Nevada Highway Patrol increases ‘Move Over’ law enforcement efforts

Over the next several months, the Nevada Highway Patrol will be increasing its enforcement efforts of the “Move Over Law” throughout the state. While NHP continues to conduct traffic stops on a daily basis for a multitude of violations, the focus during this period is this important law that is frequently ignored by motorists.

Since 2003, Nevada law has required drivers to slow down, proceed with caution, and when possible, move to the far lane when passing an official emergency response vehicle that is pulled over on the side of the road with flashing emergency lights. This includes law enforcement vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances and tow trucks.
