I think that if you actually check you'll find that it is illegal in very few 
states, and that it is enforced in even fewer. I agree completely that it is 
rude and inconsiderate. It ought to be officially encouraged in SOME way, but 
about the only help I ever see is the occasional sign that reads, "Slower 
traffic keep right." Somehow those signs never seem to apply to the right 

I believe the Wis legislature debated this a couple of years ago, and the 
debate was one of the most heated in memory, somewhat evenly divided between 
those who agreed with you and me, and those who felt that it was their God-
given right to drive wherever they pleased. In the end the bill did not pass. 
I'm afraid our legislature has not been very bright ever since they made it a 
full time job.
