I didn't even considered this aspect, but it seems to make sense. Well, I'm not sure if a delta would be less prone to that anyway...

I'm glad you guys understand what I'm saying.

People's instincts are to herd just like animals, and when we get behind the wheel of a 2 ton vehicle and given a set of road rules to operate by nothing really changes what we are inclined to do naturally.

People just like other animals like to stagger and fill in the voids.

They are inclined move in numbers like this, that's just the way it is.

Stagger, stagger, stagger.

People periodically pass me without completely leaving my lane. Good times.

I attended active shooter training on Tuesday and they had many examples of people that did what everyone else did, but did not live to tell about it.

Fortunately, passing people in their lane is abnormal!

Two weeks ago I was forced onto the shoulder by a dump truck merging from the left lane. When I overtook it, I pulled back into the lane about 5ft off the front bumper to express my displeasure.
