Just got back from trip to cedar point, and noticed a couple things about driving in the states. It's been a while since I've been down for any length of time, but I'm always amazed at how people drive down there. Barring some stupid construction decisions (like having the a road closure on the detour around a road closure), it seemed to be a better experience than driving up here. The biggest things I noticed: -American drivers know what a passing lane is, and how not to block it. Driving anywhere on the 401, there are always people sitting in the left lane blocking traffic, people passing on the right etc. -American drivers know what a speed limit is, and tend to respect it. Other than having to try to see the little mph numbers on the inside of the spedometer, I noticed that on most of the highways traffic ran at just about the speed limit (maybe around 70 on a 65 mph road). Back home though, there's regularly people driving at 120+ (with a 100 km/h limit), some MUCH higher than that. Any idea why this might be? Are US cops harsher than Canadian ones?
