Traffic Politeness

While Seattle has a reputation of having horrible drivers, we also have many polite drivers.  Often at intersections, I find that people are TOO polite.  Traffic would move more smoothly if people just obeyed the rules.  Guess this is true in Portland too, based upon Portlandia.  Actually, much in that show hits home sometimes about Seattle.

Of course we also have people that seem to ignore the rules and go whenever they want (like the Yugo).  Some of them are bicyclists and pedestrians.  I guess that they just depend on drivers' politeness to keep them safe.  Seems stupid to me, because it only takes one driver who is not polite or not paying attention, and you are in the hospital.
