Default If you're driving under the speed limit, and someone wishes to pass....

MOVE THE **** OUT OF THEIR WAY!!!!!!

I spent most of my commute home behind this:




He rarely, if ever, was entirely in his own lane. When we got to a passing zone, and I signaled and moved over to pass him, he purposely blocked me from doing so, despite us doing 15mph under the speed limit. Stayed in the lane, honked, and he held there to keep me from going around.... so I eventually had to just tuck back behind him.

If you can't keep it in your lane.... GET IT OFF THE ****ING ROAD!!!!
If you don't want to drive the speed limit...MOVE THE **** OVER FOR PEOPLE WHO DO!!!!

I wish he had a license plate on there so I could send all the pictures to the local cops.

That's pretty ridiculous. If it becomes a regular occurance follow him and find out where he lives, then report him to the police.

My town is filled with the kind of people that drives their trucks in that way thinking "No stupid Niss-UHN is gonna pass me" and they try to block me or accelerate when i'm passing them.

Thankfully, my car is quicker and I can pass them and see their face on my rear view mirror

Do you see ANY room in those pictures that I could have gotten by him? Most of the trip you would have been lucky to fit a motorcycle by in the space he left on either side. In a 130hp Miata, I can't just romp on the throttle and go rocketing by.

I understand it's a narrow road, and that's a wide vehicle, but the way this guy was driving was beyond ridiculous.

Yeeeah, in some cases, the follower must just remain patient; this however, does not seem like one of those times.




Im sure i would have been sceaming into my windshield after a couple minutes.

I didn't say that your car could fit
I was just saying that similar stuff happens in my town..

..you could've called the cops though, the fact that he didn't have a plate would've gotten him into even more trouble.

If you had honked enough it probably would have spooked his horse. Then he would have had a REAL problem on his hands.

Because I'm bored.... I mapped it

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sadd...2,0.22316&z=13

8.3 miles behind that guy before I finally got so frustrated I passed in a curve at the first chance when he actually stayed in his lane (at 10mph). I'm a bad boy, but 8 miles at 15mph-25mph under the speed limit...what would YOU do?

Mine would have gone like this:
Pass halfway on pavement/half grass. Downshift into first and slam the throttle down sending a rooster tail of grass/dirt/gravel at him from my pathetic open diff.
That'll learn him.
