Louisiana State Police Begin Enforcing New Left-Lane Law

October 26, 2009

Louisiana state troopers have begun enforcing a new law requiring drivers on multi-lane highways to remain in the right lane.

The state Highway Safety Commission says state police began enforcing it earlier this month.

There are several exceptions to the law. Drivers can use the left lane while passing; while preparing for a left turn; when the right lane is congested; when emergency vehicles are on the right shoulder with emergency lights on; or when directed into the left lane by police.

Otherwise, motorists must use the right lane.

Offenders can be fined up to $100.
