Isn't 'Left-Lane Dick' a NJ-developed phrase, or is that just Jim Gearhard's term? Anyway, I know that specimen well from too many rides down the pockmarked 287, but if hival's telling the truth, he isn't one, as he posted that he gets out of the lane when another is overtaking him from the rear. Anyway, what I was saying is that hival's description of his driving is essentially, "stay to the right except when overtaking, and move out of the way if anyone is overtaking you." There is a German law, which, literally translated, is "drive right" which codifies this principle (and unlike the U.S. is strongly enforced both by culture and the police) -- i.e., if more people drove this way, our roads would be better! ~ Huntsman
