There are not many roads like that around here where that would apply. I somtimes forget that I am supposed to drive in the right lane but usually people don't care because i am going faster than the people in the right lane.
Lol I don't get how you can "forget" the left hand lane is for passing. Around here allot of people will even SLOW DOWN to get right to let you pass, if you want to go faster then they were going. No matter what if you drive in the left hand lane there WILL be a car behind you sooner or later trying to pass.There are not many roads like that around here where that would apply.

And also its not like she would have to read law books to know this is a law all she has to do is READ THE SIGNS on the highway. There are signs that throughout CT that say "keep right except to pass" "Slow cars MUST keep right" "no passing on the right"you know you don't go to the library and get law books every time you cross borders.
not that im saying this lady was justified, i have huge problems with rude drivers, but i mean, choose your battles.
...what he said. now watch for my finger.in Cali... the left lane is just a lane.... its cuz we're used to it being so congested that its all it can be.
but thats not typical of us.
i guess its a 'merge' if the other people are going 80hell i merge on the highway doing 80
Here on 680 and 580 on weekends looks like everyone is doing at least 75mph.Hmmm i live in nor-cal and most people don't even drive 65, it's sad. They go 65 on their speedo but their speedos are usually off a bit so they're really going 63 or so. I usually just drive in the left lane going 70-75 the whole time passing car after car.
As for CHP, those are few and far between here.
We are friendly, if you don't cut us off or stare at us we tend to throw out friendly waves.there are many things that irritate me about cali drivers.
this is one of them- my wife was born and raised here. For about a year and a half she and her mother moved to texas where i lived at the time. after i first met her she explained to me that she thought that drivers in texas were extremely rude even compaired to cali drivers so i asked her why. she said that everytime she and her mother passed someone going the opposite direction on a rural/residential/farm road they would give her the finger.
i laughed and said that the people were waving and that she was mistaken. she didn't believe me at the time but i told her to pay more attention next time it happened. sure enough, the next day she told me i was right and that she and her mother just automatically assumed that any hand gesture was an automatic flipping of the bird because thats the only acknowlegement you get in cali. due to this they just started to ignore the other drivers and misunderstood the waving for flipping of the bird. i guess after living here for a few years i'll be the same when i go back to texas to visit.
