When I learned how to drive everybody drove in the right hand lane . Now 90% of the drivers drive in the left hand lane . They drive in this lane right up to they'er turn . This turn usually is to they'er right . They then think everybody is to stop so they can turn . Why dont they get in the right hand lane before their turn so nobody is in their way . These same drivers can't get their car to do the speed limit for some reason . Can somebody please tell me when they changed the rules ? Yes I'M old

I get so freakin mad, When you have someone driving the speed limit in the left lane. They usually have a tendecy to move when the see nothing but ford grill in their rear view mirror. I have noticed that it is usually 2 types of drivers that do this but not going to say in fear of getting a time out. Oh and they are usually jacking their jaws on the phone most of the time also.

There's a road full of inconsiderate (or stupid as the case may be) drivers on the road...and there are a bunch of things they do that could give a case of road rage. I really hate it when you have a right turn ahead so you go ahead and get in the right lane prior to getting there. Then traffic buzzes by you and everyone that got in the right lane to wait their turn has to slam on brakes because these self rightous jerks then cut into the right lane like they have the right of way.

It infuriates me when people clog the roadways. It's a lack of common courtesy, and just plain ignorance. If you're getting passed on the right, move over until you're not.

I guess they dont know the left lane is for PASSING ONLY, Kentucky has signs saying it all over there hi ways. TN need to take note .....this MIGHT help, but its doubtful \:D

I once took 10 hits of LSD drove in the left lane all the time and wouldn't cause an accident in 50 years because I use NOTHING not even the radio, and guests in the car are most certainly not welcome to TRY to engage me. Also, note that left lane driving at night is NOT ok. I've flown by horses silently at night going 70mph over hills in the left lane being rode by ppl that seen my headlights way off at 2am and decided to stay on the 2-lane????? Scratching my head...

DEFINITELY Arkansas.........

Kansas actually prohibits driving in the left lane unless you're actively passing. Not sure how well they enforce it these days, but when it was enacted a couple years ago, the KS troopers were RUTHELESS in enforcing it.

They're still there. Nobody pays attention to them, despite the fact they are WHITE signs with black letters, bounded by a black box....AKA: "THIS SIGN INDICATES STATE LAW"

There's been several times where I'm in the right lane, and someone is taking their sweet time turning right into a parking lot or a street. C'mon, turn, already!

I passed one woman who was driving (too slow for me), smoking a cigarette AND talking on the cell phone!

Or the one lane of the interstate is being closed for several miles and they warn you 2 miles then 1 mile, then so many feet ahead the left lane will be closed and merge into the right one, but you still have the people who fly by everyone and expect to be let into the line. I like to mess with them if possible and I'll speed up or slow down just to keep them from butting in so to speak and if they do get behind me, I make sure they are only going the speed limit in that zone even if no one is ahead of me.

You may laugh but one of the quaint things I like in TN is the drivers. They always waive to me with their index finger and in my backwoods area rarely use a turn signal. "Daddy, do you know that guy?" "No, son, I don't know him".."Why did he waive at you?"...the difference in Michigan country and Tennessee backwoods.

I broke down in my old truck and 3 people stopped to help out of 5 cars that went by (I'm thinking those other two had out of state plates haha). One of them took me and my son to my cabin, waited while I got a new fuel filter and a wrench, drove us back, waited until I got it fixed and started, then followed us home to make sure we made it.

Compared to parts of Michigan it is just a relief...
