Angry driving slow in left lane!!!!

I live in denver and I get soooo frustrated when idiots ride in left lane. they actually get on the highway and automatically cut all the way across 4+ lanes get in left lane and go slow. Is this as bad everywhere, or is it just I drive too fast? where is there a left lane law, i heard Vermont does, is that true? Anybody put a Prius push bar on your Camaro? lol

How slow? If they are doing the speed limit and not below, they can use whatever lane they want unless it is an HOV.

Texas has one, in largely populated ones, trucks are not allowed in the left lane ( posted) and on interstates, the left lane is supposed to be used for passing only, and signs are posted for slower traffic to keep right...

This guy must be one of them... Goes for the left lane, sits next to someone else and has a line of traffic two miles long stuck behind him... Oblivious and inconsiderate,,, I drive fast, and still yield to faster traffic...

Don't come to Western North Carolina, a bunch of idiot drivers do this all the time, not to mention turning without a turn signal or checking their blind spot for me creeping up on them going 70mph.

Not so. In WA and OR it's against the law. Even posted that way. SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS

Some of the leftlane slowpokes I see in Ohio have their left turn signals blinking away as they loaf down the lane.

In Texas, you must yield the left lane when a faster car is behind you - regardless how fast you or the other car is going... the leftmost lane is for passing.

Still... a lot of drivers still do as you describe... many seem to find it easier to talk on the phone when they're putting along in the left lane.

A bill that passed the Florida Senate in april would allow drivers to be ticketed if they are driving too slowly in the left lane, and another car is trying to pass them. The ticket would be $143, and put points on the offender's driver's license.
And it would cost drivers even if they are driving the speed limit.

I hope this totally passes and is enforced. Just yesterday I had some grandpa doing 60(speed limit is 65) on the highway i come up behind him and he waves me to go around him.
