As Soon As The Weather Gets Nicer People Drive Like Idiots

Today was a legitimately nice day in the Northland.  Temperatures hit the 70s and it felt just nice.  The sun was out, I was driving back from an appointment in Carlton, when I nearly was taken off the road by a car that cut into my lane on I 35.  I shrugged it off, kept my cool and kept going.   Just minutes later another car passed me going close to 90 and "shot the gap" in between me and a semi.  What the heck was going on?!  It happens every year at this time.   Nicer weather and people drive like idiots.
