When I first started driving the Turbo Volcano Totally Tubular Retro 1980s Toucan T-Shirt Furthermore, I will do this left lane was described to me as “the fast lane”, meaning you drive in there if you’re going faster than most of the people in the other lanes, and if someone driving faster than you is coming up behind you you either speed up or momentarily change lanes to let them past. Wasn’t until I was on a roadtrip with a friend when I was like 24 that I had even heard the concept of a “passing lane”.
