“Would the committee entertain a motion to make this retroactive — to this morning — maybe a blue Camry?”

South Carolina state Sen. Sean Bennett, who has an approximately 95-mile commute to the Statehouse, said jokingly regarding a bill that would increase the fine that police can issue to people driving slowly in the left lane of interstates and other multilane highways. The so-called “slowpoke” bill was passed in 2021. Senators on a subcommittee said they noticed compliance when the law was first passed but that slower drivers have started to creep back toward the left lane. The fine will increase from $25 to up to $100 but is not a criminal penalty and does not get reported to a driving record. (Associated Press — Jan. 18, 2023)
