Bills would expand seatbelt law, fine left-lane lingering

Buckle up and drive right: The Mississippi House is advancing two bills to further regulate behavior on the roads.
The House voted Tuesday to pass House Bill 539 , requiring all back-seat passengers to wear seat belts. Current state law requires seatbelts for people in the front seat, and small children in the back.
The House also passed House Bill 511 , setting a fine of $5 to $50 for people who drive slowly in the left lane of a highway.
