Kansas City's Cynthia Kocyon has noticed a lot of discourteous driving on highways in the area, particularly in construction areas where lanes are reduced or closed.
She frequently sees vehicles straddling the center line in an effort to keep other cars from passing, swerving at cars attempting to pass and other transgressions. The worst she has seen has been at the merger of southbound Interstate 29 and U.S. 169, where a major construction project is under way.
"Surely if we cooperated a little by merging smoothly and allowing other drivers to merge as well, we could all get through the congestion with a little less road rage or fewer fender benders," she writes.
You're right Cynthia, but please don't call the dog Shirley.
