The "Nascar Effect"

For some time I have noticed a trend that seems to be getting more and more popular. For whatever reason, when I'm driving down the road everyone always pulls out in front of me ... right in front of me ... like I almost broadside them. At first, I figured my driving habits were too fast and aggressive, so I slowed down and the problem got worse. After some time I realized that whenever it happened, there was never a car behind me ... never. They just had to get in front. One day I even cracked a joke about it, "Well, it looks like he got his five bonus points for leading a lap" I said to my wife. Has society gotten so fast paced that even when we drive, psychologically speaking, there is a overwhelming need to be in front? Seriously, try it. Take a look in your mirror the next time a fellow motorist darts out in front of you ... I'll bet it's empty.
