    Blockers in left lane....have a ticket.

    It's about time. Drivers need to become aware that they aren't the only idiot on the road and MOVE over and get out of the passing lane. Common sense: Through lane (right) is used unless you are passing, when you use the "passing" or left lane.

    The driver should have been in one of the right lanes.

    Ticket deserved.

    Two miles under? That is total bull crap. The cop was just being a jerk.

    I am failing to see why she got a ticket. She did not break any laws. The posted speed limit is a maximum, not minimum. Also, it is not a passing lane. I specifically asked a cop this when I heard someone go off at a grocery store about "the ##### who wouldn't go above 60 in the passing lane". It is merely a second lane, not a passing or fast lane. People should not have to choose a lane to travel in to accomodate those who want to break traffic laws, in my honest opinion. If you want to speed, find your way around those that want to drive safely.

    As far as I know Md does not have a keep right except to pass law. They should but since they do not she was not breaking any law. Just being an inconsiderate driver.

    How was she being inconsiderate by driving 2 miles per hour under the maximum speed limit?

    I don't think she should have gotten a ticket. I think she should have been shot.

    That's what I thought, so I'm curious what exactly she got ticketed for.
