Proposed law to make passing lane for passing only

 

Drivers couldn’t use the left lane on the interstate for anything more than passing other cars under a bill introduced in the Michigan House. State Representative Robert Kosowski is sponsoring the bill at the behest of one of his constituents. He says he only uses the left lane to pass other cars and never just drives down the left lane. Kosowski, who drives to Lansing from Metro Detroit, says he sees people all the time driving in the left lane when there are no other cars in the right lane. Those people, under his legislation, would get a ticket. The bill awaits a hearing in a House committee.
