Fine $90 For Driving 2mph UNDER The Limit - March 12, 2013, 11:02 AM

Here's a new twist to the game. Now you get fined for COMPLYING with the laws and using better judgment in less than ideal weather conditions.

I'd give her a ticket every day of the week. She was a left lane parade maker. Move the hell over.

It's called lane discipline...figure it out.

Meh, use better judgement in the right lane. If tractor trailers can drive fine at or above the speed limit then she should be able to also. If not move the F over or finish grocery shopping and get back in the kitchen!

Didn't MD pass a "move bitch, get out the way" law for slow drivers in the left lane a few years ago?

Even still, it seems dumb to ticket her. Just drop a gear and fly past on the right and mean mug like everyone does on a daily basis.


More gas, less brake

haha dumb ass stuff. I could see if she was doing like 40MPH in a 65, but come on 63... The ticket is for failure to move right? Is that a real law that you have to move over even if the knucklehead behind you is doing way over the limit??? If so people better start moving, cuz here I come. I'm going to use this as precedence and every time I'm behind someone and want to go faster I'll just call the local police and report a person who just won't move over.... LOL Funny funny stuff.

Yeah it really depends on if she was parade making which we have to assume,?? and for how long? Guess it'll be her story vs the cop and we'll see how it plays out.

Wish they would give this ticket out more often.

It might actually convince people to stay out of the left lane unless making a pass.

The ticket will likely be tossed.

But I couldnt agree more with ticketing her. You want to be cautious do it in any other lane. 95 has signs everywhere that say "Slower Traffic Keep Right"

I applaud the cop. Need more like these:

finally an enforcement that actually positively benefits commuters as a whole. slow traffic that doesn't move over impedes the flow of cars, and costs everyone time + money. i get tickets for getting the fuck out of everyone's way (in a hurry), i'm glad someone finally got one for not getting the fuck out of the way.

if you wanna drive slower than the flow of traffic, fine but move the fuck over.

There's research on traffic "waves" and the slowdowns/halts that result that suggest that "left lane speed limit enforcer" assholes are responsible for a good chunk of traffic problems in high pop areas.

So, fuck em. I say "Good."

The left lane is for PASSING! Not for doing your fucking nails, talking on the phone, ready the paper, stuffing your face etc. Move the fuck over so others can carry on about your day. The amount of "speed checkers" in this area is fucking astounding. These are the assholes who either see you passing others in the left lane and get pissed that you are going over the speed limit so they cut you off, block you, then proceed to use their hands to tell you what the speed limit is. Hey you dumb faggot driving the overprice toy car (insert prius, smart car, etc here) fuck off! I dont get in the far right lane and ride your ass do I? NO,

If you don't understand the lane system and the etiquette behind it, then do everyone a favor and either keep your ass at home, or if you find yourself driving in the left lane at or below the speed limit for more than 30 seconds at a time then please carry a tazer and taze yourself right in your dumb face!

If this was 2 miles in the other direction, you fuckers would be crying about "nanny state this" and "tax collection by law enforcement that".

Agree, with everything you said. But I'm arguing what her lawyer will argue and WIN with. She was doing the speed limit. (but hopefully the story will get word out that the Police aren't F'ing around and you either move or get a ticket)

I tend to stay in the left lane as not many people are going faster than me, but I always try to get out of the way when someone is going faster (even if I'm already <X> MPH over the limit. Not sure why someone who felt they were "in danger" would get in the fast lane and expect people not to want to ride their ass etc.. Shit it could be a hurricane and there is always someone who thinks they are driver of the decade who is blazing triple digits in high wind/rain etc.. Best bet is like you say stay the fuck out of the fast lane unless you are going fast. Given if she was passing the other 3 lanes who were doing say < 50MPH then ok, but as soon as you get a break GTFO and let traffic flow bitch!

I just want a cow catcher mounted to the front of my car and plow ppl out of the way. I had two asshats block me in the other day on the bike, till they got into a turn and couldn't keep there block LOL I was like PEACE!
