This page explains what the fabled Left Lane Bandit (to be referred to from here on as "LLBs") is. As you might have
guessed, LLBs are my biggest pet peeve on the roads. If not for having to deal with several of these fools on a daily
basis, I might never have even started this site - they're THAT annoying.
Unfortunately for many of us, the sign pictured above is quite possibly the most-ignored road sign in America. People
don't seem to understand that the far left lane is for passing, and if you aren't passing (and aren't
sitting in traffic that prevents you from doing so), you do not belong there... no ifs, ands, or buts. Sadly, some are
just too ignorant to realize that they are disrupting the flow of traffic and causing other drivers to have fits. Even
worse, some are NOT ignorant of this fact, but rather clog up the left lane on purpose because they like to pretend
they're traffic cops, which is not acceptable. So in case it's not clear enough already: if you're not passing people,
stay out of the number-one lane!
It's sad that this kind of behavior is permitted to go on constantly without punishment, because most police
departments are too concerned with writing useless speeding tickets to enforce laws that
actually make commuting a bit less stressful.
