'Move-Over' Law Important for Troopers Safety

After accidents and injuries, Maryland State Police are reminding Maryland drivers of the 'Move Over' Law.

PIKESVILLE, Md. -- After accidents and injuries, Maryland State Police are reminding Maryland drivers of the 'move over' law.

The law requires drivers to change lanes when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights on. Police say drivers should use caution and move over if it is safe.

State troopers across the state will be conducting traffic initiatives on October 21. Drivers are being warned to be alert of these traffic initiatives.

If drivers violate the 'move over' law, there is a primary offence of $110 and one point. If the violation causes an accident, the fine is $150 and three points. 

The law is to provide an extra sense of safety for police officers, firefighters, and emergency rescue personnel.
