Aggressive Or Ignorant?

I wondered if this guy was making a point that this car should have been in the left lane? He sure didn't like to leave much room when he passed someone.

A lot of gas and brakes to look ignorant.

Sometimes I forget that people need maps to get around. I can't remember the last time I ever looked at a map. Being a man I would probably just drive in circles before I would ever ask directions if I didn't know where I was going. I was thinking the guy above here maybe should have used this lady's idea.

The guy in the green truck definitely pulled off a d*ck move. But in all fairness, should that maroon Honda have been sitting in the left lane with faster moving traffic coming from behind? When my dad taught me how to drive (a loooong time ago), it was drilled into me to stay right except to pass. However, that concept seems to be lost on most Minnesota drivers. I see more drivers then I care to acting as left-lane cops, almost ensuring anger and frustration erupt behind them. I'm not excusing the green truck driver's actions, but I can understand the annoyance caused by left-lane blockers.

I agree with you. The think the guy driving the truck's name is Jake the driver. Looks like something he would do.

Jake the driver, is he something like Joe the plumber? :-)

Seriously, though, lane discipline in Minnesota is sorely lacking. If there's a line of cars behind you, or if people are passing you on your right, then you're probably one too many lanes left. Besides, why would you want to aggrivate a speeding or aggressive driver behind you? Because you legally can? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me -- only encourages road rage.

I've never met either but I can say that if you don't like something your hearing, reading, or watching, change what you are doing, don't complain about it Jake. Okay, I'm good now. This red car didn't really have a chance to move as the truck came up pretty quick. But maybe they never planned on moving over.
