If you've ever hit the road in Alberta before, you've probably noticed a few things that stand out. Whether you're visiting the province or you've lived here for years, everyone can agree that driving in Alberta is, well, unique. From the volatile weather creating unpredictable road conditions to the characters you can expect to see on the road, these Alberta driving memes sum up the experience in a humorously tragic way.

The second you roll into Alberta, you'll notice a few key things. Firstly, everyone has trucks, there are trucks everywhere you look, and many of said trucks are lifted and somehow upgraded.

What you'll also spot is a lot of towing. People tow their boats, snowmobiles, quads, trailers, other vehicles, and the list goes on. Beyond the types of vehicles you'll see on the road, you'll also begin to recognize some driving trends.

For example, Albertans are known for tail gaiting, for making bold driving moves, for parking like they don't give a care, and other such behaviours you adopt in a province where the weather and road construction encourage you to get a little creative.

With both Calgary and Edmonton developing their own brands of Alberta drivers and mother nature slapping the two cities with horrific driving conditions during the winter, you can only imagine the memes that have emerged over the years.

We've rounded up a few for your viewing pleasure.
