I took note of a few rude "regulars" on the bridge today, and I asked myself:
Why do some people feel the need to speed up and refuse to let those "merging" get into the lane? It isn't as if the mergers have any other choice - their lane is ending and they must merge. Let them merge, for God's sake! I'm not sure what this bad behavior is all about.
Why do some people, who are driving behind you, feel the need to speed up and pass you -- when the traffic is pretty much stop and go? So they speed up, cut in front of you -- placing themselves just one car in front of you, and then they have to stop, because the traffic is still stop and go. Hey buddy! I can see you behind me, and I can see you pass me, and I can see you when you are now driving right in front of me for the rest of the trip across the bridge. Somehow it was VERY important to this type of driver that they get one car ahead of YOUR car...why is this? I'm pretty sure it is because they do not think you being on time is as important to them being on time -- they think they are more important than any other driver trying to get to work. These types of drivers are pretty self-centered. Or more simply put, A-holes.
And lastly, why do some people refuse to put their blinker on when they clearly want to switch lanes?
Do you have any insight into these behaviors?

because most days look this gray way when I'm on the bridge..
