Radio Spot: Move Over

With the increased holiday traffic on the roads, there are bound to be a few accidents. Do you know what to do when you hear the sirens and see the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle? Move over. It’s the law.

North Carolina law requires motorists to safely move over one lane if possible, and to slow down when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle with flashing lights on the shoulder of the highway.

It’s the safest course of action, and the smartest move you can make. Failure to follow the Move Over law carries a hefty $500 fine. Do the right thing and save your money for holiday shopping!
