Left Lane Drivers

By  | 

Drivers who hog the far left lane on roadways around Colorado could get hit in the wallet come January 1st.

A six-month-old state law restricts the left lane for passing on multi-lane highways where the speed limit is at least 65 miles per hour.

State troopers have been issuing warnings, but those will be replaced with $35 tickets beginning in 2005. The violation will also cost three points on a person's driver's license.

Exceptions will be made during rush hour.
