More Research Needed!
This is another one of my requests for a few million from the Federal government for some urgent research that is needed that could have a huge positive impact on our society. Anyone of driving age could be positively impacted by this. Presidential candidates should debate this for our upcoming election. The issue that needs at LEAST $10M of research is this:
People that drive significantly sower in the left lane.
OK – before you flame me for being some sort of angry and aggressive driver that flips everyone off, take a deep breath. This is an honest question and something I truly don’t understand. There is no age, race, or car type bias here either. I have personally witnessed this behavior by all flavors.
The situation is this: the person is cruising along in the left lane of ANY road with more than one lane and other drivers are whizzing by them on the right consistently. Not just one person passing, but essentially and endless stream of cars passing them. Yet that person just continues at their desired speed like nobody else exists.
I am NOT suggesting they are doing anything illegal at all. So put that flame away too. But at the end of the day, even if they are doing exactly the speed limit with their legal rights, they really are a hazard. And this is just magnified if it is rush hour.
So if I had the opportunity to chat with this alleged person, I would simply ask WHY? Why were you in the left lane to begin with if you were only going to do the speed limit? Or why didn’t you move over when you could see all the cars coming up behind you and then going around you? Or maybe that’s it? They never noticed it at all. Which would actually scare me even more.
Is it an entitlement thing? Do they think they are actually helping control the speed of other drivers? Maybe a public service of sorts? Is this a vengeance thing as they are angry at drivers that speed? Or are they just in their own little world and don’t even notice everyone driving around them? Or maybe they do notice but don’t think it’s an issue?
I honesty do not know. Hence the above questions and my justifiable desire for at least $10 million taxpayer dollars to research this.
Will this be the first question that comes up at the next Presidential debate? Or do they save this one until the end since it is clearly a National issue?
I can’t wait to travel to all of our great States to do this groundbreaking research. Imagine what the answer to this problem will do for our GDP.
Actually – maybe I should go to the UN with a request for $250M as this HAS to be a worldwide issue.
Imagine the possibilities here. And the frequent flyer miles.
