Not so driven

Chris Ayres, Los Angeles correspondent for the London Times, claims that Los Angeles drivers really aren’t so bad– compared, that is, to those in legendarily overcrowded foreign cities (and war zones). He’s right, I think, and he doesn’t even mention Atlanta. Why is it then, if Los Angeles doesn’t have the world’s worst drivers, it probably has the most complained-about drivers? I think it’s because Los Angeles has more people than any other city in the world with an overwhelming sense of entitlement, whose sense of the rightness of the world is shaken with every fender bender.
