Fines Go Up for Left Lane Hogs

View Comments ()



    New Jersey is cracking down on motorists who stay in the left lane by upping fines.

    Gov. Chris Christie has signed into law a bill that raises the penalties for violating the state's keep-right law from $50 and $200 to between $100 and $300.

    Motorists in New Jersey are required to stay in the right lane unless they are passing slower traffic.

    The bill's sponsors say staying in the left lane creates a dangerous situation for other motorists.
