Left Lane Affection

by - Saturday, August 24, 2013

In this part of the World, the traffic rules say:
  1. The transit of vehicles must be done on the right side of the road;
  2. When necessary, the left side of the lane may be used to overtake or change direction
Is this clear enough? I think so, but for some drivers not really.

On a random day, while driving on the freeway (the location doesn't really matter), one will notice something very particular: 90% (or more!) of Belgian cars will drive on the left lane, even if the right one is free!!

I wonder: what kind of traffic rules do they teach in Belgium?!
You might think "Oh it's not only Belgian cars!", well... let's say this: over here, they are famous for that! Just a coincidence? Maybe yes, maybe not.
One thing it's for sure: it's annoying like HELL!!!!

Be prepared for more posts about my traffic adventures/frustrations or just remarks. :-)

Miss B, on the road!

  2. some time ago, the national air company of Belgium was: SABENA Air Lines, which means:

    S = such
    A = a
    B = bad
    E = experience
    N = never
    A = again


  3. I don't drive a car (which is very good for everyone else), but I understand miss B's frustrations all too well with those left lane driving douchebags in Holland....
