It is an archaic law that was written before there were 150 million cars on the road every day. There simply aren't enough lanes available for everyone to "keep right". If everyone kept right, traffic wouldn't move.
The cop made a completely arbitrary decision. This would be one ticket I'd contest in court especially if the driving conditions could be interpretted as hazardous as the driver claimed.
I doubt a judge would uphold this ticket. he might even chastize the issuing police department.
Truthfully though, IMHO, these are the kinds of things that alot of police departments along interstates use as excuses to pull you over so that they can escalate the invent into an invasion of your car.
In the southeast, it's almost like the police have money sniffing dogs. I bet this cop just stinks at profiling the cash cows.
