This is a plan by the "secret government of PA" to reduce the population of the state through attrition. By cutting Driver's Education Classes from the curriculum and no "on road" program AT ALL, the state has assured that every new crop of drivers is WORSE than the last one.

To prove my point Penn-DOT did a poll of drivers under the age of 25 and found that 28% thought that STOP signs with white borders were optional.

Apparently there was a viral email that was floating around in the ether that stated that the above was true. Even though all the manuals and common sense would dictate otherwise (have you ever seen a stop sign without a white border?) this keeps showing up.

That should be enforced in Ontario.

I have always found American drivers more polite and careful.
If the 2 vehicles are trucks, the space between them can be less than the 12 feet you mention.

One thing I've noticed is that some drivers on the 401 have a spotter like the NASCAR drivers have. How else do you explain going from the slow lane (cutting in front of a tractor trailer in the middle lane) into a "hole" between the faster moving vehicles in the LH passing lane. How do they know the hole is there when the tractor trailer is blocking the view of the overtaking vehicles?
