Drive I-95 and 495 Washington DC Beltway to and from work daily. I know George Carlin joked about traffic. Seinfeld on Comedians in Cars getting Coffee may be right. People have always been a-holes, the better vehicles just let them express it more. I am nearing retirement and probably just sound like some old guy yelling at the clouds but in the last few years People have gone off the rails. A few examples. People doing over 80 in the right lane or CD lanes not the left lane for faster traffic. Even around curves in the dark and rain where they can not see and other cars are coming on the roads from the exits. How about the ever popular Racing up to cut other people off in between car spaces that are not large enough oh but they sometimes signal from behind that they are going to do this. Got hit from behind in 2014 by someone doing this, spun through 3 lanes of traffic into the fast lane Jersey wall, car totaled and hit the wall on all sides. Now life long neck, shoulder, knee problems and pain. Could write about this forever. Please add and if anyone has any ideas to make it better ?? People pinballing through traffic only to end up at the same light/exit. People driving up the shoulders to pass. I remember the graphic stuff we were shown in drivers ed. Guess that is no longer done.
