Driving in the passing lane: The Canadian disease
The Globe and Mail
Ontario's rules of the road are clear: Any vehicle travelling at less than the normal speed of travel should drive in the right-hand lane. Similar laws apply in British Columbia, Alberta and other provinces. So why do people drive slowly in the passing lane? Why do they crawl along in the middle lane of a three-lane artery? Part of the answer is overconfidence: Drivers rarely think that they drive too slowly.

Regulation not needed
The Record
Do roundabouts need regulation? Nonsense. The first driving regulations were designed for roundabouts: Keep to the right. Allow merging traffic. The major reason traffic stops at roundabouts is the mindset of aggressive people. They believe if they get into the roundabout first then others must give way to them. They use the same philosophy in traffic at high speeds: Keep close so others can't get in front.
