Default Washington State: Appeals Court Busts Left Lane Bandit

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/64/6456.asp

Conviction upheld for man who drove in the left lane without passing in Washington state.


"The question before the court, however, was only whether the deputy was right to order the Impala to pull over merely because it was traveling in the left lane without passing other traffic. The state law on the subject contains two provisions. One says traffic should stay in the right-hand lane, unless the driver can cite one of four listed reasons for moving left, including passing a slow vehicle. The other says it is an infraction to drive continuously in the left lane and impede traffic."

~

""The subsections are reconcilable," Judge Laurel Siddoway wrote for the court. "An individual is permitted to drive in the left lane when one of the transient exceptions identified in subsection (2) applies, unless the transient exceptions arise so frequently that the individual's continuing travel in the left lane is impeding traffic. Because the conduct that is forbidden by statute can be understood by ordinary people, we also reject Mr. Thibert's passing argument that the statute is void for vagueness.""
