Move Over Law

Don't get caught by the police on the latest reason to pull you over:

The Move Over Law, which became effective in 2003, states that drivers should move over one lane, if possible, when an emergency vehicle has its lights on and is pulled over on the side of the highway. If it is not possible to move over, then drivers are required to slow down and be prepared to stop.

In this case, ignorance isn't bliss, it's a $500 ticket.

The reasoning behind the law was to protect the people working accident scenes, traffic violations, and road workers, etc. I agree that we should be more careful and hope all will try to abide if not for the $$ fine, then to protect those working on our behalf.
