Unhappy I'm not sure if the battle hasn't been lost in S. Florida..

or more correctly in Miami. My own experience was with a jet skier who passed our slip at speed (its a no wake zone). When my wife yelled at him to slow down he circled around and exposed himself (I kid you not). My wife's comment was that "it looked like a penis, only smaller". We called the police, who, to their credit caught the guy as he landed and managed to fine him $250 on some technicality. They felt that he could not pursue the "indecent exposures" charge.

Most cases of this nature are not processed, we were persistent AND got lucky with the police we dealt with.

The general behavior will only change on the roads and on the water here when, either;

a. The level of carnage reaches an unacceptable level.
b. People demand a more socially evolved society and the authorities are tasked to enforce it.

I'm not holding my breath.

ps. This is not a diatribe on race or culture, its a simple a matter of law enforcement.
