Slow Driving in the Fast Lane Is About to Get Expensive
If you're one of the many people in the world who find that there's little in life more frustrating that being stuck behind a slow moving car in the passing lane, Indiana's new 'Slowpoke' law that goes into effect July 1 is for you.
Drivers would get out of a ticket if there is bad weather, construction, or if they're exiting the freeway or coming up to a toll booth. Forty states have some sort of slowpoke law, though they usually can only be enforced when someone is going under the speed limit in the passing lane or if the driver sees other cars trying to pass in the lane.
Florida's law says a driver must be going 10 mph under the speed limit in the left most lane, for instance, while Michigan will fine any driver who continues to drive in the passing lane after overtaking slower cars. You can find your state's law on slow driving in the fast lane here.
