For a long time, I have been wanting to make this point: When I was taught the driving laws of the state where I came from, I was told that if you choose to drive at a slower pace, to always keep to the right in the right lane. I was also taught if you want to drive at a faster pace, to always keep to the left in the left lane! I was taught that it was the same law in every state in this beautiful country of ours, and as far as I know, that driving law still holds.
So if that is the case, I would like to bring this to the attention of all the drivers in Asheville (let alone the whole USA) to realize how much road rage is caused by this very matter of not driving in the correct lane [appropriate to] your choice of driving speed. And it is a choice; driving slower or faster depends on you!
If you want to help prevent road rage as well as accidents, please … move over to the slower lane and help prevent [the] frustration of drivers who choose the fast lane. This will benefit everyone on our streets here in Asheville and wherever we travel on this great country’s highways. And of course, it [should] go without saying: Try to stay within the speed limit!
Please! Pass this article on to every person you know, as a reminder of an ever-growing, urgent need to follow this traffic law by simply being kind enough to move your vehicle to the right of the center line!
