I totally agree that we all should keep an eye in the mirror and if we are holding up traffic, pull over and them pass when you can safely. For those that get bent out of shape when your being held up (and yes I'm guilty of that myself) ease keep this in mind. If you are stuck behind someone for 30 minutes driving 10 mph below the speed limit, you will be 5 miles short of where you would have been had you been driving the speed limit. If you are driving 60 mph that means it will take you 5 minutes to make that up. Rarely is 5 minutes going to ruin your day unless your on the way to the emergency room. I know it's frustrating and like I said, I'm guilty too, but if you do the math it's not the end of the world.

We were on that highway a couple years ago but didn't even see a car along the highway until we arrived. Desolate to say the least

Last August, a friend and I drove up to Wyoming (it was the third time we made that trip). We lost two hours on that trip, one hour to road construction (actually having to stop) and the rest because of pokey drivers who wouldn't pull over (including a few motor homes). We actually timed each road construction delay so the rest was due to the inconsiderate pokey drivers (I have more accurate terms for those drivers but Mama told me not to use those words). We never went over the speed limits (except to pass).
