Why blame the drivers for the utter shitshow that is the typical national road network?

As the song goes, "That's just the way it is. Some things will never change."

Plainly put, humans suck when it comes to large groups. We're built for tribal/clan organizations, really. Plus security and ease of use can be at odds (classic example being your front door), creating dilemmas for people looking for rock-hard turnkey solutions (aka looking for an idiot-proof Internet your Grandma can just pick up and use--Good F'N Luck).
