Still think it's the narrow roads and wider vehicles.

Yeah, its pretty crazy.. I drive an 89 Civic and I really enjoy that car on the highway because I FEEL everything on the road, therefore it keeps me alert and constantly looking out for the other drivers around me.. I'm also big on paying attention to the road signs and try to stay within five miles over the speed limit.
I can't even remember when I last used my cell phone while driving. Both my wife and I have a rule that if we don't have to talk on the phone while driving, we won't, and you'll find out that most of those conversations that folks have while speeding down the freeway are pointless.
I just wait until I get home so I can give the other person on the line my full attention..

Oh well, I digress

from mbuszu: I drive within the rust-belt and I've also lived all over the country. I must concur with a lot of the other posters, I've not seen anything like this before. I do believe a bit in the "law of attraction" and perhaps you are so obsessed with this that you're noticing it happening or it is actually happening with irregular frequency to you. I have a simple solution for you... stop obsessing about it!

Ya, if you live in some place like oz, (pay no attention to that man behind that 18 wheeler, who is about to terminate you & your family.) Get real buddy! Quote me: Living in a world gone madd...

I have lived in nothern ohio all my life (51) and I have never seen anything like what is now taking place on the roadway. In the past 4 years or so, cars, trucks,suvs have been going left of center only to swing back into their lane before impact, I kid you not. This happens nearly every time I drive (is that insane or what?) The worst thing is this (IMO) is done intended. I drive a civic and I assume they don't like what I am driving. Although this has happened to me in my nissan pickup and infinity also. Its always been one of the big 3,(take your pick) that does this one trick pony. Anyway if your reading this then I am not dead yet. I need to find a much safer place to live and soon... suggestions?
I wonder if this is similar to my boyfriend's gripe with SUV drivers. They don't seem to know where their truck's right side ends, so anytime the road is empty, they center their SUV in the middle of the empty space. I think that they think they SUV is wider than it is.

So on the local roads, an SUV will be driving towards us and in the middle of the road straddling the two lanes... until he or she gets close to us and is forced to move over and stay only in their lane. Once that SUV passes us, they are floating in the center of the two lane road once again.

Most SUV drivers should not be driving a vehicle that big imo. And they also are really bad at parking too.
