Also if you plan on going 70 try to get there by the bottom of the ramp instead making 3 people slow down to 55 and then speed up to 70 after merging.

My truck only goes 70 on flat or downward sloping terrain. Get behind me and practice your patience while I struggle up an on ramp.

I can't fault people that don't have the acceleration, but California seems to be especially bad about this. Far too many times, I've seen people in cars and pickups stopped at the end of the ramp while waiting for a gap to merge into.

Just for your consideration - I used to drive a busted ass 4cyl sedan secondhand from my parents. I could put the pedal into the floor and 55 was about the best I'd be doing by the end of that on ramp...

The car is not the problem. I believe @M346 is referring to drivers who move into the left lane prior to achieving the requisite speed.

If you stay in the right lane, the only problem would be if there are already cars in both lanes and you force the ones in the right lane in front of those in the left. You can try to minimize this case by staying on the shoulder or reducing your already low acceleration to allow the slightly faster drivers in the right lane to pass you. Sometimes, though, it's just tough noogies and there's nothing you can do about the inordinate timing of it all.

The ultimate power is with the people in this regard but the justice system fucking won't let juries know they have the power to do what they want and I was a teacher for 7 years it's not something they want to get out.. I have fallen victim to this in our injustice system and it's sign I will never be selected for jury duty they see white educated male over 30 and prosecution instantly marks you off.

Can't enforce the traffic laws, they might find out the offender is here illegally.

be glade you dont have toll roads like I do, see we have an electronic toll pay system, you just have to slow down from say 50 to 25-30 to safely pass the toll booth and not piss off the toll company but people love to come to a complete stop inorder to read the led sign that says "toll paid" or they are on their fucking phone and end up in the wrong lane so they BACK UP to go to another lane, one of the leading causes of traffic in my state are god damn toll plazas.

I'm 100 percent ok with this.. if I saw someone pull a bazooka out and blast some asshat going 58 in the 70 lane I would do a drive by high five them and throw interference if the cops tried to go after them.. I think there is an unknown or underreported amount of accidents caused by some idiots driving to slow and scared.

Left lanes are not a 70 lane, they are passing lanes.

If you're going 90 in the left lane and the guy behind you wants to pass, you better move the fuck over to the right and let him, that's what that lane is for - temporarily passing people going slower.

I copy paste what the common definitions for a 3 lane highway.. if I'm going 80 and a guy comes up on me I'm either speeding up or moving over.. I'm not gonna sit in the lane.. but its perfectly fine t9 drive 75 in the left lane if it's open.. these idiots on here were making it sound like the left lane should be left open for passing only which is the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard.

Passing-lane campers can be ticketed in a few states.

It's called the PASSING LANE.

SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT.

I don't like tailgaters, either. I don't do that to anyone unless its some asscock driving slow in the passing lane.

I don’t tail gate often. If I do, it’s obvious I have waited 10 minutes for you to speed up or pull over.

As someone who just got home from work driving 50 miles, I can’t agree more. Theres days I just want to pull my gun out from under my seat and put some holes in their cars

I normally drive 5 hours to get home on Fridays. The first hour is under 30 bumper to bumper with faggets doing 90 degree turns to get off or every so often a fag just making a new exit ramp over the green.

Fuck Dallas!

The thought crossed my mind before. Believe me. I live in a rural place and its a single lane road for a few miles before I get to the interstate. Back in the old days if you got behind someone slow, they would generally pull over and let you go around. Not anymore. You're stuck behind some mothafucker doing 15mph all the way. Selfish fucks.

Oh I know. I have about a 15 mile stretch on a 2 lane divided highway. Same shit everyday, there is always at least a couple of idiots that stay in the left lane no matter what and make you pass them on the right. I’ve seriously considered making signs to put up along the highway that say to move the fuck over

In front of my house when I turn out it’s 45. I’ve been fucked by people doing 25 too many times.

Driving is counter intuitive. Used to hang out with my dad's buddy, bullet bob. Guy used to be a helluva driver. Took me for my first lessons behind the wheel. I've never forgotten the one piece of advice he gave me. "If in doubt, speed up."

I've avoided so many dangerous situations and accidents simply by speeding up. God bless you bob, you made the best fucking chili.

He used a couple tablespoons of oyster sauce in his chilli--made it really savory.
