    Despite being courteous "everywhere else" I also noticed last week just how rude American drivers are. They don't seem keen to let people in in traffic, and with a big vehicle often barge through lanes without leaving safe or even remotely sensible gaps!

    I find it considerably worse than some other traffic nightmare places I've driven (Rome, Paris, London etc).

    Yep. It's particularly bad when merging lanes when the lane is going away in 20 feet and everyone else is going at high speeds and no one will let you in even though they can probably see that you're about to drive on the sidewalk/grass/smash into the guardrail if you don't move over.

    I don't really pay attention to where I am walking so people usually move over for me. Sometimes I do it on purpose just because I don't like the way the other guy is walking towards me, like he owns the damn sidewalk or hallway or somethin'.

    I've noticed the people with the most dangerous cars seem to drive the least considerately. Like the big 4WDs can just flatten cars, but they often drive really pushily in traffic. I've seen one near my house crush past the windscreen when it rear ended a car and killed everyone in it. And they cause a lot of accidents by lowering visibility in traffic.

    I've noticed most people are oblivious when your walking behind I mean I was blocked from getting around someone and breathing down their neck (I wasn't trying to be the close, trust me) any ways I'm sure I could have stolen their wallet and they wouldn't have noticed. I'm always aware if someones behind me even if I have head phones 90% of the time I'll know someones their without looking.

    Me too, the feeling creeps me out, I hate it when people get that close to me physically outside.

    yes, of course I don't notice half the time exactly what people are wearing so i guess it balances out because most people are so nit picky with what someone is wearing.

    I move ... always annoys me why others don't do a 50/50 to avoid imminent collisions!

    maybe they think either we're not solid or they think they aren't solid and can pass right through people. so they keep walking.

    I kind of twist, with my shoulder in a position to intercept the person should it be required. I never expose my breastplate, as it could lead to me losing my balance. Leading with my shoulder lowers my profile so it's easier to squeeze through a tight spot, yet deliver an impact if I have to.
