Iowa House bill (HF74) aims to stop slow-moving drivers in left lane

A bill that targets slow-moving drivers in the left lane has accelerated in the Iowa Statehouse, and it could cost offenders $100 if they refuse to move over.

House File 74 passed out of subcommittee Wednesday and will be voted on by the full House Transportation Committee next week.

Iowa legislators call the offense “left-lane loitering,” which applies to motorists traveling in the two-lane portions of the interstate and two-lane highways who stay in the farthest left lane.
