I don't think 55+ in a 50 zone is hogging the left lane if you have a turn coming up.

I don't either. But please don't pretend that there is not an abundance of self important douche bags that think it's their civic duty to block traffic and set the speed for everyone else.

sammyk: for good or for awesome: Roads with intersections every few hundred yards don't have fast lanes.  I'm not going to weave in and out of traffic to make my turn just so you can drive a couple miles and hour faster than me.  Even if you are a big tough guy in a truck.

You could like try to be courteous in situations like that. it could even be argued that common sense says letting the dickheaded big tough truck guy go on past you actually makes YOU safer. But nah, kick the anthill. I'm sure you get something out of it.


No. There is no expectation of lane usage nor are there laws about staying to the right on roads like that. Making up rules in your head will only end up with your pickup truck sliding backwards into oncoming traffic.

No, no, no. This is Fark. If you're driving in the left lane, it doesn't matter how fast you're going. If the car behind you wants to go faster, that's your problem, and you'd better let them pass you or you're wrong.

Also, someone in the right lane going exactly the speed limit is a hazard to everyone else on the road. I've been told this many, many times.

Just so long as you realize you're at fault when an accident occurs. Don't come crying on fark about how you're paralyzed for life because some guy rear ended you while you were intentionally being an asshole to spite him/her.

You are literally the cause of much of the traffic problems in this country. Well you and all those that think like you. The best part is you make yourself out to be the victim while admitting that you're the cause.

I had a great interaction with  a road rage moron awhile back:

I was coming onto the highway along a very busy entrance ramp like I do EVERY day, and this ramp turns into an off ramp in a short distance, so you must merge onto the highway quickly.

 I had 3 car lengths to merge into between cars (which is more than you usually have here) and this chick in a mustang purposefully guns it  to close the gap so that I can't merge.  I give her a WTF face and should shrug as we are staring face to face and she begins to flip me the bird... BLAAAMMO.... she rear ended the car in front of her since traffic had stopped and she was focusing on screwing me over.

...we were only within eyesight of eachother for like 50 feet so I really don't know how she could have had anything against me to pull this? I guess she was having a bad day that got even worse.

A few years ago I was driving on I-20 near the Georgia - Alabama border, doing about 12 miles over the speed limit in the left lane and a truck came flying up behind me.  Put on my right turn signal and waited for an opening to get into the right lane.  Truck guy started laying on the horn, flashing lights, and generally losing his mind.  This, despite the fact that I had shown him wanted to get out of his way and was already exceeding the speed limit.  He passed me and shot the finger as he did.  My daughters asked me why he was so mad--I told them some people just like to drive angry.

A few miles down the road, we passed Angry Trucker Dud, who'd been pulled over by a State Trooper.  Had a quick laugh about it and continued on.  We pull into a rest area when we got into Alabama and the girls played for a bit, then we got back on the road.   A few minutes later, Angry Trucker Dude hauled ass up next to my truck, shot me the finger again, and sped off.  We saw him again a few minutes later, this time being attended to by a Bama trooper.

I used to drive with a certain amount of anger, but my wife told me that it really made being with me in a car difficult.  I found a way to mellow out--I just imagined that cars that were pissing me off were being driven by kindly but clueless aunts or uncles of friends of mine...and then imagined how I'd feel if I saw them later, after I'd been an asshole on the road.  Made a world of difference.  Since I stopped actively looking for reasons to be mad while driving, it has greatly improved my chill factor.  Others have said it in this thread--all that stress and anger over petty bullshiat with strangers on the road just aren't worth the toll it puts on you.

You must've gotten the non-Truck Nutz model...those are for Nancy-ass Nancies...

And since we're sharing stories:

Part of my morning commute goes down a two-lane residential road (30 MPH); the lane widens at one point, big enough for two cars to fit side-by-side but it's tight (not to mention, still striped as a single lane); most drivers stay as far left as possible on this road because of all the potholes by the shoulder, and almost every day for the past year or so I'd see the same white-trash hambeast pull to the right and gun down this vacated space at twice the speed limit to gain a few extra car lengths, then force her way back into traffic when the lane narrowed back down at a curve about half a mile ahead.  I call her "Barb", I have no idea who the hell she is but she had this jacked-up blue Colorado with redneck barbed-wire pinstriping tape all the way around.

She was pulling this stunt one morning last December, flying through a half-foot of snow that had accumulated on the shoulder when she got loose trying to bully her way back into traffic, clipped a city plow truck which spun her around and put her in the oncoming lane where she got T-boned on the passenger's side by a 1-ton Ram (which also had a plow on it).  That put a stop to it for a couple months, but now that the weather's getting warmer I see her doing the same crap in the silver Frontier she drives now...hopefully next time an even bigger truck T-bones her stupid ass on the other side...

