    I am assuming here based on the article she was impeding traffic. I cannot stand it when people ride my bumper to get around someone driving to slow in the left...that affects me. And yes I consider both types of drivers in this scenario inconsiderate.

    My guess is she was probably blocking up traffic. I know it frustrates me quite a bit when there is a car in the left lane pacing a car in the right lane, especially when they aren't even driving at the speed limit.

    Not illegal, just rude.

    You road ragers, I swear....





    I got stuck behind a rolling road block going up to Hughesville last Saturday. As I started getting impatient and thinking cusswords, I distinctly heard Aps laughing his ass off.

    It's called impeding the normal flow of traffic. I know you all don't really understand how that works around here because its a common practice, but in many other states you get a ticket pretty quick for this stuff.

    Texas and I want to say Oklahoma have that law, and they will indeed ticket you. My daughter got one.

    I agree, it was rather inconsiderate. However it doesn't bother me at all to turn my wheel a bit to the right go past her and turn the wheel back to the left a bit. Maybe that really stresses some people out or is physically dificult for them. Not really sure.

    Someone should not have to drive the speed limit. That speed limit is set at a maximum based on safety standards for that portion of the road. If someone wants to drive the maximum or speed, they can find their way around the car or slow their ass down. But, that's just the way that I feel. I know that I get damn sick of people riding my bumper because I choose to drive 55 mph in a 55 mph zone when I have kids in the van and would rather not have increased insurance rates because some jackass is in a rush and is trying to push me up the road.

    It would be one thing if she was going 45, but she was going 63 and the ticket was ignorant. She was impeding people from speeding, including the cop.
