NOT ALL stereotypes are false.

There is no denying, and this has been scientifically proven, that El Paso drivers are the worst drivers in the world, next to rickshaw drivers in New Delhi or cab drivers in Juarez.

Below I have compiled a list of the most egregious sins El Paso motorists make:

1.  NO BLINKERS

If you've driven in El Paso you've seen drivers who regularly do not use their turn signals. This may be due to some El Pasoan's thinking that other drivers can read their minds. This however is incorrect

2.  ONLY BLINKERS

On the flip side if you drive around El Paso enough you will definitely come across drivers who leave their blinkers on for miles even though they have no intention of changing lanes or exiting. If you live through this long enough you eventually lose all your hair. (I know)

3.  SLOW-POKERS

If you've driven a large amount of time in any city other than El Paso prepare to be slightly frustrated with our laissez-faire attitude toward road speed.

"It's not about how fast you're going it's about the destination."

But yeah it's also how fast you're going, and we suck at it.

4.  BAD-MERGERS

El Pasoan's don't know the meaning of the word quit...  Or, merge...

5.  WRONG LANERS

There are certain unspoken rules of the road, and that is knowing which lanes you're supposed to be in depending on how fast you want to go. The left lane, the farthest left lane, is meant for passing. And I can't stress that enough. It's not meant to just sit in, especially if you're going slower than the rest of the traffic. Stop it, El Paso
