To me the biggest difference was that everyone in the midwest town appeared to be moving at one-third to one-half normal speed. Four-way stop signs were absolutely comical.
s) but at least people here move at the normal speed again.
I get a big kick out of listening to the big city radio. They actually have to come on in the morning and afternoon and tell where people driving their cars bashed into each other. Some days there may be 5 or 6 of these at once. After that, they tell how slow moving the cars are going on all the big highways. That's probably why once they get out to my rural area, they are all driving 90mph and bashing into and killing each other. The big interstate is 7 miles from my little backwards slow town and all our emergency service gets done is going out to the big highway, cutting people out of their vehicles, and taking them to the hospital or the morgue.
