Left lane is for passing only!

Why is this concept so difficult to understand and more difficult to follow? Why do people go at 40 kmph in a 60 zone?! What the hell is wrong with people?!
You stay in the left lane if you need to make a left turn in the next few minutes or you need to pass a car. It's simple!

If I catch anyone of you guys driving in left lane for any other reason, I will chase you down....and and and nothing. I will just chase you down until you change your lane!

There. I feel better now.

Re: Left lane is for passing only!

TM:

What you are talking about and where you at ?
In India? In USA?
Left lanes ( left most, when driving on LHS traffic roads ? ) and kmph – the words you are talking about !

Again, you use the US words like passing and not overtaking,. !

US got all diff. speeds signs, some are in rare cases 60 MPH and such, with 'strictly to be maintained'
and if you go below that, police can give you ticket. Majorly it’s 55 MPH all over the nation, but I have driven even where they say 60 MPH and must maintain.

In US the left lanes are for fast go-ers, ( on divided highways and multi lanes traffic ) and when you see any fire-ambulance behind, you must get to the right lane no matter what, unless the traffic is crowded.

You stay in the left lane if you need to make a left turn in the next few minutes or you need to pass a car. It's simple!

it depends. On Interstates what you say is correct, and also few exits even come in left ( instead of right ) . In city traffic and crowded area, where in fact the speeds are also around 45-55 mph allowed, it does not much matter on two lanes roads whether you remain in the left most or right most, if driving around 45 mph and road is kinda crowded during office times !


If I catch anyone of you guys driving in left lane for any other reason, I will chase you down....and and and nothing. I will just chase you down until you change your lane!

There. I feel better now.

few trouble makers are every-where, who are called vighna-santoshi !

I live neither in India nor in U.S.! Jeez, as if those are the only two countries that matter :d

Where I am from, we use kmph. Actually, I am not talking about interstates or highways (free-way in your country). I am talking in general. Usually at 6 in the morning, there isn't much traffic. But I see a lot of people casually driving in the left lane doing less than the speed limit. I wonder what compels them to do so. They could very well move over but they don't. Why do they do that?

During rush hour I understand it doesn't matter which lane you are on but even when it matters, they stay on left lane. It drives me crazy!
Even my 3 year old knows that left lane is for passing only!

Thats when you drive right up their tailpipe and honk the horn and flash your lights. They will move over, trust me. Then as you are passing them, flip them the bird. Will make your day much better!
