Move Over...It's the Law!!!
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Chief Jeffery Hatton
December 5, 2023

Keep our Emergency Workers and First Responders SAFE while operating on the roadways, MOVE OVER, It's the law!!!

The intent of the Move Over law is to provide an extra barrier of safety for motorists, along with police officers, fire fighters, emergency medical service personnel and utility workers working on Maryland roads. It is hoped that drivers will become more aware of police and emergency workers and others stopped along the road and move away from them or slow down as they pass by the traffic stop or incident scene.

This movement should only be done if another lane in the same direction is available and the move can be made safely and without impeding other traffic. If moving to another lane away from the stopped vehicle is not possible, the law requires drivers to slow to a reasonable and prudent speed that is safe for existing weather, road, and vehicular or pedestrian traffic conditions.
