Camping in the fast lane could cost drivers hundreds of dollars in a new bill proposed in the West Virginia Legislature.
Senate Bill 441 would allow law enforcement to fine drivers up to $100 for driving at “such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic.”
Drivers with repeat offenses could see fines of up to $200. The new bill would only allow slow driving in the fast lane “when reduced speed is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law,” reported WWMT 3.
The proposed bill would apply to any highway with four lanes in the state of West Virginia and would be upheld by all law enforcement.
The bill currently sits in the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and needs approval from the full Senate and House of Delegates in order to go into law.
