Rainy Day Drivers


When you live in Sunny Southern California for long enough, you start to notice a funny thing happens when it rains: everyone (and I mean everyone) talks about how other people on the road are terrible drivers in the rain.

This raises a few questions.

First, if we’re all talking about how bad everyone else on the road is, aren’t we a part of that “everyone else” to somebody else? There’s a pointless logic puzzle for you to toy with.

Second, are we sure we aren’t judging the quality of other’s driving based just on the nature of traffic? I would argue that someone who is a good driver in the rain will take things just a bit slower, which might make traffic just a bit more traffic-y than usual; but should we really be casting this blame on the driver to your right and your left? Or is this just the nature of how traffic in inclement weather works?

I’m not going to make any claims about whether Southern California residents really are or are not skilled or poor drivers in the rain.

But if we live in a world where the standard is to stand around with our arms crossed, talking about how bad of a driver everyone else on the road is, are you or I ever going to become a better driver?
