  1. But then, why are truck driving in the near right lane as in the picture? This is the dangerous situation where slow traffic are passed on the left hand side. I regularly see trucks dive-bombing for the middle lanes, specially at Rigel Ave on N1S and on the N3S near Van Buuren. They cannot maintain the minimum speed of 60km/h do to overloading and old age, yet they occupy the three right hand lanes!

    As soon as you commingle slow and fast traffic in the same lanes, accidents are due to happen.
