Today is the first day the new "Move Over Law" is in effect. This law protects first responders and other highway workers who are on the roadways performing their jobs.
The law requires the following:
1. Drivers move at least one lane over from emergency vehicles and crews on the roadway.
2. Drivers unable to changes lane must reduce their speed at least 20 MPH slower than the posted speed limit.
The law also increases fines and penalties against drivers who fail to change lanes and/or reduce their speed. Follow the PENNDOT link to learn.
Thank you for keeping our crews safe!
