People following traffic laws is a pet peeve?

traffic laws are that you keep to right except to pass, regardless of what speed you are doing.

C'mon man, you must be joshing. If the speed limit is 65, and they are going 65, you don't think they should move over, and for that matter remain in the middle or right lane?

There's a law that says you must keep driving in the leftmost lane?

A brief summary of US traffic laws.

If there are two lanes available, traffic moves in the right-hand lane and passes on the left.

If there are three lanes available, traffic moves in the center lane at-speed, passes on the left, and the right-hand lane is for moving slowly.

If there are four or more lanes available then clench your sphincter and hope you make it out alive.

It's like playing Tetris if there are 5 or more lanes.

I-15 Project Neon, Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas ceremony kicks off Project Neon — $1.5B Spaghetti Bowl redesign

To state transportation leaders, it’s a source of pride — the largest public works highway project in Nevada history.

To the public, it’s a reminder that a long-term traffic migraine is about to begin.

Dignitaries from across the state celebrated the kickoff Thursday morning of Project Neon, the $1.5 billion Spaghetti Bowl redesign project expected to reduce accidents and add traffic lanes to the state’s busiest highway interchange at Interstate 15 and U.S. Highway 95.

The project is expected to be completed by summer 2019.
Full report: http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/tr...-bowl-redesign

I-95 towards Miami. Lane discipline a bit better than on I-75 on the west side of Florida, maybe because traffic was lighter when I drove here:

The reputation is true, Florida has some of the worst drivers in the US. Lane discipline in non-existent.
