Move Over and Slow Down on Local Highways

Most drivers know to pull over if they see flashing lights in the rear-view mirror, but very few know what to do when they see that same vehicle pulled over on the side of the road. A poll that was released by the National Safety Commission shows that 71 of all drivers in the United States have never even heard of a Move Over law.

According to the National Traffic Incident Management Coalition, 200 roadside workers lose their lives each year due to motorists not obeying the Move Over law. The law is very simple, see flashing lights or workers on the roadside, begin to slow your vehicle down and safely change lanes to give them room to work. Once the vehicle passes the area, then they can resume normal driving.

It is our hope at BMW of Wichita Falls to bring as much awareness to the Move Over law as we possibly can.
