Speaking of bad drivers... How about the guy who sees nothing wrong with going the exact speed limit in the left lane, even when there is no one next to him in the lane to the right? Why should he move over to the right for someone who is obviously speeding, he wonders? When I tried to explain to him that not doing so is actually illegal in many states, he didn't believe me. Sigh...

Had to go to Seattle the other day. Traffic was bad as usual and we came to a crawl on I5 right above BFI. So i looked over to the left to watch a corporate jet take off. I turned to the right just in time to see the driver in the next lane also trying to look at the jet. He was picking his nose.

I hear that.

No Matter the speed I am traveling, I try to stay in the right-hand lane as much as possible and let the jedi warriors battle it out in the left hand lane. My days of alpha male in the left hand lane are long gone.

You go girl! Anymore, I just pull up a seat in the gallery section and watch the action from afar. That's Mr. Chicken to you.

Years ago Richard Petty was behind someone doing that on I95 in NC. Gave him a tap and moved him out of the way. Just rubbin' man!

Atlanta drivers are particularly bad about this. It's funny in rush hour how driving in the right lane is typically considerably faster than competing with all the dummies jamming into the left lanes.

Ever drove in LA? Middle lane is not a safe haven here. Drivers can overtake you from BOTH sides of the road plus... you are allowed to talk and drive as long as you're using a hands-free!

No one is as bad as Ohio drivers in this regard. Actually the worst drivers in the world are in the U.S. and the worst of them are Ohioans. I dread driving through that state.
