Illustration for article titled Georgia close to banning left-lane slowpokes

From USA Today: Georgia legislators have passed a bill that would require drivers on a divided highway to move out of the left lane if a faster car comes up behind them - even if they're doing the speed limit. All it needs is the guv's signature.


I have no idea how they would actually enforce this, and the article makes it sound like they don't either, but obviously we can all get behind the spirit of this law. I'm not sure about making it a misdemeanor w/ possible jail time, though - there are plenty of other instances of stupidity I'd like to see criminalized like that first.

I'm pretty sure New Jersey is the only other state with a law like this - anyone know?
