WASHINGTON - Washington motorists spoke and Washington State Troopers have listened.
Starting on Tuesday, June 20th, Washington State Patrol will begin a statewide effort to address left lane violators after receiving many complaints about vehicles camped out in the left lane.
Washington State Patrol said consequences of camping in the left lane can lead to road rage, congestion and collisions.
If you are caught traveling in the left lane with no one to your right, you can also receive $136 ticket.
The law requires, "all vehicles to keep right except when passing on multiple lane roadways."
Left lane "campers" are drivers who remain in the passing lane (left lane) for long periods of time without passing."
