    Interestingly American cars are designed to be driven safer in the right lane. Mirror placement, blind spot, ability to avoid incidents by using the shoulder AND most importantly... the Mr. Magoo driving school proponents can all have their own lane.

    So I looked up the various laws here:

    State "keep right" laws

    I like VA: " requires vehicles in the left lane to yield to faster traffic; State Police say this applies even when faster traffic is speeding"

    Being inconsiderate is an understatement when you are actively obstructing traffic at 55 mph - 65 mph. We have gotten in the habit of letting the government decide what actions are permissible and which are not, instead of using our common sense.
    I agree the law sound be changed but then again I hate that we need laws to prevent people from being inconsiderate.

    Ok, so if this ticket is a perfect fine, normal, thing to occur why does everyone suppose it made the news?

I swear I have dreams about simply pit manueving losers like you and send you careening into the woods like a cue ball off my Humvees bumper. But then again, I havent taken my medication today yet. In all seriousness, just move over and stop being an inconsiderate ass.
    You sound like you shouldn't drive at all.

    Why should we make laws to accomodate speeders?

Go take your meds and have a nice day.

    Well I live in the real world where people actually speed from time to time for whatever reason. I dont really consider doing 65 on Rt. 4 a horrendous example of unsafe driving. Actually, 55 in the fast lane is probably more detrimental to your health. That being beside the fact, there are alot of things you probably shouldnt HAVE to do in your daily life, but isnt it alot easier to simply move to the right. I swear some of these people are either intentionally slowing traffic or so oblivious to their surroundings they shouldnt have a license in the first place. I need James Bond rocket launchers.

    Nope definately should not be on the road if you want to blow people up that get in your way.

    It's not about laws to accommodate speeders, it's about protecting everyone. We already fine people who speed, but since speed differential is extremely dangerous you need to ensure people aren't operating on the opposite side of the spectrum. Driving under impeding etc.

    Contrary to what you may believe, in a 50mph zone you are just as dangerous at 40 As you are at 60.
    All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day - Mr. J

    I live in that same world. I know that people speed every day. I see jackasses pass 2 or 3 cars at a time IN THE RAIN on a solid double line on Route 6 on a regular basis. I just wish that people would set their alarm clocks a few minutes earlier or leave their house a few minutes earlier and stop flying down the road like bats out of hell.
