Why can't people just get out of my way?

I drive on a 2 lane parkway every morning to work and maybe I drive a little faster than most. What pisses me off is the people that ride the left lane and 10 mph slower than Im going, have plenty of room to move to the right and choose not to, forcing me to pass on the right or ride their bumpers. Case in point, some loser today in a beat up Honda Civic, with the cut stock springs to lower it within rubbing distance, is riding the left lane with no one in the right. So, I go to pass him on the right, at which point he speeds up. Now, Im not about to race a Honda Civic short of an SI (which I'll spank anyway) especially during rush hour on a road with limited visibility. So, I dont speed up but I dont slow down either. He's obviously pissed that Im trying to pass him or just needs to prove his car is the shit. He's a bumper length ahead of me when all of a sudden the road curves on the first incline, I hear rubbing, he's three car lengths back. He then trys to catch up again and I still dont increase speed. He gets within a car length of me when we hit the next curve, sharper and more incline than the last and this sends him too far back that I can no longer see him. Was I racing? No. Just pointing out that this moron would rather tear up his tires with his non-rolled-fenders havin dropped-on-shitty-suspension car or worse, hit the guard rail, than let me pass him.

Left lane = passing lane so GTFO of my way already!!!

I hate that shit too, fucking morons. I always get over if someone is coming up behind me in the left lane. Hell if the road was clear I wouldn't be driving there in the first place.

Re: Why can't people just get out of my way?

God I hear that. Same shit happens here in CT... even on 3 and 4 lane highways. On 91, there have been times where I've moved from the left lane, all the way to the right lane, just to pass people. The 3 left lanes have cars in them, but the right one doesnt. Is it just me, or shouldnt that be the other way around? Everybody needs to move over a fucking lane and keep the left lane as a passing lane.

Theres also nothing that pisses me off more while driving than people that go the same speed as the people in the lane next to them. They dont have to be right next to the other car, but they are inevitably blocking faster moving traffic. Be a vigilante (or just an oblivious retard) all you want, but move the fuck over and let me face the consequences for the speed I want to travel.

As far as the asshole that speeds up when you try and pass him, I just laugh. When it happens at night, I fall in behind them and throw on the highs. Fine, you can be in front of me asshat, but its gonna be bright and as annoying for you as it is for me.

Re: Why can't people just get out of my way?

plus maybe if everyone stayed out of the left lane we wouldnt have the crazies blasting through lanes on the right...i dont know how many times im in the middle lane when some one is flying up the left lane at 90 zooms across the middle lane all the way into the right lane (or even the merge lane) just to come all the way back across...if everyone sped a little bit...(like 5 over) i think traffic would be much smoother...its when you get that mix of fast and slow drivers that shit goes bad

we have a problem here where a lot of the exit lanes go into left lanes....so the left lanes get real crowded real quick...it sux

Re: Why can't people just get out of my way?

Im usually pretty good of getting out of the way. However, a lot of the times when im in the left lane, theres cars infront of me, so I can move over to let em pass, but what would be the point? Im matching speed of the person 2 seconds infront of me.

Both of you need to get out of the way if you are not passing. That said, I cant stand those morons that get on my ass when I cant get past the car in front of me or on the side of me.
