1 lane is the lane "fast lane" all the way to left, it counts up after that ---- When facing the direction of traffic flow, traffic lanes are numbered from left to right. The lane closest to the center median is the number 1 lane.

The "slow" lane (closest to freeway entrance/exits) is numbered according to the total number of lanes. (anywhere from 2 to 6)

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.

When traveling at a safe speed on a freeway which lane can be selected to allow others to switch lanes?

Drivers intending to stay on the highway/freeway should stay in the right lane or the lane designated as a through-lane. The only times you should move left is to allow vehicles to merge from a right side on ramp (and move back to the right lane as soon as you can), or to pass slower traffic already in the right lane (then move back to the right lane when it is safe to do so). If a freeway provides a "slower" lane and you drive slower than the maximum speed allowed, you should use the slower lane. But never hog the passing lane just to keep driving in it; move over and let faster traffic pass you.
