Have you guys noticed any changes in Traffic and Drivers

I don't know about you guys, but here in hawaii.

I noticed the traffic decreased.

And I think alot more people are actually driving the speed limit, PNG, or DWL

it's interesting, it's much easier now to PNG

Happy to see you are seing changes. Here, they still drive agressively, like the price of gas was cheap or something.

People are driving a little slower on the highway, that's about all I've noticed.

Yes - highway traffic seems a bit slower. Easier now to drive at reduced speed.

What I'd really like to see is more interest in car pooling in the general public.
I have messages posted on several major car pooling boards including craigslist, and so far I've had only one response that led to car pooling. Interest there seems to be very low.

I sure have. I used to always see cars in front of me go past me on my right side and eventually disappear far behind me. These days they come from behind pass me on the left and I see them again later when traffic slows down. But maybe that's more me changing than anyone else...
