this is great...
This is excellent news...I hope they do something like this in Ontario as well.
I'm getting very tired of the "holier than thou" idiots, whom are hoping to cure their inferiority complex by hogging up traffic so they can feel important just for a little while.

The cops might as well hand tickets out when traffic slows to a crawl and cars are caught in the left lane. Easy 1,500 in a week.

The problem is not when traffic slows to a crawl. Rather, the problem is in light to medium traffic when some dip-shit is driving in the passing lane with no consideration for other road users.

Ah. I am definitely not guilty of that. :) i move over after I pass people driving at 100 on the 2nd most left lane. When traffic is slower and lots of cars merging into the continuity lane, I would sometimes move to the leftmost lane but usually the rightmost is fastest when traffic is heavy.

I just drove to the Island and back from the interior last week. Believe me, plenty of people are still not getting the message. Most of them with white & red plates!

Kudos to BC for the effort. Hope it comes east as well.

I wonder if the cop cars have dash cams so tickets can't be challenged.

Sounds like time spent on the passing lane and speed will the most most objective measures but getting that evidenced will be more difficult than speeding alone.

I wonder how it's done in BC. Maybe victims can chime on. Good thing Highway 1 is still a one laner!

I read the title and thought "That's awesome! definitely couldn't be in Ontario... Sadly I was right :(

+1.
Last year during the super dry summer one of those actually caused a huge fire on the 404 between Stouffville and Bloomington in the centre grass divider. Caused a huge mess.
