First responders are performing an incredibly valuable service when they respond to roadside accidents. They shouldn’t be put at risk of injury in the course of performing their jobs, and educating drivers about moving over when first responders are on the side of the road is an important way to keep first responders safe.
Since all 50 states already have first responder laws in place, drivers are already responsible for knowing about Move Over laws if they’re on the road. There’s no need for additional education on this law. Additionally, there are some indications that Move Over laws are used to create revenue for police departments, which would be troubling if true.
