Since I inaugurated this thread, maybe I should emphasize that I was
referring to Southern California drivers, not Northern (=San Francisco Bay
Area) ones. I think the north is less friendly.

There is, of course, some difference and some antagonism between north and
south in California. (ignoring for the moment the complication that true
north is that vast area north of San Francisco) There's even a vocabulary
difference, one we've discussed before: freeways in the south use "the"
before a number, as in "the 405" or "the 5," while in the north as in most of
the rest of the US they don't.
