Houston PD launches campaign to educate drivers on purpose of left freeway lane

quote:

HOUSTON --- A law you may not know about could cost you $500.

Roxanne Cates said she has always driven in the left lane of traffic, no matter what people did to her on Houston-area roads.

“They usually give me the bird or wave at me,” she said with a laugh.

A Montgomery County Deputy Constable stopped Cates near New Caney Wednesday for refusing to move out of the far left lane on the Eastex Freeway.

She didn’t know slower drivers are required by law to move to the right.

“I usually stay in that far left lane. I get in that lane and stay in it all the way home,” she said.

“You’ve got many lanes you can ride in. So if somebody is coming up behind and they are going faster than you, just need to move over,” Dpt. Constable Jeff Buchanan said.

Officers said a lot of people don’t know the left lane rule.

So they’re starting a campaign to stop cars that just won’t move over for faster moving traffic.

frick you Roxanne, you dumb whore.

And while it's needed, this will never work. I forgot how much I hated Houston traffic until I had to drive in it all week. Maddening.

I support huge fines for clowns who hang out in the left lane. Maybe even mandatory 7-10 day jail time too.

They need to make the campaign Texas wide. No one with a Texas license plate knows this law.

Chick is dumb.

My mom and brother say if they are going five over the limit and someone comes up on them, they don't move over. Said they are going "fast enough."

We get in a disagreement over their retarded opinion from time to time.

My wife's entire family does this shite. I asked them about it one time and none of them had any clue that the left lane was for passing.

Houston PD wants slower drivers to move over so they can write more speeding tickets.

I used to just get mad and ride their tail for a bit, now I blow my horn and flash my brights until they move over. IDGAF

This really blows my mind. The thing that really stuck with me was on my visit, some years ago, was that on a 2 lane road if you were going faster than someone they'd pull over to let you pass. I'd never seen anything like it before in my life. They were actually pulling over in to the emergency lane, but it was so big it was almost a 2nd lane itself.

My head almost exploded today in a 2 lane section with drivers on both left and right lanes coasting at 45 in a 60.

That is execution worthy offenses when I'm yabba dabba doo'ing my arse home from work.

Texas drivers are the fricking worst. Travel down any interstate in Louisiana and you'll probably be delayed by a Texas driver hanging out in the left lane.

It was 50/50 both ways going from Houston to NOLA and back. Which is still bad since I was in LA, but LA drivers are only marginally better.

You haven't seen left lane driving until you've been to the northeast, trust me. Maryland is the absolute worst.
