HAHA i love it.

with all the midwest travel i do for work I found out its usually someone from IL being a left lane leeezard followed up by people from Iowa

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Wisconsin drivers commonly will *not* yield the left lane for passing traffic.

Agree with Tom, WI drivers are very bad about this as well. I think that is where the IL drivers learned the bad habit.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

WI drivers are the worst. When you have an IL plate driving in WI you might as well plan on passing on the shoulder.

I've got WI plates, and I'm usually the one forced to use the right lanes for passing. Ha!

Yup. Just drove to Milwaukee from NW burbs yesterday and ran into a handful of left-lane retards, all with WI plates. And I wasn't going that much faster either, I know better than to speed in that state. But 65mph in the left lane in a 65 zone? Move the hell over dude.

All you Illinois driver are just as bad with driving in the left lane as WI drivers , go drive around the east coast and see what happens if you 50mph in the left lane

On a similar topic, the people that drive me up the wall are what I call the “cruise control zombies”. Lets say I am driving 75/80 in a 70mph zone. At that pace, I am passing most people in the right lane. And then I reach a bozo who is cruising at speed limit or slightly above in the right lane, and he moves over to the left lane to pass an even slower vehicle. These people do not have any regard for my car rapidly approaching them. They do not speed up to match my speed, they do their passing at the same speed they were cruising at. I end-up riding their ass and eventually hitting the brakes. It really screws up the flow of the trip.

Actually its not that bad in WI. once you pass Milwaukee they stay in the right lane. Anything near Il boarder and they show the same bad habits

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I think people from the suburbs and cities have no clue. When you get to farm country, people KNOW how to stay in the right lane.

This ^^^^

Up towards me, most people will stay in the right lane..... or at least move over in a decent amount of time.

Now, on passing lanes.... most fucktard pringled assholes speed up AND stay in the left lane so that you either can't pass, have to pass at a very high rate of speed in the right lane, or only one car gets by.

Then as soon as the passing lane ends, they slow back down to 55mph.

The best is the people you pass doing 75 on cruise control always seem to get mad and have to pass you just to get passed again cause they slowed back down

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Unfortunately I have found this to be true all over the country. I lived in DC/VA/MD for 14 years. Left lane hoggers galore. Lived in CT, TX, CA, OK... left lane hoggers galore. It's a general problem I think that varies in occurrence from state to state. Chicago area, I must say is pretty good at moving along on the highways. On the inside roads it's a different story. However, I must say IL has the worse traffic light system I have ever seen. It's designed as a "traffic calming" system to stop traffic constantly. Unfortunately it creates road rage and traffic lol.
