Jan. 1, 2015: Changes to Protect Roadside Workers to Take Effect


Under the Slow Down Move Over regulation, drivers must reduce their speed and, if on a multi-lane road, move over to another lane when passing “official vehicles.” A new amendment simplifies the requirement to include all vehicles displaying a flashing red, blue or yellow light so driver won’t have to check to see if the flashing light is on an “official vehicle.” The amendment takes effect on Jan. 1, 2015.
