"Consider that break down lane as an exit ramp and use the same caution you would to exit the freeway for your destination."
That is jam on the brakes and decelerate to about 30 MPH before pulling over, right?
It never ceases to amaze me how many people will slow down in the right traffic lane before pulling into the deceleration lane for an off ramp on a super slab. That’s what those slow down lanes are for. Did they miss that day in driver’s ed?
