Video: Beware and be aware of this little-known driving law

You MUST change lanes or slow down to at least 20 mph under the posted speed limit to give law enforcement officers and emergency responders safe clearance on roadsides.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, many motorists still do not understand the importance of this law, which requires motorists to slow down or move over (change lanes) away from emergency vehicles stopped on the side of the roadway with lights flashing. When approaching a police car, ambulance, tow truck, or other emergency vehicle, motorists are required to follow this common sense law. FHP urges motorists to help protect the people who protect you – please move over and let emergency workers do their jobs without the risk of being injured or killed.
