‘Move-over’ law could expand

A bill to broaden Virginia’s "move-over" law has advanced in the House of Delegates.

The current law requires drivers to move to the left when approaching a stopped police, fire or rescue vehicle with flashing lights. (Slowing down generally is not enough , despite what some highway signs say.)

A bill to expand the move-over law for tow trucks and highway maintenance vehicles with flashing amber lights has made it out of a House committee, reports The Virginian-Pilot .
