The Left Lane Is For Passing Only!

I consider myself a pretty laid-back guy, but there are a few things in this world that drive me crazy. One of them is people who drive slow in the left lane.

I just made the trek across the state of Washington (from Spokane to Seattle), because my mom and nephew are both celebrating birthdays this weekend (I’m going to visit them…not running away from them). It takes me about four-and-a-half hours to get to my mom’s house from where I live. I hate driving, so that’s not a good start. When (it’s not “if”, because they are always out there) you add slow drivers in the passing lane to the mix…I’m ready to explode.

If you’re someone who cruises in the left lane…that’s not what it’s for. It’s time someone told you that. Have you ever noticed the signs that say “Slower Traffic Keep Right“. Those aren’t just posted for shits and giggles (or shiggles as the weather guy at my TV station calls them), they actually mean what they say. In other words, GET OUT OF THE WAY!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Clark Griswold trying to break land speed records. I’m a five-mile-per-hour over the speed limit kind of guy, but sometimes I get stuck behind some fool who wants to cruise at 54 in the left lane (in a 7o mile per hour zone) even after they’ve passed everyone. Really??? It’s pretty simple: turn on your blinker and move over. There’s no reason for you to be in the passing lane.

Thanks to Wikipedia, I found out that it’s actually illegal in most states to travel in the left lane unless you’re passing someone. This is Colorado’s “Left Lane Law”:

A person shall not drive a motor vehicle in the passing lane of a highway if the speed-limit is sixty-five miles per hour or more unless such person is passing other motor-vehicles that are in a non-passing lane…

If you want to know what the rules are where you live, here’s an entire list of states that have similar “Keep Right” laws.

I’m obviously not the only one who has an issue with this. There’s actually a website called http://slowertraffickeepright.com. There goal is to reduce congestion through more efficient use of existing roads. I think it’s genius! The National Motorists Association (who knew there was such a thing) has an entire section dedicated to “lane courtesy” on their web page.

I literally just took a huge sigh of relief. I’ve had that bottled up for way too long. It’s nice to finally get it off my chest. Sorry for the rant…it was well overdue.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has an issue with this. You can leave a comment below, connect with me on my Facebook page, reach me on Twitter @lewissports, or email me at tim@timlewissports.com.

And please…for the love of God…stay out of the left lane unless you’re passing someone!
