Pet Peeve #832

I used to think it was just Ohio drivers that did this. It's not. It's spread to North Carolina. Of course, it could have been a transplant...I don't know. But good grief, why put on your left turn signal, and the go to the RIGHT side of the lane in order to make your sweeping left turn?

We're on a two lane road with a nice shoulder. I could easily have gone around, but Nooooo. I have no choice but to hold up because for some reason to make a left, you have to go to the far right of the lane.

My approach has always been to go to the left most side of the lane, keep the wheels staight and let others get around me. Oh, and signal, of course.
