Hm? More often than not, I see people who are 30+ on their phones while driving, not some 20 year old. Most people who drive 110 in the left lane seem to be over the age of 30 from my guestimations. From my observations as a commuter it's not really millenials that are being a PITA - it's everyone.I am not that old, but I keep on running into situations (like this) where Millennials seem to be rediscovering the world.
You're right, of course, this problem is highly multigenerational. My comment didn't have enough context:Hm?

I'd rather them speed in the fastest lane than in the slowest lane or exit ramp, where some schmo doing 130+ is much more unexpected though. Doing 118 in the left lane I expect to move over to let some people get by.Most the bitchers feel the passing lane is their personal speeding lane.
When faster traffic wants to pass you, move to the right and let it pass in safety. When being passed on an undivided road where the passing driver has pulled into the opposite lane, pay attention to oncoming traffic and move closer to the right side of the lane. Be prepared to slow down to let the passing driver get in front of you more quickly to prevent a collision.
Driver's HandbookOn many high-speed roads with three or more lanes in each direction, trucks are not allowed to drive in the far left-hand lane. This means that the lane next to it is the truck passing lane. If you are in this lane and a truck wants to pass, move into the right-hand lane as soon as you can.
Slow traffic on multi-lane roads must keep right.
Driver's HandbookKeep to the right lane except when passing on two-lane sections where climbing or passing lanes are provided.
Traffic should keep to the right, using the left lanes for passing.
Use the far left lane of a multi-lane freeway to pass traffic moving slower than the speed limit, but don’t stay there. Drive in the right-hand lane when possible.
Good to see it's in there now. It wasn't when I was a kid.
