^ This and This is nuts, hasn't everyone been in heavy traffic on a freeway before? Op wanted to overtake the cars next to him but could not. This is the 405 we are talking about here too so no one thinks the left lane in the passing lane anyways, everyone just drives for themselves like they are the only person that matters. Next thing you know someone will say they should still be passing cars to the right event though there is an accident in front of them becase your in the passing lane right? But really, EVERY lane except the right lane is a passing lane, they each overtake each other based on the fact that your supposed to pass on the left because people on the far right are entering and exiting the freeway. By this rule the far left lane is "the passing lane" because it should be used for passing cars that are to the right, just like every other lane, only you can't go anymore left. So for arguments sake (sorry Electra) technically if the op switched to the lane to his right to pass the car in front of him, he is not playing by the rules as your not supposed to pass cars using the right lane lol. BTW his camera shows his speed, so you can clearly see that there is allot of traffic and the fast lane / passing lane is only moving at 1/2 the speed people normally do in it (80ish, but this is the 405 during daylight hours). In fact you can see the car slowing down in front of him.
