Yes, I agree, even in California, it's always a good idea to pass on the left. However....often in California all the lanes of traffic will be occupied, and it's safer to just stay in your own lane, which may at times be going faster or slower than the lane to your left. So without really intending to, you end up passing on the right. Another thing that happens more and more frequently, and I suspect not just in California, is that the inside lane is reserved for carpools. Because of that, the inside lane is often going slower than the next lane to the right, since there is no presumption that a person driving in the carpool lane will be going faster than all the other lanes. So traffic in the lane next to the carpool lane will sometimes be passing the traffic in the carpool lane to the right. Or, as also happens, you are in the carpool lane and want to get around someone in front of you who is going slower than you want to go. In that case, you are forced to pass on the right, since there are no more lanes to the left.
