Now before you say “Shawn we already know that Jersey Shore drivers have no patience” let’s take a look at my little investigation that I conducted to see how motorists here at the Shore responded.

First thing I wanted to see is just how long it would take before drivers would be impatient. Just a simple test that kinda happened by mistake. I was at a stop light and I was checking directions on my gps, while fully stopped, but I let the light change for about 5 seconds and then I heard the roadway symphony lol not one but two or three horns blew to remind me it was time to go!

I thought to myself that 5 seconds was quick but not surprising, but would drivers let me know in less than 5 seconds? Well first let me apologize if you were behind me during my experiment, but it’s all for research lol

Next time I tested the theory it was quick. It must have been 2 seconds and the symphony started once again! Yup in the time it took to blink your eyes, I was reminded by Jersey Shore drivers I was slowing them down and either “move it or loss it” lol

So as we have found out, YES Jersey Shore drivers are impatient! No surprise lol but I wasn’t done! I had another idea to add to the experiment. I wanted to see if drivers would have the same attitude if the vehicle was a bit more intimidating than my Buick lol

I took a spin with a friend in their truck, which is large and raised and usually covered in mud lol We got to a busy intersection and we were ready to test the truck. Interestingly enough it took almost 10 seconds before finally a single horn blew! So yes folks have a bit more patience when dealing with more intimidating vehicles lol so I guess “size does matter” lol
