Move Over Laws Help Save Lives

Because of the many deaths in America related to roadside workers getting struck and killed while doing their duties on the side of a highway, a law has been put into place to prevent the number of deaths. The move over law has made it a requirement for motorists to slow down and change lanes when approaching shouldered vehicles with hazards lights flashing.

Since the addition of the law, there has been a decrease in the number of related law enforcement deaths in America. Since 1999, over 150 law enforcement officers have been struck and killed while pulling people over on the shoulder of a highway. The move over law is one way for us to keep officers and our fellow citizens safe by slowing down, changing lanes and giving them the proper space needed to comfortably do their highway duties with limited danger.

The MINI of Portland dealership makes it an obligation to spread the word about the move over law to ensure that more motorists are slowing down and changing lanes when appropriate. Do your part and save lives!
