Re: Same concept...

Because some traffic actually leaves the highway from the inside lane, allowing it to move a bit. All those people then joining however don't want to stay behind/between the trucks on the inside lane or make room for the cars taking the next exit and all the extra weaving causes traffic on the outside lanes to slow to an even lower pace. The inside lane is also often occupied by trucks. Since truckers have a much better overview generally and have enough patience not to go *THROTTLE**BRAKES*THROTTLE**BRAKES*etc, like all those other plonkers out there and let their vehicle coast with some space to the vehicle in front, the flow on the inside lanes is usually better.
