This kind of rational thinking is not allowed in 'murrica, until approved by 
Fox news and Rush Limbaugh. And, to boot, there is a portion of I70 in 
Illinois where trucks are required to use the LEFT lane ONLY!!!

The solution to this is simple: a general prohibition against trucks in the 
left-most lane. I have seen this in many places, both in the US and Europe. 
If there are 3 lanes, they can still pass each other, but if there are only 
2, tough.

Cheers,
Nathan
