    This ... Left Lane Blockers or LLB's think only of themselves. Selfish bastards or self important people... or just plain oblivious to their surroundings.

    I sometimes wonder if the turn signals aren't options that BMW drivers forget to order. Long ago that seemed to be true of Cadillacs, too, back when a Cadillac really was the Cadillac of vehicles.
    If I knew what I were doing, why would I take lessons?

    Forgot to mention the very speshul snowflakes who know they are running out of road who, rather than trying to merge into a line of traffic, race all the way up to the very front of the line in the adjoining lane so they can cut off all the people who have been patiently waiting in line. I imagine these people are jerks in every aspect of their lives believing that they are just so much more important than everyone else.

    Yes, indeedy. Disgusted as I get with bad driving, I am rarely 'aggressive' about anything people do, but this so galls me and apparently a lot of other people, that often in solidarity with other like-minded compatriots, I will not give way. Alas it seems there often seems to be some wimp who blinks and rewards these garden slugs for their efforts by letting them slip on ahead...
