Move over law improves safety on side of road

Comments Off

Colorado law enforcement officials and emergency personnel risk their lives every day when they’re pulled over on the side of the road to clock speeders or help people. That’s why Governor Bill Ownes and the state legislature passed the “move over law” two years ago.

The law says that motorists must move vehicles over a lane when passing emergency personnel or police on the side of the road. This will help law enforcement and emergency workers do their jobs helping others who have been victims of motor vehicle accidents, and stay safer while doing it.
