The 6 Types Of Jerks You Find On Lubbock Roads
I guess I can't write enough about driving in Lubbock.
Each day driving in the Hub City is an adventure. On Lubbock roads, every day is "anything can happen day". When you least expect something, expect it. With that in mind, here's a selection of some of the less than desirable drivers we deal with on the daily.
This is the overly-aggressive driver, zig-zagging through traffic, merging really close, and never really seeming to get ahead, despite making move after move.
Well, we certainly have a lot of these in Lubbock. They're just not in a hurry to get anywhere. It would be okay, but a recent study has shown that people who are going too slow cause more accidents than speeders.

I have said it time and time again, expect anything on Lubbock roads. If don't think someone will turn around on a one way and start heading back right at you, they will. People do the craziest things, especially on Lubbock roads.
