Ever been in the fast lane? And come up behind someone.......and wait...........and wait.............AND WAIT........they still do not move over for you........

Do you, A. Pass them on the right and go about your way?
B. Pass them on the right, move over and continue on your way?
C. Wait behind them and go their speed?, or
D. Pass them on the right, get in the fast lane again and SIT in front of them?

It is illegal to drive slow in the fast line and to keep other cars behind you...EVEN IF YOU DRIVE AT THE SPEED LIMIT!

The highway patrol should ticket more often these morons who move all the way to the left and and sleep there not caring bout the other drivers. If you look to a not very busy freeway or street, most of the cars are in the left lane

More and more states are passing drive-right/pass-left laws, but adoption nd enforcement are lax.
I do a fair amount of long distance driving and this has is my pet peeve.

And yes, I am, the jerk who passes on the right when you can't get your head out of your *** in the left lane.

Keep flashing your high beams and if they don't move, flip them off as you pass them on the right.

So what's the solution how fast do you go till you get stopped?

Left Lane . 55 is the speed limit and everyone is going 70..You're saying If I'm behind him at 75-80 he has to move and every car in front of me?

I don't know about every state, but in many states yes that's how the law is actually written. The left lanes are the fast/passing lanes and you are supposed to yield to the faster traffic, regardless of how fast they are going. If they are going faster than you, then you are supposed to get out of the way. It's not the job of the drivers in the left lane to enforce the speed limit. Studies have shown that a lot of traffic congestion is caused by slower drivers in the fast lane. The traffic is building up behind them and some start passing on the right and it's eventually causing ripple effects. The number one rule is slower traffic to the right, even if you are doing the speed limit or above.

Yea, everyone yields to me on the left.

I had a guy come up on me going 95, I just scooted over and went right after him.

​​​​​​​Let him get the first ticket lol

Agree 100%, I hate that ****. The left lane is a PASSING lane. I don't care if I'm in my CL cruising at 100, if some guy comes up behind me going faster, I will move over and let him go past me. That's the way it's supposed to work. 97% of drivers in the USA are retarded though.

If "everyone" is going 70, and you want to go 55, can you explain why you are not already in the right most lane?

You shouldn't have to move over for faster traffic.

You shouldn't have been in that lane in the fist place!

Huh? Speed is relative, you are not always the fastest moving traffic..What am I missing in the above statement?

60-70-80-90-100-110-120..Why am I going 130 if he wants to do 150? Why am I in the left? LOL?

If you had room to move over to the right, . . . . you had room to BE over in the right!

Better?

I've seen many situations when, on a 4 lanes freeway for example, the 3rd lane is moving faster than the 4th (left) lane....and there is a f***ing retarded on the left who keeps everybody behind him having half of mile of EMPTY LANE in front of him.

I won't do that, but sometimes I pass the imbecile on the right, move in front of him/her and then I release the acceleration pedal my car getting slower and slower to a point when the idiot can't take it anymore and tries to pass me on the right....but then I resume accelerating and never let that retarded to get in front of me again....most of them get the message and stay on the right, the REAL IDIOTS move back to the left and keep doing what they were doing before, and some of these, the miserable s.o.b.s even trying to chase me....so from a grandma 55mph speed, suddenly they go up to 80-90-100+mph...

BTW, I never go in a race contest with another driver. I drive fast, very fast, but if someone is faster than me, I have no problem to move over

I have an objection: I Usually drive faster that all (most) the cars and I constantly keep passing others, reason why it doesn't make sense to move right after I pass a car and 10 seconds later move to the left to pass another one...so I stay on the left BUT I CONSTANTLY CHECK MY MIRROR and if any car approaches from behind I not only move to the right, but I make sure they DON'T HAVE TO SLOW DOWN waiting for me to clear the lane....a mater of courtesy.

There is no number (60 or 120mph...or even 200mph) when is OK to stay on the left...a best approach of the situation is to be sure there is no car coming from behind and you're in its way

+1

Every once is a while someone is driving faster than me.

Happens most in bad weather.

10 seconds is not the issue, but at 30+ seconds you should have moved over.

Unless I am doing autobahn speeds, I see no reason to own the left lane.

Hehe, what is "autobahn" speed?...it always gonna be another guy who's gonna do "more autobahn" speed than you ...this is why i said, keeping an eye on the rear view mirror is the safest and most courteous way to drive.
