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