New Traffic Law Could Cost You a $136 Ticket
Washington state has to have some of the stiffest traffic laws in the United States. Now the Washington State Patrol, and many motorists, are fed up with a certain pet peeve of driving that could get you a $136 ticket.
WSP is warning drivers not to be what they call left lane “campers.”
RCW 46.61.100 requires all vehicles to keep right except when passing on multiple lane roadways. Left lane “campers” are drivers who remain in the passing lane (left lane) for long periods of time without passing.
The focus of effort will take place June 20-22, 2017.
Reason being is one we all should know. The left lane is for passing. The Patrol contacted 16,453 violators last year. They also want to remind you that camping should be reserved for the wilderness, not the left lane.
