They give more tickets now for using handheld devices in Maui than any other traffic offense. It's not just cells, looking for music in your IPod, playing video games, watching TV on your tablet all have been ticketed here.

I know the right will deny this--but in California the decline of driving ability is due to two things that stem from the efforts of Howard Jarvis (proposition 13). First, there is no longer driver's education as part of high school curriculum. My daughters got much poorer instruction from private firms than I got when I was 16.

Second, the constant cut backs in local government funding means fewer cops--the largest expense in most local governments. It means that people run stop signs and yak on their cell phones with impunity. Libertarians have assured that people have the liberty to kill school kids because of inattention. Not an exaggerations, happened to one of our school kids.

Once, I decided to visit Russia on my car, which I had bought on this site http://buysellsearch.com/vehicles/cars Oh, it was really terribly. One idiot on the road make a big accident! My car was also affected. Yes, I know, my car wasn`t very expensive, since it was used, but it was really good vehicle and I can even say that I loved it. Is it strange to fall in love with car? Maybe yes. But who cares?

Driving in the Bay Area and apparently Boston is sort of an aggressive sport for many, 80 mph everywhere bumper to bumper, never use the blinkers or someone will try to speed up to the spot you are trying to turn to so as to cut you off, random drivers teaming up to road rage someone driving too slow etc.. I think heavy traffic may be taking care of this now.
People from all over the world jammed into one area proving you cannot go from ox cart to automobile in one generation.
Hawaii is bad in a different way, tourists lost, looking at things, getting directions from someone in the back seat, I hang way back as so often they will suddenly do something completely unanticipated.

South Florida is easily as bad as Boston. My least favorite stretch is I-95 Through Providence RI. Talk a combat driving!!!
