Left lane law to reduce road rage

There is some good news coming down the pike for motorists in Virginia.

A state lawmaker is proposing a bill that could potentially put an end to what has been one of the most frustrating pet peeves of drivers for many decades.

The bill would impose a $250 fine on any motorist driving too slow in the left lane of the highway. Slow-moving drivers are supposed to stay to the right on the highway and leave the left lane for vehicles needing to pass. Oftentimes drivers forget and are too slow for the left lane, which infuriates other drivers and, more importantly, could cause an accident. 

Requiring slower drivers to keep to the right will also cut down on occurrences of road rage.

The bill already passed one vote and is now going to a final vote. If successful, other states could follow suit. (WWBT-TV Richmond, VA)
