MassDOT Traffic Safety Reminder: “Move Over"

 

The "Move Over" law, which took effect in March 2009, is meant to help protect police, firefighters, paramedics, tow truck drivers, and all roadside emergency and maintenance workers.
 
The law requires all drivers approaching a stationary emergency or maintenance vehicle with flashing lights to move to the next adjacent lane if it is safe to do so, and, barring that, to reduce their speed. Violating the Move Over Law could result in a fine of up to $100.
 
 

Every year, first responders across the country are injured or killed while providing emergency roadside help. MassDOT asks that all drivers across Massachusetts take a moment to slow down and move over - if it is safe to do so - if they see an officer, emergency responder or maintenance vehicle stopped on the side of the road.
