- Speed Limits- Here, going 10mph over the posted limit is considered the bare minimum for cruising speed. No one bats an eye at going 80mph in a 55mph zone, apparently everyone in CT has somewhere really important to be. This is a refreshing change from VA where speed limits had little to do with people's choice in velocity. You might be going 95mph in a school zone or 30mph in the left lane on the highway...whatever, we don't judge.
- Road Signs- CT drivers don't worry too much about these. Surely they don't mean you should turn right on red or that your lane is ending. If all else fails, just use the shoulder, the important thing is that you not let any peaky traffic rules slow you down. This is moderately preferable to VA where everyone had to being the lane they needed NOW! At least now every on ramp doesn't dissolve into the Indy500 as all the merging cars swerve through four lanes of traffic immediately upon hitting the road.
- Customer service- One of two things happens:
- You get great help, quickly and with no added chit-chat or diversions.
- You get no help at all, and that is pretty much what you expected TYVM.
- Either way, you don't have to talk to everyone and feign interest in their narcissistic "hospitality"
