Default Traffic lane use

WHY Do people drive in the left lane below speed limit? WHY? The left lane is for passing or if you are about to turn left. We are NOT in England folks PLEASE drive like you are supposed to.

Unfortunately, you’re in Florida where this practice originated quite a few years ago.

I'm pretty sure that in England they use the left lane to turn left, too. Well, not everybody, obviously. Any Floridians over there...

It's actually a law now in Florida since about 2017, the right lane is for driving and the left lane is for passing. They could give out tickets on 466A all day long, I think some drivers have never considered using the right lane.

My guess is that they feel more comfortable with the shoulder or curb right there, rather than on the other side of the car.

Just a part of the "entitled" status that so many Villagers seem to have qualified for. Would be interesting to know if they are the same ones who don't intend to respect golf courses, pick up dog poop, share the MMP, park in store entrances, etc. -Does the status of "entitled" only apply to specific activities, or is the status very general, and apply to anything they choose to violate?
