'Move over' law forces slow drivers out of the left-hand lane

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Beginning July 1, if you're driving slowly in the left lane, you could get a ticket.

Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law a measure which includes a provision designed to force slower drivers out of the left-hand lane. 

HB 7125 also revises the state's red-light camera law, allowing drivers to turn right on red, only after making a complete stop before turning.

Often referred to as the "move over" law, drivers who travel 10 miles or more under the minimum speed limit could get a $60 ticket.

Similar legislation was vetoed by then Gov. Jeb Bush in 2005.
