    anyone else create traffic breaks?

    i had a nice one going on yesterday about 1000-1500 feet traffic break on the I5 ...

    poor clueless drivers


    basically i just went into the fast lane just 3-5mph over the limit then you could see the traffic build up and not pass you (maybe a few people had the nuts to pass you that was about it)

    it did not matter as there was stop and go in front it would have made no difference time wise for anyone on the freeway


    time saved would have been zero...

    Basically being the slow, elderly person driving slow in the fast lane that pisses everyone off?

    Really, there is no fast lane. The speed limit applies to all lanes.

    Still, the grammar and attempt to communicate with this one has left me perplexed.

    True, but slower cars are supposed to keep right, there's even signs on the highway that say that. Also signs that say keep right except to pass.

    They also give tickets for driving too slow and impeding flow of traffic.

    there was a ton of traffic rush hour it would not have changed anything for anyone
    the time saved would have been 0 seconds

    since it was a construction zone the speed limit is 55 anyways

    I would not be proud of this, your rationalization not withstanding.

    I'm afraid I need this one decoded for me as to what exactly took place.

    The OP got in the passing lane...
    Drove slowly...
    held up traffic...

    Am I right so far? Is this something normal people do? And why?

    So yes there are signs that say that, except they need to be bigger and in bright neon colors so people will see them! lol
    The keep right except to pass law is not a law in California. It should be..... Because people pass so unsafely on the right lanes all the time. And it drives me nuts!
