In my former "up North" life I was a career firefighter/Medic/NYS EMS Instructor.

This was and is a common problem all over. Part of the problem is that cars nowadays are quite soundproof. Folks play their radios loud, talk on cellphones, illegally text, etc, etc.

That happens everywhere, not just The Villages.
Irmo south carolina, close to harbison, and lexington and columbia. It was always the way.....Slower lifestyle......but still the big city....

Its a matter of respect for others, and people have really lost that value.....nowadays its all about me.....

Click on the link in my post. By the way, you are correct about Miami. Miami is my hometown. When we go down there to visit family I have to get into Miami mode driving.

That's 'cause the street signs are in English, and nobody can read them.

Where I am from in rural Michigan, cars not only pull over on the country roads for a funeral, but the drivers and passengers get out and stand in respect for the families.I guess It acknowledges the value of human life and the sorrow of a passing.
Down here I think most drivers pull over for an emergency vehicle...as much as anywhere.
Some people just don't care if something doesn't relate directly to them.

I dislike it when someone who doesn't live here makes statements about people who do.

I think a lot of us feel the same as you.
