Pass-Only Or Pay Up Law On Verge Of Passage

Florida lawmakers are moving forward with a new bill aimed at deterring left lane drivers. The new bill involves the so-called ‘Pass-Only Or Pay Up Law.’ On Thursday, it passed its last senate committee stop, and it is now headed to the full chamber of both the House and the Senate. If it gets final approval, it would mean drivers on highways with at least two lanes in the same direction and speed limits of 65 and over would all have to use the right-hand lanes, freeing up the left-hand lanes only for people passing slower traffic. If caught cruising in the left lane, violators could face a fine of $158. The only exceptions would be if the driver is about to exit, or if a law enforcement officer directs them to do so.
