I feel the same way. Really, it boils down to prevailing culture here. When
I lived in California, even though CA has a sort of 'laid-back' mentality,
not uptight and pressured as they are in the east coast, when you get behind
the wheel you know you better get in, get up to speed and then get over,
signal and get outta the way, else you'll get crushed. Here, there are so
many distracted and rather uncaring drivers, that you'll always find the
pokies just ambling along, never getting MOVING.
Left lane squatters? That's my dad. Why can everyone stay in the right lane
or stay right, signal, pass and then move back to the right? It's beyond
logic, how so many drive.
