve experienced much worse driving (having lived in nyc and cali and europe and south asia) than here in dallas…people drive in a sane, safe manner here compared to other urban centers.
