Lots of things befuddle Minnesota drivers. Including having your lights on at night and when its raining. If you are befuddled by such simple concepts you should relearn how to drive. My job has me driving 70% a month world wide. MN is by far the worst.

Yeah, but have you ever noticed that the higher end the vehicle, the more the driver thinks they're entitled to just ignore any traffic law they don't like?

Worst drivers ever...anyone who drives a mini-van, or an Audi, and people who drive Toyota Prius.

I see it every day on 394 - even a state patrol squad!

When the schools quit teaching drivers education, all the little things that the training taught went away. Most people on the road have never increased their knowledge of driving since their drivers test at age 15. If you don't keep up on the rules, you will never know. California makes drivers retake the exam every couple of years. Not here, you are good to drive?

DNR continues to make stupid decisions. Remember the Lane Monitoring system that cost the taxpayers over $1M per entrance ramp, and now are largely not used. Or the decisions 15 years ago to not manage the 169/494 interchange while spending an enormous amount of taxpayer money, and then in 2010 decide to spend an additional zillion dollars to correct their earlier rotten decision. There seems to be a total lack of intelligence with the DNR.

If I had a nickel for every time some a$$ swerves across the double to pass and then cuts back in I'd have almost $20.

"Anyone in an Audi"...I would say "Anyone in a Dodge Ram or Ford F-150/250/350".

This is why written & driving tests should be required at 21, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, etc. don't pass? License expires in 30 days. Too many bad habits and forgetfulness develops after turning 16
