There may be some semantics issues here. The main point is to establish a standard where people understand that they should not sit in the left lane for any period of time unless they are passing/gonna be passing soon. I'll usually try to give the people sitting in the left lane a chance. If they don't move though, I will eventually pass on the right though.

^^^in arizona this could be solved by.......













.....not letting people keep there licenses with no evaluation until they are 65

I used to work in Casa Grande, and as soon as the snowbirds were here my commute to work to 2x as long (literally). Though soccer moms in big suv's chatting on their cellphones are just as bad, these old people out here tend to drive 10-15mph BELOW the posted speed limit, thus making alot of people utilize the left lanes.

How about this as an alternative... they have to take a driving test in a Lingenfelter powered f-body, with a very touchy throttle and no suspension work. The test will be simple... drive through a parking lot heavily laden with vertical steel poles. If they make it to the other side alive with in the time limit, they can still drive on public roads. If a blinker is left on the whole time, the car automatically explodes. We can even make it a TV show... it's gotta be more entertaining to watch than Pinks.

California its illegal for semi's and anything pulling trailers to be in the left lanes. They are required to stay in the right lane only except to pass.

same in the UK and Europe - they're also physically limited to 56mph and if you're towing you're not supposed to exceed 50... I've had F350's on the I17 come past me towing horses at 85mph...

Depends how many lanes there are. If its a 2 lane highway (i5) then they must travel in the right lane unless passing. If its a 4 lane then they can be in the right 2 lanes and pass in the 3rd lane.

Jersey, too. "Cruising" in the left lane (by anyone) is also reckless driving. Moron out-of-staters get ticketed CONSTANTLY on the Turnpike b/c of it.
