Watch The Speed Limits

 You will see that everyone respects them, so it will be widespread for you to drive on a motorway with many lanes  and all the cars at the same speed in the different paths.

The speed limits vary according to the roads and highways, so look carefully in each case which is the established limit. A limit of 60 miles per hour is customary.

You will be surprised to find trucks on the highways circulating in the lane on the left at a contained speed, and without moving in any case to the roads on the right. You should overtake them on the right.
