Left Lane Losers

Turn HOV Lane into Interstate Semi-truck Lane

Turn HOV Lane into Interstate Semi-truck Lane

 I will ask the Legislature to fund 20 new highway patrolmen to ticket anyone driving slow in the left lane. 


These patrolmen will drive unmarked cars of random make and model. 


When they find someone in the left lane who does not move over for a faster-moving vehicle, they will pull over the Left Lane Loser and issue a $250 ticket.


While pulled over, there will be a flashing LED light in the back of the patrol car saying, "$250 Left Lane Loser Ticket."

 Studies show HOV lanes increase congestion. Let's put it to better use. 


I will ask the Legislature to convert the current I-15 HOV lane into a lane used only by semi-trucks.


Semi-trucks will be limited to that lane only, unless directly leaving or entering I-15.


The minimum speed limit will be 65mph, and any truck caught driving slower will be issued a ticket.

Texting and Driving

When they find someone texting while driving, they will issue a $250 ticket.


While pulled over, there will be a flashing LED light in the back of the patrol car saying, "$250 Texting Ticket."

Death to E-scooters

Trax and Frontrunner Rebates

Texting and Driving

 I will ask the Legislature to ban all non-privately-owned e-scooters. We're all tired of the eyesore. 


No, I don't mean Little Bobby's new Christmas scooter. I mean the Silicon Valley-spawned "shared scooter" blight.


Be gone, I say. Be gone!
