Title: New real bills for Colorado
Post by: 92UrS4 on February 20, 2004, 12:51:55 PM
An excerpt from the 9news article:

Quote
The panel approved two traffic bills Thursday that include the fast-lane provision and also prohibit drivers from obscuring their license plates and using devices that turn traffic lights green.

There are remotes, but the big thing with trucks is to install flashers or strobes into the grille so they are hidden, then turn them on to trigger the sensor on the lights.

We need a law in this county like they have in German and the majority of Europe that says unless you are engaged in the act of PASSING another car you may not drive in the left lane.  I got a bigger ticket for driving in the left lane, for a very short period of time, on the Autobahn that was bigger than any speeding ticket I ever got in europe. 8O

you can drive in the left lane of the autobahn. for passing and driving, but only if your speed is well in excess of the rest of the flow of traffic (+50kph), and it is unsafe to constantly change lanes...

they need to make the minimum speed in the Left lane no less than 5mph under the speed limit and use for passing only, and make semi's use the right lane and no passing between the hours of 5am and 1130pm.

The only bad thing about semis in the right would be in heavy congestion areas like co springs and denver, ever try to merge between a few big semis?  Especially since it is legal to pull triples out here, ie 3 pups (28 ft trailers) for you non truckers..
IF we could just get the left lane for passing only the world would be a better place and I would not still be trying to covertly mount rpgs on my car to soothe my road rage.

in europe, semi's are not allowed to pass in left lane between 0500-2300hrs on 3 lanes they can pass in middle lane, but cannot go into the left
