A warning for drivers: If you're not passing someone, stay out of the left lane.

Michigan State Police are cracking down on left lane drivers.

Police are reminding people that any road with two or more lanes going the same direction, the left lane is supposed to be used for passing only.  But as we all know, slower drivers may hang out in the left lane.

Troopers say the biggest problem with that is it causes road rage among some drivers. Troopers also say it can slow down traffic.

Driving in the left lane without passing is a civil infraction and you could get a ticket if you get caught.
