As I ‘mature,’ I admit I probably drive a little less aggressively, and I don’t drive at night unless I need to. I guess that naturally happens when you are in the third chapter of the three chapter book of life. 🙂
Two days of driving interstate from South Carolina to New Hampshire was enough long-distance driving for me for a while.
However, after I got home I was astounded at how aggressive some folks drive in town. Twice in the same day, I found myself in the merge lane waiting for the closest lane to clear. Both times, a vehicle (a pickup and a FedEx truck) that were behind me just went between me and the car in the right hand lane and sped up to pull in front of the other car.
I’ve given this considerable thought and even discussed it with a younger driver to see if things have changed that much, but it appears driving rules haven’t changed but driver patience has. I guess driving 20 mph over the speed limit on the interstate isn’t enough these days, you also have to do that on the entrance ramps as well.
Are you seeing more aggressive drivers in your area? Or, feel free to tell me I’m showing my age, I won’t take offense. 🙂
