A bill that would allow officers to ticket slow drivers that linger in the left lane of traffic on interstates is just a pen-stroke away from becoming law.
Georgia's House Bill 459 states a driver would have to move out of the passing lane when they realize a faster car is coming up from behind.
It would be a misdemeanor penality.
The bill passed the House vote on February 26. The Senate passed the bill with a vote of 42-5 on Tuesday.
Once Nathan Deal, the governor of Georgia, signs the bill, it will become a state law.
Should Tennessee look into doing the same thing? Head to WKRN-TV's Facebook page to weigh-in on the issue.
