Drivers are now required to pull over or slow down for utility and road maintenance workers displaying flashing amber lights.
If you are in an area with at least two or more lanes available in each direction, you’re required to move over at least one lane. If there’s only one traffic lane, then you have to slow down, and be prepared to stop.
This new group is being added to help prevent accidents and keep our roadways safer for these workers. If a driver gets cited for non-compliance with the “Move Over” law the penalty is a $250 fine, plus court costs.
