Driving memories

I've traveled around the world twice and have had harried encounters on the coastal road of Croatia to Beltway driving in DC. But by far the worst drivers I've experienced were as a child driving with my parents up to vacation on Prince Edward's Island.

Coming from rural central NY we decided to take a scenic route through Massachusetts and then from Boston head north along the coast. Unfortunately I think everyone in Boston had the same idea. I remember staring out the window as hundreds of cars tried to vie for a place in one of the four lanes flowing through the toll-booths. The memories of innocent- looking mothers screaming obscenities out their windows still makes me laugh as I remember too, how my mother kept whispering "oh dear"

yes ..Boston, indeed.
