Passing Not-So-Fancy

Marla Campbell

To the guy who entered the freeway and shot across four lanes of traffic to cut off a fast-moving truck and almost cause an accident: Thank you so much for sitting in the passing lane driving at a little under 65 mph while 10 cars lined up behind you. You were intentionally changing your speed to match the car beside you so as to keep everyone from passing, weren't you? I'm sure the dirty looks from the car beside you and the 10-12 cars that passed you made it all worth your while. Look, the speed limit is in fact 65, but the far-left lane is the passing lane. Use it when you're passing people or driving faster than the general flow of traffic. You were a danger on that road, not the truck behind you.
