&gt; But I'm Driving The Speed Limit
&gt;
&gt; If lane courtesy is such a great concept and a win-win situation for
&gt; all highway users, why do some drivers refuse to embrace it?
&gt;
&gt; Failure to yield the left lane or taking actions that make it easy for
&gt; others to merge into traffic are often caused by nothing more sinister
&gt; than simple inattention and distraction. Excuses for deliberately
&gt; refusing to accommodate other drivers include: &quot;The left lane is
&gt; smoother. If I stay in the left lane the faster traffic in the right
&gt; lane doesn't have to pull out to pass me. I can see better in the left
&gt; lane.&quot; And the all time champion, &quot;I'm driving the speed limit and I
&gt; shouldn't have to move over for law breakers.&quot;
&gt;
&gt; Targeted education and enforcement will effectively address the
&gt; unconscious drivers, &quot;smooth laners&quot; and visually impaired. The &quot;it's
&gt; my road and as long as I drive the speed limit I can camp in the left
&gt; lane&quot; mentality is a greater challenge.
&gt;
&gt; From a very practical perspective, speed limits do not represent the
&gt; actual travel speeds on most highways. These limits are typically
&gt; based on arbitrary political numbers that have no relationship to
&gt; valid engineering based standards. As a result, a motorist doing &quot;the
&gt; speed limit&quot; in the left lane may be in serious conflict with the
&gt; prevailing traffic. This results in abrupt lane changes, erratic speed
&gt; changes, and no small amount of hostility.
&gt;
&gt; This is a classic example of how a poorly conceived public policy
&gt; (i.e. arbitrary speed limits) results in multiple unintended negative
&gt; consequences. Setting aside this conundrum, there are additional
&gt; reasons to always yield the left lane to faster traffic.
&gt;
&gt; Something as simple as speedometer error can result in a five-MPH or
&gt; greater difference in vehicle speeds, although both read the same
&gt; speed. The motorist seeking to pass in the left lane may be responding
&gt; to a family or health emergency. Another possibility is that faster
&gt; left lane vehicles are preceding an emergency vehicle and are seeking
&gt; an opportunity to merge right. The bottom line is that no valid
&gt; purpose is served by blocking the left lane when other vehicles wish
&gt; to pass.

What about as an anti-JLEDI practice...?

See the .sig for answer....

&gt;Failure to yield the left lane or taking actions that make it easy for

If they would just KRETP to begin with, they wouldn't need to, &quot;yield
the left lane.&quot;

&gt;others to merge into traffic are often caused by nothing more sinister
&gt;than simple inattention and distraction. Excuses for deliberately
&gt;refusing to accommodate other drivers include: &quot;The left lane is
&gt;smoother.

Really? I hadn't noticed that.

&gt;If I stay in the left lane the faster traffic in the right
&gt;lane doesn't have to pull out to pass me.

&lt;snort beer&gt;

&gt; I can see better in the left lane.

Yeah, right....

&gt;&quot; And the all time champion, &quot;I'm driving the speed limit and I
&gt;shouldn't have to move over for law breakers.&quot;

They must have interview our very own SFB for that steamer...

All they have to do is look for the slow fucks in the left lane.
