I Can't Drive 55

I know I feel like this on the highway. But some kids from Georgia State University tested it out and submited it to the Campus MovieFest. Here are the Austrian Economists commenting on it. And here is the video.

I CAN'T DRIVE 55 by Sammy Hagar

One foot on the brake and one on the gas, hey!
Well, there's too much traffic, I can't pass, no!
So I tried my best illegal move
Well, baby, black and white come and touched my groove again!
Gonna write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55! Oh No!
Uh!

So I signed my name on number 24, hey!
Yeah the judge said, "Boy, just one more
We're gonna throw your ass in the city joint"
Looked me in the eye, said, "You get my point?"
I said Yea!, Oh yea!
Write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!

Oh, yea!

I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
Uh!

(Solo)

When I drive that slow, you know it's hard to steer.
And I can't get get my care out of second gear.
What used to take two hours now takes all day. Huh!
It took me 16 hours to get to L.A.
Gonna write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!

No, no no,
I can't drive...
(I can't drive 55!)
I can't drive...
(I can't drive 55!)
I can't drive 55!

Comments:
I've noticed the same phenomenon on I-40 on the way to Chapel Hill. It's a great example of a spontaneous order. Unless I'm mistaken, it's not a law that slow-movers stay right while people pass on the left, but it happens that way, and individuals seem to understand that if you're not going 75, you need to get out of the way.
 
Same thing happens on escalators in the subway in NYC. Stand to the right and walk to the left. I think I've only seen an actual sign posted once.
 
There is also no explicit law determining "order" on four-way stops. It is the spontaneous order and perhaps a bit of etiquette.
