The internet loves this Indiana trooper for what he did to a left lane lingerer


An Indiana State Trooper’s tweet went viral over the weekend as the internet showered him with gratitude for the action he took on I-65.

ISP Sergeant Stephen Wheeles wrote:

“I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.

Again…if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.”

Since Saturday, Sgt. Wheeles tweet has been liked by more than 61,000 people and shared by 20,000 users.

In addition to all of the likes, Wheeles taking action against the left lane lingerer has earned him some pretty lavish online praise.

Former NFL star Troy Aikman even chimed in to praise Wheeles.

Wheeles also reminded Twitter that he was acting in the name of safety when he put a stop to the left lane driver:

He also pointed out that he’s not the only Indiana State Trooper who is enforcing the left lane law.
