Patrol Targets Left-Lane Campers

Item: State Patrol cracks down on left-lane campers/Scott Gutierrez, Seattle P-I

More Info: Motivated by complaints from the public, state troopers stopped more than 200 King County drivers last month for hogging the left lane on the freeway, the State Patrol reported Tuesday. Twenty-four drivers were issued citations, but most were warned about their driving as part of a campaign to educate drivers on the left-lane travel law, Trooper Julie Startup said.

Question: Many of us are annoyed by left-lane campers. Is that your top peeve involving freeway travel?
