I have heard that MA was like that! Some places on or near the East coast, you don't even have time to put your foot on the gas before someone is honking away. If any of you are from the East coast, are you like that? Is it cultural? I have always wondered that. I did live on the East coast for three years but hardly drove. The DC transportation subway system was the best!
i don't think it's an east coast thing, i think it really is a mass thing. we don't call them massholes for nothing! you have to be an aggressive driver in and around boston, then they come up here to vacation and they continue to drive like jerks.
as for rude people, the biggest problem in my area are the tourists from a certain canadian province. i know not everyone from there is like that and i don't mean to offend anyone!
