Bulgaria rural landroads which are not nationalroads can be bumpy, even when they are new, I do´nt know hwy, maybe they are paving over the old asphalt, the Sofia roads used to be bumpy but they are fixing them all now, nationalroads are usually fine.

I don't know if you've seen this before

This is pretty damn funny. It's a little "adult", but educational, so I'd say under 13 not allowed.

PS: If this is a little too skybarish, feel free to move. I didn't think the people there would appreciate it as much, though.

Glad to hear it. Not very often that you can find humor that truly translates across all languages

The other kind is even more disturbing. They are not that numerous, but there are actual drivers who hold up the left lane because they don't think ANYONE should be driving faster than they are. These drivers think they are actually "calming" traffic, but in reality are creating more road rage.

It's pretty simple. If you want to drive right at the speed limit, stay right. You have no right to slow traffic in the left lane, even if those drivers are speeding. That is the job of highway patrol, not you!
AMEN!

I think I'm going to keep a small tray of eggs in my car and if I catch up to a left lane hogger that won't get out of my way, I'll toss an egg at his/her car as I'm forced to pass on the right.

Or hell, I could just make a personal sign that says "LEFT LANE FOR PASSING ONLY" or "SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT" and hold that up as I pass the jackass on the right.

Is there anywhere in the US(aside from rural areas) where people know lane discipline?

Austin just got a new set of tollways and one thing I've noticed is that drivers on the tollway are excellent drivers. People I've encountered in the left lane have almost always pulled to the side.

Is there enough enforcement to left-lane hoggers? The fines here are quite high for it.

Yeah, but the chance you get caught is minimal...

True, but in Europe other drivers force you pull to the right because they cannot overtake on the right. Here, left-lane hogs are cursed at, but generally people just overtake them as soon as they have a gap in the right lane. Plus, the chance you get caught in the USA is even smaller than in Europe.

Most police in the US don't give a shit about left lane hoggers or any other driver violation, even if its illegal under law. They only care about catching speeders for revenue. God, i hate US mentality sometimes.

It's exactly the same, maybe even worse in Europe, especially Netherlands and the UK which are full of fixed speed traps.

At least European drivers know how to move over to the right.

Haha, ditto on the second part. I've been wanting to do for that longest time but never got around to it.

They just passed a law in Colorado that if you are hogging the left lane on a motorway with a speed limit higher than 65mph/105km/h (So any motorway outside of urban areas) they can pull you over and fine you just for that.
