I have not been driving much since the start of Covid. When I do I am amazed. There are way more aggressive drivers and speeds have increased. Today roads were slick with a heavy rainstorm and the traffic was moving about 70 mph in a 55 zone.

Got my DL in '58. One thing I've noticed in all these years is a lack of motor vehicle code enforcement in towns and big cities compared to number of LEO's/miles of roads back in the '50s/60s . Lot more highways and lot more drivers on the roads driving like they want. Let er' rip.
Also back then fines would dent the ol' pocket book unlike today.

I usta drive commercial trucks...

And now besides my mobile shelter moto camp appliance (aka RV rig) I rides motorsickles...

So traffic doesn't bother so much...

But I did have an unexpected incident a week 10 days ago when I had to slow down the combine I was piloting cutting wheat to let a bull moose have right of way across my path.

I live on LI, NY so to go anywhere you have to deal with it. Once I'm done with the Long Island and Cross Bronx Expressways everything else is a piece of cake.

It's always a fun time when the other driver on an entrance ramp doesn't remember what YIELD means!! Esp when there is an 18 wheeler or double along side you!! Pretty regular occurrence even out here in the "wide open wild west"!!!!!

I think a lot of it now is that they have figured out that there is much less enforcement going on. Between mass LEO retirements and the reluctance for much contact it's the wild wild west out there again.
