Lane Courtesy Month: A Reminder to Drive Right, Pass Left!

Waunakee, WI:   June has been designated Lane Courtesy Month by the National Motorists Association and the NMA Foundation. Lane Courtesy or lane discipline as it is sometimes called is quite simply staying in the right lane on the highway except to pass slower moving vehicles.

When motorists use lane courtesy every time they drive they will find they are generally safer because they drive with the traffic instead of continuously weaving in and out of traffic. Motorists will save gas and arrive quicker at their destination because they are going with the traffic flow which allows for a smoother ride.  Most importantly, when motorists use lane courtesy there will be less road rage and less overall stress while driving.

The National Motorists Association urges motorists to serve as a role model by keeping right to yield to faster traffic, practicing Lane Courtesy year round.
