Georgia implemented its new “Slow Poke” law this week.
The law requires drivers in the left lane of a Georgia highway to move to the right when a vehicle traveling at a faster speed comes up from behind. Slower drivers who do not move out of the high-speed lane may be ticketed under the new law.
Proponents say the new law will reduce congestion, road rage and tailgating.
Massachusetts drivers were recently named some of the “most
discourteous” in the country. The Safeco Insurance survey found that only
Washington, DC, ranks worse for being discourteous.
Do you think Massachusetts should implement a similar Slow Poke law? Do you think that would help reduce road rage incidents and improve the overall mood of Bay State drivers? Let us know in the comments section below.
