It is illegal to pass on the right in CT but apparently only a suggestion to 'keep left except to pass'.

I just pass in whatever lane is available and leave it to chance whether or not I get written up. Never have but it is a possibility. Still, by my calculations, I would be four years behind where I am now if I had NOT passed on the right all those times so even with a ticket, I think I am ahead.

+1 on that...

I rode with a guy one time that wanted to stay in the left lane all the time and he wasn't going fast.  Drove me crazy.

Sounds like the drivers in Wisconsin.

It is against the law in CO to sit in the left lane and not be passing... but hardly enforced.  >:(

Actually, in Virginia this has been on the books for years but no one has the guts to enforce it, it would seem they would rather ticket the "aggressor":

§ 46.2-804. Special regulations applicable on highways laned for traffic.

Whenever any roadway has been divided into clearly marked lanes for traffic, drivers of vehicles shall obey the following:

1. Any vehicle proceeding at less than the normal speed of traffic at the time and place and under the conditions existing, shall be driven in the lane nearest the right edge or right curb of the highway when such lane is available for travel except when overtaking and passing another vehicle or in preparation for a left turn or where right lanes are reserved for slow-moving traffic as permitted in this section

I thought that there was something going on to add more teeth to that.  I know I remember them talking about it.

This is probably what I heard/saw..

I like that line. Unless it's clarified elsewhere, that means that I have a legal right to get pissed at someone who is not speeding fast enough to get the hell out of my way.

But then the person changed lanes without signalling so you knew you were in Illinois.

Because in Illinois, the directionals are removed from your car when you license it (as an energy-saving measure I guess).

Spent some time in and around Tel Aviv, the only place I've ever been where people consistently changed lanes and made turns in the opposite direction of the signal being used.
