A television commentator reported not long ago on heavy congestion on a major freeway. He indicated that drivers these days are becoming frustrated because they can't drive as fast as they want to or change lanes easily. There are increasing instances of violence on the highways, with people using their vehicles as instruments of destruction, ramming them into other cars.
