Patience vs. School Starting

Did school start today in the Bay Area of California or am I just losing my ability to be patient?

I found myself during the commute today driving with aggression that I just haven't done in a while.

I had to "work" my way thru a herd of slow moving vehicles this morning. All four lanes of Capital Expressway clogged up with cars that was simply slow moving, touching their brakes, slowing down prior to an intersection even though the light was green, etc...

Same sort of behavior coming home.

Is there a different set of folks that all of sudden start driving when school starts?

Is it due to there being more cars on the road that causes people still slow down significantly?

I can understand being more careful, but there is no need to have 3 to 4 car lengths in front of you and anticipating the light possibly changing. Rant over, though it is fun to drive the Civic with its manual transmission on a day like today. Makes me feel like Parnelli Jones.

Yes, lots of schools started today... should be bad all week, and start to get better next week... let me know if you find that too.

And very brave to change bed sides, I don't think I could do it!
