NEW TRAFFIC LAW - 2010

Post by Martin on Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:01 am

BETTER PAY ATTENTION TO THIS ONE.

Knew about the move over law but had not heard about the speed limit if you cannot move over.

NEW TRAFFIC LAW - 2010

New Law: If a patrol car is pulled over to the side
of the road, you have to change to the next lane (away from the stopped
vehicle) or slow down to at least 20 mph under the posted speed limit. Every state except Hawaii and Maryland and the D.C. has this law. In California, the Move-over law became operative on January 1, 2010.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] A person got a ticket for this
recently. A police car (turned out it was two police cars) was on the side
of the road giving a ticket to someone else. He slowed down to pass but did
not move into the other lane. The second police car immediately pulled him
over and gave him a ticket. He had never heard of the law. It is a fairly
new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if
you are able, you are to move into the far lane.

The cost of his ticket was $754, with three points
on his license and a mandatory court appearance. Please let everyone you
know that drives about this new law. It is true (see details at the
following web address). [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

This should prove interesting when drivers on I95 start to slow down to 45 MPH. Can you vision when a driver slow to 45 MPH when the officer is in the Left breakk down lane.

Let's see the state police enforce this law.


I still see people talking on their cell phones every day of the week on the back roads, highways and city streets.

The police do not enforce the cell phone law so why would they enforce the Move Over Law?
