Left-Lane-Hog Abatement Bill To Governor


JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi drivers who cruise in the left lane could face fines of up to $50 if Governor Phil Bryant signs House Bill 80 into law. The measure says that on any road with at least four lanes, a vehicle should not impede left lane traffic. The left lane should only be used for passing, left-hand turns or left exits unless the right lane is closed, is in disrepair or is otherwise impassable. If Bryant signs the bill, it would become law July 1st. Critics say it would give law enforcement officers a pretext to pull over drivers for racial profiling.

    the reason for this is the inside lane is usually alot smoother than the outside lanes and the state officials will have a smooth lane to fly on
