Arkansas Motorist Proper Lane Usage Law

State Law STKR
The Arkansas Department of Transportation is installing signs across the State to remind motorists of an existing law that prevents vehicles from continuous travel in the left lane of a multilane roadway whenever it impedes the flow of other traffic, according to Department officials.
ARDOT crews are currently installing yellow “State Law” signs directly above all “Slower Traffic Keep Right” signs already in place on applicable multi-lane highways. Approximately 600 of the new “ State Law” signs have been produced and crews are currently posting them.
Arkansas Code 27-51-301 states that motor vehicles shall not be operated continuously in the left lane of a multilane roadway whenever it impedes the flow of other traffic.    MORE

Give The Gift Of Life

blood donations

The American Red Cross has a critical need for O Negative Blood Donors. O negative blood is used when there is no time to determine blood type.

In order to donate you must be in good health, 17 years of age or older and weigh at least 110 pounds.

Benefits of Donating include: It feels great to donate! You get free juice and delicious cookies.  It’s something you can spare – most people have blood to spare… yet, there is still not enough to go around. You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed – most people don’t think they’ll ever need blood, but many do. You will be someone’s hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.   MORE
