We can make the world a better place by observing one simple golden driving rule – SLOWER CARS STAY TO THE RIGHT . Yes I’ve been traveling again and this is Goldi’s public service announcement for those traveling on the highway. PLEASE all highway drivers need to remember that slower cars need to stay to the right. If you are in the left lane and someone comes up behind you. Don’t take it personally; don’t slow down to keep that person driving slow, and don’t feel that you are entitled to stay in the left lane driving at whatever speed you want. Please move to the right.
This time is not just my thought or opinion… I’ve looked into several state dmv sites and all in one form or another say for safe expressway driving, to drive in the right, and pass on the left.
I’ve been in so many traffic jams just due to someone hanging slow in the left lane. Causing many behind them undue stress. We all move at different rhythms and have different agendas on different days. One person may be out for a Sunday drive while another maybe racing to see a dying relative. We don’t know, and it’s not our job to control anything. Just please be kind and if your in the left lane, even if your passing someone and someone comes up behind you, it means they are going faster. Pass the car and then move over to the right. Let the faster car go ahead of you and then you can move back out into the left lane to pass again if needed. Much of the aggressive driving on the highway comes from the slow driver in the left lane. So please if your in the left lane and not passing someone, make life better and safer for us all, and move to the right. Life will be so much better.
