I know in AZ we have the same problem with all the blue hairs that FL has. More than half of them have no business driving at all but they won't stop and don't seem to care that they kill entire families will young kids sometimes.

Something serious needs to happen about this but probably won't until some politicians wife and kids are killed by some old person who shouldn't be driving. They just don't have the eyesight or motor skills to do it any longer. Some do and they can easily pass a quick driving test but many don't. Road rage happens all the time because of them too.

Although I despise left land bandits, this is the very reason I hang to the left especially in heavy and/or urban traffic on a multilane. Too often, I have seen a cager pull the classic, "oh sh1t, that's my exit" maneuver.
