Do they even teach this in driving school anymore? Or do they do it simply to annoy other drivers? I had to pass some young guy with a beard laid back with his flat bill ball cap texting doing less than the speed limit on a four lane matching a 18 wheeler next to him. I accelerated and passed on the shoulder.

He's probably trying to get even for all the fast drivers in the slow poke lane.

It’s mentioned, that’s about it. Most people camping the left lane have a “I’m doing the speed limit, I can be in any lane I want!” mentality.

I have noticed people tend to move when I come up behind them in the truck. In the 300 and our van, they couldn’t care less and won’t move.

Was the dude a Zombie or just didn't know it was a cop behind them. Bet he/she needed an underwear change when the lights came on, lol.

Gotta be my home state. I’ve seen that from time to time. When I was stationed in Puerto Rico years ago nobody actually got lit up. Police used to patrol with their lights on constantly. Often wondered if that practice is followed anywhere else.

This philosophy has many nuances. There are also the people that think "I'm going 17 over the speed limit, anyone going faster is a maniac....

but darn it, I am absolutely perfect, and I should set the bar."

Yup, ridiculous. I've seen people intentionally cut into the fast lane to slow someone down, causing the person to swerve and almost cause an accident. duh My thoughts are who cares what speed they are going, let the speeders find the cops first. Cutting in front of them only puts you and everyone around you at risk.

Kentucky used to have a toll-free number you could call to report a suspected DUI; a friend in the Kentucky State Police told me that about 80% of the time they'd find the car that had been reported turned out to be a Park Avenue or similar- piloted by Paw Paw Percy and dawdling in the left lane.

I doubt they teach passing on the shoulder in driving school either.

Control issues go both ways.
