I was born and raised in NY, and that is where I learned to drive. Us New York drivers can be aggressive, possibly even cut throat. And yes, I tend to follow the stop signs are optional after 9pm "rule." (I may have made that rule of the road up but as long as a cop is not around, it works.) But, I do have some helpful hints for you AZ drivers that are actually legal and not made up.
Speed: Every road has a speed limit sign posted on it. Follow that number. Our cars are no longer being pulled from place to place by horses, and there's this neat little thing on the floor of the drivers side called a gas pedal. It's pretty easy to use, just apply pressure to it with your right foot. You can easily use this method of driving, or you can stop being lazy and just walk places. Since you're driving at the speed of a Sunday stroll anyway, You'll probably get there in the same amount of time (and get some exercise!)
Blinkers: These are nifty because they let the driver behind you know when you are about to turn or merge into another lane. They also let a driver that's waiting to turn onto the main road from a side street know that they have the go ahead to pull onto that road. It is imperative that you use this blinker light wisely. Generally, You do not need to have the blinker on if you are not planning on turning off the road for another 5 more miles. And, I don't take kindly to you shaking your fist at me when I pull into the main road in front you because you have your blinker on but you actually had no intention of turning. I should be shaking my fist at you, old lady.
Another thing to remember is that here, in america, we drive on the right hand side of the road. Now, if you are driving at me head on, yes, I will pull off to the side of the road and let you pass but not all drivers will do this.
