This was the tweet with the above photo:
This was on Rt 65-N this morning in rush-hour traffic. Was in the right lane for a while then decided to switch lanes (neither lane was moving as there was a red light). Sat straddling the lanes for 5 mins until the light turned green and left no room for anyone to pass him.
Who hasn’t seen this? The driver, in a big hurry, just has to switch lanes RIGHT NOW and block everyone else from moving forward up either lane. Sometimes you even see this on the Fort Pitt Bridge heading outbound or just before the Squirrel Hill tunnel entrance outbound.
This is exactly why this blog was created… to call out the people, like this driver, that are full of self-importance, without regard to other Pittsburghers.
Hey Range-Rover-Grover, yep, we see your fancy car. And we’re pretty sure that you have to get ahead of everyone because you have something pressing at a very swanky office where everyone knows you’re the boss and you’re important. BUT.. in traffic, we all put our driving gloves (and our pants) on the same way. There’s no class war between right and left lanes of traffic.
Did anyone ever teach you the art of driving in traffic, activating your turn signal, looking for a spot in your side view mirror and gradually sliding over into the next lane? Ahhh who needs skill and courtesy when you’re driving anyway?
We’re taking a WILD GUESS and presuming that you’re the same person that walks through the mall, yakking on the cell phone, and suddenly stops DEAD in front of a line of people because you’re making a point in your conversation..you know.. when it looks like a bad Bunny-Hop Line Dance accident!
The rest of us would like to get to where we’re going too so, unless you’re part of the Steelers Offensive Line and you’re PAID to block up all of the lanes, pick a lane Ya Jagoff!
