Had another guy floor it out of his apartment complex to pull right in front of me and go 10 slower than I was. There wasn't a single person behind me. Then he gave me a dirty look in his mirror when I was right up on him...

Joe Cool was in front of me yesterday while we were creeping down I-10 with rush hour traffic. All I wanted to do was enjoy the weather with my windows down, but all I could hear was the constant drone of his exhaust while he played frogger to advance a whole 2 cars up in line. We're all very impressed by your sweet Flowmasters middle-aged Mustang guy.

Yesterday some lame prick behind me in rush hour traffic on I-10 was creeping along with his windows down. You should've seen how jealous he looked when I swerved between cars to get in front of a couple people. Would be hard not to be jealous of the sweet Flowmasters on my 'Stang!

Ha, it was mostly tongue in cheek. I'm just getting old.

coming from the car next to you at the stop light so loud that you can't hear anything in your own car. However, the free massage is kind of nice.

Near enemy territory.
The other night when I heading into there was this mustang reving it's engine at every stop light. When we get on the highway he guns it to 80 so I decide to take off after him since he didn't notice my patrol car and we were heading towards my city. Pulled alongside him and just stared at him. He immediately decided to follow the 55 mph speed limit. :)

What drivers need to know about the Oklahoma left lane law now in effect
  • Ian Smith
  • 3 months ago



OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol was pulling drivers over Wednesday for violating the state’s new left lane law. The fine is up to $249.

“Basically, in simplest terms is, if you’re not passing a vehicle or overtaking a vehicle and you’re in the left lane, you’re in the wrong lane to drive,” said Trooper Clayton Fredrickson.



The new law applies to any road, street or highway with more than two lanes.

During our ride along with Fredrickson, several people were pulled over for violating the law.

“So, I’m going to stop this person because they’ve been in this lane for about a mile now and they’ve had the opportunity to move over, so we’ll get them stopped and educated about the new law,” Fredrickson said.

Fredrickson explained to the woman why she was stopped.

“The reason why I got you stopped is because you were driving in the left lane there," he said. "Not sure if you knew this or not but, November 1, the new law took effect.”


She got off with a warning.

“You were driving in the left hand lane,” he told another driver. “In Oklahoma, unless you’re passing somebody in the left-hand lane, you need to be in the right lane, okay?”

Fredrickson said there are several reasons for the new law.

“Probably to help ease the congestion a little bit," he said. "Probably to help emergency vehicles responding to emergencies.”


But, there are exceptions:

  • You can move into the left lane if you need to allow someone to enter the highway. However, you must move back to the right lane as soon as you get the chance.
  • You’re also allowed to move to the left lane if the lane is an exit or an entrance to another highway.
  • OHP said congestion is also a factor: if the flow of traffic doesn’t allow you to move to the right and you are going the speed limit, then you aren’t breaking the rules.
  • OHP also said you can’t move to the left lane and exceed the speed limit just to pass other cars that are going the speed limit in the right lane.

Freaking Amazing!!! Dallas to Okc in two hours and fifteen minutes. In heavy traffic. Left lane wide open and everyone moving with better attitude. It works.
Well, glad it was working on 35 because it sure as heck hasn't made any difference on metro area highways...

What part of Dallas and what part of OKC? Just trying to decide how impressed I should be. :)
Mile marker 125 in Okc to 460 in Denton. Plus another 10 miles on residential roads. 180 miles total. You can calculate avg speed from there.
It didn't increase the speed limit.

Yeah, 81 is enough to get a pretty good sized ticket from the state troopers. Of course depends on what tag is on your car as to which state that ticket will come in.
