What it Means to Move Over

At Anastos Motors, we’ve found that many drivers don’t know what the Move Over laws are. We want you to be safe, which is why we want to make sure you’re abiding by all laws. These are specific to emergency vehicles.

When you’re driving down the road and there is an emergency vehicle stopped with flashers on, your role is to switch lanes so that you give them more room to work. They could be stopped on the road or pulled over to the side. Either way, you need to give them the room so that they aren’t struck and killed.

The laws were created to prevent officers from being killed in the line of duty on our nation’s highways. If you fail to move over as the law says, you can be fined up to $500. In some instances, you can even face jail time.
