That would be a good idea. People block others, don't go at traffic lights while they text and talk, and drive alongside of others for miles, seemingly oblivious. They won't move so others can get past. Witness the long lines of left lane traffic on busy two lane Interstates, like on I-95 in North Carolina. Everyone follows too closely while one ignorant and sometimes manipulative slowpoke keeps everyone else at bay. Some of the more aggressive drivers try to jump past on the inside lane and cut in later. This might keep people from blowing a fuse because of others' pigheaded inconsideration.
