Some big changes could be coming to Tennessee’s Move Over Law.
The bill really ups the ante on fines for drivers who fail to move into the adjacent lane of traffic or slow down for emergency or service vehicles. It more than doubles the fines. For instance, on the third offense, instead of $1,000, you are looking at $2,500.
The bill would also make drivers move over for any car parked on the shoulder with its hazards on.
It would go into effect in July if passed.
