On Tuesday, the PA Move Over Law went into effect. In short, this law requires drivers approaching an emergency response area who are unable to safely merge into a lane further away from the response area to slow to at least 20 mph less than the posted speed limit. An emergency response area is where an emergency vehicle has its lights flashing, or where road crews or emergency responders have lighted flares, posted signs, or try to warn travelers.
Our dedicated Fire Police have had some close calls, as well as one being struck by a car. Please, when you see police vehicles, fire apparatus, medic units, tow truck operators and road maintenance crews, slow down and move over.
