January Is "Move Over" Month

The arrival of a new year is a great opportunity to consider embracing better driving habits, including but not limited to not driving distracted or aggressively. The month of January also signifies Florida’s “Move Over Awareness Month”, and for those of that have driven several miles in South Florida, countless drivers still do not practice the important concept of moving over. This law plays a vital role in protecting those men and women working by the roadside to ensure they are able to return home to their loved ones.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2019 -- The American Association of State Troopers is using January to raise awareness among Florida motorists on how essential the move over law is. It is easy to understand. This law mandates that all drivers must change lanes for any emergency vehicles, law enforcement, tow truck drivers, and utility service vehicles. Should a driver be unable to move to an adjacent lane, he or she is required to reduce their speed by twenty miles based on the posted speed limit. Drivers that do not follow the move over law may face a ticket, fine, and up to three points on their driver's license.