That won't work unless you replace your entire rear windshield with a mirror.

wrong. i simply turn the middle window slightly upwards, so the light doesnt hit my eye. guess where it goes? :)

same with the rear windows. angle slightly upward and adjust til the beam is behind you with no glare.

i dont need rear view mirrors to tell me what i can learn from looking slightly left or right. plus its more fun when the jackasses start flashing lights and it does nothing to me ;)

Bullshiat.  You have a citation to show that this is the law "in most places"?

The Keep Right laws I'm familiar with require you to stay in the righmost lane unless you are passing, or unless you are approaching a left turn - they do NOT require you to move out of the way of an overtaking vehicle, no matter how fast Jethro P Roadrage flashes his headlights or how close he tailgates.

BizarreMan: I'm not entirely sure who the jackass is in this particular scenario.

Not to excuse his actions but:

She claims that the road conditions are wet and slick so she doesn't want to speed.  Given the results of speeding and swerving being a crash, she may be correct.

There was apparently enough distance/time for her to get far enough past the car she was passing for him to pass them, cut to the right lane, and then pass her.  Plenty of time for her to get over, let him by, and then move back over to the left lane for her turn.

If it's so dangerous to be on the wet roads, taking care not to wreck.  It should be too dangerous for her to be taking one hand off the wheel and grab her cell phone.  At which point she then finds the app, and aims the phone in his general direction.  Even if she wasn't watching what was being recorded while driving.  That isn't safe driving.  It's damn dangerous.  If the conditions are so bad.

She says on the video and articles that she's made recordings like this before which tells me that she is a passive-aggressive left lane Nazi with AW tendencies.  I'm curious how many other videos she has on YouTube where drivers are being incited to road rage.


You aren't wrong and I was thinking much the same thing, BUT none of the above is dangerous in and of itself. The guy in the truck should have just passed her and moved on. Intimidating someone in your giant penis compensator is a far worse offense in my mind then what this woman did.

tforbes: there are only two types of drivers worse than left lane nazis.

people who break check you (regardless of lane) and people who try to high-beam you after you pass them.


One usually follows the other.  Every time I'm driving in some shiathole like NJ or MA and give someone on the interstate the "please move over" headlight flash, they give a pretend brake-check instead of moving.  When I eventually pass them on the right, they will zip in behind me and try to melt my retinas.

Usually this earns them a real brake check since they love to follow at 10ft or less.

Listen people, this shiat is simple.

1. If someone behind you wants to go by, just get out of their way.  No need for drama.
2. If someone in front of you won't move over, just go around them.  No need for drama.

That said the actual WORST are the hoodrats with the fake blue HIDs, or worse, real HIDs mounted in factory headlight housings.  If this is you, kill yourself.

You never know, one of those times you might be fast enough to barely make the next light and then you are golden.  If I can shave 10% off my driving time by going faster that equals at least 24 hours a year I am NOT spending in my car.  If you want to drive the speed limit and spend an extra couple of MONTHS sitting in your car over the course of your life then know yourself out.

That's what you get, cowboys.  You aren't traffic heroes for tailgating.

Yes, other than being just as dangerous as he is on the road, she's doing everything correctly. That's the ticket!


"Just as dangerous"?

The idiot truck driver caused an accident, could have killed people when he went off the road.  Was speeding, tailgating, driving too close, threatening other drivers, and she was "just as dangerous"?

Uh, no.

Fark is obviously packed with road ragers.  Not a big surprise, in fact, just confirms a long time suspicion.

Stressing at traffic isn't worth a heart attack.

xalres: NicktheSmoker: Also, shouldn't she also get a ticket for using her damn phone while driving?

As far as I know, that's not illegal in Florida yet. My brother in law was constantly on his phone/texting/checking email when I visited him down there, drove me nuts. I asked him if he was worried about getting a ticket and he said it wasn't against the law yet.


I was driving in Florida a few years back, my fiancee was like, holy shiat, look at that!  I look over to the right, a girl, driving with her knees, texting.  At 60MPH.
I was like, OK, getting the hell away from that, so I overtook her in the left lane, and as I passed, notice that the entire front of her car had collision damage much like you would get from rear ending someone.

farking Florida.

Gonz: OregonVet: sammyk: Meh, left lane nazis' make my blood boil

I don't think 55+ in a 50 zone is hogging the left lane if you have a turn coming up.

No, no, no. This is Fark. If you're driving in the left lane, it doesn't matter how fast you're going. If the car behind you wants to go faster, that's your problem, and you'd better let them pass you or you're wrong.

Also, someone in the right lane going exactly the speed limit is a hazard to everyone else on the road. I've been told this many, many times.


The Fark ProDriver© squad should arrive soon to tell everyone that they are better drivers.

