It depends on the highway. Some highways are so crowded that if you don't ride in the middle or left lanes you're stopping every hundred feet letting people in or out (I'm talking about you Rte 17!).

No, YOU get over. You're a hypocrite. Speeding as much as YOU want = It's all good

Speeding MORE than you = too fast

Give me a break! If you're going faster than the person behind you, get over.

Aaaaay I gotsta show a little attituuude, y'no. Im from Jerzy! (said in my best goomba/ dice clay voice)

Besides, I didnt say TOO fast, just meant that I dont fit the profile of the slowpoke in the left lane. I also said, Im only there when im pasing. If the middle is clear, I stay in the middle. Point is, I agree that if you want to drive slow, stay right.

You did say too fast. You said anyone going 30 over needs to go around you. You should be in the middle lane if they are going faster than you.

Thats where i am confused can you tell me where in the law it's says to stay in the middle, or where it says "if you drive slow" stay right?

Worse than this problem is when you're in the left lane going as fast as the traffic ahead of you permits - i.e. the left lane is moving the fastest but is only going 60-65 because it's crowded - and some joker comes up behind you tailgating and flashing his lights. That's when that person learns that I know how to slow down and not let him pass, at all.

WOW Sorry didn't mean to upset you, i will have to check with you prior to my next post.

How do you become dumber for reading the law? I would think the opposite most people have no idea that its against the law to drive in the middle or left lane and thats part of the problem.

How many points do i need for God to have mercy on my soul?

That's just pi$$-poor driving.

There's a difference between "driving" and "operating a motor vehicle". Most in the US do the latter, at best.
