Last week a new traffic law went into effect that everyone should be aware of. The new statute requires that drivers passing emergency vehicles on the side of the road slow down to at least 10mph under the posted speed limit. The law also requires drivers to move over one lane if possible (depending on weather and traffic conditions). Failing to follow this law can result in a $400 fine and 2 points on your license.
Here is a link to information on the new statute.
