A big part of the issue is that California drivers fail to yielded to faster moving traffic. For some insane reason a ton of California drivers have an attitude of “if you think you’re getting by me you have another thing coming” to the point where they will go slow as a slug but then speed up if you attempt to pass(on the right no less, which you shouldn’t have to do).

There’s no where that exemplifies this more than on the 15 between Glen Helen and Las Vegas, both ways. Why the hell people wont move to the right when they are driving under say 75-80 mph, you got me. There are few things stupider. This phenomenon doesn’t exist anywhere else in the western US. You hit the 10 fwy in Arizona and everyone moves to the right if you are driving faster.

Another place it’s TERRIBLE is on the 110 fwy southbound fast lane approaching and going under the 105. For reasons unknown certain people LOVE driving 45-55 mph there and absolutely REFUSE to move to a slower moving lane.

Here’s a clue...if someone is tailgating you, move to the right. It doesn’t matter what you think their motives are. California driving laws dictate that you yield to faster moving traffic. There is no speed stated. So if someone want to drive faster than you, you should let them go by.

In case you did not know, California do not have stay to the right unless passing law. As for moving over when getting tailgate, that is not going to happen. Instead i am going to hit my wiper spray and force you to back off. If i am going 70 and you are tailgating me, i will slow down to 60 and stay there.

I agree. I have never onced tailgated someone because I wanted to. I simply just want to go around. I assume it's the same for most of course it's all about the ego though.

You don’t have to stay to the right. You just have to move to the right until faster moving traffic passes you.

Btw congrats on being part of the problem.

What makes YOU so special that you assign to yourself the right to play cop and impede the flow of traffic?

If you want to deal with aggressive drivers try driving around Las Vegas sometime, but you may not survive it!

I am not impeding the flow of traffic, i am following the speed limit law. I am under no obligation to make it easier for you to violate it.
