Keep Right (5/10)

List item

One of the best things you can do to avoid being in an accident is to follow the rule that the left lane(s) are designated for passing only.

Riding in the left lane prevents other motorists from passing you in the correct (left) lane, which leads to increased tailgating (where frustrated drivers tailgate you to send a signal that you are in the wrong lane) and dangerous right-lane passing (where frustrated drivers may risk an accident by attempting to pass you at high speeds in the right lane (often with very little room for error on their part).

Even if you drive your own vehicle as safely as possible in the left lane, you are at a much higher risk of being in an accident because you are frustrating the drivers around you by failing to follow the rules of the road.
