Side Roads in the City of Poughkeepsie

Personally, I spend a lot of time driving in the City of Poughkeepsie and almost every time I have to venture off the arterial (44/55) and go up or down any of the side streets within the city I always come across some of the worst drivers anywhere. Oftentimes times I feel like some of the drivers within the city forget that there are other drivers sharing the road with them. I was crossing from one side of the arterial to the other last week on Academy Street and in the course of less than one mile I was cut off twice and had one car just stop in the road and let someone out.

They didn't just stop and let them out, they WAITED for them to come back. I couldn't go around because another car was blocking the other was CRAZY! I didn't make a fuss when it happened because I wasn't sure what could happen if I did so I just sat there and waited, for like 3 minutes...LOL!
