Do You Know About the “Move Over” Laws?

There are “Move Over” laws in every state. It’s important to know what they are as you drive around town. With every car that is purchased at State Park Motors Inc, we educate drivers on these laws to ensure that everyone is being safe.

The “Move Over” laws were created as a way of keeping first responders and law enforcement officials safe when they’re working on the side of the road. In a span of 10 years, over 130 were killed because of being struck on a highway.

When you see an emergency vehicle parked or stopped on or on the side of the road, your job is to move over to another lane. If you cannot move over, slow down considerably so it’s safer for them to work. Failure to move over can result in fines of up to $500 and, in some cases, jail time.
