COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Senate has passed a bill to fine people who don’t get over from the left lane of a three-lane highway when overtaken by traffic.
The version passed by the Senate fines drivers $25 but does not add any points to their license when they clog the left lane.
The House passed its own version of the bill, which included a $200 fine.
The House can either accept the Senate version, or the two chambers will have to work out a compromise.
Similar proposals have been frequently debated in recent years at the General Assembly, but have not passed.