I live, unfortunately, in South Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhkota: Land of enormous, and poorly driven, trucks. They don't know how to park and they sure as shiat can't drive. They tailgate me when I'm in the right lane doing the speed limit. They stop short. Half the time they hog their lane and half of mine too. It's always some twat in a stupid looking cowboy hat, billowing white shirt and smug look. I would love to see one of these douchebags total their truck over something like this.

You only need to see that truck parked to know the owner is a total douche, people who own giant trucks and then don't use them for actually hauling stuff are assholes. Either that dude is less than 5ft 5 or he has a tiny ween.

This was a surface street, not an interstate. It has unprotected left turns. Drive right, pass on the left does not apply. She did nothing wrong (she's an annoying ass, but that's another story). Once the right lane was clear, Mr. Truck moved into the right lane and could have passed her, the road ahead was open, and instead decided to drive next to her while displaying his belief that Duke is #1. In this case, she did nothing wrong, he was utterly and completely at fault. He got what he deserved.

SurfaceTension: adragontattoo: Dancin_In_Anson: I wonder why everyone is in such a farking hurry to get to the next red light.

I always laugh when I am in town and someone hauls ass as soon as the light turns green.  I always make sure to applaud and congratulate them on winning the race to the red light.  I then profusely apologize for taking so long to arrive.  Best so far was the guy who "raced" me to 5 consecutive red lights.  I was very ashamed that I managed to lose to him so many times.  The cops even pulled him over to congratulate him (I assume that is why they pulled a U-turn and started up their disco lights.)

And I thought the lights in northern Virginia were awfully timed. Where is this hell-hole that you live that has red lights that one can catch 5 consecutive without hitting a green?


Aren't they timed so that, if you go the speed limit in the city, you can catch them as they are turning green?

Sometimes referred as a green wave.

She had ample opportunity to pull over and let him pass, he was an idiot for tailgating and slowing down to give her the bird, unless she sped up to try and prevent him from getting in front of her.

There were a couple of left turn lanes that I could see during that exchange.  When exactly was she going to turn?

Stop trying to control other drivers, that's what the police are for.  End road vigilantes.

Freeways work most efficiently when inside lanes are traveling faster than outside lanes.

Also, driving side-by-side when the rest of the road is clear is just dumb.  Who are you most likely to hit?  The ONLY OTHER CAR ON THE ROAD.

Only by a complete and utter idiot. He wiped out because of his own ineptitude. She MAY have been an ass, but she did not cause his crash in any way, shape, or form.

I don't think 55+ in a 50 zone is hogging the left lane if you have a turn coming up.


Coming up meaning the next 1/4 mile or sometime eventually in the next 5 miles I will have to turn left so I will just stay in the left lane until then no matter what?

Before all of the self righteous blow hards arrive to proclaim that they are doing the speed limit so they don't have to move, I would like to provide the following link.  http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2006/022006/02092006/166829   In this link there is a statement from the Virginia State Police.  "Leave it up to police officers to deal with any violations they might be committing. We'll handle that," he said. "But the law still requires you to move to the right and let them pass."

That means that unless you are a LEO, you don't get to decide to enforce the law.  No!  Not yours!  3.bp.blogspot.com

I'm on the fence with this one so I took out the AW tendencies of her, her propensity to endanger others with her vertical video stupidity while driving and the fact she was pretty much hogging the lane and I am left with this: Unless we're missing something he is in the wrong. Feelings don't matter, the 'coulda/shoulda/woulda' actions mean nothing. If the law specifies she did nothing wrong that's that.

As much as I hate left lane hogs Bubba McRedneck passed her on the right, forgot about the physics of a vehicle with an automatic transmission, a vehicle with excellent engine braking and discovered what happens .When you suddenly decelerate from a moderate speed in a lower gear on a slick road. Couple that with the empty bed and he looped it, very well I might add.

Now it would have been funny if he's spun out and caused her to wreck as well. That would have been the old 2 birds with one stone idea.

I'm not entirely sure who the jackass is in this particular scenario.

Not to excuse his actions but:

She claims that the road conditions are wet and slick so she doesn't want to speed.  Given the results of speeding and swerving being a crash, she may be correct.

There was apparently enough distance/time for her to get far enough past the car she was passing for him to pass them, cut to the right lane, and then pass her.  Plenty of time for her to get over, let him by, and then move back over to the left lane for her turn.

If it's so dangerous to be on the wet roads, taking care not to wreck.  It should be too dangerous for her to be taking one hand off the wheel and grab her cell phone.  At which point she then finds the app, and aims the phone in his general direction.  Even if she wasn't watching what was being recorded while driving.  That isn't safe driving.  It's damn dangerous.  If the conditions are so bad.

She says on the video and articles that she's made recordings like this before which tells me that she is a passive-aggressive left lane Nazi with AW tendencies.  I'm curious how many other videos she has on YouTube where drivers are being incited to road rage.
