A little late...

Yeah, I know I said I was going to post yesterday, but there's no one reading this but me, so I have no one to dissapoint but myself. Anyway, on to the subject at hand. When there are two cars pacing each other on a two lane road, who is supposed to do what? In my opinion, it should be the car in the left lane. Where I live, there are signs all over the place saying things like "Left lane is for passing only" and "Slower traffic stay to the right". Now, this doesn't mean that people actually read these signs and follow their directions. But when you have cars pacing other and no one can go around, it can cause some traffic back-ups and also make the other drivers angry. So, in my opinion, the driver in the left lane either needs to speed up and pass the driver in the right lane and then get into the right lane or they need to slow down and get in the right lane. Since the left lane is supposed to be for the slower drivers and the drivers who are not passing, then the responsibility falls to the driver in the left lane to make sure that they are driving faster and passing the drivers in the right lane. Now, if you go to pass the person in the right lane and they realize how slow they are driving and speed up and now are matching your speed, I would think that if it was safe, to go ahead and speed up enough to pass the vehicle. If they look like the kind of person who is going to get all pissed off if you do that, slow down and get behind them. Just act logically. I know that's hard for the majority of people who drive, but just think before you act. Ok, that's it for today. Talk to y'all later.
