Drive on the Autobahn and you WILL move out of the left lane.

1. The left lane is for me, Stay out of it!
2. If you have to use my lane, you should be prepared to drive at least 80mph.
3. You can exceed the posted speed limit by 9mph anywhere without worrying about getting a ticket.
4. If you find yourself in a group of 3 or more vehicles, you can go as fast as you want. Just don't be the last vehicle.
5. There is no reason to use your brakes on the highway. You have a gas pedal and a steering wheel for a reason, Use them!

Meh again, schuyler.
I've heard that one before. And I bet you have heard this one before: "Good thing we don't live in Germany".
It humors me a little to know that there are those out there that soothe their traffic horror by somehow going to an imaginary Autobahn where all of the cars click efficiently from one lane to the other with the crisp 'click' of a Swiss army knife.
It "humors you," does it? It hunors me that you are replying to what you imagine I said rather than what I actually said. I've been there and done that, behind the wheel, for hundreds of miles in Germany. It's not imaginary.
There is no "driving 63 in a 65 zone" in Germany. The fact is, left lane hoggers are not tolerated, period.

So our economy is crashing, Korea is threatening a nuclear war, our troops are still in the Middle East, there are shootings happening all over the nation, and you choose to get hacked off over someone driving two miles under the limit in the left lane?
Tell me more about how that is so irritating in comparison to the hell this world is going through.edit on 12-3-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)

It's not as good as my favorite, but close.
When people "tailgate" me, I like to slow down, really slow... until I get to a dashed line, then I speed up so they can't pass until we get back to the double yellow line and slow down again. I figure if they're gonna ride my bumper, they're gonna ride it slow
Just for the record, if they stay at a safe following distance, I will speed up for them, then ease off when we get to a passing zone so they can get by, it's only the tailgaters I do that to.
