LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Do you always drive in the left lane of the interstate? If so, did you know you’re breaking an Arkansas law?

The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) says its crews are installing signs across the state to remind drivers of the law that prohibits vehicles from continuous travel in the left lane of a multi-lane highway whenever it impedes the flow of other traffic. 

Yellow “State Law” signs are being placed directly above all “Slower Traffic Keep Right” signs already in place on applicable multi-lane highways. About 600 of the new “State Law” signs are going up. 

Arkansas Code 27-51-301 states that “motor vehicles shall not be operated continuously in the left lane of a multi-lane roadway whenever it impedes the flow of other traffic.”

The law was passed by the 89th General Assembly in 2013. An ARDOT promotional campaign reminds motorists to “Be Polite, Keep Right.” It explains that impeding the flow of traffic by continuously driving in the left lane is a violation of Arkansas law. Slower traffic should keep right and allow passing vehicles use of the left lane.
