How Move Over Laws are Keeping First Responders Safer

When you’re driving down the road, do you know what the Move Over laws are in the area that you're traveling? At Valley Imports Mitsubishi, we’re trying to get the word out so that you can be sure to move over when you see an emergency vehicle.

The Move Over laws vary by state. However, the basic concept is that if you see an emergency vehicle stopped on or on the side of the road, you move to a different lane. By doing so, you give them more room to work so that they don’t risk being struck and killed by a moving vehicle.

The laws were passed across the country to protect police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. In the past 10 years, over 130 personnel were killed because of working so close to traffic. You are now required to move over or slow down when you see them.
