image for White House Capitulates on Right Lane ban
Barricades are being removed from right lanes after widespread protests caused the Obama Administration to change course

Washington, D.C. Amid a storm of protest The Obama administration has quietly scrapped plans to enforce a Department of Transportation ruling banning right-hand lanes on the nations highways and byways.

The doomed program, which would have reconfigured roads to meet new standards in hopes of eliminating old, slow and conservative drivers, came under immediate fire when it was initiated under cover of darkness, not more than a week ago.

Department of Transportation officials said that it may still take weeks or months to remove all of the barricades, as some of the demolition work on right-hand lanes had already begun.

White House spokesperson Katie Couric downplayed the about-face, saying that the administration would "focus instead on narrowing some roads while eliminating others altogether."
