State Trooper Goes Viral After Pulling Over Everyone’s Least Favorite Type Of Driver

A State Trooper from the state of Indiana went massively viral after tweeting an image of a vehicle that he’d pulled over.

Sergeant Stephen Wheeles was out patrolling Indiana state highways when he encountered a vehicle driving slowly in the left lane.

The car — a Chevrolet Captiva, reportedly had “approximately 20 cars” stuck behind them.

Sergeant Wheeles saw this scene as a prime opportunity to share a traffic law that’s often forgotten.

After snapping a picture of the vehicle pulled over on the side of the road, the Trooper tweeted the image out with an accompanying message regarding road safety.

“I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.” Wheeles wrote. “Again…if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.”

That was last Saturday. Since then — the tweet has received nearly 100k likes.

Many have even gone so far as to adorn the Sergeant with the title “hero”.

The viral media spurred on discussion regarding common situations on the road. For instance, what happens if you’re driving the speed limit in the left lane and someone who’s speeding wants to pass?

Stephen went on to urge that he’s not encouraging speeding.

Keep killing it Sergeant Wheeles!
