A$$hole with a jammer.

Tried to stop people from talking while driving.  I bet he's the same kind of dude that stays in the left hand lane while going the speed limit.  Enjoy the story...

Not just while doing the speed limit. I imagine he would stay in the left lane while people pass him on the right, too.

There's a big difference in legality between the two. It's not illegal to drive the speed limit in the left lane (in fact, it's illegal to exceed it), while many states do have laws to keep right except to pass. I should be able to safely use the left lane to pass without exceeding the speed limit, but drivers who take the law into their own hands selfishly make this impossible to do. And "that's the way it is" doesn't excuse the behavior.

My blood pressure rises just thinking about someone driving 55MPH in the left lane while attempting to pass a person in the right lane who is driving 54MPH. They just ride side-by-side while traffic backs up behind them. :frantic:

 

The article says the max fine for a first time offender is $48,000. I would think a mass disruption of communications would warrant a bigger penalty than that.  Although, I would pay extra to go to a movie theater that blocked cell signals.

Left Lane Larrys also assume that nobody needs to get somewhere faster than they do. Sometimes people have medical emergencies while in their private vehicles. Sometimes emergency vehicles have malfunctions with their lights and sirens. Its just good practice to clear the left lane when not passing.

i can only imagine how fast people would drive if 5 was 3 lanes. the "snail races" do a decent job of restricting high speed driving.

I wonder how he was discovered?  I drop data connection all the time (and sometimes calls) but just figure it's the network being shitty again.  I wonder if I've ever been jammed?

 

Edit - Ahh, I see it was discovered because of the regularity and time of day it was occurring.

Uh, if you have ever been "jammed," I think you would know.

5 has gotten so bad that I started using 99 now.  For a good portion of the central valley its 3 lanes and in better shape than 5 now days with a good bit less trucks  and a bit more interesting scenery to look at along the way.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
