Florida Passes Left Lane Driving Bill

A lot of people hate left lane campers, people who just cruise in the left lane on highways so it’s hard to pass them. A new bill which passed the Florida legislature and now heads to Governor Ron DeSantis’ desk would allow police to charge anyone hanging out in the left lane with a moving violation, under certain circumstances.

Watch a cop get caught on a suspect’s bumper and go for a wild ride.

Once state law, drivers can be cited if they’re traveling on a stretch of road with a speed limit of 65 mph or greater with two or more lanes moving in the same direction. In other words, this doesn’t apply to regular surface streets in Florida cities.

The law also specifies that drivers can only legally occupy the leftmost lane of travel if they’re overtaking or passing another vehicle, preparing to exit the road, or have been directed to get in the left lane by an official traffic control device.
