Stay the f**k out of the fast lane when driving through PA! or at least do the speed limit, better yet, 10 over.

Anyway, why is it that there are so many old "K-beck" and Ontario drivers heading south through PA every single day? Going to Florida for the winter?

ggbaird maybe you can shed some light on this?

I don't know what to tell you bones. Not sure why they're so many Canucks heading Stateside, but the clueless drivers hogging the fast lane is an epidemic up here. Drives me frickin' nuts! It's not just the younger generation either.

9 out of 10 of them I see are older, like, senior citizens. I drive route 81 110 miles a day for work and that's all I see, all going South, all older. Almost all in the fast lane going slow. I don't understand it. And most are in BMW's or Mercedes. If they're heading south for the winter, you'd think they'd fly.

We get the French Canadians driving through all summer heading to Wildwood. The ones you see no doubt are heading to Florida for the winter. A lot of Mobile home parks in Florida are French Canadian and all the signs are in French. They don't want to talk to you or other Canadians that speak English. When I was in my young 20's, I lived in Hollywood Fla. and had many a run in with them at the beach.
Here on the highways the most problem drivers are from NYC. The other New Yorkers know how to drive.

There are 'some' decent people from Quebec, but in general, they are extremely ignorant and have a definite hatred for anything english. Of course our government usually bends over backwards to keep them happy.

I'm sure you are right. I have met many nice ones in Vermont and New Hampshire. In Quebec I have been given a hard time for not speaking French.

That "owning the left lane" syndrome isn't exclusive to the area described.

Pretty bad around the large metropolitan areas in general. Notably bad in my area.

These vehicles 80% of the time have a driver that has a phone tied to their hand and head. Common traits that these drivers are oblivious of what's going on around them, have zero consideration for others.

I do believe some cars have installed large magnets in their vehicles keeping them door to door with cars in the adjacent lanes.

Even when prodding politely, completely filling up their rear view mirror with a large bowtie, blue oval, or ram, they won't budge.

I'm so temped to get a train horn. Guy in my neighborhood has one on his Dodge.
