Blame the government, not the drivers.

With the amount of braindead new immigrants in the GTA, you will have this happen more often than not until the become accustomed to driving on the shitty 401.
'new immigrants?'

Huh, I didn't realize that it was possible to determine, at highway speeds, without any conversation or other interaction, whether someone is a 'new immigrant', or a Canadian-born person of color.

Must be pretty remarkable powers of observation, buddy.

You can get a ticket for impeding the flow of traffic by blocking the left lane. Problem is a cop is never there to enforce it.

I know someone who got a ticket for it because she didn't notice the cop behind her trying to get by.

The car in the front always sets the pace. You need some skills, courage, and perhaps a faster car to overtake. If you are impatient, it's better off to hired a chauffeur or fly a helicopter.

Go look at the stats.
Most collisions involve new drivers or new immigrants.

Yeah I do see some random bullshit from time to time. The other day I was stopped at a red light and a car with a couple of older middle eastern women pulls up in the left turn lane opposite of me, never stops, just rolls slowly into the intersection and then makes the left turn, all while the light was red. There wasn't any traffic, it was just a situation where a light changed for only 1 car to go through, but I was like wtf...

the right lane has been the "new" left lane for at least the last decade.

^Here we go again,

Look don't entertain the guy taking about new immigrants. Your time would be wasted on a bigot who blames immigration and people of colour for whatever failures have come upon him, his dad and maybe even is granddaddy. You know, like those super intelligent guys who wear pillow cases on their heads, marry their sisters, talk about how their jobs are being taken by immigrants etc

Grain of salt, you can't reason with people who are set in an archaic way of thinking and only see what appears to them to be obvious cause and effect relationships. They are usually unwilling or unable to dig deeper. Hence the reference to plain Jane stats.

New drivers, regardless where they are from, pay higher rates because of the risk. They used to crank rates if you were out of province!

Cruising at exactly 100 kph in the left lane and forcing people around you creates a
dangerous situation. Common sense is to be defensive, and avoid the problem.
