NJ Issues Record High ‘Left Lane Hog’ Tickets
It's been a hot topic on the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show the past few mornings...what do you think about people who cruise in the left lanes on the Parkway?
New Jersey issued over FIFTY THOUSAND tickets last year for drivers who hogged the left lane. So far this year? Nearly 17,000.
With my schedule, I'm lucky to avoid heavy rush hour traffic. Still, I occasionally get stuck behind someone who doesn't understand the logic behind the left lanes being for passing only. I get that when all traffic is moving slowly it doesn't really matter, but if I can be moving up the Parkway (obviously obeying the speed limit as I always do) and someone is going under the limit in the left lane, it drives me insane.
Some people have called FBHW to try to defend their actions - are you a left lane hog? Can you justify your behavior?
