SnarfVader: Bad driver thread!/Makes popcorn
Eddie Adams from Torrance: "If we all followed that law," said Doug Groner of Hillsdale, "we'd have everybody squeezed into one right lane."No farktard. Most European highways are 2 lanes and when people stay the fark right traffic flows 1000% better.
EnviroDude: citizens arrest the cop for following too closely.
EnviroDude: /and if that doesn't work, next time brake for an amoeba and get rear ended
Quantum Apostrophe: Isn't there a "make way" law?

serial_crusher: This woman is 20 years old and, not only is she stupid enough to know that the left lane is for passing, but she's also letting her dad fight her battles for her? Sounds like a catch, guys.
Theaetetus: If true, she essentially set up a rolling roadblock with the truck for 3 miles.

Popcorn Johnny: Come to Chicago, people ride the left lane here more than anywhere I've been. People will sit in the left lane when there isn't another car within a mile of them.
JonnyG: The horrible thing is that this is actually a tactic trained to and used by police everywhere. I agree that slow drivers should move over and let faster drivers by, but only up to the speed limit. Police are trained to try and push you over the speed limit, make you nervously weave, etc.
BronyMedic: Grats bro. You just bought the county a new police cruiser by causing an accident which you are 100% at fault for. (Thanks to Ambulance Chasing, the laws regarding rear-end collisions have now changed to either shared responsibility, or the lead car being responsible for doing just that) You do know those things have cameras, right?
KimNorth: Good! I so hate these control freaks who get off on holding up traffic just because they can, move the fark over you asshat!
lexnaturalis: Considering my wife just got a ticket for a rear-end collision in which the car in front of her suddenly slammed on the brakes, I'm going to say you're simply making stuff up.
This text is now purple: Chicago also likes having on-ramps enter from the left and having the right lane subsequently disappear to keep the lane count constant. I can almost understand why they tend to stick left.

If you're slower than someone else on the road, you shouldn't be in the left lane. Easy as that.
