News website Vox has posted an article making the specific case that drivers should not drive slowly in the left lane of highways. Other than being illegal, driving slowly in the left lane increases the risk of an accident.
Many people are unaware that driving slowly in the left lane is illegal in every state. In California and Arizona, for example, it is illegal to drive in the left lane if you are driving slower than traffic. Even if someone is driving the speed limit in the left lane, if the flow of traffic is moving faster than the speed limit, the driver must exit the left lane.
The article goes much more in depth about how driving in the left lane slowly can cause traffic problems and puts all drivers at a higher risk of an accident.
