So just got back from vacation today, mostly I65. I really tried to not get pissed but I cant help it. I know you have all experienced the following but I wanted to rant. Basically WHY to the following:
Keep right except to pass. I did see a lot more of these signs recently, however I saw a bunch of the "slower traffic keep right" also. Pretty useless as most dolts going 73 in a 70 think "im not slower traffic" and therefore dont move. Jeez if people would just follow this rule...This is my #1 pet peeve. I want to start a media coverage event or something on this. Why dont people just do it???
Go with the flow. If you are doing 55 in a 70, you are going to cause an accident no matter what lane you are in. Period.
It amazes me how many people - with 2 or 3 lanes in my direction - stay in the far left 2 lanes, the right lane(s) completely open. WHY? I guess i should be glad they left a lane open to pass 100 of them but i dont get it.
The guy (gal) who stays in the left lane while 25 of us pass on the right, we give a dirty look, then pull quickly in front of him (her) on the left. But he (she) doesnt get it... I actually had one LLB in AL that looked up at me in the RVM, the pointed me at the right lane. All while we are passing a sign saying "keep right".
No one in front of me in the left lane, no one behind me. Im moving pretty good, i swear i get right there and instead of waiting 5 seconds for me to pass they decide to pull in front of me and go 71 in a 70.
Taking 5 minutes to pass a vehicle instead of just stepping on it for 10 seconds and getting it over with.
Attaching to the side of a semi. Not only is this rude as hell to block the lane, but it is dangerous as hell. They cant see you in their blind spot, a tire blowout is going right through your window, hell the guy may be tired, may have to maneuver, it's just stupid.
People stopping on on-ramps...
Theres more I'll add later. Frustrating as hell.
ADDED: the guy (gal) who cant pick a speed. Or speeds up just because you passed him (her). Had a guy for about 150 miles would go from 75-90 mph at random. if at that second he wanted to go 90, tailgaed me like hell. Of couse you let him by, goes back down to 75...
People who speed aimlessly. You would think if they see the car with the RD, trapster in the window, and CB antenna suddenly slow down or do a nose dive for no reason, they would take notice. Nope, they give me the dirty looks (yes I get over to the right).
