2022 Move Over. It’s the Law.
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to inform the driving public about important lifesaving “Move Over” laws in effect in every State in America.
The law, requiring motorists to slow down and, if safe to do so, move over when passing emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the road with emergency lights activated, hasn’t reached all drivers yet. Since 2017, there have been 149 law enforcement officers alone killed in traffic-related incidents. Our goal is simple: We want all drivers to know that when they see flashing lights on the side of the road, they are required to Move Over. It’s the Law.
The mission of NHTSA is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce the economic cost of crashes on our nation’s highways. This mission extends to law enforcement and all first responders, as well. We have a responsibility to protect those who protect us.
