driving home for the holidays?

Do you know how to drive? Do you know how to drive on a highway? Many drivers don't seem to understand that driving on a highway is different from driving city streets, so let me explain the concept of fast lanes and slow lanes. The right lane is the slow lane, the left lane is the fast lane. You probably know that already, right? So you are driving fast in the fast lane, and someone behind you is driving faster. What do you do? You are already driving fast so you just keep your speed and don't do anything, right? WRONG! So wrong. Cause then the driver behind you has to break and turn off cruise control and then pass you on the right (which is wicked dangerous), and then speed up and set the cruise control again. Ever think of how annoying that is for the driver behind you? Probably not. So how do you avoid being such a lazy, asshole driver? It's quite simple. When you see a faster car coming up behind you, just move into the slow lane for a moment to let the faster car pass you safely and then move back to the fast lane and continue your own speed. It's polite, it's safe, and it's easy.

And while we're on the subject of highway driving-- never ever hang out in another driver's blindspot. It's stupid and dangerous, not to mention unbearably annoying.
