Now when driving the interstates of my home state. West Virginia. I gets rather annoying when you see a line of traffic, all in the left lane,doing the speed limit....with nothing in the right hand lane.

And its always people from Ohio.

Correction for omission.

For the Buckeyes.

"(1) The driver of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle proceeding in the same direction shall give an audible signal and pass to the left thereof at a safe distance and shall not again drive to the right side of the roadway until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle.

(2) Except when overtaking and passing on the right is permitted, the driver of an overtaken vehicle shall give way to the right in favor of the overtaking vehicle on audible signal and shall not increase the speed of his or her vehicle until completely passed by the overtaking vehicle.

Kinda hard for us to follow the law when you guys hang out in the o'l left lane.

Actually napster and reality it doesn't take too much of a brain to look in the rear view and see another vehicle that was no where near to being close to me rapidly closing the distance between myself and them.

And I do the speed limit.

And you can also watch them disappear quickly off in the distance once they have passed you.

Gee imagine that?

I love that they changed the speed limit on this road. I will be the first to say that I suffer from a mild case of road rage. I live about 6 miles out 550 and nothing is worse than someone going under the speed limit. Seriously people if you can drive the speed limit then you shouldn't be driving at all!!!

He had to be, Napster. In order to know their speed, he had to pace them. Otherwise, he's making stuff up again. It's far beyond time the Ohio speed limit was raised. Now if we can just get them to stay in the slow lane instead of hogging the fast lane all the time.
