J.Shelby: timujin: Kaenneth:
I don't think you know what that word means.

It forces the direction of the passing, not the passing itself.  You can intentionally misunderstand what someone writes, but it just makes you look like a pendant or a moron.

I'm a pendant; what you got against pendants, huh?  We keep your fskin' girlfriend happy, eh.  You got somethin' against jewelry?  I bet you're one of those perpetually hateful people, ain't ya? Just can't stand to see somone happy.  Miserable bastid.

Kaenneth: Intrepid00: skozlaw: She might win the case. Maryland does not appear to have any sort of meaningful keep right law.

Some of the counties do. Enjoy.

That's one of my peeves.

County and City cops should have no jurisdiction on Interstate roads, and city cops none on state roads for traffic infractions.

Interstate commerce shouldn't have to worry about funding some one horse town's mayoral mansion with speed traps, and etc.


Well tell the state to keep their roads and troopers out of cities.  Jurisdiction is based on borders and sometimes that is grayed by police forces that combine jurisdictions.  We have different police departments talking about combing jurisdictions as a way to help each others budget issues, and I mean departments of different towns.  MI state troopers have helped Flint a lot lately with city enforcement and I appreciate their efforts.  I find your peeve to be ludicrous and if you don't want tickets there is a system to keep from getting them.  Take a hint from the signs posted.

Interstate highways are normally owned by states and are legally the same as other state highways. In rare cases they might be owned by a city or a federal agency.

Which state laws apply on federally owned highways depends on details of the agreement between state and federal government. States may or may not retain jurisdiction. If they do not, state laws may apply anyway via the Assimilative Crimes Act, but would be enforced by federal law enforcement agncies. You can get a federal speeding ticket on some DC area parkways.

The Southern Dandy: The post about jurisdiction got me thinking....

If an interstate highway is run through a private citizen's land, who does that portion of the interstate highway belong to?  Is it federal property, or does it still belong to the citizen?  If it's federal property, does that same ruling hold true if an interstate highway is run through a municipality? Does the highway belong to the federal government or the municipality?  If there's a difference, why?

If interstate highway's are federal property, how do local authorities have jurisdiction over them?

Any GED Law degreed lawyers have an answer?


When they build roads, they buy the land off who ever owns it.  They may not like it, but they are paid to get over it.  The property covered by the road does belong to the state.  I don't think the federal government owns the interstate system anymore, but do give the states grants towards maintenance.  Anyone crossing the OH/MI border on I-75 can tell you they can see the difference really quickly between the states.  I think it is a myth that police can't leave jurisdiction, they do need permission from the jurisdiction they are going into before hand.  Jurisdiction lines can be really gray since they are decided on by judges and police chiefs.

Not always. My property borders a county and a state road, and I own to the center of both. The deed does list the easement and setback distances for each road, but the actual property line markers (railroad spikes driven into the roadbed) are between the yellow lines.

I think it is a myth that police can't leave jurisdiction, they do need permission from the jurisdiction they are going into before hand.

Varies a lot from place to place, and the rules are based on custom as much as law.

In my state state police have jurisdiction statewide and municipal police have jurisdiction in whatever cities have granted them police power (which can be more than one). There are also special rules like jurisdiction of Newton police extends 500 feet into the town of Brookline.

In some states city police have jurisdiction in an entire county, or even statewide.

What is more generally true is only one or two agencies have "primary" jurisdiction over each highway. Other police forces are expected to enforce safety violations only, not routine traffic tickets. I passed an unmarked New York sheriff on an Interstate at a ticketable speed, but it wasn't his road so he didn't ticket me. If I had been going double the speed limit instead of 20 over he would have pulled me over. And then he would have had the hassle of going to a traffic court session he doesn't normally go to and explaining to the state troopers why he poached one of their fish.

/csb

sitting at a traffic light with my brother driving, guy in the car in front of us tosses a butt out, my brother (bout 6'2/240lbs) gets out, picks up the still smoldering butt, and tosses it back thru the guys window (was a BMW 5 or 7 series IIRC) and the guy goes ape shiat trying to find and re-toss the butt, he finds it, looks to toss it, but my brother is still standing there, the dude looks at him, his hand staring to burn, and started to get out, my brother told him he probably should stay in the car, he did .. it was a smart move on his part

Heh, I lived in Laurel for a good ten years or so.

She's lucky she just got a ticket. You should see what happens to people who stand in the left lane of Metro escalators.

