November 9-15 is National Traffic Incident Response Awareness Week. In commemoration, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol will spend this week focused on the “Move Over” Law (State Statute 47:11-314.)
This law mandates motorists on a four or more lane highway to move over if they encounter an emergency vehicle with activated red/blue lights, a wrecker/tow truck with activated emergency lights or any vehicle with flashing/hazard lights activated.
If on a two-lane road, like a city street or county road and the driver cannot move over, they must slow down and proceed with caution around the vehicle on the side of the road.
Failure to move over or slow down can result in being cited and fined.
