Regardless of the reactions and if they're justified or not, good luck being the prez who says "Well, we've got a smoking hole in lower Manhattan, but we're not going to change a single thing. Nope, just going to keep it the way it is...."

It's just The Way It Is. I live in the Northeast (hint - Yankees Suck!), and when everyone drives like that, you get more cars through the green, and everything goes smoother. I've also lived in NC, and sometimes the third car wouldn't make it due to the inability of some people to stay on top of their driving. Obviously, these are generalizations, and there are always exceptions, but I think asshole driving = better driving. NB - Asshole driving =/= road rage, which is an special, advanced case.
