So today I got off the i405 and apparently I was driving too slow after getting off the freeway and pissed off a bald fat guy in his toyota/honda suv. During the mess I read some of the words out of his mouth (cant hear him) and he punched the roof of his car a few times . After making a left, there is 2 lights before I make another left into my apartment complex. So I had to drive on the very left side because there is quite a few cars on the road. After making the first left, the light was red so obviously whats the point of driving speed limit, after all you have to brake and stop... Then we were off towards the next light and the fat guy keeps honking and flashing his lights at me. In my mind I thought wtf and ignored him. I didnt drive speed limit again since the next light was just turning red and the cars about 15 car lengths ahead of me were already getting ready to stop... so again... why go speed limit when you have to stop again? This fat bald guy tailgates me and flashes me none stop until we stop he pulls to my right (keep in mind there are cars in front of me and him). Funny thing was... his car was still moving while I first saw him yell at me and he almost hit the guy in front of him He commences punching his roof and shouting "Why you drive so slow in fast lane? Move to the slow lane!" I just rofl'ed and said "Cool story bro" and he took off fast when the light turned green again almost hitting the camary infront of him and cutting off a semi truck driver who was laughing the whole time watching. While typing this I just realized I had an AK in my trunk at the time.

TLDR; Fat bald dude tailgates, flashes, and honks at me for driving slow towards red lights and punches his own car while almost hitting the car infront of him.
in europe, they call this driving.

i'll play antagonist and say move to the right, like you're supposed to, if someone is on your bumper trying to pass and you're not actively turning left. left lane is for faster traffic, and by the word of the law, slower traffic is supposed to yield to faster traffic in the left lane. i know this concept is foreign to most drivers in america, but it's also a contributing cause of why the standard of driving is so poor here, although the poor quality of driver education is definitely the leading cause. you wanna coast between lights with all the other coasters, do it in the right lane. it would take 2 seconds to let him by and this becomes a non-issue. turning left 2 lights ahead is plenty of time to let anyone by.
