Thumbs up LEFT LANE LAW begins November, 2017

Starting November 1st, you will not be able to travel in the left lane, permanently. You cannot get in that left lane, you cannot hang out in that left lane, even if you're going faster than other drivers.

I usually travel in the left lane because I do drive above the speed limit. If any cars come up behind me, I do move over and I would never drive slow to keep someone from passing me. That's just mean.

The new restrictions state that a vehicle MAY NOT be driven in the left lane except when overtaking and passing another vehicle, other than in situations where traffic conditions or road configurations require the use of the left-hand lane in order to maintain safe traffic conditions.

This new law may help decrease my road rage, what about yours?

There are a lot of left laners that won't pull over for you and I'm sure those are the ones this is aimed at. I travel the Turner Turnpike and I35 every other week and I see a lot of it.

Wonder how many will get pulled over for this on that first day?

Default Yep

Left lane hogs are aggravating but it seems this could contribute to congestion during high traffic times if people obey to the letter.

I'd thought it was already the law. There are signs that say "Slower traffic keep right". But I've seen cops hangin' in the left lane, so I guess it hasn't been actual law.
Since Left Lane Bandits are one of my biggest pet peeves, I wish I knew who instigated this legislation so I could write her/him a thank you note.
Like y'all say, it will be interesting to see if day-to-day anything changes.

Just read an article if you can call it that, a OHP spokesman said they realize that city traffic will need to populate the left lane during congested times.

I think Texas has the same type of law but I've never seen it enforced down there.

I know along I-35W north of the Texas Motor Speedway there are signs stating that the left lane is for passing only. However there always seems to be some old woman in a Dodge Caravan, camped in the fast lane doing 45 miles an hour... Kinda glad I'm not making that bi-weekly trip any more...
