Police will focus on Move Over violations

From staff reports

Troop E of the Pennsylvania State Police, which includes Franklin state police, has joined state police from five other states in focusing on violations of the Move Over Law starting Sunday and continuing until July 24.

The Move Over Law requires drivers to move over or slow down when they encounter an emergency scene, traffic stop or disabled vehicle.

The law says drivers should pass in a lane not adjacent to that of an emergency response area if possible.

If passing in a nonadjacent area is impossible, illegal or unsafe, drivers are to pass the emergency response area at a speed no more than 20 miles per hour under the posted speed limit and reasonable for safely passing the emergency response area, police said in a press release.
