Your logic is flawed.... obeying the law can lead to all kinds of crime my friend.
I donít want to start a debate that causes the original thread to become lost. Nor do I want an argument, however I still donít agree that obeying the law CAUSES crime.
No you could be car jacked because some goblin wants to steal something that you most likely worked very hard to be able to afford. Not because you were obeying the law.
You could be carjacked because you have a nice car.
No your wife might be mugged because some crack head wants some money to get high.
Your wife could be mugged while out exercising
Not because she was obeying the law.
Wrong again, you might get shot in a bank robbery because some morons want to score some fast money, and you were unlucky enough to be there when they struck. Not because you were obeying the law.
you could be shot in the bank during a bank robbery when you were just making a legal deposit.
What I am saying is most of the folks I see putting in the fast lane need to move over
I agree that keeping a relatively low profile is a good idea. However it isnít going to stop RR. Those same people will just travel another 1/4 mile down the road and go after someone else. Whether there excuse is ďthey didnít slam on the brakes and let me in, when I tried to cut in front of them 2 miles after I saw the first sign saying that the left lane is closed.Ē
because there are always hot heads that "may" rage on them. Again, not condoning it...its a fact of our society.....why provoke it. YMMV.
I understand that, but those people are going to be provoked at someone anyway, drive like you have some sense and donít worry about it.
Again...I am not making excuses for people who cannot control themselves behind the wheel.
I agree that Slow Flow (great choice btw) acted inappropriately. However obeying the law wasnít the problem. The problem was because her head was up her rectum, and she couldnít be bothered with driving since her BF was on the phone no doubt listening to complain about the price of her car insurance and her cell phone bill. Like most of those today with a liberal education she decided that her problems were somehow your fault.
I had an experience on Friday morning driving to work. I drive a slighlty lifted large tired Nissan Frontier....its Yellow.and I drive with my headlights on (been pulled out in front of too many times) andyway...I am on the Loop 303 here in AZ..it is a 2 lane hiway in the section I am on....ther are a few other vehicles. The posted limit is 55, and most are doing that or 5 over. I am in the slow lane as I come upon a truck and a few cars in the slow lane, I signal to the fast lane which is moving faster than the slow lane (they are doing 55). I am behind another 2 vehicles...one pickup in front of me and a car in front of him...the lady in front of the guy in front of me..we will call her Slow Flow for the sake of this incident...she passed by the other cars and the semi truck and then slowed down..still in the fast lane. This stuck us next to the semi and other cars...with no way to get by. Another 2 cars caught up behind me..so 4 cars...and she isnt moving to the left as she has enough room...finally the pickup in front of me has just enough room to get by in front of the semi....so here I am in my truck...lights on, and just over a car length behind her as I move up....she is STILL doing 55 and even the semi is slowly gaining on us and I cannot get around. I DID NOT honk, didnt wave, didnt flash my lights..I was just waiting for her to move over and I had nowhere I could move to. SHE started wiggin out and flipping ME off...waving her arms around like an idiot while talking on her cell...the truck driver saw this and slowed to where I could move in front of him and pass her in the slow lane...she started flipping ME off...and I could tell foaming profanities at me..for her inconsiderate act of blocking the FLOW of traffic. I simply passed and shook my head...I was in utter disbelief. This is the type of thing I am talking about. I was raged on by Flow for her lack of intelligence.
there is NO reason to behave this way...or to tailgate on someone passing a slower moving vehicle.
