I have this HUGE pet peeve...I can't stand drivers that drive slow(ie.speed limit) in the fast lane. The fast lane is legally only to be used as a passing lane and NOT a lane that you can just cruise in.
How to tell if someone is driving too slow in the fast lane? - If someone is driving in the fast lane, and they look to the right, and the car beside them is driving at the exact same speed as they are...then they are driving too slow and should move over.
So I'm on my bike driving in the fast lane just coming up to a Honda Accord. I wait about 20 seconds to see if they guy notices me and moves over. He doesnt. So I flash him a few times. Nothing. I honk at him. He then slows down a bit more, and starts pointing at his spedometer. I notice that he is trying to tell me that he is driving the speed limit. I start waving my hand and pointing to him, then pointing to the right lane. He thinks that he is in the right because he is driving the speed limit. He is wrong! He is to drive the speed limit in the slow lane. I finally come up beside him and point again to the right lane. He still points to his spedometer. I try to get up next to him at the next light to tell him what he is doing wrong, but he gets scared and makes a quick left. The right lane came free about half way through this incident, but why should I have to risk passing him in the slow lane and getting a ticket. He should just curtiously move over for me.
I am in my car this time. I come up behind a minivan. There is a guy in it driving under the speed limit in the fast lane. There is a semi truck beside him in the slow lane going the same speed as him. So I honk at him once. He doesnt notice me. Finally the truck in the right lane goes faster then him, so I pass him in the right lane. I then notice he is talking on a cell phone headset. I go in front of him. He then hangs up his phone. We are stopped at a light. The light goes green and I accelerate REALLY slow. I am going slower then the semi truck beside me. He then notices that I am going slow and starts to get impatient. He pulls into the right lane to try and pass, but I speed up. He then pulls up behind me again. He starts following me really close. He then tries to make a quick move on the middle barrier lane, and tries to pass. I speed up. Finally the lane just merges to one, and I drive exactly the speed limit. I then turn off and he honks at me. Well, I guess now he knows how it feels for people to drive slow in the passing lane.
People like this REALLY PISS ME OFF. I come across these people everyday. When will BC drivers realize that slow driving is not all acceptable.
This is my rant for today.
