Third Lane Option

I've heard of the Third Lane Option and thought of how nice it would be to use it sometimes, but never have I actually seen it used until this morning. However, it was used poorly. Picture this: Four-lane highway with median turn/suicide lane. Four cars (I am one of them) traveling in the dark rain of the early morning, using both of the south-bound lanes. Here comes Mr. Ford F150 thinking that we four are going too damn slow. So he pulls into the turn/suicide median lane and passes us all on the left. Brilliant! We all caught up with him at the stoplight. And the next stoplight, too. And the next one. I'm glad he was in such a hurry to pass us because it certainly got him where he was going faster.
