I have heard horror stories of Massachusetts (and especially Boston) traffic.
I hope our Brucey stays safe, he already used one of his 9 lives... :|


In my experience driving habits are indeed local. Southern France is hell, if you leave enough space in front of you the asshole behind you will immediately try to overtake to insert himself.

And people aren't aware of these habits. But they can learn – I had a chat with a friend who tended to drive too near to the preceding vehicle, explaining reaction times, distance/speed relations and the fact that you won't be home sooner, and it clicked.
