Back in the Seventies during the gas crisis, when the 55 MPH speed limit was the national obsession and became law, some state highway patrols decided it would be a good idea for them to drive three patrol cars abreast of each other on interstate highways at 55 to keep traffic from passing them. They stopped that practice because it was found to be unsafe.

Hey, if anyone wants to drive more slowly than other traffic, that's their privilege - but not in the left lane. Live and let live.
