In the car, i pretty much have to roll down the windows cause of the pressure, i wouldn't want to become deaf! If it's too hot, i just turn on the a/c for a cool draft, screw rolling up the windows! I'm gonna miss all that bass in the pickup.

For the two weeks or so of spring and the two weeks of autumn I love tooling around with the windows down, stereo up (although it just died and ate one of my favourite CD's. Again).

Shame it's too damn hot/humid in the summer and too wet/cold in the winter, so there aren't too many days for the best sort of driving.

Thank you lol I love a good bass system, not my thing but still fun when I'm driving a car with one, and I never drive through neighborhoods with it up cuz I hate it too

Agreed! Especially now that I have tinted windows any excuse to roll the windows down and look at peoples crazy expressions.... just started that this week. Only time the windows are up when it's nice out is if traffic sucks so bad I can't get a good breeze....

Lol Seattle is still some of the worst in the States. Montana's idea of a traffic jam is a herd of cattle or elk standing on the roadway. Or the drunks at 2 am crossing the street from the bars lol

I read a study that said Seattle was the worst in the nation... I know it's all relative to how they judge this but according to this study it was judged by the amount of your commute spent going more than a certain percentage below the speed limit. I've never been in any city during rush hour except Seattle, Portland, Spokane, and Minneapolis so of that group Seattle is definitely the worst (Portland sucks balls though) but I can't compare it to California cities.
