It’s that time again – The 10 Worst Snowbird Driving Habits # 1

Clogging the passing lane

Why is it that Arizona snowbirds like to cruise in the passing lane, at or way below the speed limit? Arizona has a “Move Over” law, as do almost all of the states and Canadian provinces you’ll see on license plates here in the desert during the winter months. This headline from a Canadian newspaper article earlier this year might not surprise you: “Driving in the passing lane: The Canadian disease.” You’ve undoubtedly seen these people honked at, get high-beams flashed at them, cut off, and blown past with middle fingers directed right at them, but none of it seems to register with the passing-lane clogger, who treats the highway as if they own it.
