Drivers who go slowly in the left lanes of highways are such a common nuisance that British Columbia is considering ways to coax them into keeping right.
Todd Stone, B.C.’s Minister of Transportation, told CTV Vancouver that he was reminded of the problem after the province conducted a review of rural road safety.
“One of the key things that we heard from British Columbians all over the province was this frustration related to left-lane hogs,” he said.
