Drivers cutting back into traffic could face fine

Ticket is nearly $200 in South Florida


It's a problem all of South Florida sees every single day, but now, instead of just being bugged, Local 10 Investigates has the official buzz on how to handle it.

South Floridians know what it's like to drive around, be backed up and to later have someone race around and cut back in.

But you probably didn't know it's highly illegal and the ticket is nearly $200.

The good news is, it's what's bugging police, too.

Police told Local 10 Investigates the legal way to stop all of this is to safely close the gap with the car in front of you, and not let anyone cut in.

Police said drivers have the right of way in this situation. Safely enforcing that right will stop you from being bugged.
