If it's so simple, how come you didn't get it correctly?

It's LEFT lane for passing. Not RIGHT.

Here's the CT Law:

2005 Connecticut Code - Sec. 14-230. Driving in right-hand lane.
Sec. 14-230. Driving in right-hand lane. (a) Upon all highways, each vehicle, other than a vehicle described in subsection (c) of this section, shall be driven upon the right, except (1) when overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction, (2) when overtaking and passing pedestrians, parked vehicles, animals or obstructions on the right side of the highway, (3) when the right side of a highway is closed to traffic while under construction or repair, (4) on a highway divided into three or more marked lanes for traffic, or (5) on a highway designated and signposted for one-way traffic.

Look at section (4)"on a highway divided into three or more marked lanes for traffic" so all you complainers the left lane law does not have any effect on the CT Interstates depending on interpretation the "highway" all combined is 2 lanes each side so it would be over 3 lanes so this law does not have any bearing on CT, so stop complaining.

You do not know the meaning of except, or or, do you?

Ah I do know the mean of "except" and "or" meaning that the laws doesn't apply for the following "exceptions" which are listed in numerical order and do not have to all be there for the exception only one element has to be there for the exception to be valid. So "exception" number 4 about the 3 or more lanes highway would boil down to any interstate in CT with 3 or more lanes.

The lanes would be up to the interpretation of the officer enforcing the law if it meant 3 lanes on each side or 3 lanes total on the "highway"

IMHO, depends. However, most states that do have a law do not enforce it . I vote yes, but it probably won't get enforced.

I wish but it wouldn't matter. They can't even enforce the no cell phone law.

They can't even enforce speeding ...

Drove by a cop at 80-90MPH in a 55MPH zone, thought I was going to get pulled over. Damn radar didn't go off .

Actually, they can - and do. The problem is every third car is playing around with their cell phone while driving (no lie). They can't get to them all.

Not in favor of this. This idea offers room for discretion and would be subjective. In many cases, I choose to travel in the lane that has less pot holes. If that happens to be the left lane then so be it. If someone comes up behind me then I happily go into the right and let them pass, otherwise I choose the path of least resistance.
