On March 7, I sent the following e-mail to each of the elected North Carolina Legislators. Only one had the courtesy to respond and she still didn't say anything. I believe there are 175 Legislators. Evidently they have forgotten November of 2010. Hopefully in 2012 more will be fired by the voters of this state:
"I would hope that during your ride to Raleigh this morning that you were on a four-lane highway and that you encountered people in the left lane that refused to move over for you and were determined to stay in the left lane because they know there isn't a damn thing that can be done to move them over.
“The NC Highway Patrol refuses to enforce the impeding traffic law on the books. This is the third year I’ve asked you to make a law like other states have wherein drivers have to move over for faster traffic. These states also have signs up reminding you of this. Their Highway Patrol also enforces this. I have asked Pat McElraft and Jean Preston to resolve this situation and all I get is that ‘studies have/are being done’!
You encounter this problem every time you go to Raleigh and return home. Your license plate does not impress those who refuse to move over. This one situation causes a lot of road rage.”
