Get. Out. Of. My. Way.

As someone who is constantly stymied by slower drivers who tie up the left lane because they are:

1) Going the speed limit and that's perfectly fine for everyone. I like to call these people the Community Cops. I hope they all get eyeball headaches every afternoon. At 3:00.

2) People going 5 miles over the limit who think they are being dangerous while trying to pass someone.

3) People going 10 miles over the limit who think they are badass. These are usually college or high school kids in their giant trucks or SUVs who have no concept of other people. This group also includes hicks whose egos simply can not take the defeat of being passed on the freeway.

and finally...

4) People who get into the left lane then drive at exactly the same speed as the people in the right lane. These people I hate with the heat of a thousand suns.

Imagine my happiness when I found that in Washington and other states they are now fining people who drive too slow in the left lane. Or linger there.

Until the Lege can pass something similar, I'll be buying this.

Actually, it is already illegal to drive in the left lane unless you're passing on most Texas freeways. We just need to get the DPS to enforce it.

Well, that should be priority #1 for our leaders in the Lege:)

Of course, if DPS started enforcing the law about driving in the left lane, they might also enforce the one about driving 90.

Sure. And I'd be fine with the ticket.

I love writing checks!
