Humorous Image of Slow Vehicle in High Speed Lane

Vox Media recently uploaded a compelling video about why it’s dangerous to drive slowly in the high-speed lane on roadways. Even going 5 MPH slower in the left lane can cause other motorists to make unnecessary lane changes, potentially causing accidents to happen. Driving slow in the left lane can also lead to major backups on roadways. Many states have “Keep Right Except To Pass” laws to help with this problem. Even if your state doesn’t have this restriction, it’s always a good idea to only use the left lane for passing. This is a good example why driving safely and staying alert at all times while on the highway helps protect other motorists and workers.
