Indiana Police Targeting Violators of Move Over Law
Next week, Indiana and Kentucky Police will be doing state-wide patrols targeting drivers who violate the Move Over Law. In case you were unaware of of the Move Over Law, it requires drivers to change lanes to give clearance to law enforcement officers, firefighters, ambulances, utility workers, and in some cases, tow-truck drivers. This should be common sense/courtesy, however, I still see drivers choosing not to move over into the other lane when a situation like this arises.
That is why Indiana State Police, along with police from Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania will be cracking down on violators of the Move Over Law July 22nd through July 28th according to 44 News. So consider this a "heads up" to make sure that you yield the right-of-way by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to that of the authorized emergency vehicle.
Now, if you are unfamiliar with what all the Move Over Law entails, you might want to give yourself a little refresher before next week. In all honesty, you should know this regardless as it is still a law 365 days out of the year. To learn more about the Move Over Law, you can click on the link below.
