Agreed. Americans are increasingly cruisers in oversized truck-like
land barges not interested in driving. Blocking behavior in the left
(formerly "fast") lane is epidemic. I'm driving to Arizona next week
and will stay off the interstates and on the less traveled 2-lanes
through less populated areas as much as possible. Of course the dearth
of over-the-road truckers is using this same tactic increasingly as
well. Still, I hope to enjoy some driving through the Colorado Rockies
and sight seeing - Grand Canyon, etc. on my way to Tempe for a
conference. Cheers and happy and safe motoring to my fellow S4 fans.

I have to say, driving most anywhere in Europe (save Greece) is a blast.
In general, people are a lot more curteous. People actually get in the
"passing lane"/fast lane, only to pass, and then move asside so anyone
going faster can over take them.
Here in the US, it seems as if people think driving in the fast lane is
where the slow cars should be. Sadly, I find myself in the "slow lane"
(right lane) passing up lines of traffic!
