There are always those aggressive drivers that can't follow the rules and think they are more important than everyone else. Funny thing is that those same drivers wouldn't act the same way if they were pedestrians, but will be jerks while they are insulated by their vehicles. To act the same face to face might get them something real.

"the Texas Department of Transportation...can’t connect increased traffic on state Highway 3 to construction on I-45" This shows how out of touch with real drivers Tx DOT is. Because of the dangerous northbound entrance ramps at FM 518 and highway 96, especially during rush hour, I contribute to extra highway 3 traffic if personal business takes me near there before heading north. And I live on the west side. I'm sure many other drivers from both sides of I45 are doing the same thing.

I had the same thoughts.

You adding to the traffic misses the point of the article. Those that drive like morons are the issue. Traffic control barriers have been added to help deal with that faction.
