Keep right except to pass is not always the law in every state. Some, with 3 lanes, the middle is the travel lane (basically you are doing the posted speed limit or slightly above), the right lane is the slow lane (mostly tractor trailers going up a hill).Second, the knucklehead in the right hand lane sitting on cruise control. No, not for being a part of the rolling roadblock, but for not moving right as soon as the highway opened up to 3 lanes. Keep right except to pass!
And finally, the victim, who was also an a**h*** driver. He wasn't at fault for the accident, but they could have cited him for:
1) Following too closely (the cop)
2) Following too closely (the SUV)
3) Passing on the right
4) Failing to keep right except to pass (exactly what had him calling the cop an a**h***).
And, possibly (video doesn't make it clear), unsafe lane changes.
