Police are reminding motorists that it’s not just lead-footed drivers who can get pulled over after a slowpoke driver was caught in the fast lane on an Ontario highway.

The OPP said it was a case of “Sunday driving on a Friday morning” when officers pulled over a driver on Highway 10 near Olde Baseline Road in Caledon.

Police say the driver of a silver Toyota was pulled over by officers “for sitting in the left lane,” forcing other drivers to pass on the right hand side.

Officers didn’t say just how slow the driver was going but said they were charged under the Highway Traffic Act with one count of fail to keep right when driving at less than normal speed.

The charge comes with a $180 fine and police are reminding drivers that you can get ticketed for driving below the posted speed limit.
