January is “Move Over” month, and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is urging all motorists to move over for emergency and service vehicles stopped along the roadway.

To comply with the state’s Move Over Law, drivers on a multi-lane roadway must vacate the lane closest to the law enforcement, emergency or service vehicle, signaling their lane change, and accommodate other vehicles also trying to change lanes, or slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit if a driver cannot move over safely.

On a two-lane roadway drivers must slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit, or to 5 mph if the speed limit is 20 mph or less.

The public is encouraged to report aggressive drivers by dialing FHP (347).
