Why Drivers Shouldn’t Drive Slowly in the Left Lane

Vox video contributor Christophe Haubursin explained why drivers shouldn’t drive slowly in the left lane in the United States, and some of the laws around the country that are meant to punish those who do.

Every state has some kind of law restricting the use of the left lane on multi-lane roads and highways. That doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to use the left lane at all — it just means that you should generally use it only to pass cars in the right lane.
