I drive on a main road straight into town to work every morning. It ends up as a four lane road with plenty of traffic lights and a 45 mph speed limit, but coming from my house, it starts as a two lane road with no lights and a 55 mph speed limit, where, of course, most people drive at least 60 mph.
Well, the other day, I'm driving into town and two cars feel the need to create a moving barricade in front of me, at 50 mph. I'm sure everyone has had this happen.
So, three things.
- If you're not going to drive the speed limit, stay in the right hand lane.
- If someone really is going just a tad slower and you want to pass them, PASS THEM ALREADY!
- When you see me behind you for 5 minutes, have some common courtesy! I mean, it's bad enough that you're completely blocking the road, but you're doing it 5 mph below the speed limit, which is not acceptable.
