Georgia’s Rules for Minimum Speeds on Roadways, Georgia Code 40-6-184(a)(1) 

Georgia Code 40-6-184(a)(1) provides clear, simple guidelines for the minimum roadway speeds in the state. The statute reads: “No person shall drive a motor vehicle at such a slow speed as to impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, except when reduced speed is necessary for safe operation.”

If someone is driving at a velocity that prevents traffic, then s/he is not only in violation of the law, but also makes herself/himself susceptible to liability should he cause an accident.

Road & Travel Magazine recommends: “For those people who want to drive slowly, then please do so in the lanes designated especially for slower drivers. If you're holding up traffic or someone behind you is flashing their lights, please pull over to the slower lanes when the time is safe, and indicate your intentions with your turn signal or a friendly wave.” Read what to do after a car accident in Georgia.
