Sometimes, it’s so satisfying seeing other motorists getting pulled over for behaving in ways that most of us would find annoying, if not outright dangerous.
Let’s face it, nobody wants to get stuck behind somebody who’s driving way under the speed limit on the fast lane. Oftentimes, these people seem to be almost clueless with regards to how their driving is affecting others behind them – and this one is a recipe for road rage or even an accident.
States such as Indiana have definitely gotten the message and in 2015 have passed a law giving officers the authority to give slow left lane drivers tickets for obstructing traffic.
According to ABC affiliate RTV6, such a fine can cost offenders up to $500, which is a pretty hefty sum.
This incident however took place in Michigan, where a Kent County Sheriff vehicle can be seen driving behind the “slowpoke” for quite some time before lighting up its lights. To our (and, we presume, the officers’) disbelief, the driver then went on to simply slow down even more without actually changing lanes and pulling over!
Unfortunately, the dashcam vehicle had to move on from the scene, so we didn’t get to see how it all ended. However, the simple fact that a traffic-impeding vehicle got pulled over is a win in our book. And yes, this kind of behavior is also illegal in the state of Michigan, so a fine was definitely in order.
So, you wanna go slow? No problem; just make sure you stay in the right lane and don’t impede the progress of others. It’s not quantum physics for crying out loud!
