Try Dallas Traffic during rush hour, same thing lol

And there's a guy not too far from me that Flies a Texas flag. But the thing is I'm not sure if he's got it confused with the North Carolina flag.

Woah I never realised they were so similar! That's the first time I've seen a NC flag.

Last night I was driving home from church on I-40, then as I merged on to I-74 I noticed that someone was just right on my bumper. I normally drive in the right lane, at the speed limit or no more than 5 MPH above speed limit. Thing is, the left lane was WIDE open, nobody was in this lane, why keep tailgating me as if you were wanting me to get out of your way... when there's a lane specifically for overtaking "slower" traffic? Just needed to vent....
I like kicking the cruise off when that happens ......... they eventually move over

That is always a good time to check how well your brakes are working. :)

Yes! The first time I saw his flag I told my partner that our new neighbour must be from Chile! Then I realised it was Texas :P

The only thing worse than a tailgater in the right lane on the highway is someone being tailgated in the left lane on the highway.

Tailgating in the left lane.... did they flash their headlights to signal they intend to pass?

If someone needs to flash you in the left lane to pass, you're already an asshole.

The only thing flashing does to these people is get them to line up with someone on the right and then match their speed to them (because their mother was a whore who didn't raise them right).

Depends on how fast you're going. If the passer is doing 95 in a 65, who's the asshole?

In that case both are bonafide assholes. Both are a menace to society.
Often times I can go 10 over the speed limit, and someone will fly by on the right doing at least 30 over the speed limit. Some of these people don't understand that the speed limit still applies in the left lane.

I once saw someone get pulled over doing this precise thing while I was being a middle lane dweller. I slowed the F down after that. Almost regretted not wearing brown pants that day.

It's safer for everyone if the slower speeders keep right and let the faster speeders pass on the left.

Thus the signal, "I intend to pass"
