Slow Driving in the Fast Lane

10 Aug

Outta the way!

Outta the way!

Yes more drive time bitching! 😀

I remember in years past when you were behind someone that was driving slow in the fast lane they were either drunk, stoned, or just in their own little world.  Well I suppose there is one other possibility.  They just thought you kids are driving too fast and dagnabit!  they are just going to slow you down to the speed limit!

No it’s true.  I had a conversation with an otherwise very kind and caring older man about this subject.  I told him about the people driving the speed limit (a.k.a. SLOW!) in the fast lane and his position was one of he didn’t like people driving over the speed limit.  So there are those type of people out there and you might not even suspect them!  But I digress!

Each and every time I get behind some slow driver in the fast lane they are on A CELL PHONE!  Oh my God people!  We know it’s an important call and all, and I don’t fault you for driving and talking, but can’t you do it in the inside lane?  This is just one more reason I have to get that 130 db air horn for my Jeep.  Wait I smell some funny videos coming.

Remember it is your responsibility to get out of the way of traffic if you are in the fast lane.  You don’t believe me?  Ask a police/deputy sheriff.  Also remember it isn’t your responsibility to slow those young hoodlums down, that’s the polices job.  Besides you don’t really know what’s going on on with that speeding driver do you?  It’s always possible they are rushing to the hospital because of an ill loved one.  Of course they could just be in a hurry so they don’t miss kick off! 😀

Everyone knows, or should, their limitations.  If you can’t drive and talk on the cell phone at the same time, DON’T.

Come to think of it where did all those drunks, and stoned drivers go?  Hmmmm must be due to the crack down of “don’t drink and drive”!  Maybe there should be a fast lane cell talker campaign.

    So this is a new one, and I’ve been driving for years. I got behind one of those pregnant roller skates (mini cooper). A girl, who was busy doing what I could only describe as “bailing water” out the driver’s side window.

    I’m not quite sure what she was doing, as I didn’t see any water, but at a regular interval (every couple of seconds) I would see her hand exit the window and retract. I don’t spend a lot of time gawking in people’s cars because that would put me in the same category of people that I’m complaining about.

    I did notice a large plastic cup in the center console. I suspect she was eating sunflower seeds and throwing out the hulls. Still it wasn’t distracting enough to her when she signaled and pulled into the right hand lane at the exact same I was.

    Undeterred she just kept bailing that water! Yep air horn, definitely an air horn.

    Only people who are either very selfish and/or very stupid, drive slower in the left lanes of the freeway.
