ALLENDALE, MI – Lake Michigan Drive. M-45. The “I don’t know how to get my slow ass into the right lane capital of the world.” The Grand Beacon recently talked with a Prius driver about common courtesy in the operation of a motor vehicle on the iconic state highway.
The Grand Beacon: So what’s the deal with driving from Standale to Allendale in the wrong lane?
Pretentious Parker: Well I’m a GV student, “Laker for Life!”, and I need to make a left hand turn onto Campus Drive, so it just kind of makes sense.
TGB: I see. Kind of makes sense. Undeclared humanities major. Right?
PP: That’s right! I can see why you’re in the media.
TGB: Do you realize that you’re supposed to keep right and only drive in the left lane to pass?
PP: Hey that’s not fair. Everyone on LMD breaks a law or two. For some it’s speeding. For others it’s texting and driving. For most of my sorority sisters, it’s driving aver drinking a few White Claws…wait…you are going to print that last one are you?
TGB: You aren’t going to drive slow in the left lane anymore are you?
TGB: Just like we won’t print this. Win-win.
