    PSA for snow birds.

    I've used my horn 3 times this week. I know for a fact 2 were elderly drivers, and one had an Alberta license plate. One of the elderly drivers ran a red left turn arrow in an F-250 towing a ~20' long (empty) trailer.

    Please consider that some year round Phoenix residents enjoy being alive, and injury free.
    You drive worse than teenagers.

Why would anybody give that up to come to AZ?

    I mean, medical care isn't free, far from it. They actually expect you to pay for it.

    Guns? Constitutional carry and all that. I bet most northern "intellectuals" would have a conniption if they found out that it's not only quick and easy to buy a gun in AZ, you can actually carry it too, and without permission from Big Brother.

    Sheriff Joe? He's probably up there with George Bush and Adolph Hitler for the amount of effigies burned. Enforcing the laws is racist and makes you a horrible person, don'tchaknow?

    So really, why do people leave paradise in the western world and come to a place with expensive medical care, a bunch of rednecks with guns, and a Sheriff that hates minorities? The news didn't deceive me all these years, right?

    yep not only that but with school classes going on....traffic gets congested. Everytime I leave from work, there is a snowbird driving in the left lane down scottsdale road going less than the speed limit. Its ridiculous

    It's good for the economy.. I played a round of Golf this afternoon and the majority of the people I encountered spoke with a German accent.

    You guys are not alone. Florida is overrun with them at this time of year. They seem nice enough , but I drive a lot during the day, and they are a menace. Mostly Ontario plates here.

    Do I count as a snowbird if I only ride down there in the winter? My car has an AZ plate but its a 96 outback full of dudes in flannel shirts and un-leashed dogs.

    At least three times a week there's a head on collision, that won't be my fault, if I want it. That's w/o the blue-hairs.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Doubt your PSA will be seen by the right crowd...think this more of I wanna vent than a PSA
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    You win.

    What do you win?

    Sunlight in the winter time.

    There's a reason they are called "snowbirds". A good number of em migrate between Prescott and the Valley, so when they aren't down there, they're up in P-town, trying to ram through the new barriers on highway 69. You get used to it. I have to wonder though, when you get real old and drive, is it like driving drunk? Is that how it feels?

    Ha! The last of the summer folks rolled out about a month ago. Now it's time for people who think they can drive in the snow - when its the first time they've ever seen it. Whatever, life in a tourist state.

    I wonder this myself. I can't stand senior citizen drivers that get on the highway and drive below the speed limit. One of the biggest annoyances in my universe.
