@Rooscooter you flying yesterday?
The whole problem with this premise is, it is entirely dependent on the right lane dwellers actually doing the speed limit.
If someone's not going the speed limit, that forces those doing the speed limit jump out into the 5 to 10 over lane (heaven forbid they speed up to merge left and brake the speed limit) and the cascade begins. The Sea of BRAKE LIGHTS
The other issue is the Dale Earnhardt wannabes out there in the NASCAR lane seem to think it's perfectly alright to wait until the very last second to attempt getting to their exit, most of the time cutting off both other lanes while having to slam on their brakes to avoid missing their exit....
Can you tell I've driven in Seattle traffic...?
They don't. The middle lane does - sometimes. The right lane is full of pokies, and idiots that can't use the onramp to come up to speed and have to slow down so they won't have to brake on the offramp. Its fucking rare - VERY rare - that I can get onto I-95 (70 MPH) at anything faster than 45 or 50 because these Florididiots won't speed up until they're actually on the freeway despite very nice and long onramps.The whole problem with this premise is, it is entirely dependent on the right lane dwellers actually doing the speed limit.
Lately in the Atlanta area there seems to be a glut of drivers in the left lane that seem to think it is desired to perfectly match the pace of the right lane.
I am seeing this all the time lately when I get on the highway.
When a gap finally appears and a motorcade of people switch to the right lane to roar past, they still stay camped in the left lane.
Well, you know we are all rugged individualists and free to do as we please. But it is remarkable how well a large amount of traffic can move in some places in Europe with good lane discipline.
