Like I said, special endorsement for freeway/divided highway, special plates, and I would go along with some kind of driving review, though were not flying, 4 to maybe 8 years should be sufficient for that endorsement and should be able to be signed off by any licensed driving instructor. Regular dummy license without freeway endorsement shouldnt need review.
Seriously, there is no testing for freeway driving in any state that I know of, and that is rediculous.
Yup, and that simply means more government intervention
. You will never fix stupid people and dumb actions. Just won't happen.

John has hit upon my problem. As an pilot with an air transport rating I pride myself on two things which I bring to my driving.....the ability to look ahead, and driving with precision. Call it ego, call it OCD, but I feel since I have a Class A license I should actually drive like I do.
So I try to anticipate what others are doing and make adjustments to my driving to enable things to happen with the least disruption to me and other drivers. It can be as simple as moving over so a car or truck can merge, or it can be speeding up when passing so I can get out of someone's way.
So I admit to being a little more than irked when other drivers are oblivious to the world around them and how other drivers are inconvenienced or exposed to risk just because their brain was on cruise control. What I have considered inattention is likely stupidity.
