Things I have noticed when driving in Knoxville/Tennessee:
1. When stopped and waiting to turn, many people do not turn on their turn signal until just before they actually turn. That is, if you're three cars back at a light, waiting to turn left, you won't actually turn on your left turn signal until you are just about pulling through the intersection. I have never seen this anywhere else but Knoxville and I have to admit, I find myself doing it too every now and then.
2. Slowing down to go through a green light. It's so annoying! On more than one occasion I have missed a green light because the cars in front of me insist on slowing down to BELOW the speed limit before going through the light. What's the deal? Once again, I have only seen this done by so many people in Knoxville.
3. Walking out in front of moving cars. Now I have seen this other places, but here it seems a lot worse. Mainly because people do not seem to be in a hurry at all while crossing streets at a place that is not a crosswalk. They do not care if there is a lot of traffic, they just stroll on out. People also do this at night. While wearing dark clothing. In poorly lit areas. Do they WANT to be hit by a car??
4. Now for something I WISH they'd do in Tennessee, but do not. In Texas, when you're driving on a country two lane road with wide shoulders and you know the person behind you wants to pass you but cannot because there is opposing traffic or it's a no passing zone, you pull off onto the shoulder and let them pass. This is something that seems unique to Texas as I have never experienced it elsewhere. I really think Tennessee drivers need to pick up on this because I greatly dislike driving behind people going under the speed limit on many of the roads I have to drive on for work. It's very frustrating not being able to pass them because the roads are so twisty-turning and full of hills.
