There's a lit sign on 826 heading west in Miami that reads.....
Let's hope and pray this catches on to the rest of the country.

There's been those signs posted on the Arizona Interstates for 30+ years. It's never made a whit of difference. State troopers WILL light you up if you are restricting traffic but other wise ignore you.

Just got back from Arizona, they're almost as bad as Mass-holes! I wouldn't count on those signs making a wad of difference. Every now and then I see on the local news in my neck of PA that cops are going to crack down on left lane slowpokes, and they never do.

Psha, you guys have no idea what it's like to deal with bad drivers until you've driven in California!

I usually pass people on the right. And I cringe every time.

Try to flash your highs to get someone to move over? Now they're your worst enemy and will tailgate/flash you once you go around them.

I ordered special glasses for driving at night - yellow antireflective lenses. Because at least 1/20 cars has its high beams on.

What are you talking about Tomas (the OP)? You know no one here reads, or can read those road signs. lol. What we have in Miami is convoy driving; we all go the same speed, three abreast across the highway.

If you are going the same speed as the motorist beside you, why not just drive in the same lane and allow other cars to pass?

I'm glad I don't live in any of those wonderful places where the average motorist's IQ is in the 40s.
