Re: Finally targeting Slow Drivers!!

We have signs all over the place on the highways that state that the left lane is only for passing. Our 'retarded' drivers don't see them...heck, they don't even know what a yield sign represents. Signs...we don't see no stinkin' signs.

I can't imagine that the FL white tops (probably the biggest offenders) are going to see a billboard sign let alone be able to read it.

Remember....alot of NJ folks retire to FL.

Re: Finally targeting Slow Drivers!!

Man I wish they would do the same here in B.C. Cdn. I find so many on the passing lane & the jackass right next to them is ALSO on cruise control so there is no frigging change in the speeds of said two going a hair below max speed limit.

They started to pinch drivers in the city of Penticton for passing on the slow lane & I know what that feels like as I had 7 cages all doing 40 to 50kph on max 80kph road, no one on the right so I am passing on the right (slow lane) only to be pinched last year while on my m/c.

Hell in my area, of the few four lane roads I RIDE the slow lanes at MY speed & when I come to vehicles in front & going slower, this is when I swing out to pass & then back into the SLOW lane again till the next, for if someone wants to be clocking faster then myself then I am not in their way.

Now is the time of tourists & the roads will be plugged with RVs that are simply crawling & often pulling a van or SUV, to those that will be going slow in their normal cages & be slowing down even more when they come to the crest of a bit of a climb in the many two-lane twisty mtn roads as they are frightened of such roads & in actual fact should not be driving on them NOR are they reading the signs that indicate the speed for all the bends, but then we know most cannot read anyway or are rubber-necking the scenery..

I love my riding, but behind such idiots I am nearly sent into crazy-world & reason I was ticketed for speeding or breaking the law three times last yr on my bike & that is costly on my compulsory insurance. The actual fines do not bother me, but the points hurt.

YES there are normal signs by the roads saying these are passing lanes or something like that ------ shows that even I cannot recall what they say.
