D1, you're such a boy racer.
Drivers who, for reasons best known to themselves, refuse to use the nearside lane prevent faster drivers from overtaking, so you get a long line of vehicles stuck behind. This is particularly the case for trucks over 7.5 ton, which are barred from the offside lane and can't get passed some silly sod who is doing less than 55mph in the center lane.
I was forced to do 130mph on Saturday. Ahhhh! Empty autobahns!
dent, I get a lot of wind noise from the sunroof at anything over 130mph...how do you get around that?
..... make it illegal to own a car exceeding the speed limit ...
If the safe drivers were deputized as the state traffic posse .....
Then the people speeding past them could be mined as a good source of state revenue.On the drive home from San Francisco last weekend I could have generated $100,000 easily.
When I was driving back from London to Glasgow, for work, I spotted several middle lane hoggers.
When I was driving back from London to Glasgow, for work, I spotted several middle lane hoggers.Like this guy.
What's wrong with hogging the middle lane? Am I being an ignorant fool here or am I missing something?...Oh, you have a slow and fast lane?
Unfortunate only when there is no one nearby...... to save you .......   
I drive at the speed limit on cruise control.Obviously I get passed a lot, but I notice that traffic goes by in clumps. Is there some theoretical reason (maybe someting involving entropy?) for this behavior? It is clearly unsafe to exced the speed limit by bunching up like that - even in fog.
Although there is a tendency for some drivers to form 'convoys', I think most of the ignorant gits among them want to get passed everything in sight so they can catch up with the next line of traffic and get passed them too!
That's why I favor the dashboard cam and changing the laws to include a month in the stocks and/or public caning.
