WTOP-FM obtained data on the citations through a public records request. The station reports that from July 2017 through April 3, more than 16,000 people were cited under various parts of the law.

The law established a $100 fine for driving too slowly in the left lane, failing to stay to the right unless passing and other related violations.

These 10 states are the most dangerous for drivers.

The bill's sponsor, Del. Israel O'Quinn, says driving too slowly in the left lane endangers law enforcement and spurs road rage.
