How would you define a "slow" driver -

A) A driver who consistently drives at the legal speed limit?

B) A driver who consistently drives at 40kph in 50kph areas, and 80kph in 100kph areas?

C) A driver who is driving to the conditions?

D) Anyone just getting in your way?

Personally, I "move over" for anyone wanting to exceed the "limit plus 5 (used to be +10)" that I drive, except when there are more than 2 cars ahead of me doing the same speed. Then I keep my eyes open for them at the side of the road after being pulled over by one of those funny cars with red and blue lights... :D:D:D And yes, I have copped a speed ticket; deserved for doing 125kph...

The ones that really make my blood boil? The eedjitrvs who overtake in a long string of traffic doing 90-100, usually coming back from Pauanui, then fight their way back into the string from the other side of the yellow line.

RULE 1: if you're being passed on the left, you're in the WRONG LANE.

Wake up, on most of the roads I drive the left of where I am is a ditch full of long grass and not much else.

Still going to overtake on the left?
