?Move over laws are in effect in all 50 states, even though many people are not aware of them. These laws have been put in place to keep drivers and emergency vehicles safe and help to protect road construction workers as well. Here are a few things you need to know about move over laws the next time you encounter a vehicle on the side of the road.

If a car is on the shoulder of the road, you should change lanes so that the lane near the shoulder of the road is open. If you're not able to change lanes, be sure to slow down so that you're going 15 miles per hour slower than the speed limit. This makes it easier and safer for emergency personnel and the motorists they are helping. It's not just polite; it's the law!
