OK, Lets see where this goes..

Post your road rant of the day. I will include a poll but your rant is not limited to poll options.

My road rant of today is, left lane cruisers.

Someone was cruising along in the left lane on the highway, I approach them and they do not acknowledge, no signal to get over so I could pass. I flash my left turn to signal to them to get over. No one knows what that means so now I have to be a jerk and pass on the right.

As I am passing, I could see both the passenger and driver screaming at me though the window....

biggest road rant? those criminals that don't realize that going over the speed limit puts other lives in jeopardy~~right up there with bank robbers and child molesters.

Close second tailgaters and those idiots that pull right in front of a semi.

Yes. Speeding is just as bad as molesting a child. You are an f-ing moron

People that think that (a) they're so special that the traffic laws, especially speeding, don't apply to them and (b) simultaneously think that everyone else should obey the traffic laws that allow the speeders to speed, and NOT the traffic laws that get in the way of the speeders getting their fix.

As the magistrate explained~ child molesters put one child at a time in jeopardy~ speeders put groups as children at risk at a time~ and also tend to teach their own children by example that breaking laws is admissible.

No ~ I feel YOU are the moron.

It would have to be "no signal" followed closely by "you just littered." Cigarette butts are especially annoying given the drought situation where I live.

Why is "passing on the right", listed?

In every state with which I am familiar, it is legal to pass on the right, on multi-lane streets & highways.
Or...is the OP one of those people who mistakenly believes that passing on the right is not legal on multi-lane streets & highways?
