What's wrong with undertaking? (not an enterprise, or the dead-body kind)

Hot on the heels of this question,
I've gotta ask you MetaFolks from outside the USA -- why do you have such a big problem with 'undertaking' ie passing in the slow lane?

For the sake of clarity, we're in a drive-on-the-right country, where you're only supposed to pass on the left. But why? Traffic slows down in the fast (left) lane; over here in the right lane, I'm supposed to slow down too? Why? Are you left lane drivers really going to blunder into my lane without looking, without signaling? And if you are driving safely, why is my passing you on the other side such an outrage? (Please, more to your answer than just "It's the law.")
