Letter of the Month
Move Over
I'd like to introduce Left Lane Drivers of America; a website dedicated to reminding slow drivers to get out of the left lane.

As traffic gets increasingly congested, it's time for citizens to reclaim the left lane. Left Lane Drivers of America is a grassroots effort to get slower traffic to move right. More and more often, you find slow drivers in the left lane, causing headaches and frustration to those of us who have places to go and people to see.

Some of these offenders are timid and tentative, some are completely oblivious to what's going on around them, and some are self-appointed 'hall monitors' regulating what they have determined to be the proper speed. Whatever the case, it's time for us to raise awareness and get out of the left lane.

In order to actually assist slower drivers to get the point, Left Lane Drivers of America offers copyrighted windshield decals which boldly display their sentiment in the offending driver's rearview mirror. The decal, which reads "Move Over" also has a large arrow showing them where to go. Both are displayed backwards so they read properly in the rearview mirror.

The idea isn't to be rude or pushy, but to offer slow drivers a gentle prod, reminding them of the need to either pick up the pace or make room for those who choose to drive a bit faster.

In fact, slow drivers need to move over. In many States, the left lane is supposed to be the passing lane, and slower drivers can be cited for obstructing traffic. Those who stake out permanent positions in the left lane tend to provoke those wishing to drive faster to adopt the dangerous strategy of passing on the right. Without knowing it, slow drivers can easily become a safety hazard.

Moving over is a matter of courtesy and safety. It's also a matter of doing one's part to help traffic flow. And it is the law in many states: Stay to the right except to pass.

Left Lane Drivers of America is doing something to help improve traffic flow on today's overcrowded freeways.

You've got our support. After all, that's how they do it in Europe, and one reason the accident rates are so much lower, despite higher speeds. It's a safer way to drive. So next time you're on the freeway, look in the mirror and move over. And how about getting people to use their blinkers when turning?
