Is the Left Lane for Passing or Driving Fast?

Here's a classic question we'll never agree on: When you're on the highway, what should the LEFT LANE be used for? Is it for people who want to drive fast, or is it just for passing people?

A new poll asked 27,000 Americans, and the most popular answer was BOTH. 40% say it's for passing OR driving fast . . . 36% say it should only be used for passing . . . and 13% say it's mainly for people who want to drive faster than the flow of traffic.

2% chose none of the above. So I guess those are the people who like to plant themselves in the fast lane and drive UNDER the speed limit. (The other 9% didn't have an opinion.) 

(Here's a chart on how each state handles left lane driving.)
