    Quick Tip of the Week: Move Over Traffic Law

    Quick Tip of the Week: Move Over Traffic Law

    I did not know this.  Inform your clients about this new law I know they will appreciate it.  I did.

    Subject: New traffic law
    New Traffic Law 2010

    New Law: If a patrol car is pulled over to the side of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped vehicle) or slow down by 20 mph. Every state except Hawaii and Maryland and the D.C. has this law. In California , the "Move-over" law became operative on January 1, 2010. A friend's son got a ticket for this recently. A police car (turned out it was 2 police cars) was on the side of the road giving a ticket to someone else. He slowed down to pass but did not move into the other lane. The second police car immediately pulled him over and gave him a ticket. He had never heard of the law. It is a fairly new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if you are able, you are to move into the far lane.  If it is not safe to move to the far lane, then you must slow down by 20 mph.


    It's true!
