I'm assuming you're in a fairly big city. I don't see much problem in the less populated areas. If you do a search on "Rude drivers us cities" or something like that, you'll find that Miami consistently ranks high or at the top of cities with rude drivers.

Is this happening in other areas, or is this just a local phenomenon in my area?
It happens, and I agree that it is occurring more frequently these days. I drive about 100 miles in my commute every day, and I am floored at what people do to save themselves an extra minute or two.

This is becoming very frequent in my area as well. I am also finding a fairly steady increase of drivers who blatantly attempt to go out of their way in terms of direction and speed to hit innocent pedestrians

Anyone in WA and drive in Bellevue? Every freaking day. It's annoying. I'm considering buying a truck and slapping an ARM bumper on it. Vroom Vroom. Sorry about your Mercedes.

You would notice the stupidity even more if you drove a motorcycle. Each and every little mistake morons on the road make can easily kill you. I can't count how many times some retard on a cellphone has almost nailed me. Even not on the cellphone, people don't pay a whole lot of attention. I chalk it up to the fact that people feel really safe, with the 23487294782389 airbags and whatnot they have in their cars.
If my tank of a surburban tangled with a new car, The new car would be toast, my tank would have a tiny ding in the bumper

In case anybody was wondering, I always go first, cuz I know the others will wait for someone to tell them what to do and if I wave them on they will just get confused. I tried for like 10 years until I decided that I can not help them, so I shall lead by example.
