The only vehicle infractions that seem to be enforced in TV are speeding and DUI--big $$ hits for the community enforcement agencies, and the big $$ doesn't kick in unless the offender is doing 9+ over the speed limit

Just returned from a 3500+ mile trip to New England and back covering 10 states (mostly but not all on majpr highways). I think we encountered this problem in every state. Perhaps not to the extent we see it here, but it is far from a Villages problem only, and the drivers who stay left are not always older, even here. It seemed that many were on the phone or texting, which is another problem entirely and I'm sure could be a thread by itself.

Yes.



Yes, that is what I do if I only have a green ball.
Just out of curiosity. Do you use your turn signal once you are going west to let the other drivers know that you want in the right lane?

Yes.

When the traffic on my right opens up, I put on my turn signal and move to the right lane.

Some people think it should be. But no, it is illegal in Florida.

We did it in California, but personally I wasn’t too keen on my knees brushing up against cars.
