Why are there so many stupid drivers?!

Let me paint a picture. I live in a little part of Los Angeles known as Playa Del Rey. It is right next to LAX. To get to one freeway I go South on a road that has a 55 mph limit, then East on a road with a 50 mph limit, which then rolls directly into a freeway the 105, which then has exits within 2 miles for the 405 North and South. The first road has no light from when it becomes 55 until the end of the road. This is about 2 miles. the East bound road is also about 2 miles, but has about 4 lights.

So, I am heading out to take some pictures, and decide that the 105 is the road I need. So I head South, immediately there is a Subaru Legacy sedan, and a New Chevy Malibu, the light from 35 to 55 is green, they speed up, but only to 50 and pace each other. This occurs for about a mile, so I honk, because I am pissed that these guys would purposefully go slow, and pace each other. So eventually the Malibu pulls to the left and I pass both cars, now needing to exceed the speed limit because they have both decided to speed up while I do this. Anyway, the Malibu gets back over and speeds up to ride next to me, he rolls down his window and yells (I don't know, I have manual mirrors, i am not going to roll them down). But I spread my hands to indicate 55, while he is flipping me off and yelling at me for him being the ass.
Anyway the left lane becomes 2 left turn lanes, and the right lane is a right turn only. So they get in line on the left lane, while I take the middle. The cars on the left are a bit slower, so I move my way through traffic keeping to the 50mph speed limit. Now the road begins to widen for the freeway, and both the Legacy and the Malibu speed pass me. the Malibu then pulls in front of me. I am not too concerened, as there are three more lanes coming up on the left, and the right lanes are starting to merge together. (love LA freeways ) So the lanes open up and I again pull left, the Malibu shadows me (keep in mind he is in front). So I realize this guy has some anger issues, so I continue to try and get over, and hit my cruising speed. After a mile or so, he begins to pull right. I realize he may need to take the freeway interchange. So I begin to speed up, and again he pulls in front of me. Waving his fists, and still flipping me off. Since this was a Sunday afternoon, and there was little traffic I decide I don't want to deal with this guy for my entire drive. So I begin to merge right. He does the same, and begins to brake. I pull all the way over to the 405 interchange. Again he is braking. At the very last moment I immediately pull to the left and continue on the 105, where he is now committed to the 405. His choices are now North or South, and to fix his issue will take at least a 4 mile round trip if he wanted to continue on the 105.

So why do these drivers have to be so stupid. I almost felt like trying to get fake a lane change and pull forward to see if he would hit me. But I feel what I ended up doing was probably the safest thing I could possibly do. keep in mind that was about 8 miles of dealing with a driver that is probably driving a new car because he is filled with rage. Deep down I hope he wrecks his car with all his rage.

So theres my story. I hate stupid drivers.
