Either you are a competent driver and agree that there is something wrong with everyone else out there
You're a friggin moron.
Add up the number of YES answers and score yourself below.
start with a definitions which should sound vaguely familiar:
Passing lane = meant for passing. That's right, passing. There's a reason why they don't call It the “driving right next to someone lane”. They also don't call it the “its okay to hang out in this lane as long as you're going faster than the speed limit” lane.
Accelerating Lane = Its meant for accelerating. That's right, accelerating. For those of you without a degree in physics, accelerating is loosely defined as the act of speeding up. If you aren't traveling the same speed as those drivers already on the roadway by the end of the accelerating lane then you've done something wrong. Note that I said “the same speed as those drivers” that you are merging with. Not necessarily the speed limit.
= Yield. Not stop. Not park. Not get out of the car and make sure that
nobody else is anywhere near you on the road. Those that confuse YEILD
and STOP will often quickly learn another definition: fender bender
Now, here are some more advanced definitions specific to this site:
Obstacle = A driver who insists upon remaining in the left lane long after they've passed any cars to their right, despite the fact that there are one or more completely acceptable lanes to their right.
Speed Regulator = A driver who parallels the car that they should be overtaking in the passing lane despite the fact that the passing lane is wide open in front of them.
Slowball = A driver who although thoughtfully drives in the slow lane just drives way to slow for current traffic conditions. If you're driving on a 40mph donut spare tire or are just not comfortable traveling highway speeds THEN DON'T DRIVE ON THE HIGHWAY.
Schizo-foot = either all gas or all brake. No in between.
Idler = similar to schizo-foot without the brake. The idler likes to gun the engine thrusting passengers heads back in their seats, or completely take their foot off the gas and slow down. These drivers have yet to discover the steady state nature of holding your foot gently on the gas to reach and maintain their desired speed. They also haven't heard of cruise control.

we work together we can all get to where we want to go safely, and more
importantly at the speed we all want to travel.
