bill in Alabama to require tractor-trailers to remain in
the right lane or lanes of some parts of the state's interstates
is now before the Commerce, Transportation and Utilities
was introduced by Sen. Charles Steele, D-Tuscaloosa.
bill would not allow an operator of a tractor-trailer to
drive in the left lane unless the driver was directed to
do so by a law-enforcement officer, in an emergency, or when
required to enter or exit the highway. The bill sets the
fine for either offense at $150 for the first offense and
$300 for any subsequent offense.
