What should you do if an ambulance is behind you and needs to get to the shoulder of the road? How should you react if a vehicle near you has its emergency blinkers on and needs to get off the highway immediately? If you're not sure how to answer these questions, you may not be aware that there are move over laws in your state.

According to Move Over laws, you should change lanes so that there is enough space for a vehicle to safely move to the shoulder of the highway. If traffic is too congested and you're not able to get over, you should slow down to 15 miles per hour below the speed limit in that area. Adhering to these laws ensures that vehicles that have been in accidents can get out of the flow of traffic quickly, and emergency medical technicians can tend to individuals right away.
