Life in the Fast Lane: New Jersey lawmakers get tough with slow poke drivers in left lane

(CBS) TRENTON, N.J. - Lawmakers in New Jersey are toughening the penalties for motorists who don't keep in the left lane.

The state legislature has passed a bill that authorizes up to a $300 for failing to move over and keep right if you're not keeping up to speed in the passing lane, CBS Philly reported.

Sponsors of the bill say going slow in the left lane causes accidents and road-rage incidents.

To which Crimesider might add...what doesn't?

There is no word on whether Gov. Christie will sign the bill.
