Thanks to your paper, I now know the names of two of the people I might have seen in my rearview mirror, tailgating my bumper while I was driving 10 mph over the limit in the left lane and searching for a way to move over into a crowded right lane [“Drive, He Said” March 16 Xpress and “The Left Lane is for Passing,” March 23 Xpress]. I'd like [the writers] to know that it is actually legal to pass on the right in North Carolina on four-lanes. And it's perfectly legal to drive at the speed limit in the left lane. It is not legal to tailgate, even if you are trying to teach me a lesson for being in your way, or trying to make me drive faster, or just chase me out of the lane a little quicker.
That said, I do actually prefer to get out of your way, rather than attract another speeding ticket or trigger your road rage. And I don't mind at all if you pass on the right, if you can do that. The overtaking vehicle has that choice, if it can be done safely. Oh, and "giving people a taste of their own medicine" is not smart, effective or safe driving behavior. Such actions rarely end well. Mine ended with a ticket for speeding and following too closely; he was an undercover cop.
