This is new, and annoying...

Drivers on a three or four-lane freeway who follow you, then pass you on the left, then cross in front of you and cross two or three lanes so they can exit!

Why don't they just switch to the lanes to their rights and exit?

Is it some terrible need to be seen?

Can we blame this on bad potty training? Do they expect an M&M?*

I blame MODOT, which I do for almost everything.

My money is on bad potty training. Or just a lack of self-control.

Wait, those two are really the same, aren't they?

You know how, in small towns, often times you'll see bear tracks (or paw prints or whatever) painted on the street that lead you to the local high school or college football field? Over here in Joplin, they have painted some of these on the streets around MSSU. It's funny the way they painted them, because they go along the right lane, then immediately cross two lanes into the left turn lane in front of the football stadium. It's like a 45-degree angle. I can imagine how many dumb people are going to cause traffic accidents when they cut off the left lane of traffic in order to make it to the game on time.
