Find Out What Move Over Laws Are

At Jaguar Greensboro, we want to make sure that you’re safe when you’re on the road. ‘Move Over’ laws will vary state by state. However, when you’re driving, there are a few things you need to know.

Essentially, when an emergency vehicle using any visual signal is parked or stopped, drivers approaching the vehicle need to change lanes to avoid being immediately adjacent. If it’s impossible for you to switch lanes, slow down. It ensures that you’re protecting law enforcement officers and paramedics that must work next to traffic.

‘Move Over’ laws have been around in one form or another since as early as 1996. In 2012, the 50th state finally passed laws, meaning that all 50 states have the law. If you violate the law, fines and even jail time can be the penalty, which is all the more reason for you to move over.
