    When I was a bellman for the Holiday Inn, I met Jim Mouth that has the world record for the most cigarettes in his mouth. I've go a signed glossy of him somewhere around the house.

    Finally went to one of those "Escape Room" places last night. It was fun. :) We solved it with 4 minutes to spare.

    Just recorded a new message for VM saying I'll be out and returning on Monday, and email to a vacation message. I'm officially unavailable!

    So do they make you drive over to the right, along with the trucks? Moving with the flow of traffic is probably the most important safety aspect of driving, so this is interesting. What country is this?

    During probation period allowable speed on motorways is 90km/h. I usually drove 110km/h, since it a sort of "allowable deviation", though I could have easily driven 130km/h, since speed traps can't tell if you're a newb or not. However I never did so, just to be on the safe side, since as a newb you have to mark your car with a special sticker, or if police stops you (we have unmarked cars cruising and measuring speed) and sees your driver's license you can have some big problems with +40km/h speeding (big fine and, IIRC, driver's license is taken away for some period with obligatory shrink session, and a quick re-examination).

    Also, why do you think newbs are not allowed to drive on whichever lane they prefer. Just think about it, what if you have to turn right (crossroads/u-turns points). You drive as you see fit.

    For driving in heavy traffic, yes, you generally go with the flow, but outside of it you have to obey rules.

    Slower traffic should always be to the right, so if you can't drive the allotted speed, you'd be relegated to the right lanes. Which country is this or are you keeping this a secret? o_O
