They do that in NC too. Drives me crazy. I intend to tow in the middle lane whenever possible as it avoids most of these situations. I learned to do that when towing horses because standing on your brakes can potentially injure a horse. My other favorite is the one who flies up on your rear while there is plenty of room to go around you in the left lane that is completely devoid of cars. Eventually the get tired of being behind you but not until another car is coming up. This way thru get to cut that one off. And don't get me started on the slow poke that pulls out slowly in front of you and then forgets where the accelerator is.

While I would when not towing.. I stay out of the left lane for the 80mph people to drive on. I do not need to move over for you, you have the yield sign not me. You can speed up or slow down to merge. My cruise control is set..

Another pet peeve is when they cut in front of you and slow down. I love my air horn. I hope I scare the crap out of them. I would never want to be an 18 wheel driver. It is no wonder so many run right over some of these idiots.

That is also a reason I operate a dash camera all the time so I have a video record if one of the stupid drivers causes an accident.

Most times your can't move to the left unless its 4 am in the morning or your in the boonies! Forget being able to do that in New England on Route 95!

I love the ones that like to ride along side you for no reason as well!

Actually, there is no other way. It's your resposibility to yield not the other way around. Just because your driving a monster vehicle does not afford you special treatment; that's your choice. Unfortunately, I believe some 18 wheelers have been held responsible for accidents involving non yeilding to ramp zombies. Some people just have no concept and just because most highway travellers move over (as a courtesy) or yield to the zombies they think it is required and don't even look at the lane till they run out of on ramp. It's my responsibility to yield and merge, whether that means speed up or slow down.

Add me to the dash cam group. In addition to the one in the windshield my rear observation camera also stores a video of everything for the past six hours.

I never said they HAD to let you on. Only that they WON'T. Half of driving is obeying the law and half of driving is being courteous.

My peeve is the "disabled drivers". Those are the ones that drive with their state issued "disabled PARKING permits" hanging from their mirrors and blocking their view. Those are parking permits, not driving permits! We have one for the wife's mother when we transport her to doctor appointments. It is even printed on the placard "IMPORTANT: REMOVE BEFORE DRIVING VEHICLE". Can't remember how many times I was almost hit while towing by these careless drivers. Yes, I have a dash cam also.

My pet peeve are the ones that come flying past, pull into your lane, and then jam on their brakes to exit. Why not just fall in behind me and then exit? There was plenty of room.
