My theory is either young and nervous because they are inexperienced or old and nervous because their reflexes and reaction times aren’t what they used to be.

Then there are just a-holes that do it because they can and want to make a point. Same reason people in the US drive at the speed limit in the left lane when there is no one in the middle or right lanes preventing them from moving to the right and getting out of the way.
