Driving on the Freeway – Name that Lane- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
If you get a ticket and need to describe the incident, it’s helpful to know how traffic lanes are numbered. Officers will also often mark the lane they saw you driving in on your ticket using just a number.
Traffic lanes are described as follows:
- Left or “fast” lane is referred to as the “#1 Lane.”
- to the immediate right of the “#1 Lane” is the “#2 Lane,” and so on.
- If you are on a freeway with a carpool lane, the left lane is still referred to as the #1 Lane, while the carpool lane is simply that
As a general rule, use the left lane if you need to pass, the right lane if you need to slow down, and the middle lane if you are looking for the smoothest travel (odds are you won’t have to adjust your speed as much). - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
