Effective today, July 1st, the amended MOVE OVER ACT adds utility service vehicles and sanitation vehicles to the list of public safety vehicles motorists must already slow down or move over for to protect personnel.

Under the new law, motorists are required to:

Approach law enforcement patrol cars, emergency vehicles, utility service vehicles, sanitation vehicles, and tow trucks/wreckers with caution.

Change lanes away from these vehicles if traveling on a multi-lane roadway and able to move over safely; or
Slow down to a speed that is 20 mph less than the posted speed limit, when a clearly identified emergency or work-crew vehicle is parked and crews are working.

Violating the Move Over Act can result in a fine and points on your license.
