Don't you hate "Cruise Passers"?

    I invented "cruise passers" for stupid people who would put their car on cruise control on highway and they STILL leave their car on cruise control when passing another car. For example let's say a car A is on cruise control and is behind car B. Car B is going 65 miles per hour but car A is going 67 miles per hour and they remain the SAME frickin' speed when passing thereby slowing me down when I'm zooming down the highway!

    Some even manage, right after finally oozing past the other car, to disengage cruise control and immediately pick up an additional 20mph while pulling back into the right lane.

    Or some decided to stay on the fast lane and do a nice 5-MPH less than posted speed limit too.:soap:

    In my 3/4ton Dodge 4x4, I set the cruise and leave it. If traffic comes up from behind I'll get over if there's no free lane. If there's a free lane, they can go around me. Generally they are impatient and if I try to get over, they are in mid swerve and we have issues.

    In my other vehicles, I'm the tailgaiting ahole.

    yeah I have been there Chaz, its a pain in the butt.

    In the big truck I usually dont have a problem with people not "going on". 2500 Chevy HD, 3inch lift, 33" tires.

    On the bike, they either don't see me, or don't care. I just use it as an excuse to punch the throttle.
