So my commute is not bad by some standards. Its 20 miles each way, 10 miles on I5. The vast majority of the time I can do the speed limit or better since I am going opposite of the masses (away from Seattle in the morning and towards Seattle at night. The thing is I have driven that route around 7000 times. ( 3500 round trip) and so I know it. There are are a hand full of spots that are a constant irritation. One is coming up from Auburn towards Federal Way on Hwy 18. Its a reasonable grade coming up. Three lanes the whole way. Speed limit is 60 and without fail you will encounter someone going 45 stuck in the passing lane. Often there is no one in the slow lane as they are chugging up 15 miles under the speed limit in the left lane. I would be happy to manage just 60 up the hill but I usually will go 65 or even 70 if I am able and usually the only way you can manage that is in the slow/far right lane. For that matter it irritates me anyplace when folks fail to grasp the concept of the passing lane. Its not the "fast" lane, its the passing lane. As in you should not be in it unless you are overtaking a slower car. Those signs that say "Keep right except to pass" and "Slower traffic keep right" are there because the LAW says if there are more than three lanes the left one is for passing only. And if you for what ever reason find it necessary to camp out in the passing lane MOVE OVER when someone comes up behind you going faster than you. It does not matter if your doing the speed limit, or even 20 miles an hour over the speed limit. If you are holding up traffic GET OVER! It amazes me how many people will get on the freeway and automatically just move over to the far left lane, even if there is no other traffic on the road! I have been coming home on I5 and seen just 10 cars on the road, All of them in the left lane. Its insanity Next one is how hard is the "on ramp" concept? At the end of this long sweep is the FREEWAY where people are likely going 60 ish MPH. Why would you not attempt to accelerate to, oh I dont know, The speed people are likely traveling on the freeway? It is nuts how many people are going 40 miles an hour at the end of the on ramp. Do you not know what to expect? Do you fail to grasp the concept of a freeway? People just assume that you will let them in, even though your doing 60 and they are doing 40. The traffic on the freeway has no obligation to make room for you. It is your obligation to MERGE at a safe speed, which happens to be the speed everything else is moving, And you are required to YIELD to traffic on the freeway, they are not required to yield for you. Dont pull out on to the freeway doing 40, Your going to end up causing a wreck. If you cant get your rig up to 60 by the end of the on ramp you shouldn't be on the freeway. Ok, next. When there are two lanes coming into an exit that merge into one the proper etiquette is one car from each lane. Dont try and force your self in the deluded notion that you are somehow now one car length ahead. What you are is a jackwagon who thinks your more important than everyone else. Same thing goes for when there is a line of cars waiting to take an exit or turn and you race up and cut them off. You might think your clever, everyone else just hates you. Have enough respect for your fellow man to wait like everyone else. You are not a special privileged snowflake able to push the world around to suit your needs. Ok..... I feel better. Now I am going to go play with my dogs a bit and enjoy the fact I am wont be back in the car till tomorrow What are your pet peeves?
