Road hogging is proscribed under Rule 5 of the Road Traffic Rules, which states that
(a) every vehicle which is moving at a slow rate of speed shall be driven as close to the left-hand side of the roadway as possible, and
(b) every vehicle shall at all times be driven in such manner as not to obstruct vehicles moving at a faster speed.
Breach of that Rule is an offence under Section 131 of the Road Traffic Act, which attracts a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine or 3 months’ imprisonment for the first offence, and a $2,000 fine or 6 months’ imprisonment for a second or subsequent offence. Where a person is convicted of the offence, four demerit points will also be awarded under the Driver Improvement Points System.
