^this.

Not defending the other drivers action, but you should get out of the left lane.

Russbaker way is not a highway and he has no responsibility to move to the right lane.

The idea that slower traffic should keep to the right is not limited to highways.

Absolutely true, but if you see a bunch of people passing you or tail gating you, a decent thing to do is just switch to the right lane. Thus preventing people go in RAGE

True, but for all we know he is turning left into burkville 100m from where he was cut off. I'm just stating that in this scenario, focus should be pushed on to the OP getting Agressively cut off and NOT another 3 pages of meme405 talking about speed and left lane use.

Technically are roadways are "highways" aren't they? Either way, if there's two lanes, stay to the right unless turning or the traffic is bad.

all roads are defined as "highways" under the MVA, but most of us know that when the term highway is used, we refer to roads like highway 1, 91, 99 etc.. The reason "keeping" to the right for stretches such as russ baker way isn't efficient or safe is because there are stop lights every few hundred metres. People need to turn right and left. That is why the speed limit is 60km. Areas that are not just straight stretches of road have lower speed limits for a reason. Speed limits aren't directly a result of how many lanes there are.

Yes I was preparing to make a left at Miller Rd. I waved for the Brown van to go and he waved back as you see in the video, but he missed the chance when the Cube cut like that.

All 3 of those cars you saw in the video merged in from Dinsmore Br and they remained in the right lane as they approached, so nobody was behind me.

Spidey is exactly right about the safety and efficiency because it is not always easy to make a lane change in time to make your turn.

The biggest difference about being on a "Highway" like 1, 91,99, is that most exits will be on the right side so people don't need to be in the left lane to make a left turn or make an exit so that is why it is safer to be used as a passing lane.

As they should. I'll never understand the 50 speed limit. How do people that obey that even get anywhere?

I don't think I've ever seen traffic flow at 50kmh. Ever, except for jams.

When I have loved ones in the car, I can't go as slow as 50km/h in most places out of safety for them.

The day you know someone who gets into a collision travelling 50km/hr and hits another car at 50km/hr, head on.... then tell me 50km/hr is too slow. Or when a vehicle travelling 50km/hr hits a pedestrian, cyclist, or motorcyclist. There are more important things than to get somewhere 5, 10, or even 15 mins faster. But hey, nothing bad ever happens to anyone here, right?

why wouldn't you ESPECIALLY you have loved ones in the car? a faster travelling vehicle in an accident is worst off than a slower travelling vehicle.

Yeah I agree with you, I just meant I feel it's safer to keep up with the flow of traffic than to go 50km/hr, my post was worded poorly.

when the limit is 50, people go 60. when the limit is 60, people go 70. raise the limit, people just go faster.
