Montgomery County Police Concerned with Drivers Going Too Slow

From the Gazette:
"The Montgomery County Police Department is seeking to amend state law to require that drivers in the left lane of some roads yield to faster cars.

The request was among 10 state legislative proposals discussed by the Montgomery County Council on Tuesday. Melanie Wenger, director of the county’s Office of Intergovernmental Relations, said County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) supports the legislation.

Drivers would be required to pull to the right if they were driving below the speed limit, or if they were driving at or over the speed limit, but a car approaching from behind was driving faster.

Update 7/15/2010: The Montgomery County Police have since withdrawn the request for this legislation, after it received attention in the media.
