Here’s what I was talking about a few days ago, when I was singing the blues about trucks on the interstate passing each other and taking their sweet time about getting back in the right lane.
Again, I don’t want to sound like a complainer. Obviously truckers and their rigs are doing a crucial job, keeping us all in supplies and the economy humming along. So the people driving those big rigs deserve all kinds of consideration and respect.
But on our two-lane freeways like I-5 from Albany south (except in Eugene), it sure would help to smooth the flow of traffic if they all adopted so uniform a speed, at least on the level parts of the highway, that they could stay in the right lane almost all the time.
By the way, lest anyone be tempted to call the cops, the video above was shot NOT with a smart phone, the use of which for photography or anything else while driving the legislature prohibited last year. (hh)
