In some states and countries the passing lane on a highway is reserved strictly for passing and you can get a ticket for driving in it when you are not passing. In other jurisdictions, you are permitted to drive in the passing lane. This is why you need to be aware of local friving laws when you are driving away from your home.

Why do some people who drive a car stay in the left lane?

The left lane is supposed to be the fast lane. If you want to drive faster, then use the left lane. Traditionally it is ment to be the passing lane. If you want to pass someone driving slowly in the right lane, then pass them using the left lane, and get back over to the right lane until you need to pass someone else. However, you should not sit in the left lane driving slowly. It is ment to be a passing lane and if you sit out in the left lane, it will make others unhappy! I hope this helped!

Which lane is used for passing?

This is highly dependent on what kind of roadway you are on, and where you are driving. On two-lane highways in the US, the oncoming traffic lane is used for passing. Most states allow this type of passing outside of urban areas where it is not specifically prohibited. On three-lane highways in the US (not common anymore), the center lane is used for passing but is subject to restrictions (yield to uphill traffic, etc.). On four lane highways which are not freeways, most states allow passing only in the left lane in your direction. On freeways with a center divider and multiple lanes in your direction, most states recommend passing in the left lane but permit it in any lane. Some states do not allow passing on the right. A center lane which is a two-way left turn lane may never be used for passing in nearly all states. A shoulder lane may be used to pass a stopped vehicle when it is safe to do so in most states. There are lots of exceptions to the Uniform Vehicle Code.

When driving on a 3 lane freeway you should know that?

If there are 3 lanes on your side of the freeway, the right-hand lane is there for vehicles to merge onto the freeway and it is the place for slower moving vehicles to drive; such as big rigs or cars towing anything. The lane in the middle is the passing lane for slow moving traffic, and it is the lane for primary travel of other than slow moving vehicles. The lane to the far left is for passing only, except when designated for specific use, like a carpool lane.


Is the left lane only a passing lane?

Yes. You should only pass on the left. And you should drive in the right lane if you are not passing.


What are some common traffic violations?

Some of the most common traffic violations include speeding, driving under the influence, violating railroad rules, passing in a no passing zone, and unsafe lane changes.


Can they ticket you for not passing a semi?

Most locations have a law against bad driving. It's not exactly called that... it may be legally referred to as "careless and imprudent", for example... but it basically means that a police officer can give you a ticket for almost literally anything the officer considers to be bad driving. You may be able to contest the ticket, in which case you're taking your chances that a judge and/or a jury will agree with you and not with the police officer, but in short: yes, a police officer can give you a ticket for not passing a semi.
