FLORIDA’S “MOVE OVER” LAW IS NOT A SUGGESTION….SO IN BREVARD COUNTY YOU CAN EITHER MOVE OVER OR PAY UP!!
There are no excuses that warrant putting other’s lives and your own at risk, especially when risking someone’s life could easily be avoided by moving over or slowing down as Florida’s “Move Over” law directs!! Unfortunately though, we see violators of this law every day and enough is enough!!
This past week while I was personally conducting a traffic stop on I-95, I was in complete disbelief by the amount of vehicles flying by, not one, not two, but four marked law enforcement vehicles with their blue lights on, in violation of Florida’s “Move Over” law!! Folks, there is absolutely no excuse for violating this law that has been in place for years!! It’s very simple…if you cannot move over, you can slow down to allow for the safety of everyone on the side of the road and yourself!!
So in response to those that just simply can’t seem to obey the “Move Over” law, yesterday myself and our Motor Unit were out on I-95 handing out little reminders that cost $139.00 each!!
