Novices to roads of any metropolitan region of New York must be made to note an unwritten yet established rule of the road regarding traffic. That rule is as true as it was when it was termed in regards to the theory of evolution. It is "survival of the fittest." Those who persevere are at times the victims of the anger of the defeated, some of whom will seek redemption by wishful animosity that may lead to a spat. Desperation has led these drivers to forego courtesy for short-term achievement. Road rage is a rare result of this unyielding swarm.
