http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passing_lane
Common practice and most law on United States Highways is that the left
lane is reserved for passing and faster moving traffic, and that traffic
using the left lane must yield to traffic wishing to overtake. The
United States Uniform Vehicle Code states:
Upon all roadways any vehicle proceeding at less than the normal speed
of traffic at the time and place and under the conditions then existing
shall be driven in the right-hand lane then available for traffic ...
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology's website on "Keep Right Laws"
points out that:
This law refers to the "normal" speed of traffic, not the "legal" speed
of traffic. The 60 MPH driver in a 55 MPH zone where everybody else is
going 65 MPH must move right..."[3]
It is also illegal in many states in the U.S. to use the "far left" or
passing lane on a major highway as a travelling lane (as opposed to
passing), or to fail to yield to faster moving traffic that is
attempting to overtake in that lane. For example, Colorado's "Left Lane
Law" states:
A person shall not drive a motor vehicle in the passing lane of a
highway if the speed-limit is sixty-five miles per hour or more unless
such person is passing other motor-vehicles that are in a non-passing
lane...[4]
Other examples, such as Massachusetts (General Statute 89-4B),[citation
needed] New Jersey, Maine, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and others, make it
illegal to fail to yield to traffic that seeks to overtake in the left
lane,[citation needed] or to create any other "obstruction" in the
passing lane that hinders the flow of traffic. As a result, heavy trucks
are often prohibited from using the passing lane.
A common problem arising from misuse of the "fast lane" is that it
forces faster moving traffic that wishes to overtake on the left to
change lanes, do so on the right, and then change lanes again. Further,
if the vehicle misusing the passing lane is going slower than the flow
of other traffic, it forces those using the middle "travel" lane (but
who are moving faster) to pass on the right as well, even though they
have no intention of doing so.
A driver hoping to pass a slow motorist in the "fast lane" is stuck in
an awkward situation. One strategy is to signal a lane change toward the
center median. Another is to flash headlights. A third, which sacrifices
safety, is to drive very close to the "fast lane" driver's bumper (this
is known as tailgating). In Germany it is common to signal a lane change
toward the center of the road, as if there were another lane to the left
of the "fast lane".
Most commonly, motorists will attempt to overtake the outer car on the
inner lane either to continue at a fast pace or to pass a car that is
simply going too slow in the passing lane. For high-capacity multilane
freeways (three or more lanes per direction), many motorists often pass
on the inner lane, largely in response to misuse of the "passing lane"
by slower traffic.

在科罗拉多,就要吃ticket乐
It is also illegal in many states in the U.S. to use the "far left" or
passing lane on a major highway as a travelling lane (as opposed to
passing), or to fail to yield to faster moving traffic that is
attempting to overtake in that lane. For example, Colorado's "Left Lane
Law" states:
A person shall not drive a motor vehicle in the passing lane of a
highway if the speed-limit is sixty-five miles per hour or more unless
such person is passing other motor-vehicles that are in a non-passing
lane...[4]

是不是理解有误啊。左道是超车道,不是快车道。左道的作用是超车的,右道有空就换
右道去,不论你开多快。
