"Because you're an asshole"? It's amazing how many problems would be solved if the first commandment was "Don't be a dickhead". Wouldn't even need any of the others...

Forget commandments or amendments. The world would be simpler if everyone had a good, basic sense of common sense...

If only common sense was common. :(

I joked about this with Starscream. Every time I head to a particular store, I run afoul of this. I also need to get in the left lane to turn left into the store. Last time, I had some one keep up with me to block me from getting into the lane.

I do a fair bit of highway driving getting to gigs and such, and the number of times I have to do weird things to get around some pokey dope in the left lane is scarily high. Of course, people also tend to merge WAY too early (like if there's construction coming up), when the most efficient way to do it is to use all lanes up to the point of the merge and then "zipper" into the open lane. But no, people are assholes and won't let you in, even though it's faster and safer. *sigh*

I love the tone of this video - that faster drivers (i.e. speeders) just *have* to keep changing lanes in dangerous fashion because what other choice to they have? Slowing down? Fuck that! Amirite?!

I drive a mobile crane truck and require a LOT of real estate to accelerate to pass on the highway. And some days it drives me absolutely batshit waiting for those fools camped out in the left lane going 0.005 Mph faster than the right lane. And they NEVER use the right lane, like that left lane is their private driveway and completely ignore the posted signs: "Left Lane For Passing Only". People like that should be shot with little balls of their own shit.

Jeff; no, you're not. When most of the traffic is doing 40 where the speed limit is 60, and some fuckstick is in the left lane doing 35, they need to get out of the way for people trying to use the road as it was intended. You sound like one of the campers that smugly sit in the left lane, claiming (against the law, as mentioned) that because you're doing the speed limit you belong there.

BookBitch; As with many things, stuff that involves people not being assholes is doomed to failure. Ideally, each car in the merge-into lane would allow one car ahead of them, and in the merge-from lane, only one car would try and fit into that space.

In practice, some people (me) merge early when space presents itself to avoid getting to the end and being blocked in, while others zoom to the end and then just shove their way in, making whoever they're cutting off, AND all the people behind them, have to slam on their brakes, thus closing off the spaces that other people would otherwise merge into.

Lane hoppers, my pet peeve. I saw a particularly brazen one and called him a very not nice name once. My mother turned to me and said he (who happened to be riding a motorcycle while weaving between lanes), is what my uncle refers to as an "Organ Donor". I think I laughed for a good minute at that.
