Default Move over! SC lawmakers propose fines for slow left lane drivers

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Some of the most powerful lawmakers in South
Carolina are backing a proposal to allow officers to pull over people who
drive too slowly in the left lane of major roads.

The Senate Transportation Committee passed its version of the bill
Wednesday, sponsored by Senate President Harvey Peeler.

The bill would fine a driver $100 for not getting over to the right lane,
but add no points on a driver's license.

The House's version of the bill is sponsored by House Majority Leader Gary
Simrill.

The House bill has a fine of $200 and adds two points to a driver's
license. Peeler says every Southeastern state except North Carolina and
South Carolina has these types of laws.

Nobody should be in the left lane - period - except for first responders and driver sho are passing. Once they Pass, they should mover rightward into a lane to their right. This is abasic concept anywhere else in the world but the U.S., it seems
