What is the Road Rage Reduction Act?
Under the bill, drivers can move into the left lane to pass other vehicles, but a driver who continues to drive in the left lane at a speed ten mph slower than the speed limit is subject to a $60 fine.
The Road Rage Reduction Act has already been passed by the legislature in the state and awaits the signature of the governor. The sponsors of the bill indicate that the goal of the proposed legislation is to discourage slow drivers that move into the left lane and remain there despite the fact that they are obstructing the flow of traffic. The hope is that this legislation will keep tempers in check and prevent acts of road rage that can cause serious injury and sometimes even fatal car accidents.
