Trooper teaches drivers what the left lane is actually for


A Colorado State Trooper’s much-needed video lesson on how to actually use the left lane properly has gone viral.

Colorado State Trooper Josh Lewis has made a name for himself by on social media by making funny videos that also offer seriously smart driving tips — and now he’s got a message for drivers who just can’t seem to figure out how the left lane works.

The big takeaways from Trooper Lewis’s video?

  1. The left lane is for actively passing
  2. The right lane is for driving
  3. It’s not that hard

Since the video was shared on Facebook, it has been viewed more than two million times and shared about 50,000 times — so hopefully the message is getting heard.

You can view the video below.

Left. Lane. Law.

Lewis has created several other videos like this one and if you haven’t seen the one about driving safely around semi trucks, we highly recommend it.
