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.— Sgt. Stephen Wheeles (@ISPVersailles) June 16, 2018
Again...if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass. pic.twitter.com/tePjJ1Xigy
If you've ever found yourself going INSANE because someone in front of you was driving too slowly in the left lane, this story's for you. A state police trooper in Indiana was on Interstate 65, about 35 miles south of Indianapolis, on Saturday when he noticed a huge backup in the left lane.
And he realized it was because a woman was driving under the speed limit, which was 70 . . . and there were about 20 cars stuck behind her. So . . . he pulled her over.
Under Indiana's state laws, the left lane is for passing . . . so if you're going under the speed limit, you're legally required to get into the right lane. This woman didn't . . . so she got a ticket.
And the general consensus on social media seems to be . . . this cop is a HERO. His tweet about what happened has gotten over 28,000 retweets . . . and a lot of comments from people asking him to come patrol in their states.
