Can all states do this please! Pretty please!
"The left lane is meant for passing only, and if you're caught riding in this lane, you could get a $161 fine and up to three points on your license.
Driving in the left lane leads to traffic congestion and road rage according to Florida Highway Patrol's Lieutenant Greg Bueno. Lt. Bueno said this issue is a growing problem in every county in Florida and is entirely up to the discretion of the trooper whether to pull you over and ticket you."
Maybe once they have this left lane thing figured out they can teach people how to use a roundabout. (and start ticketing the hell out of people)
I don't know where everyone else is, but here in Wisconsin there are roundabouts everywhere and it seems nobody knows how to use them.
It is downright terrifying at times. I've known several people that have had accidents in them. Most people don't even know that you aren't supposed to ride alongside a truck when using a roundabout, I'm sure that always makes the truckers crazy!
Left lane hogs are annoying. The bigger issue is that they aren't paying attention. If you are in the left lane and constantly being passed on the right, you are driving to god damn slow! Move over.
A pet peeve of mine is that where I live, we have some left lane entrance ramps. These always cause back ups for miles because the people merging drive too slow. Hey idiot, you are merging into traffic doing 70mph, you can't merge doing 45! The thing that kills me is the entrance ramp is literally about 1/4 mile long and down hill yet these people can't seem to accelerate to speed to merge safely.

My taxes paid for that road, and i'm going to use it
Rush hour here in Detroit all 3 (or 4) freeway lanes are bumper to bumper as it is.
Appears to be a blatant money grab

in most cases if your driving 70 to 80 the officer should be stopping you for speeding not stopping motorist whom are driving the speed limit. While its seems quite obvious who is hogging the left lane I fear it could become subjective when profiling and quotas become a concern.
