An Indiana State Police trooper who tweeted a photo of a vehicle he stopped for driving too slowly in the left lane says he has since been overwhelmed by the widespread praise that he’s receiving online. Sgt. Stephen Wheeles stopped the driver Saturday on Interstate 65, about 35 miles south of Indianapolis, after about 20 vehicles had slowed behind her. Wheeles says she was traveling under the 70 mph speed limit, and Indiana law requires slower drivers to move to the right lane to allow faster traffic to pass.

The post has since been widely retweeted by thousands of people, including IndyCar driver Graham Rahal, who said, “This guy is my hero,”  and Fox NFL announcer and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman. Others suggested he win a Nobel Prize or asked him to relocate to their states.
