road rage in SC? Do enough people even live there to clog a road?

Same thing going on in Colorado also. But some people are fighting it saying that it will cause speeding, reckless driving and accidents. I think these people need to get a clue. They are probably the numb nuts that cruise the passing lane.

I got a ticket in Oklahoma in 1985 for cruising in the fast/passing lane.

Seriously! It's taken long enough for someone to do something about this crap. I lived in Colorado and we always used to joke about how many people sit in the "passing lane" doing the speed limit or less when there's no cars around. Three cheers for SC!!!

In maryland it is law that you cannot hinder traffic in the left lane. Irrespective of speed.

Plus I also beleive that more slow drivers cause accidents than fast drivers. I hate bumber huggers, sypathetic speeders, left lane loungers and pass and pause idiots.

WHAT THE F............. man...... you know people don't follow the 65mph speed limited whats the point of handing out speeding ticket if they going to give ticket to people that are not speeding but blocking drivers??? Unless they change the speed limit to 85 mph

The fact is that it is much safer to be exceeding the speed limit them impeding the flow of traffic by going significantly slower then traffic in a given lane. This is a law in just about every state of the union however it is rarely enforced since speeding tickets tend to generate more revenue for the state.

I like it. I really hate passing people on the right, but when they are trying to pull a long hill in their Cavalier, in the left lane, I get pissed. Know what hills your car can pull! When I had my impreza L, you can bet your ass I was in the right lane.

The sign's don't do much good.. I usually hop between the middle and right lanes cause they have less traffic then the left lane usually..

Interstates in SC have 70 mph speedlimits - not 65. If you don't want to speed, stay in the right hand lane. Pretty simple - eh?

Our speed limits were designed in the 50s long before all the safety features that we have now so why do we cling to the old speed limits, why do cars and trucks have the same speed limit but different braking distances and why do people get pulled over for speeding when they are going with the flow of traffic? Maryland also has the same law but its never enforced. They'd rather give out speeding tickets then anything else. Just let me buy a $300 a year permit so I can drive 80mph on the damn highways and not have to worry about getting pulled over. If its just about revenue then simply let me buy a permit.

NJ has had this in effect for as long as i can remember . . . and the people who fail to obey it should be drawn, quartered, shot, hung, blown up, and killed. people tend to call NJ drivers "crazy" . . . we switch lanes alot on the highway because it's the law. i think. or maybe we're just crazy.

Actually our speed limits were set up in the mid 70's to deal with the oil "crisis". Before that most states had speed limits 70 and up, and in the 50's most western states had no limits.

We've got these signs in Ontario. They are totally useless. They make no difference at all.

IMHO its unsafe to have two speed limits since a truck would be doing 55 and cars 70 even the cars that are going the speed limits would eventually have to overtake the slower truck traffic and a significant portion of truck/car accidents happen when a car is overtaking a truck and incidents where a car runs into the back of trucks traveling slower (such as up hills) happens every day.

one of my friends was pulled over for speeding, but given an additional fine for driving in the passing lane whilst not passing. And this was on a two-lane highway.

The best solution is to have our highway systems like a big pinball game. There are paddles at certain points in the road, much like toll booths. WHen a car is determined to be going too slow, it is tossed into another, more appropriate lane. Let the carnage begin.

Yep... those slow moving trucks tend to sneak up on ya. I mean, they are soooo damned hard to see on the interstates being that they are in front of you and all.











Here's a hint: Pay attention while driving!
