It's not a 'fast lane'. It's a passing lane.
In many states, it's illegal to be in the passing lane while not overtaking another vehicle or coming up on a left exit. "Failure to keep right" is a 2pt ticket where I'm from.
Depends on the state. We don't have minimum speeds posted here, just single speed limit signs.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner here! I live in Pensacola, there are plenty (read: too many LOL) of um, elderly drivers who are notorious for getting on I-10 (east/west) and putt-putting in the left lane. Minimum speed limit is 45 MPH in the parts that are 70-75 MPH speed limit. I've literally seen 30 MPH drivers... The part of I-10 that cuts through our area, you will get rumped/ran the hell over if you are not doing the speed limit or at least +5 over it. Same for most of the highways in the area. I won't hesitate to do 50 on the 45 highways -- if I don't I end up slowing everyone else down and disrupting the flow of traffic (my excuse if I ever get popped for speeding, thankfully zero speeding tickets *ever*).
I've lived in Florida my whole life and it's been a wonder to me why this has never been addressed. So many elderly just slow pokin' around everywhere.
