The “move over” law was established in 2011 to require all vehicles in multi-lane roads to move over for police or emergency vehicles. If any emergency vehicle is stopped, parked or standing while displaying flashing lights drivers are required to slow down and carefully switch lanes. If you are on a single lane road, you are required to slow down and use caution. Failure to switch lanes or slow down can result in a “failure to yield to an emergency vehicle summons” with 3 points and $150 fine.
If you received a summons for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle or any other traffic ticket, we can fight for you.
