How to Drive Chicago: Fight the Urge

2. Drive. When you’re the first car stopped at a red light and another car pulls adjacent to you on the right do not accelerate abnormally just to keep them from getting in front of you. That person is in a rush, or just likes to drive excessively fast. They are going to speed right past you. Let them go. They’re not going to affect your travel time at all. Fight your instinct to not let them in and turn it into a race. Think rationally about it. Let them get out of your way and enjoy your day.
