That's what I thought too.
But I'll find out when I get one. Or I'll find out from the 5-0 that it's not legal to put it on my windshield (VA).

I need one of these badly. My entire drive to work (45 minutes, mostly interstate) is packed to the brim with people parking their asses in the left lane, not letting anyone pass.

dont ppl know its a passing lane? Or unofficially the fast lane. I find sometimes on the 400, its faster to stay in the right lane.

I watched the video link on there: Video: A Meditation on the Speed Limit and wasn't surprised at what I saw. Driving 55 and blocking the freeway was the dangerous part of the experiment. I hate when people block the road.

Seriously - for a while I thought it was just thanks to all the idiots we have in Florida, but in my travels I've realized they're everywhere. Is it really so hard to move over one lane so people don't have to slalom around you?

I know the whole thing about everyone whos faster than you is a maniac, and everyone who is slower is a grandma, but going below the speed limit on a freeway that isn't bumper to bumper or with the flow is quite dangerous. Best to go minimal 60, or w/e the limit is, and in the right hand lane. I hate passing transport trucks in the rain, soo much water kicking up. My mom hates driving in that crap too :(

It is illegal to cruise on the left lane. But there is little to no enforcement on this one from LEO.
They rather go after you, who is getting road rage from that guy parked in front of you on the left lane.
Law enforcement is very selective of what they want to enforce.

PA it is also illegal, you are only suposed to be in the left most lane for I think it is 2 miles or less (maybe it is 1 mile). I don't think that applies to 2 lane highways or less, though it might.

In general I avoid the left lane unless I am passing people. The way I look at it I am ususally in the bottom 1/3 of drivers in terms of speed, so I am not about to slow traffic by being in the middle lane. In general I stay in the right lane unless traffic is heavy, then in the middle just so I am not getting in the way of people merging or having to hit the gas or the brakes to stay out of their way.

The way I look at it, my 3-7 over is decent enough in any lane except the left (and as I said I try to stay as far right as I can most times). What I HATE though is when someone is up by butt tailgating me. Especially when there is no traffic. go the hell around me, I don't care if you want to draft, get around me, being 1/2 car length off my bumper when I am doing 62 in a 55 in the far right lane isn't resonable, especially when there are 3 other cars on the highway in sight.

Oh, I also hate people who tail gate the hell out of me when I am in the left lane passing people. If I am doing 70 in a 65 and I am passing everyone in the right hand lane who are doing 60 because they are retarded then deal with it. I could careless that you want to be doing 85, but there are plenty of other people like me just trying to get around the SLOW traffic in the right lane. I'll pull out of your way as soon as there is a reasonable break in traffic in that right lane and not a moment sooner, so BACK OFF!

i dont get road rage. sorry if i came off that it ticks me off. I rarely run into it. It can be dangerous though as I said. Cause it really is a passing lane. When the traffic is more buzy heading up north, i usually just stay in the right, as i find its safer in general.
