Slow poke bill passes another committee

A bill to prohibit vehicles from driving in the left-most lane of traffic passed the Judiciary Committee this week. It would require drivers to move to the right if there is a vehicle immediately behind the first vehicle. Exceptions to this requirement would include traffic congestion, inclement weather, or a vehicle is preparing to turn left. Drivers would be fined no less than $100 for violating this new law, and the commissioner of the Department of Public Safety is required to conduct a public awareness campaign to increase knowledge of this new statute to keep to the right.
