I grew up driving in Boston, where the world’s most talented drivers enjoy the sport, and in Boston, people never dawdle in the left lane, clueless to the rules of common decency let alone the rules of common sense! They move to the right and allow the faster traffic to speed past them seeking to elude the traffic officers in hot pursuit.
