Forget about speeding: cops ticketing slow pokes in the passing lane

posted by Mark Robertson -

If you've ever found yourself going INSANE because someone in front of you was driving too slowly in the left lane, this story's for you.  A state police trooper in Indiana was on Interstate 65, about 35 miles south of Indianapolis, on Saturday when he noticed a huge backup in the left lane.

And he realized it was because a woman was driving under the speed limit, which was 70 . . . and there were about 20 cars stuck behind her.  So . . . he pulled her over.

Under Indiana's state laws, the left lane is for passing . . . so if you're going under the speed limit, you're legally required to get into the right lane.  This woman didn't . . . so she got a ticket.

And the general consensus on social media seems to be . . . this cop is a HERO.  His tweet about what happened has gotten over 28,000 retweets . . . and a lot of comments from people asking him to come patrol in their states.