Everyone drives 10mph over the posted limit. You don't even get any points on your license for going 9mph over. I've never gotten a ticket for anything less than 15mph over the limit (except in tourist towns like Ocean City when the cops are trying to meet their monthly quota or are just hoping to bust people for driving drunk/high). Actually, I think they just set the speed limits 10mph lower than the usual flow on purpose, so cops can more or less pull people over whenever they like, and not get accused of racial profiling or somesuch. That, and so your insurance doesn't have to cover as much when you wreck because you were probably "exceeding the limit"

Finally, if you see someone driving like an asshole, don't try to do anything to "correct" them, because then there are two assholes on the road. Just try your best to put some safe distance between you and the asshole, and maybe you'll be rewarded with a nice show when they do manage to run into another asshole.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: The idiot brigade is out in force, I see. News flash: the leftmost lane is not a "passing lane." There is no such thing as a "passing lane." That is an antiquated term from the early 20th century when most roads were two-lane and you'd have to pass on the left.

Nowadays, especially on multi-lane roadways, every lane is a driving lane. I always go the speed limit in the left lane, and I love it when people tailgate me and throw their hands up in the air and make all sorts of goofy gestures. Hit me, you're at fault. Or do what I do and leave for your destination on time.


You are the idiot. Daily I see highway signs "keep right except to pass."

Eventually pulling that shait in the passing lane, someone will hit you, and it will be there fault, and they won't care, (I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets one free accident on my insurance, never mind the uninsured), so, your car will be in the ditch and you may well need some hospital time. But you would still get to feel vastly, smugly, wrongly, superior, while you were in traction.
(also some time you might pull that in front of someone who will simply shot out a tire... or the driver...)
and the first thing in the fark thread about that story will be that grumpy cat jpg with GOOD.
The left lane is still the passing lane, given enough traffic, that doesn't always work out, but if the second lane is empty and you are in the left lane, you are not in the right lane. Period.

65 is the upper limit, folks, not lower.  63 is therefore perfectly reasonable. Its within the range of accuracy of your typical speedometer.
To those complaining that the left lane is for passing I say, why would anybody be passing her? She was basically at the max allowable speed.


That out of the way, I have always wondered how successful it would be to argue in court that speed limits signs fail to establish the limits since they lack a tolerance.  Ideally a speed limit sign would say something like 55 +/- 5 mph.  Obviously nobody can drive right at 55 and if you can be ticketed for going too fast, or too slow, then you need to know what the tolerance is.  If the sign doesn't define it, how can you be expected to adhere to the law?

By the way the broad has a good chance of getting off if she fights it in court.  A buddy of mine got a similar ticket back in high school.  52 in a 55.  He basically didn't move over quick enough for the cops liking when the cop came up behind him.  He went to court on it and the judge ended up chewing out the cop and dismissing the ticket.

If the limit is 65, how are you supposed to pass someone driving 63?

ChildOfBhaal: timujin: .What does this case have to do with speeders?  Someone could pass this woman on the right by going the speed limit, as she was driving below it.

Granted, but let's be realistic.

scottydoesntknow: Sure, they don't "force" the people to change on the right, but they also don't leave them any other option.

No option except for the best, most safe one: Sucking it up and maintaining a safe stopping distance (which is at least a little bit less than the canonical car-length per 10 mph) while making your hopes and dreams for yourself, your car, and that particular lane of traffic crystal clear.  It's a tough balancing act, and it's not particularly emotionally satisfying.  But it is a third option (other than tailgating or passing on the right).   And, to the extent that passing on the right is dangerous (as many claimed above), it's the preferable option.


So you should pull into the right lane, but be careful to go no faster than the left-lane-blocker? And thus impede traffic behind you?

I'm not really sure where passing on the right is illegal. It's legal where I live and I don't really see why it's so dangerous. Is it because the LLB is likely to swerve into the right lane without looking?

Spike Lee's Favorite Farker: I would assume that the radar has a +/-2 mph margin of error. So maybe she was driving right at the speed limit.


It's more than that, most guns are only good within 10%. They also pick up anything in the cone, and most guns are terrible with large objects, reflectivity and cosign errors while measuring doppler shift and range.

The only real time they are truly accurate is if they are measuring the only car on a deserted road. In traffic, worthless.

