Georgia makes it illegal to hold up traffic in the fast lane. Stay right unless you are passing is now the law in Georgia

The bill makes it a misdemeanor for any driver on a divided highway who does not move to the right when a car going faster approaches from behind.

Senators said they were not trying to encourage speeding. However, as Senate Rules Chairman Jeff Mullis, R-Chickamauga, said, “often times drivers travel through (the left lane) as if they’re in tourist mode.”

Upon roads, streets, or highways with two or more lanes allowing for movement in the same direction, no person shall continue to operate a motor vehicle in the passing lane once such person knows or should reasonably know that he or she is being overtaken in such lane from the rear by a motor vehicle traveling at a higher rate of speed. For purposes of this Code section, 'passing lane' means the most left-hand lane other than a high occupancy vehicle lane.

House Bill 459, the slow poke bill,  passed the house almost unanimously 162 to 9, and goes into effect July 1st
