I've been pulled over, and ticketed, for "unsafe passing."

That being said, traffic laws are written and enforced by and for people with no imagination....and/or people who never read Nietzsche or Machiavelli.

If the road was supposed to be like waiting in line at the supermarket, they really screwed up when they wrote the traffic laws.

If the road was supposed to be safe, they really screwed up when they wrote the traffic laws.

If the road was supposed to be efficient at moving volume, they really screwed up when they wrote the traffic laws.

If the traffic laws were intended to be obeyed by drivers, they OBVIOUSLY really screwed up when they wrote the traffic laws.

If the traffic laws were intended to induce violations, generate revenue and employ police officers, they did an outstanding job when they wrote the traffic laws.

For most people, the experience of driving is THE most compelling cause of disrespect for law and for solipsistic behavior. Once you realize this about everyone around you, things really start to make sense, and driving gets a whole lot safer and easier.
