Have you ever stood on the side of a freeway? Man it's scary. Cars and trucks whipping by at a million miles an hour. On the right shoulder. Yet everyday on our highways, a police officer stands not on the right where I am but on the shoulder of the passing lane jumping out in front of traffic, flagging them down because their buddy caught someone on the radar a little way up the road. What are they crazy? Every year some poor police officer buys the farm because his butt gets stuck out in the wrong lane and he gets whacked. For what? Getting somebody for going 20k over the limit? If you're going 20k over the limit on our highways, you're barely keeping up; you're not causing any danger. What is causing the danger is the police officer. You're driving along, see a bush of cops in the centre lane, you hammer on your breaks so you don't get nailed, you cause a twelve-car pile-up up the road. This is safety? I don't think so.

So who's telling them to do this? It's crazy. What we need is intelligent speed limits to begin with and more intelligent enforcement of those speed limits. By the way, this whole program is another reason you should be driving in the right lane: the cops are always looking for speeders in the left lane.

maybe we should have different speed limits in different lanes ? like a 15 mile higher limit in the left lane, than in the right ? btw i ususally see them on the right side around here .....

If there was a differnce like tat between lanes, some fool would pull out from the slower lane into the faster lane forgetting about the speed diffrence and someone flying along would ram them.

oh i know
i'm not saying that this is the best plan ever .... i'm sure it's gonna cause a shitload of problems too , because if it would already be in use if it didn't cause any problems at all.
another idea is to have a senior citizens lane lol
