The only times I drive in the left lane is passing, or if there is no one behind me and the right lane is garbage...I watch my mirrors and move to the right when traffic does approach though. I hate left lane asshates as much as anyone, but the irate speeders are a lot more fun to debate with...so violent n chit...
Yeah, I did. I didn't finish the post. I'm dumb.

There was a little town in Florida that got national exposure for their speed traps, giving folks a ticket for 1 and 2 mph over the limit....Florida changed the law just for them to where they could only write a speeding ticket for 6 mph, and above, a posted limit. Technically they could write a ticket for failure to obey a posted sign, but evidently there is no points taken for those, and the fine wasn't worth the hassle of them writing the ticket...
That's Waldo on route 301. That didn't stop them from finding ways to ticket people. Here's what they're currently doing: http://www.speedtrap.org/city/2176/Waldo

I've passed through there several times, and drive a little less than the posted limits (in the right lane of course )...rarely have I been through there without seeing at least one pulled over, and never without seeing at least one officer, regardless of the time day.

The other town just up the road is dang near as anal too...

Eek

My pet peeve? The semiconscious drivers that I just passed 60 seconds ago, who pull over into the left lane beside me at the next stop light. Did you not notice I'm going faster than you?

It's OK if they wanna wring 'em out, that I can appreciate.

But usually they just don't have a clue. Taking up space.

despicable bunch...

trust me, it is point less. You can think of this discussion on the site as being infected by a virus. "Ignore this user" is your only way out. This user will invade EVERY topic on the site, and eventually will be banned.

What is interesting about all these cultural/communication behaviors, is that no matter how cliché many of them are, more often than none they are very reflective of a given group, society, country, culture...
This is not the same thing as a stereotype, where one says: "all Americans are..." As opposed to; when placed in this situation, and facing this decision, Italians are more likely to behave this way, compare to Chinese who are more likely to behave that way (when faced with the same decision/situation). This include things like uncertainty avoidance, low/high tolerance to ambiguity, face saving behavior, individualism vs collectivism...

For anyone interested in sociology, communications, human behaviour... these concepts provide a lot of reasons/justifications as to why we are the way we are, and why for so many of us it is difficult to change a behavior or habit.

What is key in my mind is awareness, which often translate to courtesy.

Nothing to do with the culture. Problem is Driving Ed in USA. I traveled many countries in Western and Eastern Europe and Middle east. Many different cultures live there, but It is well known rule that you drive in the right and pass on the left. Everyone knows it, and everyone does it. Peiod.
