Driving would be so much easier if it were ever possible to impose this kind of law here in Peru. :lol:

Well why not incorporate some UK laws since some Peruvians already seem to follow both continental and UK passing etiquette by passing in the left lane and also passing in the right lane (and also the middle lane and shoulder for that matter), and insisting that anyone driving slower get out of there way even if traffic ahead is slower in general.

Seriously, though, I think the usual practice of slow cars and trucks staying in the right most lane is significantly impacted by the combi traffic constantly pulling on and off, so people get in the habit of avoiding the right lane as much as possible (until they see an opportunity to pass someone by using the right lane!).

don't think it would change anyone's driving habit. bad driving seems to be ingrained in the general population, even mine now :lol:
every place has it's own spirit. you just need to tune into it.
