In Michigan, the left lane is for overtaking. You can be in the left lane for turning or if there is a constant flow of traffic (if the right lane is full you can stay in the left lane).

In Michigan, you cannot pass on the right unless there are three or more lanes going in your direction.

Much of the year I drive to work it is in the dark. Some of the year I get home when it's dark. I find that driving close enough and offset enough to keep your headlights in their eyes to be sufficiently effective at persuading them to move over. There are some that won't, and that's OK. They think they're "teaching you a lesson" but meanwhile they get upset and I have something to talk about when I get in to the office. I mean, really, the only difference to me is that it takes a little longer to work, I don't get to use cruise control, and I cycle my foot between the accelerator and the brake every couple seconds. And I listen to SXM 37, even if a crappy song comes on. Big deal, it sure beats thinking about what I'm not going to get done on my way to work that day.

There are some that think flashing headlights and brakechecking works. Usually BMWs (preferably ghettoclass 3 series or low-rent leased 5 series) or 7th generation Malibus with baller tint for whatever reason. I don't know why flashing headlights would work on a pickup with autodimming mirrors but whatever. Brakechecking is funny because do you really want to get pushed out into the ditch by a 5500lb truck? And brakechecking is a two way phenomenon... do you really want to brakecheck a truck when if they get out in front of you they can do the same... and they have more swept area on their rear brakes than you do on your fronts? Either one of those things is escalation and admittance that you know you're a piece of shit blocking traffic... why wouldn't you just play ignorant?

You are incorrect on the no passing in right lane shenanigans. 4 lane roads (2 lanes going each direction) you can pass in right lane or left lane i.e. I75 is only 2 lanes (ea direction) in several spots on my route up north. Realistically on any 4 lane rd (2 lane ea direction) there are no rules as to which lane can pass the other (I.E. telegraph). I am not sure why you even made such statements, even if it is some sort of "law" that you cannot pass in the right lane (doubt it), it is one that no one knows about except you so no one is going to write or receive a ticket for it anyways. LMAO

Because if there is slower traffic on the right and I am passing them, then I would have to get behind the slower moving traffic and slow down to let you pass.

Fuc that. If i'm doing the speed limit and passing vehicles, you can wait.

There are many different kinds of 4 lane roads. I believe the "Left for passing only" rule applies to Closed access roads (Exits, not intersections). I could be wrong.

If the other 'law' that someone said about not passing in the right lane were true for all 4 lane roads, it would be illegal to pass someone turning left by using the right lane.

If someone is riding my tail on a closed access roadway, I keep my speed to where it is. Even if you're on my tail. It doesn't effect me (It's your fault if you rear end me). The closer and longer you ride my tail, the slower I take to merge to the right.

So much talk about common courtesy and nobody has brought up the fact that it's extremely rude, and dangerous, to ride someone's tail at high speed. If you're already past the speed limit there is also NO REASON to push the person in front of you.

That being said, I get over as soon as I can to let people pass me.

Hey stupid! No one said to pull over behind a slower car. Get done passing (in a reasonable time) and then GTFO of the way! Just like I said in the post you quoted me on. Read much or are you Padelin's twin sister?


Can someone please confirm that Padelin is a female for me? I am serious.

"If all lanes are occupied by vehicles moving in substantially continuous lanes of traffic then a driver can use any lane available."

Suck it. I'll drive where I want.

you're missing the point you fucking retard, when you are done passing, and there is open lane to the right and you are holding up traffic get out of the fucking way.

So "suck it, I'll have no fucking problem cutting you off while you tow your 38ft fifth wheel trailer like an asshat and hopefully scaring the living shit out of you and your children because you had to express your superiority by sitting in the fast lane for no fucking reason"

Haggar is also an idiot.

I don't conceal carry, but I guess I could chuck an empty whiskey bottle from your stash at them.
