Default Left Lane is for Passing, except in canada

The left lane is for passing, except in canada.

Slower traffic keep right, but nobody seems to obey.

Why is the left lane the preferred lane for everybody!?

First of all I don't believe there is a law against driving as slow as you want even in the left lane, however you can be ticketed for failing to obey if there are "slower traffic keep right" signs (passing lanes etc).

Anyone clear on the law?

You should see florida, there are billboards next to the interstate telling the whitehaired turtles to move out of the left hand lane and turn off their left hand turn signal. Its more polite, but they're there.

I don't know about the left lane law, but I know that in Ontario you can be pulled over for driving too slow on a highway. I believe the minimum is 60km/h, as ridiculous as it seems.

Young Drivers of Canada teaches people to move to the left lane as soon as possible because "statistcally, fewer fatalities occur in the left lane".

But having just done a trip to BC, things are much better here.

And if the laft lane is the fast lane average speeds are higher....kind of goes against the whole bit about the faster drivers dying more often.
