Keep Right, Pass Left concept - July 21, 2009, 02:50 PM

Why does it seem that no one does this anymore, especially here in Maryland?! Three lanes of traffic, ALL GOING THE SAME SPEED?! In most states that I've lived in, it's actually illegal to cruise in the left lane, regardless of the fact that it's just bad driving. Do they not teach this anymore? WTF?

I travel 95 everyday and you would be surprised how many people are cruising at 55mph on the left lane causing traffic.

BTW, I heard in some states the right lane is actually the fast/passing lane. Is that true?

people on 66 and 81 try to pass on the right ALL the time because they don't wanna wait 20 secs for the guy in the front of the left lane to move over. they get stuck behind the slowest driver who is in the right lane, and everyone gets close to the car in front of them so they can't cut in. stupid idiot passing in right = the last to pass the car and ends up behind everyone else.

idiots

Drive on the toll road just once and you will know exactly where the worst offenders of this simple rule hang out most. And in the rare occasions when I get to HOV on the TR, some dope in a Prius always tries to get the most MPG on his way home.

Fuck MD the roads are all shit they dont maintain a fucking thing my truck bottomed out 3 times on my way to MIR last weekend! I also saw about a million squids blowing up and down the highways and more then enough police! I know Virginia sucks for police but damn atleast we have decent roads and u dont get ur doors blown off by calamari every couple miles.... Oh and where in the fuck do MD peeps have to go thats so important its like they dont travel any less then 20 above the speed limit.

Outside of the major cities are the only places Ive found where people dont camp in the left lane.

There was a list about NOVA once, and the fact that no self respecting resident would ever dream of not being in the left lane, regardless of how fast, or slow they are going.

Wow, never been on 66? Only major thoroughfare i've seen that was muiltiple colors and levels. If thats yalls best bet against 270...sad dude. Its a lot of fun going offroading on 66 when heading down to RnR or most of NOVA. Fix them potholes, what do yall think you're Baltimore City or something? As for speed, well at least we know this concept of "merging" as well, whaddya know 66 is backed up again


It should always be driver in the right, pass on left. Too many times (Rockville Pike yet again) idiots in the left lane going 35 when speed limit is 40 and everyone else is going 45-55. Then you pass on right and bam someone who doesn't have a moron in front them moves to pass on on left and theres a collision. With all the extra speedtraps, cops could get a lot more ticklet revnue for slowing the left lane and not using turn signals! And bad drivers are on both sides of the "border", only difference is we think the other side has the worst drivers!

The ONLY rule they don't enforce. People wouldn't rage so much if they could simply keep traffic moving.

lol at your 66 comments, but regarding the pike or any other non-highway. slow people sometimes gotta turn left. slow people also probably don't merge fast, so they camp in the lane they need to be in. I don't really have an issue with that. the hw stuff IS annoying. it really does cause traffic. if you're gong the same speed at least get in the same lane and save some gas. not letting faster traffic pass is just hating (and lots of people purposefully do this). as long as it's not bumper to bumper, you'll never see the faster traffic again, and it doesn't slow you down to not block. it's the same mentality with people who like to block riders from splitting traffic at lights.

thats only a couple miles of the entire highway that is like that.... MD has shitty roads and thats it.... and so much calamari on ur interstates its obnoxious.... 66 traffic does suck but what do u expect traveling east bound where it goes from 4 lanes down to 2 through Arlington and traveling West bound it because of all the idiot Hov violators and the construction through gainesville.... I still prefer riding my bike around a VA motorist then a MD motorist anyday...

Nope, it is not illegal to cruise in the left lane anywhere in the country except New Jersey.

Public roads are designed for transportation, not to help you speed. If you go the speed limit, you will not find this to be a problem.
