Michigan Tells Motorists to Move Over for Emergency Personnel
Michigan motorists could face $400 fine under new slow down, move over law designed to protect state’s emergency personnel.
Those of you who follow the Michigan Office of Highway Safety's Twitter account may already know an important new law took effect yesterday, Feb. 13. If you missed it, @MIOHSP posted the following:
"Michigan's expanded #MoveOver Law takes effect today. If you see police/fire/tow/emergency vehicles on the side of the road with their lights flashing, move over a lane if you can and slow to 10mph below the posted speed limit. If you don't, it could cost you $400!"
Last year, former Gov. Rick Snyder signed the law which requires drivers to move over a lane for emergency vehicles on the side of the road. This requirement also extends to tow trucks, garbage trucks, maintenance and utility vehicles that have their lights flashing. Drivers are also required to reduce their speed 10 miles per hour below the posted speed limit.
Be careful on those Michigan roads or you could face a stiff penalty!Tags: Transportation
