Default Interstate Travel

Does anyone know why this city does not have an ordinance restricting tractor trailers and large trucks to the center or right lane on the interstates within the city limits ? I travel through most large metropolitan areas and most cities have enough sense to restrict the trucks to center or right lane within the city limits. It is so aggravating to be in the left lane and have a line of tractor trailers loaded down shifting then trying to build up speed to get back to the posted speed limit. Obviously it won’t fix all the congestion but it sure would not hurt the flow of traffic.

I understand your frustration. The truck lane restriction is not well enforced outside the city either particularily on I-65 between E-town and I-265. I've been on 65 nearly day for the last 3 weeks and I've always seen trucks in the left lane.
