Get the Facts on Moving Over

All around the United States, there are “Move Over” laws that need to be followed. Unfortunately, many drivers still don’t know about them. At Pensacola Honda, our goal is to make sure you know the rules about moving over.

The law is that when you see an emergency vehicle stopped on the side of the road with lights or sirens, you move over. Put on your turn signal and move to the other lane so that the first responders have room to work. The laws were passed to prevent officers from being struck and killed in the line of duty.

You should try your best to move over. If you cannot, slow down your speed based on the weather and traffic conditions. Should you violate the law, you run the risk of being penalized with a fine of up to $500.
