5 Things Only Utah Drivers Understand

There is an unspoken understanding between Utah drivers that only those 16 and older will ever know. We get it, we are not good, and that’s ok. We will never be great drivers, and that’s not bad. Acceptance is the first step in realizing that you have become one of us – a Utah driver. If you are unsure of whether you qualify to be among the ranks of the state’s elite not-so-pure-driving-record drivers, sneak a peak at this list. If you can relate, you’re probably a Utah driver.

Stop Signs

he stop sign is coming up. You coast until you reach a 10 foot proximity to the crimson octagon, maybe check for other cars but really just check for a police car, then cruise right on through. It is what it is.

Refusing to drive to or from Utah County because of time spent in traffic is a valid excuse

Point of the mountain. Words we all dread to hear. Whether you need to attend a wedding reception at Thanksgiving Point at the peak of rush hour or are awaiting a court sentence, the point of the mountain is a place all Utahans fear.

Air Quality

Air Quality

Regardless of our abundance of mini vans and exceptional public transit system, we still refuse to carpool or ride Trax. Salt Lake City has some of the worst air quality in the nation, but a red day doesn’t faze us. The multitude of used cars on the road isn’t helping the environment, but hey, we like to jam to the MoTab Choir in the privacy of our own Ford Focus.

The DMV

The DMV

As Brigham Young descended through the foothills of Emigration canyon and announced, “This is the place”, he probably didn’t expect us to build our own mini version of hell in the heart of the chosen valley. We’ve all experienced the monotonous DMV employee at the counter telling us that after waiting 6 hours to register our used car that we are missing one of the seven forms of identification required and that their new policy requires the blood of a virgin and the sacrifice of your first born child.

Blizzards

Blizzards

A Utah driver fears no snow. We cruise through winter storms in our used cars like it’s the first day of spring. In fact, it’s not uncommon to actually be driving through said pansy dust mid-May. Your used car’s drivetrain typically has no relevance to your winter driving confidence. A Utah driver is of the bravest, most courageous, in the nation. They will go, they will do, the things the road commands no matter the weather conditions.
