Oregon bill would penalize left-lane hogs

Drivers who are “left-lane hogs” could be ticketed under legislation passed by the Oregon Senate Tuesday.

Senate Bill 532 would require drivers on highways with at least two lanes going in the same direction to use the left lane only for passing other vehicles.

Violators could be fined $110.

“It really puts into our law just common courtesy,” said Sen. Ginny Burdick, D-Portland, who carried the bill. “When you’re in the left lane you should be passing. If you’re not passing you should move to the right. That’s just polite.”

The bill provides exceptions for situations such as road hazards or complying with Oregon’s “move over” law, which requires drivers to change lanes or slow down when passing emergency and roadside assistance vehicles.

1. Oregonians are the worst at sleeping in the left lane!

"pick a lane, pick a speed, it's all good" is the attitude all across that state.
