Driver cops fine for going too slow

We know it can happen but very rarely do we actually see it.

Most of us have to overtake the slow driver in front of us on the motorway and wish that cops were there to witness the snail speed.

So Western Australian drivers are rejoicing at traffic cops in Perth issuing a fine for driving too slow.

WA Police Traffic tweeted the fine early this morning, saying the driver was travelling 28km/h under the speed limit on the freeway.

People were quick to comment on officers taking action over the "painfully annoying" behaviour.

"Yay finally hope this is going to be the start of more to come," one man wrote.

Another said, "Also try educating people to merge at the speed limit and not 20km below the flow of traffic".

Others called for the same to happen on all roads.

"Slow drivers cause people to take risks, which results in accidents," said another Twitter user.

But some were more realistic saying this was a rarity and unfortunately will remain so.

Here's hoping!
