Fines or Fatalities Result From Not Moving Over

Statistics indicate nearly 200 roadside workers annually are injured or killed in the line of duty according to the National Traffic Incident Coalition. Moreover, the National Governor's Highway Safety Commission recommends increased public awareness of move over laws in each of the 50 states to help address the issue. In a survey conducted by the Mason Dixon Polling Service, findings show over 70 percent of Americans were unfamiliar with move over laws.

Emergency vehicles include police, fire, first responders and tow services. When these vehicles are parked on the road, or the shoulder and have lights flashing, drivers are to change lanes if possible, or slow speed to 20 MPH below the posted speed. The Westgate Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM recommends drivers become aware of, and observe the move over laws in their region.
