Let's hope this is the beginning of something...

June is Lane Courtesy Month

WAUNAKEE, Wis., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Motorists Association
(NMA) has designated June as Lane Courtesy Month with the slogan "Do The RIGHT
Thing!"
Lane Courtesy, also called Lane Discipline, has a powerful influence on
highway safety, traffic flow, and congestion. Arguably, its effect is more
important than speed limits, traffic enforcement, or any other attempt to
control driver behavior. Ask almost any motorist what most raises their ire
when using major highways and the answer will be "failure of slower traffic to
keep right or yield to the right when faster traffic approaches."

Lane Courtesy is desperately needed on our roads. NMA has developed five
topical articles that address separate aspects of the Lane Courtesy concept
and hopes you will consider using one or more of these articles as the 2004
summer driving season begins.

"Do The RIGHT Thing!" June is Lane Courtesy Month: This explains the
development and decline of lane courtesy in the United States.

"Do The RIGHT Thing!" For Safety - Why Lane Courtesy is Important: The
safety benefits of lane courtesy are often overlooked. Learn how our roads
could be safer. http://www.motorists.org/right/releasetwo.html

"Do The RIGHT Thing!" Learn Lane Courtesy: Before lane courtesy can
become commonplace, the driving public will have to adopt a few simple rules
of conduct. http://www.motorists.org/right/releasethree.html

I Won't "Do The RIGHT Thing!" I'm Driving The Speed Limit: Even though
lane courtesy is a win-win situation for all highway users, some drivers
refuse to embrace it. Here's what can be done to address this problem.

How Do We Teach Drivers to "Do The RIGHT Thing!": Regardless of the
obstacles, America needs and deserves a lane courtesy ethic.

Me too.

I have a knack for finding the slowest driver on the road. If I find them in the left lane, I wont tailgate or flash lights. I move over, and inevitably find someone -10 under speed limit.

Ultimately, I wind up doing something I dislike: pass on right.

It's nice that these law-abiding organizations emphasize that going the speed limit is not an excused.

Oh man...I swear everyone was a moron yesterday as I was driving to Aurora (Chicago Burb). I'm crusing along and I change over to the left to pass a group of cars, the last car gets into my lane to pass the other cars ahead of them and goes just 3 over!! And once he was donw passing, he stays on the left lane!!! Unbelieveable!!! :mad:
