Fastlane Status

The freeway from Spanish Fork to Sandy is all three lanes. The whole concept of slow and fast lanes is a mystery to the people of Utah. Everyone immediately gets into the middle lane when they get on no matter how slow or fast they are. And then, they get over into the far left lane if they want fastlane status, not to go faster. Honestly, the people in the so-called fastlane are usually going SLOWER than everyone else.

I've noticed that when I'm going a bit faster than the flow of traffic and I need to pass people I spend most of my time in the far right (or slow) lane! It's so weird.

I've visited California and Nevada recently. For some reason the highways there flow slower on the right and faster on the left. Why is it the complete opposite in Utah?
