If you are in the #1 lane and not ACTIVELY PASSING other vehicles, you have NO business being in the #1 lane and are an IDIOT.
Any contention that if you are going the maximum speed, then it's fine to stay in the left lane, is a straw-man argument. Speed is completely irrelevant. The statute says you must keep right except when passing...it does NOT say, "you can totally stay in the left lane if you happen to be going the maximum speed."
If you are in the left lane and NOT actively passing, you deserve a ticket...and God's angry wrath...And I wish a plague on ALL of your camels.
LOL....crowded/busy roadways and traffic jams are REAL.
Laws say a lot of things.
The cops are the ones who pick and choose what they want to enforce (pick and choose). YEAH, Yeah, yeah......it ain't and never was about life being FAIR.
Tell it to the Judge.
PS......ever take much notice of, which lane the 18 wheeler trucks are using? LOL.
The law about using the #1 lane for ONLY overtaking. Pffft.....
