Regarding your May 12 Road Worrier column "How transplants abide feisty drivers": Excuse me?
Guess how the population doubled over the last 25 years? That's right, transplants. Guess who's driving on North Carolina highways? That's right, transplants.
This 52-year-old native didn't get really mad on the road until 1996-1997. Guess why. Aggressive driving. During the late '80s and early '90s, Raleigh went crazy on the roads. We were considered Sunday drivers back in the late '60s and early '70s.
Transplants taught us natives how to drive aggressively. Before transplants judge, I highly suggest they find out where these aggressive drivers originated first. I just think it's coincidental that we used to drive slow as a seven-year-itch until they all came down.
