Line-cutters Get Just Deserves

Greg Hastings: "By stopping in the center lane they endanger others out there on the roadway by doing so, because you have people driving 65 miles per hour on the freeway and all of a sudden they're coming up to someone who's stopped in the center lane, trying to wait to move over into the right lane so they can get off the freeway."
