Move Over... It's The Law!

You know when you drive along North Carolina roads the law requires you to go the speed limit, wear your seat belt and turn your headlights on at night. But you may not be aware of several other important laws that you must also abide by as you travel across the state. One that most folks have forgotten is the "Move Over" law.

NC GS-20.157 - Under the "Move Over" law, motorists are required to move over one lane, if possible, or reduce speed for stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights on the shoulder of the highway, including public service vehicles with amber lights. Violating the law could result in a $500 fine. 

I saw this video on WRAL the other evening and thought it'd be great to share.

The actual law can be found here.

Several other Road Rules are here as a reminder.
