Like Sammy said: "I Can't Drive 65!!"
If you are going slow---MOVE OVER!
Good for the cops on this one!
Awesome! I wish they gave more tickets for slow driving in the left lane. It’s a real issue in Virginia—everyone just drives in the left lane. and it drives me crazy.
...but I'm doing the speed limit, she says.
Exactly! ..is my reply.
Well, you paid taxes for those right-hand lanes too, they are built just for you.
The guy going slower than you is a JERK!
The one faster than you is a MANIAC!
Two mph is nothing. There must have been at least a middle finger involved in this.
What Part of "Slower Traffic Keep Right" Do You NOT Understand?
When I go on cruise control at 64 in the far-left Carpool lane in a 60 MPH Zone, and people think I ought to be going 70+, well, they can just go around me in the fast lane.
Driving slow in the left lane with left turn signal on, neither hand on the steering wheel, talking on a cellphone with one hand and waving the other hand around the interior of the vehicle with one leg out the window.
She gets only partial credit.
Back when the speed limit was 55 a friend of mine was doing 55 in Los Angeles and a CHP car pulled up beside him and gave him a dirty look and motioned for him to speed up. When the flow of traffic is 70 go 70.
If you’re in the left hand lane and there is nobody in front of you and nobody to and the right then get to the right.
This was on I95 anyway ~ it's full of left lane exits ~ to get off the highway you must keep left.
Some backwoods spots in the far West might have a keep right law but not for multi-lane divided highways on the East Coast!
This was I95 in Maryland ~ your advice doesn’t work on that road. The cop seems to have been a newbie from an isolated rural township in another country or something.
We can always tell those out of staters by the way they cut you off entering the road. So, a warning, we get to pack heat without a license ~ please be polite and MOVE LEFT to get out the way!
Slower traffic keep right is well and good, but when I’m cruising at 5 mph over the limit and passing a line of slower traffic, why is it some moron in a Beamer always seems to come screaming up to my bumper at 85? I feel no obligation to speed up to 90 to get out of his way; I’ll pull back to the right WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!
Here’s an added wrinkle - in Kansas, you must get in the left lane when passing by a police car that has somebody pulled over.
The policae are draconian in enforcing this...to the point that its an insanely dangerous. Whenever somebody gets pulled over, I feel like its the start of a Nascar race, with everyone jockying for position.
If the person you get irratated with in the left is doing the SPEED LIMIT, then they AREN’T “slower traffic”...
