    Has a foreign born / US citizen, I always thought that the left lane is supposed be the fast/ passing lane but after traveling the us 95 up and down the east coast, the left lane is always clogged with super slow drivers, and the right lane witch I thought was the slower cruising lane is almost exclusively used had a passing lane.
    I also noticed when I finally get the chance to pass on the right, thies people have this weird look on their faces, like if they have blindfolds on, totally oblivious on what's going on. They will NOT move at all!!
    So I'm asking you guys,did the rules changed? The right lane is the passing lane now?? Everyone is flighting by on the right lane, or perhaps people just selfish and don't care.

    This. It's a "me, me and me" society nowadays.

    Those are the same inconsiderate drivers that don't use their turn signals to indicate lane changes or upcoming turns and the same people that get on the freeway at 50mph expecting the entire column of 75mph traffic to slow down and let them in. And if the traffic doesn't slow, they just move over anyway.

    Actually here in Florida we have a move over law, you cannot hangout in the left lane even if you are above the posted speed limit.

    Well, nobody is enforcing that law, because most everyone's is hanging out cruising in the left lane.

    If im in a hurry and someone is in the left lane going the speed limit I get a few feet from their bumper, lay on the horn and flash the lights to wake them from their coma. Lifes too short to let stupid people waste my time.

    I find I have to pass on the right all of the time to get anywhere.
