One of Texans’ biggest pet peeves is slow drivers who hang out in the fast lane, and here’s proof:

On Thursday, the Texas Department of Transportation published a seemingly simple tweet to remind motorists that it’s against state law to block left lane traffic.

We’ve heard many of you didn’t know: The left lane on a divided highway is a PASSING lane. After you pass someone, move into the right lane so you don’t hold up traffic. Impeding the flow of traffic by continuing to drive in the left lane is punishable by a fine of up to $200.
