Hwy 36 To Boulder

 Hi, daily drivers to Boulder. Just a message to all of you that may have not noticed the signs along that hwy that says "Left lane for PASSING only". The state of Colorado put them there to inform each of us to not use this lane on a full time basis. Now we all know that this is not possible during, well during pretty much the whole day. I know there are drivers that don't pay attention to who might be behind them (Big,white,3/4 ton,gas guzzling truck). Yea the one that you think is tailgaiting you, but is really a car and a half back, waiting for you to move to the right lane where the other cars that are going 65mph or for some godly reason slower than that,but NO you choose to stay in the left lane so the Big,white,3/4 ton,gas guzzling truck moves closer, maybe flashing their lights to remind you to move over. They would go around you, but remember that the other lane is for slower drivers. Now said truck is what I would call talegating or as they would say in Nascars world, DRAFTING your ass. Trust me you do NOT want to tap your brakes at this time. This is the time to MOVE over to the right lane. The state patrol does not need you to control traffic with your excact 64.5 mph driving when everyone behind you,oh yea that's right there are like 12 cars behind your ass. Please move over to the right. Because if you tap your brakes and wave that Big,white,3/4 ton,gas guzzling truck to back off, you will get tagged. So I'm begging you to to one of three things if this happens.

1. Speed up. It's the little pedel on the right.

2. Move over

3. Stay home

And while I'm at it. Please will anyone with a Kerry for Pres. sticker still on their car, get the #@*! over it and take the dang thing off. You look stupid!

Thanks

The Dog

P.S. Yes that's my Big,White,3/4ton,Gas Guzzling truck. My choice,my money!

 Scary, your right and I understand you should not speed over the limit. Right now the limit on 36 is 65 mph. The left lane is to go around cars that are driving slower than that. While the right lane can get crowded, there is still pleaty of room to move over when some one is behind you. Some people are just in a hurry and need to go a little faster than the speed. That's their choice and they can deal with the cops when they get pulled over. I know state pratrol officers and they allow a small amount of speed over the posted limit. NOT ALL,but some do. I've been surprised many times with someone coming from behind me,out of now where and I've just got out of the way. They need to be somewhere faster than me, I'm not going to stop them or impeed them from their destination. I think Mr.Dog said do one of three things. I would choose to move over, and not take three miles to do it.

If I ever drafted you Mr. Scary, I'm sorry, but thanks again for not tapping your brakes at me.

Look at it from another perspective. I drive US-36 every day, and the right-lane traffic is always bumper-to-bumper. There is usually no way to move over when someone is riding your arse in the left lane, and the don't-know-how-to-merge idiots who force their way into the right lane from the on-ramps (especially at 92nd/Sheridan and 104th/Church Ranch) don't help matters. I never tap my brakes when someone is "drafting" me, but I'm not inclined to do 80 in a 55 just to make you happy either.

Isn't it against the law in Colorado to drive in the left-hand lane holding up traffic on highways with speed limits 65MPH and higher?

It is rare, but i have seen it on the news where Colorado State Patrol were pulling people over for driving in the passing lane, not passing anyone. They were mostly giving warnings and telling people to accutially accelerate up to but not over 10MPH above the speed limit, and to move back over to the right after passing someone.

If you are not PASSING someone, MOVE TO THE RIGHT, signs are all over US 36 telling you to stay right EXCEPT TO PASS!!!

I drive this stretch all the time too everyday for a long time.
