Enjoy the comfort the left hand lane provides? After all, it can feel quite “luxurious”.
Vox put out a new video showing why driving in the left hand lane is not only unadvisable, but also illegal. Many states have laws that prohibit driving in the left hand lane if you aren’t turning or passing another vehicle. Although it may be loosely enforced, it is the law after all.
Outside of the legal repurcussions, it also slows down the overall flow of traffic and creates a potentially hazardous situation with vehicles weaving in and out of lanes to pass.
