Move Over: It's the Law!

Whether you are driving around Oshkosh or across the country, you are required by law to change lanes to give space for any emergency vehicle on the roadside with its lights flashing.

Even though all 50 states have "Move Over" laws in place to protect emergency workers providing assistance or carrying out their duties on the side of the highway, 71 percent of Americans are not aware of this responsibility according to a poll sponsored by the National Safety Commission.

Your friends here at Bergstrom Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM want to remind you to watch out for emergency vehicles. If you notice a law enforcement vehicle, tow truck, ambulance, or other emergency vehicle on the side of the road; please move over to the left lane if at all possible. If you cannot move to the left lane, please at least slow down as you pass. These actions are not only courteous, but they are also required by law.
