driving on the 5 - a mild rant

I drove down and back to/from LA over the weekend and came to the realization that on interstate 5 I was passing more people on the right than on the left. The left lane was traditionally known as the passing lane, while the right lane was for slower traffic, but it seems like most people have decided changing lanes is too much effort so they just stay in the left lane the entire time. Traffic starts to bunch up and the next thing you know, the right lane is now the passing lane. 300 miles of this can be very frustrating.
I read once where basically the only traffic law that's enforced on the German autobahn is people driving slowly in the passing lane...if only they'd do that here. I know this isn't earth-shattering, but I'm sure some folks out there might take this as another sign of our declining values or the eroding of our rights as citizens...As for me, I'm inclined to blame the liberal media.
