I love that the last guy was also chaged with "failure to drive right"...lol is that really a charge? That one should just require the officer to smake the offender in the head and say "Drive right you moron" Or... maybe where he comes from driving off the road, drunk with a suspended liscense IS driving right..lol

Failure to drive right implies the use of the correct lane meaning he was in the left lane as opposed to the right.
