"Move Over Law"

On January 1st, 2011 a new law to protect emergency workers and first responders took effect in Delaware.   Called the "Move Over" law, it requires any driver approaching a stopped emergency vehicle that has its lights activated, to either move over into a lane that is not next to the emergency vehicle, or to reduce his or her speed to a "safe speed" while passing the emergency vehicle if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe.  The law applies specifically to roadways having two or more lanes going in the same directions.
