Florida's New "Move Over" Law

Move Over Law in FloridaGet Ready to Move Over

Most of us are aware of Florida's "move over" law. The law that was originally conceived to keep law enforcement officers and emergency responders safe on the sides of Florida's highways requires motorists to vacate the lane closest to emergency vehicles. If it's not safe to move over, or it's a two-lane roadway, motorists must slow down to a speed at least 20 mph below the speed limit. If the speed limit is 20 mph or less, the motorist must slow down to 5 mph or less. Failure to comply with this law could result in a traffic citation for a moving violation carrying a fine of $165 or more and three points on a driver's license.
