    Soooooo........

    Speed limit is 65 on a major four lane highway (2 lanes on each side). Light to moderate traffic.
    Vehicle A has cruise control (CC) set and running 73. Moves to "passing" lane to pass four vehicles with proper follow/social distancing over a ~1/8 of a mile whom are running ~70.

    And Vehicle A has passed two out of four vehicles, and is overtaking #3. Vehicle B comes up behind Vehicle A running 80 and "flashes" their lights.

    AND.....Vehicle A is supposed to break CC momentum and move to right lane just to appease Vehicle B who is doing 15 over speed limit?

    So, the law has just given priority to someone that is breaking the law (speeding 15+) more than another lawbreaker (speeding/passing lane violation)?

    Vehicle A was obeying the "passing" lane law, until Vehicle B came up behind them.

    In a lot of states, running 15mph+ over speed limit is grounds for the officer to confiscate driver's license of offender on the spot because careless & reckless could apply......

    So, if we add another variable to this hypothetical, then an officer is sitting beside the road and clocks Vehicle B doing 80 and subsequently observes Vehicle A in the "passing" lane passing vehicles, but not running as fast as Vehicle B was clocked, who gets the ticket? Who is the bigger danger? And that's why tickets are written, right? Danger.....?

    Because, you see, the one running 80 doesn't care/realize/know that Vehicle A was running over the speed limit before they got there and curses Vehicle A thinking they are just running the speed limit and mostly because they believe somebody is "in MY way".

    Oh...I will move over, but I will slow down to below the speed of the four cars and pull in BEHIND the first car in said line running ~70.
    I will piss in their cornflakes, before I obey that particular law.
    Give me dirty looks, look at me as you are passing, tell me I am number one, whatever. It's your blood pressure going up, not mine.

    YMMV

    none at the moment
    Maybe go with the flow of traffic . Too slow, you’re a danger / hazard on the road .

    Sounds like you drive like a self centered asshole like OP. Get out of the passing lane, slower traffic should stay right, go the speed limit, dont roll around with your highbeams on all the time.

    If everyone to you is an asshole, youre probably the asshole.

    Driving the speed limit in the passing lane is just being a shitting driver, its not a cruising lane.

    I drive my work and personal vehicles very differently. In my work truck, I'm almost always in the left lane, actually passing, and usually the fastest one in my immediate area. I have been surprised how quickly and often people have moved over before I get up on them. They usually stay in the right lane after. I pass, which is where they should've been to begin with since they weren't passing anyone.

    In my Taco, I drive very conservatively and am usually one of the slower cars out there, in the right lane. I have noticed it will stay in 6th gear more often if I stay below 65. I guess the aero drag falls off a cliff above that speed.

    I have intentionally been this guy. For a while there was an Acura suv the would tailgate me from the time I left my street until I was almost to work daily. Didn't matter if I drove at my normal pace (5+) or 15 over. Mind you this was at 4:30 am on a mix of suburban and country roads with plenty of options to take different routes, pass, etc.

    I quickly tired of this and decided to start a campaign of frustration. Some day's I would race in well over the limit. Others I was Mr. dead on the speed limit. Sometimes I would pull over and let them pass.

    Surprisingly they don't seem to follow me in anymore. o_O

    Saw a guy yesterday with a big walking stick. He was walking in the shoulder against traffic while poking his walking stick toward the vehicles in the right lane.

    In my humble opinion, methamphetamines is a key factor in poor driving on the roads today.

    Then after trying to be nice - you should drive 5mph and not allow them to pass.
