Left lane rant.



Drove to Montreal and back and let me tell you

Why people in Quebec 95% of them are good enough to move over to a faster car coming up? As soon as you drive in to Ontario its a big dissapointment and fail. People dont move. I set a cruise control at comfy to me 130 km/h and pople driving 120 just dont feel like moving over. I mean 20% of them do, but the rest are just horribe at it. Had few guys flipping me, just cuz im faster 10 km/h? Or to them it seems like surrender or rape? I DONT get it. If i see a car coming up or blinking at me i do it right away. I dont know why, it seems right to me. Why other people SO ****ing ignorant/stupid? /rant.

Discuss.

Yes, thats how it is....Some people even doing 100 or less in left lane, when you flash them they slam on the brakes, or move over and then flash you, never move at all...I have even seen a guy STOP in the left lane because an ambulance was behind him! (but did NOT move left or right, just blocked him!)

Driving discipline in the GTA is non-existent. Every time I am in the US the difference in lane courtesy is ridiculously apparent.

^^i was with some friends in the new york state (they were driving). We got pulled over. Cop explained to my friend that the right lane is for passing, not cruising. No ticket, but lesson learned.

I totally agree with you. Such a pain in the ass.
I just did round trip from Ottawa to london this weekend. Passed a lot of people using the middle lane. They just don't get it! I think Police should start ticketing more for Impeding Traffic.

Right lane passing? That's as obscure as no right turns on red.

10 percent of the population of ontario comes from either india or china and look at how they drive to work.


india traffic

chinese traffic


before you think, "oh what retards look at how they drive to work!" your a retard in another way but you cant admit it.

That’s where driving etiquette takes a shit.

Middle lane blasting FTW. That’s what I do when there’s very little traffic and I see a car parked in the left lane. Last Tuesday I was coming back from a concert in T.O., it was about 12:30am, not much west bound traffic at all and yet there were dozens of people along the way parked in the left lane. Both lanes beside them empty and yet they choose to park in the left lane. When I see that I usually drop a gear and hammer by them in the middle lane at about an arm’s length from their car just to rattle their cage... it’ll be much funner this summer with a cat-back straight pipe

Why would they move over. No one is enforcing the passing lane.
OPP rather set up speed traps and charge people for 50 over rather than enforcing the passing lane.

It disgust me every time i drive on the hwy. Most of Toronto traffic could be avoided if people knew how use passing lanes.

This is what the opp should be doing.It will be also nice if they educate the public on this issue like they do in some states, and issue out ticket to this people.
