First, please get rid of the html.

As for keeping right, in WA, it _is_ the law... "Keep right except to pass"
and "Slower traffic keep right".  Just wish they would enforce it.

Unfortunately, the freeway designers around here can't tell their left
from their right and have entrance and exit ramps on the left...

On my commute I get to enter I-5 from the left and leave from the right
within a mile, crossing about 4 lanes... and they managed to make it
that way in  _both_ directions.
