New Laws in Indiana
Come July 1, a new Indiana law enacted by Republican Gov. Mike Pence gives speeders the right-of-way and motorists obeying the speed limit in the left lane could get slapped with a fine.
House Enrolled Act 1305 permits police to issue $500 tickets to left lane drivers who fail to move into the right lane if they know, or should reasonably know, another vehicle is overtaking them — even if the other vehicle is exceeding the speed limit.
The mandate does not apply during traffic congestion, bad weather, when exiting on the left, paying a toll or pulling over for an emergency vehicle, according to the new law.
Those who violate the law are committing a Class C infraction and may be subject to a ticket at the officer’s discretion. The maximum fine for that offense is $500.
Overhauling Indiana’s tax sale system
Senate Bill 415 overhauls Indiana’s tax sale system and gives local governments new tools to fight blight.
Supporters say it will allow cities to take vacant properties out of the hands of tax-delinquent landowners more quickly. Under the new system, vacant homes sold at tax sale will be transferred to a new owner immediately instead of languishing in a one-year redemption period.
