Self-Justice for Left Lane Campers
Any of you deliver your own punishment to those a-holes that sit in the left lane at a 65 mph pace?

If Im not in a rush with a slow day on the roads, I’ll pass on the right, switch to the left in front of them and slow down gradually to make them change lanes. Then I’ll speed up. If they switch back, I’ll rinse and repeat for a bit.

My favorite though is on rainy days. After passing on the right, I’ll switch lanes in front of them in an effort to tire spray the bastard. Usually they get the point and change lanes. If not, I get joy out of seeing them switch to the “high” wiper setting.

You shouldn’t be on the roads if things like this bother you so much.

Good way to cause a wreck. You're a bigger problem than they are.

No. I do like to go a few below the speed limit in the left lane, then match speed with people trying to pass on the right

To be fair, the left lane cruisers are the ones causing the wrecks.

Speed rarely causes accidents. Inconsiderate/oblivious drivers who force people to change lanes are the reason most crashes happen. Of course, those people are never held accountable and generally have no idea they're causing a problem.

"I wanna go faster but I'm gonna slow down so I can frick with this guy."

Sound logic.

I try to run them off the road but since it’s usually Asian women they don’t notice my efforts

Damn, bunch of left lane drivers in this thread. Props to you OP. Frick all these driving slow in the left lane on purpose fricktards. The law specifically advises slower traffic to keep in the right lane

That’s a whole lot of words when “I’m a douchebag” would convey the exact same message.

Work smarter, not harder. Douche.

I keep to the right lane. If you need to go faster, pass me dammit. Don't tailgate 4 inches from my bumper thinking that'll make me go faster. It won't.

Last summer, an Indiana state trooper made news for pulling over one of these nimrods.

Fox News article

quote:

“I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.” Wheeles wrote. “Again...if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.”

I hate left lane campers as much as the next guy, but two wrongs don't make a right.

They won't get the message that what they're doing is wrong. They'll just think you're an a-hole.

Yeah, force. When I've got my cruise set at the flow of traffic, and you're in the left lane traveling slower than the surrounding traffic, guess what that forces me to do?

Either brake unnecessarily, or change lanes, or both. Both are dangerous.

Here's an educational video that explains this for you and the rest of those who struggle to understand why their inconsiderate driving habits is not only rude, but extremely dangerous:

LINK

ETA: An interesting side note is the way this looks from the air. Every traffic jam that I've ever seen from the air (assuming there is no accident or inclement weather), has been caused by slow moving traffic in the left lane forcing braking and lane changes (and subsequently more braking). Chain reaction of brakes. All because you don't give a shite about anyone else but yourself.
