If you're driving in the left-lane of the freeway, and there are no cars ahead of you, but a line of cars behind you… you're a dick.
I think people fall into several categories here...none of which help this situation. 1) The oblivious driver 2) the driver that thinks that, because they're driving the speed limit, they really don't need to move to another lane 3) the rude driver. My pet peeve is the person that is behind the driver that falls into one of these three categories and sits on their ass. Just go around them...you sure as hell can't go through them!
I got traffic revenge on a left lane hog. It was between LaJunta and Pueblo Colorado on highway 50. Part of the way it's 4 lane. LH was using slower traffic to keep people from passing. He would not get out of the left lane. I've been up and down that highway since I was 8. I know where it goes back to 2 lane so I got out of town ahead of him. We hit the traffic light red and I have a fast reaction time and a zippy ' lil car and was half a block ahead of him before he was across the intersection. He still had two cars trapped behind him. I kept an eye on what was going on back there. He would speed up if there wasn't any traffic and then slow back down. So when we got to the passing lane I pulled into the right lane. I see Mr White Car pop into the right lane too. LH doesn't see MWC because of the SUV right behind him. I flipped on my blinker and hit the left lane. MWC pulled up along beside me for just a bit and I just turned and waved. Gave him a big ol grin. All of a sudden LH decides he can use the right lane and pased me on the right. He tailgated MWC all the way to the Avalon exit.
I actually saw a Tn State Trooper pull someone over for this. Speed limit was 70...I was doing about 75 when I cam up on them, so I got in the right and went around. Two troopers were sitting in the media, one facing each way as we went by. The person on the left was doing 60-65, I just kept my cruise on. Saw the blue lights, and thought, "WTF - your going to ticket me b/c I was doing 3-5 over and had to pass slow ass on the right", so I slowed down to stop. Was so glad to see the other person pulled over.
I always think there's something kind of fun and snotty about being behind one of those assholes for long enough that they'll know it's you, passing on the right, and moving back to the far left lane in front of them. Then taking off if the coast is clear. EAT MY DUST!!!!!!
