In Florida, there's a new bill that would make it illegal to drive continuously in the left lane unless you’re passing other traffic.
Right now, you’re supposed to move over for faster traffic, but the new law would make the left lane off limits for anything other than passing.
No doubt, most of us have been frustrated by it when a driver is in the left lane, moving slow, and not getting over to the right, and Florida is one of more than two dozen states that already have laws urging left lane drivers to move over.
But if House Bill 421 were to become law, the Sunshine State would join just eight others where cruising in the left lane is illegal except when passing slower traffic.
Proponents point to statistics that show drivers having to slow down and change lanes is more dangerous than speeding.
