    Staying in the left lane, can also attract attention for a ticket. As told to me by leo (at a ticket reduction class), people in left lane will get a ticket faster than the right, even at same speed.

    one thing i hate those is when you and someone behind you are passing a car on the right. then you go to get back over but before you know it the guy behind is passing you on the right. they just couldn't wait the one second for you to get back over

    [QUOTE="OldManTan";6683559]I agree and disagree. If you are holding up someone behind you, move over. If you are keeping up with the flow, than its fine imo. Some people forget that it is a passing lane. So move the F*ck over so I can pass you. :)[/QUOTE]

    this. I’m usually going a little faster than most around here. i stay in the middle lane if i can. but if it’s 2 lane i’ll stay in the left. mostly because i’m passing the damn trucks. but i also watch my mirrors really well and if i see someone coming up on me i get over as soon as i can. even if i have to speed up 2 or 3mph to pass another car/truck. I don’t care if someone is in the left lane really. as long as they move the hell over for faster traffic, and not make them slow down or pass on the right.

    also in the state of TN it is illegal to do 10 or 15 under the posted speed limit. and yes i have seen people doing that on the interstate and have seen them get pulled over.

    Pretty much what most people said, I'll pop into the left lane to pass a few cars, but I'll usually get on over when I can, unless either there's nobody else on the road, or if I'll just have to get in the left lane soon anyways and there's nobody who wants to pass me.

    this pisses me off. even when you flash your lights or beep the horn they don’t move!!

    also sometimes i think common sense is not so common any more.

    I hate slow drivers on the left lane. Don't they know it's against the law to drive slow on the left lane.

    The absolute worst is the douchecanoe that's in the fast lane...then when trying to pass them on the right they speed up so you can't get in front of em. I want to punch that guy several times in the face.

    Too thick skulled for high beams...I blast em with my 20" led and pass em while they rub their eyeballs.

    i lived in germany for three years, and the best thing about the autobahn is that you can only drive in the left lane for passing, you may get pulled over for just cruising in it. 100000000000000% more efficient.

    I like the signs posted in Texas that say "keep right except to pass". Here the signs say "slower traffic keep right". Since I not slower, according to me I should stay left, right?

    How about 3+ lanes where do you hang out? I use the middle lanes since I'm usually through traffic in those areas.

    I HATE left lane drivers. My wife is one and I am trying to break her of it. I fuss at her everytime I ride with her. She starts off in the right lane and goes to pass someone but DOESN'T get back over!!! lol

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    I'm a slow (and I mean slow) driver in the right lane.

    No wonder I was able to get though TN so fast when I was stationed in GA. :D

    These people in Okieland are something else. They will hang out in the left hand lane going 5 under and then cross 4 lanes of traffic to get off the interstate.
