It is simple: See a squad car, tow truck, fire truck, ambulance, etc…
Then MOVE OVER! Can’t be any more simpler than that!
From the Illinois State Police:
ISP will conduct statewide enforcement details over the next several weeks to aggressively enforce violations of the Move Over law, also known as “Scott’s Law”, and all distracted driving violations. 🚨
We’d rather have this conversation in an educational setting than on the side of the road. 🤠🚔 #EducationOverEnforcement 👍
➡️A person who violates the Move Over Law, commits a business offense and faces a fine of no less than $250 or more than $10,000 for a first offense.
