Learn how to drive on the 404 !!

The leftmost lane, (lane #1), on most highway in NA, is known as the passing lane, (fast lane). Hence, there are road signs that said "Keep right except to pass" or "Slower traffic keep right".

Passing a slower vehicle on its right, it's not just unsafe, but could also be illegal.

BUT, sometimes, some of those dxxb fxxk "drivers" out there leave me no choice.

So, STOP cruising on the passing lane at 95 kph and talk to your bff on the cellphone while thinking you are pacing the highway for the rest of us. If you see no car in front of you and 10 behind you, MOVE OVER.


On the 404, some areas have the HOV on lane 1, cars on HOV cannot (and should not) cut back to lane 2 anytime they like. ("Solid Line Do Not Cross"). Therefore lane 2 should now be treated as the passing lane and what I mentioned above will apply.

Please stop cruising on the lane next to the HOV ! It's for passing!

Yup. That "Emily" from Alberta with her funny way of talking. The producers actually have to use subtitles to "decode" her words.

I agree, most drivers on the 400 series do not have common sense or take note of what is happening around them. It's sad really.

Don't do 90 in the left lane.
Don't change into a lane with a faster moving car approaching.
If you are in the left lane doing 90 and there is line of cars behind you and no one in front then MOVE!!

Use your mirrors people and pay attention

That IS the speed limit. So you can't really bitch about the speed - however you are correct in that they should not be in that lane all the way~

This is typical Toronto traffic...

Once you are out of the GTA, people drives a lot better.

The funny thing is that when we were in Buffalo, most of the bad drivers had Ontario plates

wait until you run into some hill-billy in a ford f150 pick-up truck... he'll sacrifice a ding on his shiny bumper to throw you into the ditch.

I was on 404 from 16th to Finch this morning at 7:30 and it was a bit slower than normal and there was still quite a bit of snow on the highway.

Doing the EXACT speed limit doesn't give that driver the right to stay on that lane.

Unfortunately, some people think otherwise...

The problem is that driver's ed is not mandatory in Ontario, all you have to do is pass the written (which is easy) and pass the two levels of licensing (which is also easy depending on where you take your exam)

So if you have a bad driver teaching their off-springs how to drive, they won't be better drivers, they will be worse...
