Driver Ed Anyone?


Driving in Cheyenne is really odd. There's a lot about it I don't like, but I just think it's my resistance to the newness of it. It's probably like moving from New England to England language wise—if you knew nothing about the differing English slang other than the fact that the English slang would be different than the New England slang. Annoying but not something that's insurmountable.


No one uses turn signals. They have a left hand lane but instead of having a light that regulates when you go or a green with a yield for traffic sign they've got these weird blinking yellow lights that basically mean go whenever you can. Sometimes they'll turn green and sometimes they never do that.


Did I mention that you can see forever so sometimes I have a tricky time judging when to signal. I mean I can see where I'm going for a long time and it always seems closer than it is. Of course that particular problem is entirely mine, but it will be a bit before I can drive well.
