Let me guess: You pretty much stay in the left lane don't you? It's a passing lane, not "laminar flow".
The left lane is for passing; move back to the right when you're done. Thanks in advance.
This is regional.
Yes, slower traffic should move to the right as a common courtesy, but most states do not have an actual law that states that the "fast" lane is only for passing.
In Los Angeles, and other cities where you have 4 lanes, every lane is utilized 100% all day... and the moron doing 40mph in the left lane causes serious issues with normal traffic having to move to the right to pass.
