Can Google Maps help me change lanes?

Stuck in Traffic lanes Every day when i drive down i-95 south to get to work more often than not, i find myself stuck in the slowest moving lane. I have tried using Google Maps and Waze intermittently to find a faster way.. By now you know at least 2 things

Google maps keeps surprising me with new features ever so often. Most recently, it lets me pick the time of travel and gives an idea of the duration of the travel based on this input..thats a lot of data gathering and processing…. taking this even further, i was wondering if Google can tell which lane i should be in to move faster?

To provide this level of detail, the real time data processing logic needs to evolve significantly. We all know that that left most lane is the supposed to be the place for every one moving faster than others.. but very often we have these moral police who are the slowest of the lot and love driving in the leftmost lane… more power to them.. but why should i suffer and how can i circumvent the situation .. and the lane changing logic may be the answer..

Again, this is a very raw thought and i am sure there are other considerations needed.. for example, if an app were to tell me to change lanes, everyone using the app with a desire to go faster will change lanes within a 1-2 minute window.. that will just end up making the fast lane slow.. and the app will now suggest that change the lanes back to where you started… so worst case scenario would be everyone just changing lanes.. and creating some sort of sine way along the road..

Another consideration is to create user segments based on the intent, not everyone would want to go fast, some of us do want to drive more cautiously than others and for this segment safety would be top priority, so based on such intent you could pick a setting in the app such as “time no bar” and “shortest time” pretty similar to the settings you have when you select your route.

I am sure i have missed some key considerations, but the questions is can this be done?
