Did you know it's the law to move over for stopped emergency vehicles? Help us spread the message!

In 2015, 52 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty—a 13-percent increase from 2013. Traffic-related incidents are the leading cause of death for law enforcement officers. From 2003-2012, there were 676 on-duty law enforcement officers killed in such incidents. Each time a law enforcement officer steps onto the side of the road and stops to help motorist, investigate a crash, or conduct a traffic stop, they are putting their own lives at risk.

To address the heightened danger involved in these roadside stops, every State has enacted “Move Over” laws, requiring motorists to change lanes and/or slow down when approaching stopped emergency vehicles.

Did you know 7 out of 10 Americans have never heard of “Move Over” laws? We need your help in educating all drivers that moving over and giving space to emergency personnel isn’t just a courtesy—It’s the Law and it can save a life. Losing more officers to traffic-related incidents in the line of duty isn’t an option.

The more people hear the message, the more they’ll understand. We are asking for your help to spread the message. Tell motorists to Move Over. It’s the Law. Think about the hundreds of law enforcement officers killed on our Nation’s highways over the last decade. Let’s honor their memory and prevent any future, similar tragedies from happening.

Thank you for your support and help in this effort!
