I'm trying to figure out who on the level of the State of Maine would block breakdown lanes from vehicular traffic. Even on slower roads - 45 mph, drivers refuse to slow a tad if there is a car in front of them that is turning, even if there are no oncoming vehicles that would necessitate any sort of delay at all. Drivers immediately move to the breakdown lane to pass the vehicle. It is an epidemic.
Even to slow down to turn into a driveway, drivers behind continue their speed as if there is no one else on the road. Turning into a driveway can be dangerous. Children have been killed.
If anyone has any ideas about blocking the breakdown lanes where there is need for them, please respond with ideas of how to address this. Police will not enforce speed limits, so it is unlikely they would become involved.
