    Editorial note: The writer of this article holds a significant amount of bias towards the above subject matter; believing, not only should drivers who block the left-hand lane - out of ignorance or sheer indifference - be hit with a fine, but also be immediately vaporized into submicroscopic particles and swept away into the blowing wind, and assuredly out of existence. Please consider this when reading the article. Thank you.

    That is hilarious. I mean, people do drive fast here, and some people are clueless and makes me wonder if they ever took driver's ed, but the fact that the vote was unanimous cracks me up. I wish other issues could be so easy. If somehow MARTA could be tied to a car we might have better luck.

    Why does the writer of this article taking credit for it? He merely lifted it and re-wrote it a little bit from 11alive.com. The comment section does not allow me to provide you with the exact link so you can compare and be amazed.

    This bill has is a waste of time. One can still drive 55MPH in the left lane on 285 and inside the Perimeter because that is the posted speed limit. Slow poke tickets will be issued when troopers start writing tickets for crossing the HOV solid lines.

    This is a great idea and long overdue.
