What to Know About Move Over Laws

At Spradley Kia, we want you to know as much as possible about safely operating a motor vehicle. If you are driving and see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, it is generally a good idea to move over. In fact, the law may require you to do so.

This is designed to protect police, firefighters or others who may respond to an emergency situation. They may have to get out of their vehicles while on a highway or other busy road. Therefore, moving over can prevent a collision between your vehicle and a vulnerable individual.

It's important to note that you should only move over if there an opportunity to do so. If you can't get into the next lane, do your best to slow down. Always keep your focus on the road as opposed to what emergency responders are doing.
