I don’t get it.

Just in this past week I’ve experienced four different occasions where some jackwad PURPOSEFULLY sits in the left lane going 50 mph and creating a huge backup behind them. The right lane is full so no one can drive around either.

This is on a highway where the average speed is 70 to 80 miles an hour as well.

It’s absolutely infuriating, it seems like they get their jollies off of it or something being assholes. Confused

Are they passing or just riding along slower?

That's why cars need missile launchers in the front like a Bond car.

On my commute to work, I regularly see two different people. One drives a white Super Duty and the other drives a gray Chevy or GMC pickup. Either one will sit in the left lane and drive exactly the speed limit while people continually pass them on the right.

Not passing. Riding in the left lane of a busy two lane highway and refusing to move over even when they have numerous chances to do so. And purposely going 10-20 mph slower than the normal flow of traffic Mad

Whats your state law regarding lane camping?

Arizona sheriff Mark Lamb enforces left lane camping.

I'm assuming he's talking about the PA Turnpike, there are plenty of signs stating to "Keep Right Except To Pass". I think it's supposed to be a fine if you don't.

I've never seen anyone get pulled over for not passing while in the left lane....in PA.

I've seen it happen in NJ half a dozen times.

My favorite is the people that are going a fraction of a mph faster than the traffic they are passing. Take's about 10 miles for them to complete the pass and they stay in the left lane. Then they increase their speed about 10-15mph once people start passing them on the right. Roll Eyes

My car is too underpowered to even get out of its own way. I no longer worry about such things as around here, the "passing lane" merely means people going 100+ passing everyone else until they can swerve over at the last possible second to bully merge at the front of an off ramp.

Agreed.

You're not alone. Same thing is happening in Illinois, except it's four lane highways they're managing to turn into a clusterfuck, not just two lane deals.

Regularly on the Tri-State (I-294), you'll have semis in three lanes, and someone camping in the left lane. Also, within the past three months it's common for semis to be riding in the left lane which is a huge no-no.

Makes my commute to and from work a real extraordinary pain in the ass.

Forgot? That assumes they knew how to begin with!

This is one of my biggest pet peeves. Here in Dallas it is usually either a BMW or a Prius driver. One of them is trying to save the world from global warming. The other is just oblivious to anything or anyone around them. Until you try to pass them on the right to get around them. Then it's like you have offended their smugness, and lit their ass on fire.



It's all about clean living. Just do the right thing, and karma will help with the rest.

Against the law in Minnesota, I know people who have actually called the highway patrol and gotten a response in a short time frame.

I’m pretty certain it’s against the law everywhere.

THANK YOU!!!!

I've been trying to think of a word (other than MF'er) to describe someone who ZOOMS to the front of the line of cars exiting, EXPECTING to be let in like they're some sort of important ENTITLED sunuvabitch when I-eeee planned 2 gd miles ago to get in line and wait my f*c*ing turn!!!

I've started riding the ass-end of the person in front of me to block these sunsabitches from getting in front of me. If I'm good enough to plan ahead and get in line 2 miles ago, then so are they!!! That doesn't grind my gears.....it STRIPS the shit outta them!! Mad Mad Mad

I agree erj.

I also understand about using all of a merging lane to "zipper". The people I think of are the ones Mars described. They zoom along and then try and bully their way into an exit or turning lane.

GRRRR

What has pissed me off for years is the company truckers that have to drive governed trucks.

I hate driving two lane I35 in Texas. Those ass holes do what I call side by side drag racing. One truck will go 1 MPH faster then the other so he'll get in the left lane and take 10 miles to pass the other truck. All the while holding everyone else up.

Oh and I have had a CDL license with everything on it since the 90's and a class A 15 years before the CDL went into effect.

Happens everyday here. The slow pokes are far worse than the speed demons.

Slow pokes piss me off, but I've never seen one put 4 other cars in the wall while swerve passing at 100+mph.

I pulled a dead man from his car after some left lane race car driver doing over 100+ hit a left lane driver "passing" everyone over 80+ from behind, sending him over to pit an innocent driver into the wall for another left lane "Passer" to hit him square in the driver's door without even braking.

The "passer", was then hit from behind by the Andretti wannabe who then spun into the middle of traffic, hitting two other cars, killing a child.

All this unfolded in front of me on my camera as I was slow poking along around 80mph in the right lane. It took everything I had to get my BMW under control and stopped as high speed Korean shitboxes disintegrated into debris everywhere.

Everyone is the best driver ever until they aren't.
