I live in Boston so I'm used to all the raging. (I'm also a bicyclist, so I'm REALLY used to being abused by motorists.)

Anyhow, I visited Seattle last year, and it was like a parallel universe. I noticed right away that people drive more slowly, actually give each other room, and let people in who are trying to merge, turn, etc. It was so strange to me. It's like how I always wished everyone would drive!

When Geeta Iyengar, daughter of yoga sage BKS and a yoga master in her own right, came to the US for the first time she was asked what surprised her most about the United States. She said "People drive in lanes". I've always thought Boston had the craziest drivers in the US, but they're downright mellow compared to Indian cities.

Here in Portland we call Seattle "Los Angeles with rain" because of the traffic, but I guess it's a matter of perspective.

By the way, seemingly no coorelation between road rage and the Creativity Index.
