Move Over Because It's the Law

The United States has laws specifically designed to protect emergency responders operating alongside the highway. Such laws exist in all fifty states and were created out of necessity because of increasing roadside fatalities. They are called move over laws and require drivers, upon noticing emergency vehicles on the side of the road, to change lanes or slow down to a reasonable speed. This provides safety so emergency personnel can do their duty without risk. Unfortunately, most drivers fail to comply with these laws because they are unaware they exist.

At Holzhauer Motors Ltd., we want to keep emergency responders safe, and wish to spread the word about move over laws. Please remember when travelling to always change lanes or slow down when passing emergency vehicles on the side of the road. This includes law enforcement, fire trucks, ambulances, and tow trucks. Together we can reduce traffic fatalities and ensure safety for all.
