I see nice drivers, too

I hate to take issue with a Brit who says only nice things about America ["Behind the wheel, it's a whole other country," Dec. 21], but I, too, was amazed at the politeness of the drivers when I got to this area, and I was born and raised in the United States (in California, which is part of America, though many here deny it).

I think it's a big-city-versus-smallish-town thing. In Los Angeles or New York or Miami, that peaceful wave you get while merging onto the freeway is just as likely to be a one-finger salute.
