And here is one chiming in now. As you can tell by John's additude and name calling he would fit the bill. "I'm not moving over I'm staying right here". YOU are a major reason for accidents. Refresh yourself on the rules of the road. Now down to your WT level for a bit, you self centered jerk.

Between those texting, makeup, talking on speaking phones, and just driving wrecklessly in our stretch of freeway we have a minimum of 1 or 2 serious wrecks a week, well that are reported. Who knows how many are not reported right? Cutting from lane 3 onto the lane 1 to get off at Los Alamos, or Winchester!! Yep same ole story, same ole...............

I guess I'll have to reread that section in the rule book were it says it is OK to drive 80 in a construction zone that's marked 55! Sorry!!
