During my commute to work, I primarily drive on a two lane road in a rural area. Every day, without fail, I get stuck behind someone driving at or below the speed limit and it frustrates me. I would simply pass them, but it seems EVERY time there is a passing zone, there is oncoming traffic preventing me from passing. Is there a term for this phenomenon?
- As soon as you change lanes to a faster lane, it becomes the slowest lane.
- If you try to change lanes to get off the ramp, the guy in the lane to your right will always speed up.
- On a two lane road, no cars will come from the opposite direction where the lanes are divided by a white line. However, as soon as it's allowed to bypass, the opposite lane is jammed. source
- The vehicle in front of you is traveling slower than you are.
I would say you got bogged down or squeezed. Stuck works too.
