The Maryland Transportation Authority said its officers and Maryland State Police will be on the lookout for violators of the Move Over law Wednesday during a targeted enforcement initiative.
The Move Over law requires drivers approaching an emergency vehicle with visual signals activated to do the following:
- Move into a lane not immediately adjacent to the emergency vehicle.
- Slow down if it is not possible to move.
This week's enforcement operation will encompass the entirety of Interstate 95 in Maryland, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority, with Move Over patrols in effect from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
