Move Over, It’s the Law
Arizona’s “Move Over ” law requires motorists to move over one lane — or slow down if it is not safe to change lanes — when driving by any vehicle with flashing lights pulled to the side of a road or highway.
Arizona’s “Move Over” law applies to all vehicles with flashing lights pulled over on any freeway, multilane highway or city road or street. It aims to protect everyone who uses our roads and highways and everyone who works on or next to them.
On a national average:
- one tow truck drier is killed every six days
- 23 highway workers and one law enforcement officer are killed every month
- five fire fighters are killed every year
due to Move Over law violations. Help keep Arizona first responders safe and Move Over.
