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.
