    "Are there bad, white male drivers under 60?"

    Yes, they're called Idahoans.

    These hick jackasses get up at 4 a.m. so they can brag to fellow hick bretheren about how hard they work on the farm while looking down their noses at younger generations and us lazy city foke. In reality they're a bunch of lazy asses taking as long as possible to do everything including driving on I-15. Why don't you sleep in and work a little harder instead you neanderthal freaks? Maybe you could afford to pave more than one highway lane if you did.

    Why the hell do Idahoans enjoy driving so damn slow? Serious question. Any Idahoans on here want to explain the fascination our friends to the north have with traveling at below average speeds?

    I will give Idahoans this, they at least get out of the fast lane when you come up behind them.

    I can drive all over Idaho, and in general, not get stuck behind some putz that feels they're going fast enough and that nobody should go faster than them. I cross the Utah border and by the time I get to the Brigham City turn off I want to kill someone. Utahns do NOT know how to vacate the fast lane to let faster traffic pass.

    Here they're usually driving reckless due to the non stop cell phone calling and text messaging (despite the fact that both are illegal)

    You must have come up behind the only 3 Idahoans who understand driving 101 because that's complete ******** in Utah, SLC, and Davis counties. They are seriel offenders who head straight for the fast lane with a 55 cruising speed and won't move over for highway patrol flashing lights.

    I've heard it's because they're too damn lazy to pave both lanes, so they only travel in the smooth left hand lane.

    I've only been involved in one wreck and it was when some old white woman (like 60's-ish) back up into me out of nowhere.

    I see a lot of younger guys (like 16-19) driving like complete idiots all the time though.

    Since you want me to answer both parts, and you seem to prefer complete and thorough answers to short snippets, I will endeavor to provide you with both.
    To understand the basis of cognitive bias, you have to go into what happens when you learn something. Learning is, at one level, the process of correctly applying a previously seen pattern to a new object, when you were not able to apply that pattern before. Learning a new word doesn't mean you only use that word at one specific object or one specific happening in time, you have learned the word when you can successfully apply it to very similar objects/occurrences. For example, “dog” is not just the four-legged creature sitting on the small mattress in the living room, but applicable to a huge number of four-legged creatures. “Coin” is not the particular piece of copper and zinc in my hand, but applicable to any number of small metal pieces.
    Learning to recognize a pattern is a great tool for any mental equipment shed, but like any other tool, it can be misapplied. In particular, humans will identify patterns where none truly exist. If you flip a coin five times, and then show the sequence to a person, more likely than not that person will see a pattern and identify a “correct” sixth member of the sequence, even though there is no correct prediction to the sixth flip. This is combined with the natural human tendency to remember our successes and discount our failures. There is a great feedback loop in effect here, in that being right engenders positive emotions and being wrong engenders negative emotions. These two effects combine into a tendency to identify patterns, and then remember instances that confirm these patterns and discount instances that disconfirm these patters. This tendency is called cognitive bias.
    So, when the original poster talked about how every bad driver fit a certain profile, that was seen through the lens of cognitive bias. You happen to notice that two or three bad drivers in a row fit a certain pattern. The pattern gets fixed in your brain. You start to notice more other drivers who fit your pattern, and ignore the drivers who go against it.
    That’s why the original post can best be explained as cognitive bias.