I shall post my rant again.  If I'm behind you and you're going 20 under the speed limit and I start passing you on the left, and you realize you're going too slow and then go 10 over the speed limit to get far enough ahead for me to get behind you again, then don't go 20 under the speed limit right after I get back behind you.
 
2013-03-13 12:25:18 PM
As others have said, she didn't get a ticket for going too slow, as the article tries to indicate, but that she didn't move over.  More importantly she didn't move over for a POLICE CAR.  I see people camping the left lane all the time but it blows my mind when they do it when a cop is obviously trying to get by them.  Cop could make the case that they aren't paying attention to their surroundings, failed to yield (maybe not if they don't have their lights on) and failing to move to the right when overtaken.  Even if you feel somehow justified in camping the left lane, why do it in front of a cop?  And then complain that you were cited for it?
 
2013-03-13 01:02:28 PM

scottydoesntknow: StrandedInAZ: I so wish they would ticket for that here. It's worse when you're trying to get to work or home in rush-hour traffic and some blue haired snowbird is driving 45 in the left lane, completely oblivious to how badly he's farking up traffic. You can drive below the speed limit, but get the hell over so people can pass you. Why is that so hard?

Because 9 times out of 10 the people who drive that slow are chicken shiats who don't want to be on the road in the first place. By moving to the far left lane they only have to deal with drivers on one side of them instead of two. Even the right lane has to deal with people entering/exiting.

They just don't want the headaches of actually paying attention to their surroundings.


This. That's the same reason why they slowly lose speed as they drift away, until they snap back to attention and see that someone's passing them and speed up to match, or they're passing someone else and slow down to match. They're desperately afraid of sticking out.

I wonder how many of these drivers have warrants, no license, etc.
 
2013-03-13 01:07:05 PM

Mikey1969: ZAZ: While she was in the wrong morally, she was probably not in the wrong legally. In Maryland you can stay in the left lane as long as you are within 10 mph of the speed limit.  Most states require drivers to keep right when moving slower than the normal speed of traffic.

In Utah you can get a ticket for not getting over if someone is approaching you, regardless of your speed. If you're doing 20 mph over the speed limit and a car still overtakes you, you have to move over, otherwise you can get ticketed. The other driver can get ticketed also, of course, but you have to get out of that lane if you are impeding traffic at all. The rest of the time, you can travel that lane to your heart's content.


In other words, "You don't have the right to be an asshole just because someone else is a douche. The cops are better being one anyway, so lay off." I like it.

The Southern Dandy: The post about jurisdiction got me thinking....

If an interstate highway is run through a private citizen's land, who does that portion of the interstate highway belong to?  Is it federal property, or does it still belong to the citizen?  If it's federal property, does that same ruling hold true if an interstate highway is run through a municipality? Does the highway belong to the federal government or the municipality?  If there's a difference, why?

If interstate highway's are federal property, how do local authorities have jurisdiction over them?

Any GED Law degreed lawyers have an answer?


Neither. The state owns all interstate highways except for private toll roads. The land for the road is bought by the state and chopped off from the parcel, which is why there are so many problems with the cost of buying land and eminent domain. When roads are abandoned they're sometimes sold back if anyone wants the land.

However, if you want to look at state highways and US highways, you have a vastly different situation. The state, county, or city/township can "own" and maintain the road, and I wouldn't be surprised if there were private ownership of segments as well. It's a mess and what's legal varies from place to place.

On any such roadway, a vehicle or combination over ten thousand pounds shall be driven only in the right-hand lane except under the conditions enumerated in (a) through (d) of this subsection.

     (3) No vehicle towing a trailer or no vehicle or combination over ten thousand pounds may be driven in the left-hand lane of a limited access roadway having three or more lanes for traffic moving in one direction except when preparing for a left turn at an intersection, exit, or into a private road or driveway when a left turn is legally permitted. This subsection does not apply to a vehicle using a high occupancy vehicle lane. A high occupancy vehicle lane is not considered the left-hand lane of a roadway. The department of transportation, in consultation with the Washington state patrol, shall adopt rules specifying (a) those circumstances where it is permissible for other vehicles to use the left lane in case of emergency or to facilitate the orderly flow of traffic, and (b) those segments of limited access roadway to be exempt from this subsection due to the operational characteristics of the roadway.

     (4) It is a traffic infraction to drive continuously in the left lane of a multilane roadway when it impedes the flow of other traffic.

Americans are the most self-centered people on the planet, and the way we drive is an example of this


You are either lying about being there or lying about the US.
