What are the Move Over Laws?

It’s important to drive safely and follow all of the laws. At Kia on the Boulevard, we have found that many drivers aren’t aware of the Move Over laws. These are designed to keep first responders safe when they’re working on the side of the road.

Over 130 law enforcement officers and first responders have been struck and killed by traffic while working on the job. The Move Over laws are found in all 50 states as a way to protect them.

Your job is to move over to another lane when you see an emergency vehicle stopped or pulled over. As long as they have visual cues in place, you have to move over or slow down. If you don’t the penalties can be cumbersome. You could face fines of up to $500 or jail time, depending on the state you’re in when it happens.
