Maine has one of the oldest populations in the US. That probably plays a factor.

I don't know, in my experience it's an out of state plate like 99% of the time

In my experience it's almost always someone with 9 toes through death's door, at least in the midcoast region.

That’s also me. I clench my teeth to get through Wiscasset. For fucks sake.

I’ve been here for most of my 33 years of life, I have Texas plates (dual residency). People treat me like shit on the road: I’ve learned to ignore it. I have a Maine license. Pull me over! Oh, wait… I’m the anti-camper, though. I will pass on the right. Enjoy your sight seeing.

Oh yeah I pass campers on the right all the time, fuck 'em lol

Elder people were never taught how to drive?

Nope, not it. Cognitive difficulty, memory loss, all that stuff. Lots of stories of elderly folks accidentally plowing into buildings because they mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal.

Some elderly people can drive fine, others can't.
