Crump: Left Lanes & Old Drivers

They come roaring up from behind, pull over into the left lane next to your rear fender — and stay there. For miles. Mostly, they drive venerable full-size cars — Impalas or Crown Victorias — or pickups with camper shells, nearly all bearing bumper stickers that read “We’re spending our children’s inheritance.” They’re from Payette County or Boise County or Washington County, they drive squinting through the windshield with their noses up over their steering wheels — and just can’t quite make themselves go faster than 75 mph. So they don’t, and traffic backs up behind them. And on those rare occasions when these motorists do manage to get past you, they cut you off and force you to slam on your brakes/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.
