New Bill Seeks To Punish Left-Lane Hogs In Florida
“A driver may not continuously operate a motor vehicle in the furthermost left-hand lane, except when overtaking and passing another vehicle, when preparing to exit the road, street, or highway, or when otherwise directed by an official traffic control device,” reads a section of the bill.
If passed, motorists could face penalties for violating the law. These non-criminal traffic infractions will be difficult to enforce, as it requires police presence, and catching someone in the act is more challenging than it sounds. The proposed rule would only apply to highways, roads, and streets with a speed limit of 65 mph and above and two or more lanes.
There are exceptions, of course, with emergency vehicles and highway maintenance crews (during construction periods) immune from punishment. Ticket Clinic CEO Mark Gold told the publication he hopes to see the law being enforced.
