  1. And those permissible times are?

    Every time I go home from work I travel north on Highway-30, and at the first sign of bunching traffic people take to the left shoulder. Not one of them would be doing only 45kph, more likely more than twice that, and some I would estimate at up to three times that! They mostly treat it as an extra “normal” lane.
