  •  I was on the way OFF the roundabout, (3+ / 0-)

    signaling my intention to do so, so no, I was not in the wrong lane, I was merely moving over to exit it.   No one should pass anyone while actually on a roundabout, after all.  I learned that long ago when I first encountered them on a regular basis in the UK.  

    Regarding passing on both sides, I drive at a speed matching the main traffic flow.  Theoretically, yes, the right lane should be the slow lane and the inside lane the passing lane.  Not here.  A lane is a lane is a lane, and you use whichever one seems to put you ahead faster - and that also means the hard shoulder if needs be.  If that means that someone is passing the car ahead of you and you can't go there, you simply pass in the right hand one instead.  And those cops?  No lights.  No sirens.
