So many drivers automatically drive in the left lane even when there are no cars in the right lane.
Note: After I posted this I googled "driving in the left lane" and found a chart by state. I am quoting PA law in the above paragraph. Different states apply the laws differently.
Very true, laws differ in different states. In MN I spoke to a State Trooper, the law is: whatever the speed limit posted IS the speed limit. However, it is not the law that people have to move to the right lane so speeders can pass. I believe this is not the law in any state, but again, each state is different.
The trooper said to me, its courtesy but NOT
the law to have to move out of the way.
I mean it makes since, why would the speed law all of the sudden not apply just because we are in the left lane?? The law is the law, if the speed limit posted says 65, it's 65 in all lanes. Not 65 in one lane then 90 in the other.
He also said, actually it's against the law to ride someone's a** (bumper).
