When drivers cruise or camp in the left lane, other drivers are forced to pass them on the right hand side, which can lead to road rage.
“They will almost clip your bumper with their back bumper almost like a sign of aggression and road rage. I see it a lot,” said Sanders.
ODOT doesn’t keep statistics on what incidents lead to road rage, but drivers that stay in the left lane can make driving dangerous for everyone else on the highways.
“If they’re going too slow in that lane, then it’s definitely annoying because that’s meant to get around for people and if you’re not allowing that they can get very angry at you I guess,” she continued.
It’s unknown how long this campaign will go on for, but more messages will be showing up for the Thanksgiving holiday.
