Illinois tells left lane slow pokes to move over

| 6/3/2003

A bill that targets slow pokes in the left lane has passed the Illinois General Assembly and is awaiting the governor’s signature.

HB1574 would allow law-enforcement officials to pull over and ticket motorists who hold up other traffic in the left lane of “controlled access multilane highways.” The bill, sponsored by Rep. John Millner, R-Carol Stream, passed the House 99-13 on March 26, and cleared the Senate by a vote of 40-10 on May 13.
