Drivers who stay in the left lane on Alabama Interstates for longer than a mile and a half without passing vehicles could soon get ticketed for it. Retired state trooper and current state lawmaker, Phillip Pettus recently proposed a bill called the “Anti-Road Rage Act.” Representative Pettus tells TV24 that he believes this bill would improve traffic in addition to preventing road rage incidents.
The bill would also allow exceptions such as traffic congestion, construction, or using a left lane exit. Although there are signs that already state, “Slower traffic to the right,” the Anti-Road Rage Act would make it easier to enforce. TV24 will provide an update on the status of the proposed bill once lawmakers return from spring break on April second.
