UPDATE 6/30/22: Bill died in committee
Senate Bill 416 is pending before the House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee. It has already passed the Senate. The bill is a Lane Courtesy measure that would require slower traffic to drive in the right lane of rural interstates. However, the conditions under which this would be required are left to the discretion of the driver. The requirement would be published in the state’s driver education curriculum, and appropriate signage would be placed along interstates throughout the state.
The NMA encourages Lane/Driver Courtesy measures including the educational components associated with them. Moving over for faster traffic is one of the simplest ways to smooth traffic flow and increase highway safety.
