It's called ''hurry up and wait syndrome''. These same people also tend to road rage.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

I don't get road rage but I do tend to drive fast.. I guess the difference is I don't usually have any traffic to deal with haha

I don't typically speed, I have a clear driving record, and the cheapest insurance rates because of it! My daughter (and grand kids,boy 3 months/girl terrible 2's) live 3 hours away, all interstate, and I drive there 2-3 times a month. Other than that, I live and work in the same small town, nestled in rolling fields of endless 12' corn stalks!
