Man, I met some real selfish people like this on the Tail of the Dragon earlier this year. Guys in pick-up trucks and slower cars, despite them knowing and seeing how fast everyone's going, they'd refuse to slow down in the straights to let us pass... on a normal road it'd be no prob, but on the TotD you can't take risks since the straights aren't that long.

It's just common courtesy, people need to move over (just like those people I occasionally meet in the left lane that refuse to yield).
