Tougher Move Over Laws

Lawmakers are looking at expanding the state’s ‘Move Over” law to include volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers whose vehicles have flashing blue or green lights.

The law already covers police, tow trucks and other emergency vehicles with flashing lights but until now private vehicles with emergency lights were not included.

It requires drivers to slow down and move a lane away from those vehicles when they’re stopped alongside the road, as long as it’s safe.
