I am all for hybrids using the HOV but I cannot stand it when riding in the fast lane (left, by the way) only be held up by some hybrid driving like an utter snail. move over to the slow lane.

thanks.

It's the driver, not the vehicle who determines the speed and lane choice.

Of course. Therefore, I direct my remark to the drivers of Hybrids. However it works out that they move intolerably slow in the fast lanes, I ask that the cars be driven in the slow lanes.

grutzi.

How about you direct your yelling to all cars (hybrids, cycles, BUSES) in the left who are moving over for you. Guess you think you are God.

(Know I shouldn't even respond to this person but many a times I've been in the left lane getting ready to EXIT and some yahoo rides my tailpipe.)

Since when in the last three years is there a fast lane on HOV? There may be fast 1/4 mile sections, but there are no longer any fast lanes. Just pass on the right, or the shoulder, or tailgate until they move over. Sheesh.

How fast would you like the hybrid vehicles to travel?

Now hang on a second. Call me crazy. But last I checked it was slower cars ride in the right lane and pass on the left when safe. Europe has been doing this for years and it is downright curteous. This is ongoing problem in the United States and has recently been addressed by local governments. Some states have will ticket you for riding the left lane while not passing. Pennsylvania is one of them.

Slower than what though? The speed limit? Or slower than the illegal flow of traffic?

I can't imagine that the powers that be would want "slower traffic move right" to mean someone going 70 in a 65 mph speed limit when others are trying to go 75. That would be somewhat of an internal contradiction in the system.

SOV because you can, HOV because you care!

In Pennsylvania, the law clearly states slower than the flow of traffic. The left lane has been designated as pass only.

But when all lanes are full how can you say only use right lane if you want to travel the speed limit (65)? Consider all the buses that occupy the lanes that travel anywhere from 35-55? Then everyone has to travel in left. I gather that the people who want EVERYONE to travel in the right lane, except to pass, are the speed demons who want to travel in rush hour traffic at excessive speeds. "Rush" hour traffic doesn't mean you get to rush -- you get to travel the bottle necks with the rest of us.

In NORMAL flow of traffic, yes, slower traffic stay to right. But if you are going with the FLOW, then left/right doesn't matter. It only matters when someone decides to go against the flow and travel slower. Then that person should be in the right until his/her exit.

Also take into consideration that the left lane is the exit lane for the majority of HOV exits.
