X3. As long as there are 3 lanes, I'll drive in the middle for the exact reasons Oakman describes. As soon as the highway goes back to two lanes, you'll find me in the right hand lane while everyone else flies by me.

I use the slow lane unless it is a supper (Bumpy) one, then I move over to a (Smoother?) one and go the (Speed Limit) until I can find a section of slow lane to move over too. The Race Cars can pass on the right if they want to (Speed)! Youroo!!

I agree with Oakman. In city I generally stay in the middle lane to avoid the accelerating and decelerating at the on ramps. Outside the city I stay in the right lane.

I don't do a whole lot of Interstate traveling with my camper (but do a lot though with tire trailers). This info below is just a little forwarning for those traveling thru Louisiana.

You do need to keep in the right lane when on two lane Interstates here. The State Police have publicized they will ticket drivers that are just driving in the passing lane when they should be in the right hand lane.

http://legis.la.gov/lss/lss.asp?doc=88525

They have also started enforcing the law that says you have to move over to another lane when you come upon an emergency vehicle pulled over on the shoulder, that has lights flashing. If you cannot move over safely you are supposed to reduce your speed.

Middle lane to avoid drivers that zoom in front of you to get on then slow to a crawl. If drivers want to pass me, they have their choice, left or right. I don't care 'cause I have mirrors and am always scanning anyways.

Generally stay in the right lane unless there's road construction with jersey walls on the right. Hate those things, I move over one lane to the left. I will ride the center lane if in the area of a couple exits. Just dislike losing momentum when someone pulls out instead of speeding up in the merge lane and then doesn't move and I'm approaching a hill. I still want that Diesel Locomotive 5 chime horn and the toilet paper launcher when I encounter these drivers.

Back when I was working, I traveled at 60 and in the slow lane most of the time because I was relaxing and letting the world pass me. Now that I am retired I still travel at 60 and in the slow lane because I am not in a hurry!

But it is kinda fun to mash the gas and take off from the group when no one seems to have a clue!
