-is 180 degrees BACKWARDS! The police should be arresting the wreckless/angry aggressive drivers doing all the insanely dangerous lane switching.
Ticket impeders as well as agressive drivers but keep to the right, especialy if you are driving slower. WHAT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS?
IMPEDERS CAUSE A BIG % OF AGRESSIVE DRIVING

If a person is going the speed limit and everyone around him is speeding it is the majority who are speeding that are making things dangerous not the one obeying the law... That is the fundamental misunderstanding in this whole argument . there needs to be a huge crackdown on people going 10 mph over the posted limit on freeways.. OPS should be writing hundreds of tickets per day in Portland alone...
Move to the right, it's not up to you to decide how fast someone can safely drive.

We don't have "speed envy" here. No "left lane police". If you want to try to keep up with the buses going over the mountains, go right ahead. But if you decide to get in their way by sitting in the left lane expect to be forced off the road and not gently.
You have the best roads in the world and spend more to control people's speed (and everything else) than anywhere. Why do so many of you think that the speed limit is so sacrosanct that you need to impede anyone who doesn't believe as you do? Why the deeply seated need to "be right" and fore everyone else to "be right"? Just drive your car.
