PSA: Left Lane is a Passing Lane

I haven’t taken a drivers test in 15 years so maybe just maybe they’ve added new rules. Hell I break road rules every so often (snicker) because sometimes that “No U Turn” sign isn’t helping. However, driving below the speed limit in the left lane and driving slower then the speed of traffic in the left lane is UNACCEPTABLE EVERRRRRRRR. Last time I checked the left lane was the passing lane, not the just sit there lane. In fact if there’s more then one lane on a highway so do us all a favor and just chill in the right lane UNLESS you’re ready to pass someone. For the life of me I don’t understand why people are so rude to think they can SIT in the left lane while people are passing to the right.

Maybe it’s because I’m in my car in highway traffic for more than an hour a day and feel the frustration of those inconsiderate people who hog the left lane when they’re not passing anyone and god forbid are driving below the speed limit.

To the idiot dude in the Jeep Cherokee who hogged the left lane going slower then the speed of traffic, whom I passed on his right this morning at 7:20 AM on GW Parkway I’d like to say VA TE FAIRE!

Clearly I need to find a job downtown. This commute from DC to Tyson’s Corner is driving me bananas.

You should make a sign and put it on a stick like a church fan. Then whenever someone isn't driving properly, you can show them the sign.

I second Hostess' idea. I don't know whose drivers are worse - Cali or the DC urrrrea but I hate them both. :-)

Left is the passing lane for all forms of transport. That means when you at Bart, stand on the right and walk on the left. It drives me wacky when toursits stand on the left side of the escaltor and block the path of people trying to get somewhere.

I see this is a nationwide epidemic! It's bad here in California too - and drives me bananas!

I'm with the church fan idea. LOL

That is the truth. People in Atlanta do the same BS.
