"This bill is long overdue. Many other states across the nation are adopting such statutes to ensure the safety of their citizens."
- Rep. Holm

 

"An Act relating to motorists moving over or slowing down for emergency vehicles."

HB 438 can save lives and prevent injury.

All over the country law enforcement, emergency, and fire personnel are putting their lives in danger on the roadways. This bill is an opportunity to improve their safety and their working conditions by requiring motorists to slow down and move over.

If emergency personnel, as defined by statute, are pulled over on the side of the road with their emergency lights on, drivers will be required to slow to a reasonable and prudent speed below the speed limit. On a highway with more than two lanes, the motorist will also be required to occupy the lane furthest away from the emergency personnel unless otherwise directed.

This bill is long overdue. Many other states across the nation are adopting such statutes to ensure the safety of their citizens.
