IIRC police in the state of NY have a blanket exception to all traffic laws.  It's one of the reasons you can see police cars parked every which way at an accident scene, they're simply allowed to do it.

Going back and forth from IN to Cols OH I stay in the right lane and drive 3-10 over at all times. Never anyone out there.

I have a million mile no accident truck driver friend that grew up in OH that has been in the People republic of CA as he calls it for years. I send him dashcam video monthly showing him dashcam vids of trucks sitting in the middle lane, Ohio State fans in the right lanes camped out and me happily moving up an empty lane with no one in the forseeable distance. Drives him bat s*** crazy as he sends me back notes that "the truckers should have their license pulled" Sadly the middle lane has become the de facto driving lane and the biggest risk you run on I 70 is the bear in the air that sees you and radios to the Trooper sitting at the Plain City exit waiting to pull you over NOT for passing on the right but for being 3-10 over. He does not care about your dashcam showing traffic in the left lane not moving or your go pro vids pulling along side people who are texting and swerving while holding up traffic.
