Who taught these people how to drive? You don't just camp out in the left lane. If cars are passing you in the right lanes, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE LEFT LANE!

I can't agree more, but pick on all slow drivers no matter what lane they drive in. The is a maximum posted speed and a minimum speed. Just once I'd like to see a major crackdown on those people who do *EXACTLY* the speed limit no matter what lane they are in, no matter how far traffic is backed up behind them.
Maybe I misunderstood your post but what is wrong with doing *EXACTLY* the speed limit in non-passing lanes? With the exception of the far left lane for passing, I am going to do *EXACTLY* the speed limit unless you pay my ticket!

I saw it with a car pulled over on my trip East and then again going west today. It looks like a black SS with tined window and no markings. It had strobes in the back window behind the windshield as well as in the grill....

I'm guessing they are going to nab a ton of speeders with it!
I saw this Po-Po for the first time last Saturday, southbound 35 to 410 westbound. Sinister looking car. No Police markings or even "Exempt" plates. No spotlight either. Plain "steelie" rims, dark tint, and saw the computer and shot gun as he slowly passed me. Saw him again today on southbound 281 by the Airport. I'm glad to see our local men in blue trying to help SA keep our roads a bit safer from all the "transplants" that do not obey traffice laws. SA used to be a pretty laid back and not so rushed city. Now, you really have to pay attention to all the other "locos" on the road. Signals? What are those? Red Light, Stop sign? Do they apply to "me"? Speed limit? What is that? Our men in blue do drive on our streets as civilians, so yes, they know where to look for the "violaters" Go SAPD men in blue!!!!

The shotgun? How did you see that? Are you driving a lifted pickup?

Did things really used to be more relaxed around here? Seems like everyone is in a rush around here, especially during my commute times. The rush seems on par with the Washington D.C. area.
