A reason to move to OK?...

"Slow drivers beware: Oklahoma State Troopers are cracking down on motorists driving too slow in the left lane. KTUL's Abby Ross reports."

that's awesome. I personally think it's just as dangerous driving too slow, as it is speeding.

people go slow in left lane, cars get stacked up behind them, everyone tries to pass in the middle lane all at once, creates chaos and a lot of people switching lanes at the same time.

i usually just give them a flash or two, and if they don't move, i don't get too upset because I get to downshift and listen to that boxer scream

OK is a nice state, but too cold for my thin blood.

Thumbs up to the troopers. Those guys need to MOVE TO THE RIGHT!

I gave up flashing lights and have gone to putting my left signal on until they move over or I get to downshift and listen....

Other than give businesses and people driving tickets troopers serve no function in my book. Let me cite you one example of dumb ass ticket. My truck's mud flap fell off. Well my driver got pulled over in Nassau County and given about 9 tickets which most were things out of place on the truck and the mud flap missing. I had to go to criminal court for this big "offense". Here I sat and waited my turn among thieves, drug dealers in short the creme de la creme of society. I felt like in the song Alice's Restaurant in the Group W bench. What a wasted day that was. I don't wish troopers any harm but I could well do without them! That would be sweet!!!
