Abstract: I noticed something about myself as I drove to Charlotte recently on I-85. When I was in the left lane and a car wanted to pull in front of me to join the parade of left-lane vehicles, I tended to let it in. But when a sport-utility vehicle, or SUV, wanted in, I tended to speed up ever so slightly to prevent it from pulling in front of me.
