OT: Starting July 1, VA drivers could get ticketed for driving slow in the left lane
"Starting July 1, Virginia drivers could get ticketed for driving slow in the left lane

RICHMOND, Va. – The Commonwealth of Virginia is cracking down on drivers who don’t obey the rules of the road on highways and interstates.

Starting July 1, police will start enforcing rules that require drivers to travel in the right lanes of highways except when passing other traffic.

That means drivers who use the left lane for any means other than passing another vehicle or preparing for a left turn, you could face a fine.

The text of HB 2201 clarifies that where there are multiple lanes available, the right lanes are for traffic that is moving at less the normal speed of traffic at the time.

Those who are caught in violation of the law are subject to a fine of a minimum of $100 but no more than $250"

What's the minimum speed limit that one must go? I can't imagine they're condoning people speed, otherwise why not pass laws abolishing speed limits throughout the state.

So this is just attaching a fine to a pre-existing left lane law and allowing police to use it as a primary offense to pull a person over for.
You've always had to move out of the left-most lane unless you're in the process of passing.

Given the amount of ******** in VA that hang out in the left lane I didn't know that was on the books in VA (and you could say the same about a lot of states)..

I was told it isn't on the books in PA..

The Albemarle County revenue stream should be overflowing from fines. Like fish in a barrel. Driving along Rt. 29 in the Charlottesville area suggests to you that the right lane is the so-called "fast lane". Sheesh.

A lot of the left lane road hogs are texting.
