Did you know that each year thousands of First Responders are injured or killed by passing vehicles along highways? In recognition of National Work Zone Awareness Week, we at ivalueSafety.com want to share a post regarding “Move Over” It’s The Law per the following:
Most states have adopted the “Move Over” Law. That means, if an Emergency Vehicle has its emergency lights activated while assisting a vehicle along the highway, you must Move Over into the next lane. If conditions don’t allow you to Move Over, slow down at least 20 MPH below the posted speed limit as you pass the scene. Help protect the lives of those who protect you.
