Move Over Laws are in Effect

At State College Motors, we want to make sure that all of our customers are getting onto the road, fully aware of all of the laws. “Move Over” laws have been around for a while, though over 70% of drivers don’t know anything about them.

Move Over laws are simple. If you see any kind of emergency vehicle with lights on parked or stopped next to the road, make a lane change. This way, you give them the necessary room to work. Law enforcement officers have been killed because of traffic-related accidents, so this law is in place to protect them.

The laws are designed for you to move to a farther lane or reduce your speed if you can’t get over. If you fail to move over or reduce your speed, you could be looking at a fine or jail time for breaking the law.
