“Move Over”- it’s the law
The Florida Highway Patrol is working with Alabama and Georgia law enforcement to get drivers to move over. Lieutenant Bill Leeper says the “Move Over” law has been around for ten years, but many drivers still don’t know what they need to do.
He says paying attention to this law could mean decreasing the number of accidents we see around the state. A press conference today will help focus this campaign, which will continue through February.
