Driving in Houston
There’s no delicate way to put it: driving in Houston is dangerous. On the freeways, slower traffic does not keep to the right and fast drivers weave from lane to lane. At traffic signals, green does mean “go” in Houston, but cautious locals have learned to wait a beat or two to avoid being blindsided by red light-runners. You can turn right on red, but in Houston few seem to know that you must first come to a full stop. And, as Edward Albee often inquired after settling in as playwright-in-residence at the University of Houston, “When did Houston make it a crime for drivers to give turn signals?” So: proceed with caution.
