MOVE OVER OR SLOW DOWN – The Texas Department of Public Safety will be enhancing enforcement efforts in Wise County today. DPS will focus specifically on violations of the state’s move over/slow down law. The law, originally passed in 2003, requires motorists to move over or slow down when certain vehicles – including police, fire, EMS, Texas Department of Transportation vehicles and tow trucks – are stopped on the side of the road with emergency lights activated. The law states the driver must vacate the lane closest to the applicable vehicles stopped on the side of the road (if the road has multiple lanes traveling in the same direction), or slow down 20 mph below the speed limit.
