People with that attitude love to be aggravated and get all self-righteous for a certain portion of every day. They're making a big statement (mostly to themselves) about how they're doing whatever, and the whole rest of the world is against them, and trying to kill them, and not following the laws, and purposely making their lives hard.
It's very difficult to argue someone out of that world view, and they're generally belligerent and unpleasant to be around. But dammit, they're RIGHT!
Nothing you said is consistent with the article. For example,
he estimated problem drivers to be maybe 5%. Not the whole world. And while many drivers are breaking the laws, he suggested we should cut each other some slack.
it would probably be very hard to argue the author out of world view he doesn't hold.
