I don't know if this is a northeast issue, but why is that slow drivers insist on camping out on the left (passing) lane? Then, if you try and pass them on the right lane, they speed up. I don't think it's because I'm driving my BMW 535 (effort to keep it on topic ). I think some people genuinely don't give a $hit about the "rules" of the road. Drive down the Saw Mill River Parkway, and the right lane essentially has become the passing lane. Just venting.
