It's not really the same then.
You are not allowed to stay in a lane when you can to go the right.
And you are not allowed to pass on the right.
Which is practical on one side, as there's less surprises.
But there's always some stupid dicks passing you on the right and you're really not prepared for that...

Hahaha, how did you need 10 tickets to realise you sort of will crash into a car you tailgate, should it come to a sudden stop.
Just hit the brakes hard on an emty highway at 70mph once and you'll now. There's no way you'll stop in time if you see how may meters you drive in that half a second responce time you have.
Here's a tip for motorists; When you are behind a car, pick an object next to the road like a lamp post or a spot on the road. When the object passes the car in front of you, make sure it takes at least two seconds for the object to get to your car. This is the minimal distance you want to have. It obviously depends on the speed you're driving on. You'll see that two seconds is quite a lot and this only works on a dry road. When it's rainy, you'll need at least three seconds. It's a bit weird at first because even I, being a very safe driver (safe is NOT the same as slow an annoying) only got to one to one and a half seconds. Now I always have at least two seconds between me and the car in front of me and I must say it's much more relaxing to drive that way.
Obviously there's ****ers going to fill up the hole. Who cares, just ease down on the throttle a little if they are too close and not pulling away.
That's something else. WHY do people take you over and then release the throttle? What's the point?
