I’m back. Sorry for the light posting.
Last night we were stuck in a traffic jam caused by an accident for two hours between Chicago and Gary, IN. We litterally moved about four miles in just over two hours. No kidding.
There were three lanes, but everyone was instructed to move to the far right lane. When I saw a chance I moved over. Many others, of course, didn’t. That brings up a question.
What are your thoughts on following the rules in such a situation?
We sat in that lane for hours, and this was already after nearly ten hours on the road. Many of the cars that zipped past us saved a great deal of time. Is it morally “wrong” to do that? Or is it just “cattle” mentality to sit in the far right lane although the other lanes would allow me to move up without endangering ourselves or anyone else? I stayed in the right lane, so you know what my conclusion was last night, but I won’t say that I wasn’t close to choosing the other path.
Let me know what you think.
