What You Need to Know About Move Over Laws

When it comes to the move over laws there is a lot more at stake than your car or acting on a common courtesy. Workers, emergency responders, tractor trailers, tow truck drivers and pedestrians who may be experiencing car troubles all benefit from this simple life-saving rule. The act of simply moving over can save your life or someone else's.

You won't always be able to change lanes when you approach a vehicle pulled to the side of the road with their hazard lights on, but you must at least slow down and proceed with caution if you cannot safely relocate to a lane that offers them safer distance. Law enforcement officers are cracking down on those who are not cooperating and issuing major fines to those who do not attempt to abide by the move over laws, resulting in higher insurance rates and permanent marks on the driver's record.

With every state now having a move over law, knowing your state's rules on the issue has never been more vital. Stop by Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek for extra details and to explore our new Subaru inventory for sale!
