Why do people drive slow in the far left lane on the Interstate?
They have no respect for anyone else.
These people are self centered and never grew up.
I think people who do this simply aren't very familiar with the "rules of the road." I put that term in quotes mainly because there really is not a law that says faster moving traffic belongs, necessarily, in the far left lane. The far left lane IS a passing lane. But it is not a SPEEDING lane. Now, I'm coming at this, mind you, as a guy who rarely follows the speed limit. Under the law, if you are traveling in the far left lane at the speed limit, you are obeying the law. Typically it is the speeder who gets caught up in the far left lane by someone traveling at the speed limit, and thus the person in the far left lane is not driving slow, but driving at speed.
It is a matter of courtesy, however, that if you ARE traveling at speed in the far left lane, and recognize that another vehicle behind also in the far left lane is coming up on you in what is obviously a higher rate of speed, you should change lanes to let the vehicle pass.
By slow, do you mean at the speed limit or below? Since most people are going faster than the speed limit, a person going the speed limit is still in the right even if they are in the left lane.
They secretly think they are doing everyone a favor by slowing the speeders down. What they fail to recognize is by failing to allow faster moving traffic to pass, they create ripples and clusters of traffic that cause delays and increase chances of accidents happening.
That and they are self-centered a-holes!

Anyone feel real comfort from traveling down memory lane?My father passed in 99'. And today I watched home videos with him in them for the first time since he passed. I was riddled with excitement and anticipation...
