The Slow Down Move Over traffic act requires drivers to do just that, slow down and move over, when passing police cars, emergency vehicles and tow trucks in service on the side of the road.

Unfortunately, a lot of speeders are teenagers, who are not just irresponsible to their own vehicles and lives, but to other people’s health and lives as well.

Speeding is not only dangerous but also is against a law and can cost you a hefty fine and license revocation for a period up to two years without a right for renewal. Please be attentive to the rules and speed limit, school and construction zones, where speeding fines are almost doubled.
