Lane Discipline and the M3 Driver

Curious what your respective rules are for lane discipline. A few of mine***** I move over for anyone and anything if they are going faster than I am and there is clear road in front. If anyone is going faster than I am they are probably moving. I pass every Prius with extreme prejudice. If you are driving anything that says Honda, that isnt an S2K, go away, I dont want to play. I almost never use my high beams, just not an effective strategy any more, I find the rev match downshift usually wakes them up . I never ever cut people off, no reason to wake up the nutjobs, I go on my merry way. I also NEVER do the jam on the brakes thing, not sure who thought that one up but its just such a lose lose proposition (see above, move over). Yours?

One time I had to go home due to a family member having a medical issue who needs to be taken to the hospital. When I was on the highway all 4 lanes have people going constant 55-60mph with no traffic in front of them. I tail-gated and flashed my head lights which all did not work. I was so angry that I took the hazard lane to pass all of them and then looked at each of them and they all looked like they don't give a flying fuck about their surroundings or what they're doing.

I agree with all of these. Another thing, if I'm in the left lane and there's somebody in front of me going slower (which there ALWAYS is, Oklahomans don't know how to use the left lane) I try to give them a left blinker to let them know they should move right. I try not to pass in the right lane but sometimes it's unavoidable here.
