Don’t Laugh, YOU Could Get Pulled Over For Going Too Slow [Video]
A State Trooper in Indiana has become an online hero for pulling someone over for going too slow in the fast lane.
Don't laugh too hard. That's also the law in Michigan.
How many times have you been trying to enjoy a drive…even cruising in the fast lane…only to have some twerp literally slow your roll? Enter Sgt. Stephen Wheeles. The Indiana State Trooper posted a picture of a car he’d pulled over – one that had been traveling SUPER slow in the left lane…with 20 cars stuck behind.
"I was driving southbound on I-65 and I noticed that there was a line of traffic in the left lane going a little slow,” he writes. “I gave her plenty of chances to move back over to the right lane and she just did not do it. I used it as an opportunity to educate her on what the law is.”
The Twitterverse has since gone bananas – and cheered Sgt. Wheeles. Of course, they were also curious if that gave them permission to speed. And that answer is NO. “The spirit of the law is that since many people drive well above the speed limit, it creates an “accordion effect” as traffic starts backing up behind the slower vehicle,” he explains. “This is where many of our crashes occur on the interstates. It’s all in the name of safety.”
Michigan recently enacted a similar law, although I have yet to see it enforced. Come on, Michigan State Troopers, which of you will be the first to show us you're serious about slow rollers?
