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.

Central California, two lane highway, one tractor trailer tries to pass another....

 

So bad.

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.

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.

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
