Paris Drivers: Crazy or Creative?
Ask a Parisian driver about their and they’ll tell you, with great spirit that their form of driving is creative. They express their individuality as the circle around their famous landmarks. Some Parisians I know said that driving in the US is too limiting, frustrating and annoying. Staying within the lines stifles their creativity.
Now as I travel I’ll take a new look at the driving habits and wonder what it tells me about the place the people. Maybe it isn’t that they are “wild and crazy”. Maybe something else is going on. People tell us about their ideas, their way of seeing the world by how they talk, dress and now we know even by how they drive!
