The drive back from NYC/Philly to DC is intense. Super fast, really dense traffic, windy roads. Seems to have a lot of accidents. East coast drivers tend to be more aggressive than Texans, I guess because they have to be. Traffic is bad in texas cities as well, but the drivers there seem more absent minded.

It stands to reason that the most densely populated region of the country would have the most intense traffic.

NJ, NY, CT, and the Baltimore/DC area are very aggressive for drivers. As a NY'er, my experience is you either have to be proactive or get over to the right and hang out with the semis. Nothing worse than someone from Arkansas driving 5 mph below the speed limit in the middle lane... except another one in the left lane. I join the party except for those going 25 mph over the speed limit.

Oh I definitely get over. I meant even if I'm in the right lane, the person moving into the lane is super aggressive. I guess they're working on the assumption that you won't hit them. Basically, if people want in, they're getting in or you're hitting them.
