Indiana State Trooper’s tweet gets huge response

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – In case you were unaware, you can be pulled over by the police for driving too slow. In Indiana, the law is that you should use the left lane as a passing lane. The measure went into effect in 2015, stating that drivers in Indiana traveling in the left lane of a road with more than one lane must move to the right if there’s a car behind them moving faster, even if the car in the left lane is going at or above the speed limit. According to WISH-TV, some have called it the “Slowpoke Law,” referring to the slow drivers plugging up the passing lane.

And if you have driven on I-69, you know it can be a problem. Which is probably the reason why one Indiana State Troopers’ tweet is getting so much attention and love.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles tweeted last week, “I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.

Again…if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.”

The tweet has gotten over 17-thousand retweets, and so far has beend showered with the praise of over 50-thousand likes.
