Horrible drivers!

Relocated to Boca in June and I still can't believe how bad drivers are down here.
From cars trying to get across to the right turn lane from a left turn lane on a 6 lane wide road, while stopped at a traffic light, to a Dixie head in a p car flying/cutting in, doing 70 to 5 mph, to get on to 95. And this is a regular occurrence.
One thing that's been getting on my nerve is not using a signal when turning or switching lane and it's 9 out of 10 cars that don't😠

If you see a black e92 using a turn signal in Boca that would be me 100% 😕

Go a little further south to Miami. Try driving in Hialeah for a bit. Use to work out there years ago. Driving in boca is 100 times better.

There is a good reason car insurance rates are on the higher side down here.

EXACTLY. Boca is bad? Lol. Hialeah/Doral ..... OMFG. You have never experienced anything like it in America. You'll get people hauling mattresses in the left lane. People who just kind of switch lanes and expect you to not hit them.... A turn signal? Lol.... And this goes for all the truckers down there too. I rarely drive down the road in Miami and don't see a moron driving a delivery truck nearly take out a family of 4.

The reality is that there are bad drivers everywhere. I drive in Europe and they suck, but I do give them credit for using their turn signals a lot more. Drivers suck everywhere. But Miami, Hialeah..... Jesus......

Try Miami Beach during the weekend. The taxi drivers will really make you appreciate boca too.

Boca is a paradise compared no Chicago, NY or even downtown Miami or Kendall!!!! Or go to the airport area, what a nightmare!!!! Overall Sofla is not that bad. There are areas that are not only bad for driving but for everything else. Get used to a Cuban coffee (colada) every day and you will be driving ok really soon.

Boca is nice but full of people that think that they own the city, you know what I mean. People only care about what they have and what they can show off, most of them.

Where are you from? It looks like your comparing the driving to your old city.

Driving is very crazy down here. Be careful. I use my turn signals constantly but most do not.

I'm from NY and driving is much worse down here. Boca and Delray are terrible due to old snowbirds who will do just as you said and decide to cut over 4 lanes without thinkint twice. Maybe they don't care about living anymore? It's bad. Miami is bad to but that's just all illegals.

just think about everything else south fla has to offer, you'll quickly forget about the lack of turn signals.
