I once had a lifted truck pass me on the sidewalk while I was riding it in the right lane. He blew his horn and flipped me off as he went by. He risked a reckless driving charge just so he could do that.
I drive a Jazz (Canadian Met) too and I understand your pains. However, my experience is the reverse! The city is where my Jazz feels at home because it can keep up with traffic somewhat. In the country, I cannot keep up with traffic and so it becomes very stressful when everyone is passing you.
